TOWSON, MD. – August 5, 2013

Today, DEWALT announces the launch of its new compact worksite radio (DCR018).

This unit includes the Multi-Portâ„¢ interface. The compact worksite radio is a small, light weight (6 lbs. without battery), versatile, and portable radio for quick and convenient use on and off the jobsite.

This unit includes the Multi-Portâ„¢ interface which allows it to be powered by the DEWALT 18V stem pack lithium ion or Nicad batteries as well as any of the 12V MAX or 20V MAX slide pack lithium ion batteries.

The new DCR018 compact radio can also be powered by AC power when preferred, providing flexibility on the jobsite, and includes an integrated cord wrap for easy storage.  

Features of the compact radio include a digital tuner, bright backlit LCD display with clock, and five AM/FM presets. The compact radio also features a device storage box that helps to protect electronic devices from jobsite dust and debris and houses USB power and auxiliary ports. USB-compatible devices can be charged via the USB power port when the radio is plugged into a wall outlet, and the auxiliary port allows for connection to CD, MP3, and other digital audio devices.  

The 360-degree protective roll cage with hanging cut outs provides durability and versatility when using on and off the jobsite.

The DCR018 compact radio will be available in stores in September, will retail for between $99.00 and $129.00, and comes with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money back guarantee.

BUT IT DOES NOT CHARGE A BATTERY??? Why not?? It is just a radio??? What were Ya thinkin? A "tool" would also charger all of the batteries that it uses! Come on DeWalt guys!

I do love my radio but I need a charger that does it all too!!! Since I have so many DeWalt tools that DO NOT use the same battery!!! And DeWalt does not make all of its tools to fit only one battery system!

He charger adds 60-70 bucks to the price tag.if it chafed both types of batteries (18 and 20v), it would be even more.  Taking the charger off of this one was to take the price point down so that people who do not want to pay for the charger function do not have to.  If you need the charger, buy the dc012 or dcr015 depending on your voltage.

And obviously not all tools are available in both platforms. The 20v line is only a few years old, and is growing extremely fast.
