Fully charging a 4ampHour battery can take up to 2 hours. This is not because the chargers are slow, but because the batteries have a high capacity.

    • 10.8V 1.5ampHour Lithium-Ion battery
    • 2-Speed Variable & Reverse gearbox
    • 10mm Keyless Chuck

    • Single-Speed Variable & Reverse
    • ¼" Hex Tool Holder
    • 107Nm Sustained Torque
    • All-Metal Gearbox

Bits for used in the Impact Driver should be the longer type with a securing notch. The knurled ring surrounding the bit holder is pushed forwards to release the bits (they are inserted simply by pushing them into place).

The charger for the DeWalt Drill and Driver features battery temperature detection, and pauses charging if the battery pack is too warm or cold.
