Overview

The Makita DC18RC Li-ion 7.2 / 14.4 / 18v LXT Charger, uses Intelligent Charging Technology to control current, voltage and temperature to maximize the battery life.

The CPU built into the DC18RC charger communicates with the individual batteries and analyses its condition, the battery may have been abused by heat, overdischarging, or weathered by cycle-age.

Makita Lithium-ion battery chargers evenly charge throughout all the cells in the battery, on discharging the battery draws evenly resulting in an optimum charge.

Cells in some other brands of batteries are not charged evenly, resulting in cells not being used completely, so workloads are decreased at a charge.

The Makita DC18RC analyses the data stored in the battery chip to decide on the best charging method at that time.

Makita Forced Air Cooling Fan technology cools the battery during charging by forcing cool air through the battery' s built-in air vents prolonging the life of the battery.

The cooling system blows cool air into the battery & as a result when high temperatures occur in the battery it cools the battery so the life of the battery is extended + the charging process is accelerated as well.

Built in sounds let you know charging status and completion.

This innovative technology from Makita results in longer battery life.

The DC18RC can charges a BL1830B 18v LXT 3.0Ah battery in approximately 22 minutes - and to the fullest charge.

Charges the Makita LXT range of Batteries BL1830B 3.0 a/h, BL1840B 4.0 a/h & BL1850B 5.0 a/h batteries.

Features

  • Fast charging - charges Li-Ion 3.0Ah battery in only 22 minutes
  • Built-in CPU - gathers information from the battery's memory chip to determine optimum charging method
  • Built-in cooling fan system that blows cool air into the battery, which keeps the battery cool during the charging process. This helps to extend the overall battery life and accelerate the charging process
  • Digital power display with 3 active charging colours identifies the condition of the battery and charging condition
  • Makita’s 18V & 14V batteries have a built in memory chip that records the battery usage history. While the battery is connected it will transmit the data to the charger
  • A great advantage of Lithium Ion technology is that it provides the user with the possibility to charge the batteries anytime, without any need to wait for their complete power deployment. A great improvement compared to older technologies like Ni-Cad
  • When used in conjunction with charging adapter ADP03 this charger offers also the possibility of charging Ni-MH slide on batteries of 9.6V to 24V batteries or when used with charging adapter ADP04 this charger offers the possibility to charge Ni-Cd and Ni-MH rod and block batteries of 7.2V to 18V batteries
