DEWALT® announces the continued expansion of the FLEXVOLT® System with the dual-voltage 20V/60V MAX* FLEXVOLT 12.0Ah Battery (DCB612). In addition, DEWALT announces the new 4-Port Fast Charger (DCB104) which simultaneously charges four FLEXVOLT 12.0Ah Batteries (sold separately) in 120 minutes. By combining long runtime with fast charge time, DEWALT reduces downtime on the jobsite.
The 20V/60V MAX* FLEXVOLT 12.0Ah Battery (DCB612) is optimized for use in new and existing DEWALT tools designed for high-power applications. These tools include the new 2,100 Max Watts Out (MWO) 9 in. 60V MAX* Cut-Off Saw (DCS690) as well as the existing 2,400 MWO 60V MAX* 7-1/4 in. Worm Drive Style Saw (DCS577), the 1,700 MWO 60V MAX* 4.5 in. to 6 in. Grinder (DCG414), and the 2,100 MWO 120V MAX* 12 in. Double Bevel Compound Sliding Miter Saw (DHS790). DEWALT FLEXVOLT batteries are also backwards compatible with most DEWALT 20V MAX* tools.
The 4-Port Fast Charger (DCB104) not only charges the new 20V/60V MAX* FLEXVOLT 12.0Ah Battery (DCB612), but it also offers multi-platform versatility for use with 12V MAX* and 20V MAX* DEWALT batteries. The Fast Charger is compatible with the ToughSystem® storage system allowing for convenient transport and storage. Including through-hole wall mounts, a cord wrap, and transport handles, the Fast Charger can be conveniently carried from truck to tool crib. In addition, the 4-Port Fast Charger is Tool Connect™ Tag Ready™, providing a flat surface where the Tag (sold separately) can be attached. Tool Connect is a 3-part inventory management solution that encompasses the Tool Connect Inventory Manager web portal, the Tool Connect mobile app, and connected products.
From 1.5Ah to 3.0Ah compact batteries, 4.0Ah to 6.0Ah XR® batteries, and 6.0Ah to 12.0Ah FLEXVOLT batteries, DEWALT offers the right combination of ergonomics and runtime for just about any application, while innovative charging solutions keep batteries ready for use. Coming in summer 2018, the 20V/60V MAX* FLEXVOLT 12.0Ah Battery (DCB612) will be available where DEWALT products are sold for $249 MSRP and will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, three-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.

*With respect to 12V MAX* - Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 12 volts. Nominal voltage is 10.6.
*With respect to 20V MAX* - Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.
*With respect to 60V MAX* - Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 60 volts. Nominal voltage is 54.
*With respect to 120V MAX* - Based on using 2 DEWALT 60V MAX* li-ion batteries, combined having a maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) of 120 volts and a nominal voltage of 108.
In addition, the DEWALT Bluetooth Enabled 100 Foot Laser Distance Measure TLM99S (DW099S) is a recent addition to Tool Connect products that allows users to store measurements, mark-up photos and save them on the Tool Connect app. Other functions include calculating area and volume, as well as performing simple addition and subtraction. The user can adjust the speed and torque for applications that require consistency and limited variability. The brightness and delay setting of each tool’s LED light is also customizable. Specific to the Stackable Corded/Cordless LED Area Light with Tool Connect & Built-in Charger, power, brightness, and schedule can be set from a mobile phone and adjusted within 100 feet. Another tool-specific feature that can be customized, found exclusively in the 20V MAX* XR® Tool Connect Hammerdrill (DCD997), is Bind-Up Control™. Specific customization features of the 20V MAX* XR® Tool Connect Impact Driver (DCF888) is PrecisionDrive™ technology which allows the Impact Driver to stall for one second before impacting. This protects the fastener and material surface and provides the user with maximum control during applications that require a high level of craftsmanship. Finally, diagnostics can monitor productivity by counting the number of trigger pulls and duration of tool use. These features plus others provide important information on tool use, temperature, battery charge and more.
