Yes, the 8260 has three LED battery life indicators which will illuminate as follows:

  • 3 LEDs: 70-100%

Illuminates for tool overload, excessive tool or battery temperature.  Follow instructions in the Dremel app or the 8260 quick start guide to resolve these issues.

No the runtime of the tool is not affected by the illuminated Dremel logo.

Approximately 95 minutes.

The tool’s default speed setting is 15,000 RPM.  If the tool is turned off and back on:

  • Within 5 minutes, the tool will turn on at its last set speed setting
  • After 5 minutes, the tool will turn on at its default speed setting of 15,000 RPM

If you turn off the tool with the battery still inserted, the tool LEDs will behave as follows:

  • The Bluetooth LED will remain illuminated for 5 minutes as long as your tool is still connected to your smart device.
  • The LED Speed Indicator will remain illuminated for 5 minutes to show the last set speed setting.
  • The Red Warning, Battery Life and Dremel Logo LEDs will remain illuminated for 30 seconds.

To turn off all LEDs, turn off the tool and remove the battery pack.

The 8260 lasts approximately for 12 minutes in heavy duty applications and 25 minutes in light duty applications. Keep in mind, however, that the runtime of any rotary tool is highly dependent on a number of different factors, including the type of application, accessory, material, speed, and technique used.  The estimates provided are based on average use and actual runtimes may vary.  Dremel prides itself on its legacy of engineering rotary tools with the highest standards of quality and performance since 1932, so rest assured that the 8260 will be the best in its class.

Light Duty Applications:


Grinding / Sharpening

Cleaning / Polishing

Carving / Engraving


Heavy Duty Applications:



You can receive tool management and performance alerts, accessory guidance, and more - all from your smartphone or tablet.  These features will help improve your experience with the tool and help to guide you on how to make the most out of your tool.  For safety reasons we advise you to turn the tool off when you want to use the Dremel app to monitor your tool usage.

When the Dremel app is updated our team will ensure that both the app and the 8260 will have equivalent or improved functionality at the time you purchased your 8260.

Brushless motors are more powerful and more efficient than brushed motors due to the configuration of the motor using a permanent magnet as opposed to wound wire coils which are used in brushed motors.  Brushless motors require less maintenance as you don’t need to replace brushes on the motor.  These benefits lead to a more powerful and more efficient Multi-Tool than brushed rotary tools.

The combination of the brushless motor and the 3.0ah battery pack (vs 2.0ah pack used in 8220) contributes to improved performance.  The 8260 lasts twice as long as the 8220 when cutting ¼” zinc plated steel lag bolts (20 minutes vs 10 minutes) and cuts 4 foot of ¾” pine 20% faster than the 8220 (65 seconds vs 84 seconds).

The combination of the brushless motor and the 3.0ah battery pack (vs 2.0ah pack used in 8220) contributes to improved performance.  The 8260 provides 100% more runtime when cutting ¼” zinc plated steel lag bolts vs the 8220 (20 minutes vs 10 minutes).

The RPM of the tool does not directly correlate to the performance of the tool in application.  The speed of the tool in application is affected by multiple factors including the motor.  The brushless motor of the 8260 ensures the tool can cut 4 foot of ¾” pine 20% faster (65 seconds vs 84 seconds) than the Dremel 8220 despite having a lower top speed.

The brushless motor, which runs quieter and smoother than a brushed motor, and the tools venting system, with an improved airflow, help to reduce the noise and vibration of the tool.

No the tool can be operated independently from the Dremel app however the Dremel app has connectivity features to the 8260 which will enhance your experience with the tool.

Yes, the 8260 needs to be connected to your smart device to receive notifications.  Enabling notifications also allows you to receive a low battery alert when your battery is below 10%.

The app will provide green, yellow and red status indicators for tool and battery temperature.  The Dremel App also allows you to enable notifications to receive this information.

If the red warning logo illuminates, the notifications section in the app will provide instructions on how to resolve the issues with the tool.

The Dremel app allows you to control, monitor and manage your 8260. Gain more control over your tool and projects; receive tool management and performance alerts, accessory guidance, and more - all from your smartphone or tablet.
