German term or phrase: Akkubetrieb
Das Gerät ist einfach zu bedienen und funktioniert im Akkubetrieb. Talking about a "Bohrmeßgerät" (I would also appreciate ideas on the translation of Bohrmeßgerät)which checks whether wood has internal damage which is not visible externally by means of a Widerstandsmeßverfahren.

Explanation:
Rechargeable batteries are quite frequently referred to as "Akku" (Akkumulator). The device is battery operated and easy to use.

As for Bohrmeßgerät, I couldn't find anything. You might have to coin a phrase based on the description you have, maybe measuring drill will work?

Meßgerät n / measuring instrument

Good luck
