Charging

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

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