It can charge their 18V batteries along with the newer 12V CXT slide pack batteries. Dual voltage chargers are nothing new as Dewalt and Milwaukee have had them for their 12V and 18V cordless systems but never before has Makita had one. It’s also interesting to note that Bosch just recently announced their own dual voltage charger.
The website doesn’t say but I’m assuming it can only charge one battery at a time. It should be first in, first charged just like everyone elses dual voltage chargers. Also unlike modern chargers, I don’t see any mention of a built in USB port.
