Charging Technology: Rapid Optimum Charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature; and has a built-in fan to cool the battery to produce more lifetime work.
More Work: LXT Lithium-Ion batteries and Rapid Optimum Chargers produce 430% total lifetime work with 2.5x more cycles than Ni-Cd batteries.
Faster Charging: 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries charge in 30 minutes. 18V Compact Lithium-Ion Batteries charge in 15 minutes; 4X Faster than Ni-Cd batteries.
- Less Weight: LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries weigh 40% less than Ni-Cd.
- 1.5 amp-hour capacity
- 5x lower self-discharge keeps battery cells active and ready for use, even after long periods of storage
- Charging at any time will have no effect on the battery
- Built-in shock absorbing features protect the battery
- Sixteen firm holding contact terminals reduce the risk of power loss/fluctuation in high vibration work environments
- Battery's built-in memory chip communicates with the charger to maximize battery life using 3 Active Controls (Current, Voltage & Thermal)
- Can be used with chargers: DC18RA and DC18SC
