The DCB1800 runs on four DEWALT 20V MAX* batteries, and for high power applications, four 20V MAX* 3.0Ah DEWALT Batteries (DCB200) or higher amp hour are recommended to provide the best results. Not only can the 1800 Watt Portable Power Station™ power a corded tool remotely, but it also becomes a multi-port parallel charger for up to four DEWALT 20V MAX* Batteries when plugged into a wall outlet via extension cord (sold separately). Compact and lightweight, the 1800 Watt Portable Power Station™ weighs just 18lbs (without batteries) and is easily portable. Without the need for gas to run, there are no fumes or carbon monoxide emitted from the device. In addition, the 1800 Watt Portable Power Station™ can be used to provide temporary power in areas where noise is restricted such as a jobsite with strict regulations or even camping and tailgating. With an integrated temperature-controlled cooling fan and heavy-duty roll cage, the Portable Power Station™ is a durable and convenient power solution for a variety of uses.

DEWALT also introduces the new Fast Charger (DCB118) which charges DEWALT 20V MAX* batteries in 60 minutes or less. This charger is fan-cooled to reduce charge time on high capacity DEWALT 20V MAX* batteries. With a focus on ergonomics, the Fast Charger weighs just 1.5lbs and is small and compact for storage and transport. It can be wall-mounted to reduce jobsite clutter, and LED diagnostics indicate charging status and a hot/cold pack delay.

The 1800 Watt Portable Power Station™ is available bare for approximately $399 MSRP (DCB1800B) or kitted with three DCB204 batteries and one DCB606 battery for $599 MSRP (DCB1800M3T1). It is also capable of attaching to the DEWALT Tough System™ storage system, available separately for easy transport. The Fast Charger (DCB118) is available for approximately $79 MSRP. Each product is available this fall where DEWALT products are sold and comes standard with a 90 day money back, one year free service, and three-year limited warranty.

New BOLT Mounting System Wins SEMA 2015 New Product Award

BOLT J-MOUNT JEEP HI-LIFT JACK MOUNT WINS SEMA
2015 NEW PRODUCT AWARD

MILWAUKEE – The new BOLT (Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology) J-Mount(tm) Jeep hi-lift jack bracket mounting system was named a 2015 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association) New Product Award winner in the Van/Pickup/Sport Utility category. With 16 different award categories, this popular annual competition recognizes outstanding achievements in the development of products being introduced to the specialty automotive aftermarket at the SEMA Show.

BOLT’s uniquely-designed Jeep accessory, the J-Mount, allows Jeep TJ and JK off-road enthusiasts to securely attach their hi-lift jack to the side of their vehicle for easy, vertical access, and features the one-key convenience of BOLT lock technology. This patented innovation permanently programs the lock to the Jeep owner’s vehicle ignition key, eliminating the need for extra keys.  Once the ignition key is inserted into the lock cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down and the first time the key is rotated, the cylinder is uniquely coded to that key.  An auto-return spring locks automatically when the key is removed.

SEMA used a number of important product aspects as judging criteria for the award, including potential, innovativeness, consumer appeal, quality and workmanship, and availability (cost). “We designed the J-Mount and our other Jeep products to offer the simplified, convenient security of BOLT’s one-key lock technology to Jeep owners, on-the-go consumers that really benefit from easy access to protect their vehicle’s accessories, spare tire, under-hood contents, trailers and equipment,” said Erika Garcia, BOLT national sales manager. SEMA attendees can learn more about the J-Mount and all of BOLT’s products at Booth #35133 Upper South Hall. For more information on the complete selection of Jeep lock products, visit BOLTLock.com.

BOLT and other SEMA New Product Award winners will be recognized at the annual SEMA Industry Awards Banquet on the evening of Thursday, November 5.

The weatherproof BOLT Coupler Pin Lock fits couplers from 1/2-inch to 3 3/8-inch and is adjustable in increments of 1/8-inch, allowing for a snug fit in any size. The lock is designed to slide easily along the stainless steel pin and is engineered with no exposed shackle, helping further deter theft. It features a plate tumbler sidebar to prevent picking and bumping and its stainless steel lock shutter helps keep out dirt and moisture.

“The Coupler Pin Lock is designed for a wide range of coupler sizes, offering towing versatility in addition to the improved level of security BOLT technology provies,” said BOLT National Sales Manager Erika Garcia.

For complete towing security and maximum convenience, the Coupler Pin Lock can be used with the 5/8-inch BOLT Receiver Lock, which is used to lock the trailer to the hitch.
