2 New Dewalt Flexvolt Tools – Bluetooth LED Large Area Light & Bluetooth Radio / Charger

Following the release of Dewalts latest dual voltage Flexvolt batteries and newly developed 60V and 120V Dewalt Flexvolt power tools are a couple of new Flexvolt tools added to the mix. Dewalt has added a redesigned radio that can charge the new Flexvolt batteries, run on the batteries for a cordless radio experience, and also includes bluetooth wireless capability. I reviewed their previous 20V max radio and it was a great radio because it ran off 12V and 20V batteries and also charged them but I wished it had bluetooth connectivity. This new Flexvolt bluetooth radio / charger DCR025 fixes that. It also offers the same convenience of Dewalt jobsite radios of the past such as the roll cage design which has now been toned down, and built in AC outlets.

Next on the list is a new Dewalt 20V Max corded / cordless Bluetooth LED Large Area Light with all sorts of bells and whistles including a super duper 7,000 lumens of brightness, wow that’s a lot of lumens! Then it also has bluetooth connectivity, no, not for streaming songs on the light but so you can control the light output directly from your smartphone using the Dewalt app. This light can be operated on Dewalt 20V batteries or Flexvolt batteries for cordless use and can also be plugged into an outlet for unlimited runtime. It also has AC outlets to daisy chain multiple lights or power a corded tool.

I know I told you there were 2 new tools and the 2 above tools are new to the Flexvolt system but I also wanted to mention the Dewalt FLEXVOLT 1800 watt Portable Power Station. This is also a new Flexvolt tool but it was announced with the original New Flexvolt system so it’s not new new. The reason I wanted to bring it up is because when I first seen this, I assumed it was a simple 4 bay charger but it’s far more than that. Besides the ability to charge 4 Dewalt 20V and Flexvolt batteries, it’s also a full fledged power source for use with just about anything corded that draws 120V at up to 15 amps. Think of it like a portable jobsite generator except that instead of running on gasoline, it requires that you plug in 4 Dewalt 20V or Flexvolt batteries so it can be used as a power station. This is perfect for working anywhere where there is no power on site. This power station isn’t cheap at $399 and that includes the power station only. You can purchase it as a kit with four batteries for $599.
