The free Tool Connect™ App is a quick and simple way to pair a DeWALT DCB18 XR Bluetooth® Slide Li-Ion Battery with an Apple and Android smart device. This innovation gives you the ability to control your compatible DeWALT battery remotely via a Bluetooth® device.
From the Tool Connect™ App you can select an individual battery to view its diagnostics and change settings.
The Diagnostics Screen: shows an individual battery’s state of charge, temperature, and connection to Bluetooth®. It also allows you to enable or disable a battery. By disabling a battery, you can prevent any unauthorised use, making it easy to shut down equipment at the end of the day to conserve battery life and deter theft.
The Actions Screen: allows you to customise alert preferences. These options include 'Alert if Out of Range', 'Disable if Out of Range', 'Alert at Low Battery Charge', 'Alert at High Temperature' and 'Alert at Charge Completion'. In addition, this screen offers a Lending Button, which allows for sharing of batteries. You can select an amount of time for the tool (with battery) to be lent and when the time is exceeded, the battery will shut down and you will receive an alert.
The Alerts Screen: provides a comprehensive list of all of the alerts generated by the Tool Connect™ App and the compatible DeWALT Bluetooth® batteries. From here, you can select an alert to view more details or clear some or all alerts in the log.
Bluetooth® batteries are compatible with all slide-on DeWALT Li-Ion 18V tools.
