Metabo HPT (formerly Hitachi Power Tools) has launched its first 4-Port Battery Charger (model UC18YTSL). It conveniently charges multiple 36V MultiVolt and 18V Metabo HPT/Hitachi batteries along with two USB compatible accessories, and it’s also equipped with two AC outlets to power additional electric devices. Users can increase charging speed and decrease downtime on any jobsite with this feature-laden charger. Multiple ports charge up to four lithium-ion slide batteries simultaneously, or one-by-one, depending on which charging mode the user prefers. In multi-mode, the charger will charge all the batteries uniformly and at the same time. In normal mode, the charger will charge batteries in sequence from port 1 to port 4.
