Back in mid-2016, I came across a new Dewalt 20V/12V Max charger model number, DCB115. I asked my Dewalt contact about how it differs from the DCB101 charger that I was familiar with.
The DCB115 has a smaller footprint and a small improvement in charge time.
The response came in 2 days after my daughter was born. I was incredibly busy and must have forgotten all about it. Fast forward to yesterday, I opened a new Dewalt tripod LED worklight test sample that had just arrived, and inside the box was a DCB115 charger.
The new tripod LED worklight was introduced at this year’s Dewalt new tool media event.
I had a DCB101 charger nearby, and both look to be about the same size. I didn’t take measurements or look to closely, and so I didn’t take notice of the difference in footprint.
Looking at the back, both have a 4.0Ah charging rate. But I’m guessing maybe new optimizations could make the DCB115 a little faster than the older charger.
*Gasp!* There are keyhole slots for mounting the charger on a wall or tool box!!
This charger isn’t brand new, but this might be my first encounter with it, or at least my first awareness. Usually when a new Dewalt cordless power tool sample comes in, I give the tool some exercise, but I make use of my current charger(s).
I’m going to have to look through my stash to see if there are any more of these DCB115 mountable chargers!
You can buy the charger separately, and it also comes in some 20V Max tool kits.
Dewalt’s DCB118 charger also has mounting slots. You can buy that charger separately, too, and it comes bundled in FlexVolt tool kits.
Am I the last person to find out about this?
I’m curious – do you care if your chargers are wall-mountable?
