Is The New Flexvolt 54V Battery Really Worth It?

It is no secret that when it comes to using cordless power tools the life and power of your battery plays an important part in how well your tool performs. The Dewalt XR Flexvolt 54V battery has made high powered heavy-duty construction applications cordless for the first time ever. Giving professional tradesmen the freedom to work cable-less without compromising on power and runtime.

But even though the new XR Flexbolt 54V has revolutionised cordless power tools, how does the battery perform during long jobs and will the charging process be efficient enough to make projects run smoothly? Thankfully DeWalt are well ahead of the game and have introduced a new Battery Charger unlike any seen before.

Introducing the new DeWalt DCB104 18v 54v Flexvolt XR Battery Charger

The new DeWalt DCB104 18V, 54V Flexvolt Four-port XR Battery Charger is the must-have companion for all DeWalt tool users. Not only does it allow you to charge up to 4 batteries at once, but it also charges the entire DeWalt lithium-ion battery range from 10.8v – 18v as well as the new FlexVolt 54 Volt batteries. Making it a universal DeWalt battery charger.

But what about charge time? One of the many bugbears of cordless tools is the sometimes long charge times that can compromise workflow and put important jobs on hold. The new DCB104 Battery charger is one of the fastest with it charging 4 Dewalt 54v 9.0ah batteries in only 75 mins!
