Dewalt has just announced a new higher capacity battery pack. The new Dewalt DCB612 battery will be compatible with FlexVolt and 20V Max tools, and boasts a 12.0Ah capacity.
There will also be a new 4-port charger (DCB104) that can recharge up to 4 of the new 12.0Ah battery packs, simultaneously, in 120 minutes. Slower chargers will take a lot longer, and so you’ll want one of the new chargers, or at least a FlexVolt rapid charger.
The new 12.0Ah battery will charge from any Dewalt 20V Max charger, except maybe charger radios that can’t fit the new battery pack in enclosed compartments.
ETA: Summer 2018
The 20V/60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® 12.0Ah Battery (DCB612) is optimized for use in new and existing DEWALT tools designed for high-power applications.
What kind of new tools do you think they’re talking about? My vote is for a 120V Max (dual FlexVolt battery) 10″ table saw.
