Earlier this year we brought you news of new Makita power tools that would give you 36v of cordless power via the use of two 18v lithium-ion batteries. Great idea, but some of you lamented the lack of a charging station that would charge two of your li-ion batteries at once.

Perversely, it would seem, DeWALT was listening to you requests, as the company has launched a new charging stationthat will do just what you want; simultaneously charge 2 of your batteries and much more. It's a simple premise, and you have to wonder when Makita, Bosch and the rest will step up with something similar.

Here's our exclusive overview of it, filmed in DeWALT's UK training centre (click to watch on Toolstop TV).

Let's dive into some of the features of the DCB102 twin charging station to see what you get for your cash and why you should buy one.

Dewalt DCB102 XR Multi Voltage Twin Port Charging Station with USB
First off, one of the key reasons you need the DCB102 isn't just that it'll charge two of your XR batteries at once, but also that'll it take any XR battery in the range, from 10.8v to 18v, and capacity-wise, all the way up to 5Ah.

This makes it the perfect addition to any DeWALT cordless power tool user who has a mixture of batteries that they rely on daily.

As you can see, it features the familiar and comfortable slide on/off functionality, making it quick and simple to use.

Then, once your batteries are inserted and charging, the unit has two lights on the front which flash to indicate the charge state of the packs.

Why Just Charge Your DeWALT XR Batteries When You Can Also Charge Your Phone?

This isn't the first nifty little tweak on the XR battery DeWALT has released, remember the DCB090 USB Charging XR Battery Adapter? Yeah, it was great too.

DeWALT has gone several steps further by engineering in two USB charging ports on the front of the unit. Now all you need to do is plug in your phone, mp3 player, tablet, SatNav, or anything that takes a charge from a USB cable, and you'll never worry about not being able to check the Toolstop Facebook Page on the commute home ever again.

This unit makes great sense, one plug for this unit versus the many you need for all your individual chargers. I've had a different model for my 18 volt tools and am upgrading to 20 volt system. Think about it, then buy one. You will never pull out your single chargers again!!

Seems like a waste of money to me. For the same price I could buy three DCB105's or if USB charging was such a need two 105's and a DCB090...
