It’s a common problem and a simple solution: As cordless tools become more popular on the farm, there’s a constant need to charge batteries — sometimes simultaneously. Milwaukee Tool’s M18 Six Pack Sequential Charger offers a compact design to charge multiple batteries from its cordless line.
The design includes integrated hang holes for vertical mounting and a pass-through plug to conserve outlet space. It will charge M18 compact batteries in 30 minutes and extended capacity (XC) batteries in 60 minutes. The benefit for users is that they can reduce the amount of time spent stopping projects and changing out batteries, which will increase productivity.
Another battery-charging invention from Milwaukee Tool is the first charging radio to bring the power of Bluetooth® to the field or shop. The M18 Jobsite Radio/Charger allows the user to stream rich, full sound wirelessly from over 100 feet away, says the company. In addition, it serves as a quick and convenient charging station for M18 batteries and portable electronic devices.
In addition, the USB port charges most portable electronic devices quickly, and is the only device charger on the market that can work off of battery power, rather than just AC power.
A reinforced roll cage and extruded aluminum handles protect internal components from weather and abusive job site conditions. The radio/charger also offers the industry’s largest on-board, weather-sealed storage compartment to protect small belongings and electronic devices. The user can convert the radio into a portable entertainment center while charging tablets.
It comes complete with an AM/FM tuner with a digital processor, customizable equalizer, optimized speaker orientation and an on-board bottle opener.
