DEWALT Announces New USB Power Source
DEWALT® Launches New 20V MAX*/12V MAX** USB Power Source
TOWSON, Md. – July 30, 2013 – DEWALT® announces the launch of its new 20V MAX* /12 MAX** USB Power Source (DCB090). The new USB Power Source is compatible with all 20V MAX* and 12V MAX** slide style battery packs and allows users to connect and charge up to two small electronic, USB-compatible devices at a time. The durable and lightweight (.5 lbs) DCB090 is ideal for charging mobile phones, most tablets, MP3 players, and other digital audio devices on or off the jobsite when AC power is not readily available or convenient. “We noticed electronic devices are being used more and more on the jobsite, and users are often frustrated about being forced to leave their devices in their vehicle or in a remote location to recharge them,” says Todd Plajzer, Product Manager, DEWALT. “The USB Power Source provides a convenient and portable charging solution on or off the jobsite.”
The DCB090 includes an LED State of Charge indicator that displays the amount of battery power immediately after it is mated with the battery pack and is ready to begin charging. The LED indicator shuts off after 10 seconds to conserve the battery. The DCB090 will retail for $29.99 and will be available wherever DEWALT products are sold in September. The USB Power Source comes with a three-year limited warranty, one-year full warranty, and 90-day money-back guarantee.
