DEWALT® Debuts Two New Charging Solutions
TOWSON, MD (March 10, 2020) – DEWALT announces the 12 Amp Fast Charger (DCB1112) and 6 Amp Charger (DCB1106) for efficient charging. For use in tough jobsite conditions, these chargers allow professionals to quickly charge their DEWALT batteries and get back to work.
The 12 Amp Fast Charger has the highest charge rate supporting the DEWALT 20V MAX* and FLEXVOLT® lithium ion battery systems, charging a DEWALT FLEXVOLT® Battery (DCB609) to 80% capacity in under 45 minutes (battery sold separately). The 12 Amp Fast Charger comes with Stage 1 and Stage 2 LED indicators which communicate more to the user about the state of charge of their batteries than DEWALT chargers without these indicators. The Stage 1 LED indicator blinks until the battery is approximately 80% charged, at which point it goes to solid. Once the Stage 1 LED indicator is solid red, the Stage 2 LED indicator starts blinking until the battery is fully charged. The battery is fully charged when both lights are solidly illuminated. This prevents the user from having to remove the battery from the charger to check the state of charge. In addition, the 12 Amp Fast Charger features fan-assisted cooling, through-hole mounts, a latch for transporting the charger with a battery installed, and double insulation that meets UL Compliance.
The 6 Amp Charger offers versatility for a wide variety of charging needs and charges a DEWALT 5.0Ah Battery (DCB205) to 80% capacity in under 45 minutes (battery sold separately). Like the 12 Amp Fast Charger, the 6 Amp Charger also features the Stage 1 & Stage 2 LED format, through-hole mounts, secure latching, double insulation and is compatible with batteries in the DEWALT 20V MAX* and FLEXVOLT® systems. Unlike the 12 Amp Fast Charger, however, the 6 Amp Charger is also compatible with batteries in the DEWALT 12V MAX* system.
Both new chargers were designed to increase productivity while minimizing downtime on jobsites. Available in spring 2020, the 12 Amp Fast Charger will retail for $99 MSRP and the 6 Amp Charger will retail for $79 MSRP. Enhancing the lineup of charging options from DEWALT, these chargers will each come with a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money back guarantee.
