Makita DC18RC 7.2v-18v LXT Li-ion Fast Charger

The Makita DC18RC fast charger uses Intelligent Charging Technology to control current, voltage and temperature to maximize the battery life. The DC18RC can charge a BL1830B 18v LXT 3.0Ah battery in approximately 22 minutes & a 5ah battery in 45 minutes.

The Makita DC18RC has a cooling fan and Active 3 Controls. This means that during the loading of the charging voltage, charging current, and temperature is held in the holes. The cooling system blows cool air into the battery. As a result, high temperatures occur in the battery, so that the battery life is extended, and the charging process is accelerated.


Makita DC18RC Features


  • Fast charging – charges a Makstar 18v LXT 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
  • Forced air cooling fan – cools the battery to minimise charging time
