The DC10SA charger greatly reduces the charging time for Makita 10.8 V Lithium-ion slide-on batteries. It can take as little as 22 minutes to charge a 1.5Ah battery. The unit features a forced air cooling system which helps speed charging and extends the battery's life span. The case has an LED display showing the status of the battery. If permanently in the workshop you can mount the DC10SA on the wall to save valuable space.
