AEG BLK1218 Fast Twin Multi Charger – Charges 12V & 18V Batteries Fast

Here’s a full featured dual bay fast charger for your AEG 12V and 18V batteries – the AEG BLK1218 Twin Fast Multi Charger. It’s known as the multi charger in Australia while it’s known as the fast AEG fast twin charger, same model number in both countries.

I don’t know which feature is the bigger news, that it it’s a very fast charger or that it can charge 12v and 18V AEG batteries but both features are present on this charger. As far as the fast charger portion of the charger is concerned, it can charge a 5.0ah battery in 60 minutes which puts it in the realm of the fastest of the fastest chargers from Makita, Bosch, and Milwaukee. While it has the ability to accept and charge 12V and 18V batteries it is a sequential charger meaning that it will only charge one battery at a time while the second battery waits its turn.

Other features include separate charging light indicators for each battery, a single USB charging port, and a very interesting feature is that it comes with two power cords, one for AC power and one for DC power from your vehicles 12V port so you can charge on the go, literally.

This is another great AEG product that I’m sure many of you would love to see surface here in the USA as a Ridgid branded product. However I don’t know when or if we will see this here in the USA as a Ridgid product.

Releasing this makes me wonder if they are going to expand their 12v line as it is pretty slim at the moment. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to have this available if there are only half a dozen or so 12v tools on the market as is the case now.
