I was going through my monthly Harbor Freight coupon catalog when I noticed a new offering coming soon from Hercules, which is a new dual port charger capable of charging their 20v and 12v batteries. This is only the second charger from Hercules capable of charging their 20v and 12v batteries and is the 3rd charger from the brand.

My thoughts: As we’ve seen with the other Hercules tools, they typically give a sneak peek as to what’s coming a few months in advance. However, unlike most of their other Hercules tools, this new dual charger was completely unannounced until it showed up in this month’s coupon catalog. It’s not on the Harbor Freight website yet (at the time of writing), but the catalog has the item number so while I was at my local store I had them look it up in the system which has most of the specs and Features, as well as pricing. Although the picture in the catalog says it’s sequential, I suspect the store computer is more accurate. Features include charging of 2 batteries, either 12v or 20v, simultaneously. Other features include 2 built in USB ports, 2 mounting screw holes, and separate charging indicators for each battery. Unfortunately the charging times are not listed so it’s most likely the same charge speeds as the original, but hopefully they’re better than the original Hercules charger, as it’s good but kinda slow compared to other leading brands of chargers. Overall though this looks like it should be a great addition to the Hercules line for users who need to rotate lots of batteries for more than a couple tools.
