Dewalt’s latest radio charger, model DCR015, is compatible with their 20V and 12V Li-ion battery packs. The jobsite-tough radio boasts a full 360° roll cage and bumpers for added impact and shock protection, integrated battery charger, 2 AC power outlets, AUX media port, USB charging port, and an enclosed media bay.

It can be powered via an AC power source, as well as 12V and 20V batteries.
The AUX power allows for connection to external MP3 players, CD players, satellite radio receivers, and any other device with headphone or line-out jacks. A built-in USB port offers convenient charging for your smartphones and mobile devices.
Dewalt expects for the DCR015 12V/20V radio charger to be available via dealers starting April 1st, 2013, with an MSRP of $179.
Runtime, charging times, and outlet amperage are TBD.
Although the radio is compatible with 12V and 20V batteries, my feeling is that it will be in much greater demand with Dewalt 20V users than 12V users.
