No it will not. DeWalt until recently had an exclusive patent on this feature. I can tell you from experience, however, that radios with built-in chargers are highly overrated. First, they are notorious for having bad feedback when charging batteries.

First, they are notorious for having bad feedback when charging batteries. Second, when you're charging the batteries, the radio has to be plugged into the wall, taking away completely the benefits of a portable radio. Third, adding that feature would drastically add to the size, weight, and cost of the radio. As long as you have any Makita tools and batteries, this is a MUCH better radio! Read Less

Answer: 
No. None of Makita's job site radios – including the BMR100 and BMR100W – are equipped to charge batteries. The job site radios include an AC adapter and can also run on pod style or slide style Makita batteries, from 9.6V to 18V.

Hello Shawn, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
This radio does not act as a charger. However, the radio can be operated off either the 120 volt cord or any of a variety of Makita batteries.
I hope this helps,
Newf.

Answer: 
If you mean the 12V Max lithium ion, no. It will run on the older style ni-cad or ni-mh pod batteries though. They have a new radio on the Makita website that takes the 12V Max lithium. Should just be a matter of time before its available at homedepot.com

Answer: 
If you want a battery, you have to use Makita's tool batteries and charge them with the Makita charger. This is another expense if you don't use Makita tools, but you could wire in a small 12 Volt DC sealed Lead-Acid battery and charge it in the radio if you know what you're doing. However, this will void the warranty.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Radio @ Good Price Buuuuuuuttt.... But #1: The Radio uses proprietary Makita batteries which don't come with the radio, and are not charged inside the radio. You can run it without a battery if you plug it in. But #2: You don't have control over Bass / Treble. But #3: The blue display backlight is nice, but it automatically shuts off after 10 seconds. Would be nice if it would stay on. Would be even better if the background was black and the numbers lit up. PLUSES: Stereo audio jack to plug iPod into Sound level is more than adequate unless you're working with a jackhammer. Built like the proverbial brick outhouse. Looks "military" - I like it. NOTE: You can get a small sealed 12VDC lead acid battery and wire it to the internal contacts, and drill a hole in the rear cover for a jack to connect a charger. This is what Makita should have done. They are trying to get you to use THEIR batteries so you buy their tools, which is OK, I guess, but using a standard battery pack or a set of hi-capacity D or C batteries that charge inside the radio would have made it more attractive for those who are NOT contractors or have Makita tools. If you don't use a battery, you can store the AC adapter inside the battery compartment when you're transporting the radio; if not, you could put a 6" meatball hero in here with room to spare ;-) August 21, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A BIG Disappointment Does not recharge batteries. Does not run off of the smaller 18v batteries my drill/impact combo pack came with, even though they fit in the battery slot on the back. Power pack and cord to cumbersome to try to fit in the back for storage. Sound is too bassy and can't adjust. Antenna doesn't fold down, so it will break off eventually, or be lost. Does not come close to being good enough to replace my DeWalt job site radio. I guess I was spoiled. I'm returning this to HD. Very dissatisfied. April 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Father's Day gift He already had one of these radios at work and wanted one for home. As they are rather expensive, he didn't feel he could spend the money on another so we got him one for Father's Day July 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I like it! A lot! I purchased this radio several years ago after I got tired of the $40 boom boxes getting destroyed after a couple of months. It had been abused by me right up until the time that someone removed it from the back of my truck, at which time I replaced it, and worked great all that time. I like the sound of this radio a lot. The only time I have a problem with reception is because of the area I am in. I work alone, so the sound is great for me. I also like the input jacks for the mp3/iPod's. I do agree that the one in the rear could have been located in better place, like lower in the cabinet so a straight input jack could be used. I am sure it is nifty to be able to charge the battery while it is plugged in, but I do not miss that feature at all. Because I use my Makita screw gun a lot, I have 3 batteries, one for the radio and two for the drill(the larger version). This way I always have a fresh battery ready to use when one of them drains out. By the time the next battery is done, the next one is ready to use. If I ever kill this thing, I will probably replace it with another. May 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great radio Well made and sounds great couldn't ask for a better radio for the price. June 13, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice sound and battery life This stereo has a nice sound and good volume and bass response for it's size. Recently used it camping with the larger 3.0 amp hour 18v lithium battery and it lasted over 12 hours at around 10-12 volume (goes up to 25) without dying. It will start to distort in the bass at the highest volumes. My only problems are with the design. It is very sturdy in its construction with metal bars in front of the controls so they don't get smashed. It could really use at least one courtesy outlet to charge an ipod which the dewalt work stereos do have (or at least a usb plug for that) as well as a battery indicator. October 12, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great radio… Great radio…great sound It islightweight and durable January 7, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jobsite Radio Overall the radio sounds great, compact, and works with tool batteries., Seems very durable. The problem is why I bought it, for use with an ipod on the jobsite. You can't put an mp3, or ipod inside and plug it in. The aux 2 jack is right behind where the battery slides in and you can't plug the cord in and put the battery in. I called makita and they said plug it in the front, this defeats the purpose of protecting your ipod on the jobsite. Thought about taking it apare and drilling another hole to move the jack. Going to take it back and find another one. April 13, 2011
