Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is James and I will help with your query today.

What is the model number of the hoover it should have a number marked ENR, this will allow me to see likely cost of parts and can advise if a repair would be viable.

Please reply using the chat box at the bottom of this page.

Based on it being a Bosch Athlet with a 25.2 lithium battery its most likely to be ENR BCH625K2GB.

Which means the batery doesn't comes as a part by itself, its part 0109 in the diagram here. This is the accumulator (motor and battery), and costs around £150 from somewhere such as here.

 

 

Is there anything else I can can assist you with?

No that’s it thank you, you can get the 28 volt one for £109:00 off eBay so I think I may do that instead,, but thanks for your assistance..
best regards Kevin.
