Hitachi Power Tools launches superfast UC18YSL3 battery charger

Hitachi Power Tools has launched its superfast UC18YSL3 18V battery charger, which can fully charge a powerful 6.0Ah Lithium-ion battery in an incredible 38 minutes. One of the fastest battery chargers available for power tools to date in the UK, the launch of the UC18YSL3 means that by taking two 6.0Ah batteries on site, one for use on an 18V power tool and one being charged by the UC18YSL3 on rotation, a tradesperson will never be without cordless battery power.

Hitachi UC18YSL3The UC18YSL3 charger is compatible with all Hitachi slide Li-ion batteries, including 1.5Ah (15mins), 2.0Ah (20mins), 3.0Ah (20mins), 4.0Ah (26mins), 5.0Ah (32mins) and 6.0Ah (38mins).

To add even more convenience and value to the UC18YSL3, Hitachi has also included a USB port so that the all-important mobile phone can be charged at the same time too. The UC18YSL3 is also compatible with engine generators, can charge at low temperatures from -10°C and features a high visibility charge indicator.

“Hitachi Power Tools understands that productivity is important to tradespeople and the UC18YSL3 ensures both the fastest charge times around and the constant flow of power to Hitachi cordless power tools,” explains Simon Miller, Brand and Product Manager for Hitachi Power Tools.
