Expert Review

Edged in sturdy black roll bars and a high-impact plastic cabinet, the DeWalt DC012 can charge all 7.2 to 18V battery packs. Just plug the unit into any typical AC outlet and the radio will power up Li-ION and Ni-Cad of any voltage in about an hour. What's great about this set up is that the radio also comes with outlets of its own, for extra power around the job site.

As far as the radio is concerned, it's equipped with a digital FM tuner giving you 15 preset channels to program your favorite stations and a 3.5mm auxiliary port to plug any iPod, smartphone, tablet or other mobile devices into the radio. Sound quality is quite good although it favors the low-end frequencies most, providing thick bass with some of the middle and high-ends getting lost in the output. This radio thumps and it can get real loud with little to no distortion, even when it’s cranked all the way up. You're going to hear it no matter what you're working on or where you're doing it in the shop.Rating: 4.75/5
