Makita is a leading innovator in cordless tools with the worlds largest system powered by 18-Volt lithium-ion slide-style batteries, as well as an expanding system of compact 12-Volt MAX CXT solutions. For users of both the 18-Volt and 12-Volt systems, Makita offers increased convenience with the 18-Volt LXT/12-Volt MAX CXT Lithium-Ion Rapid Optimum Charger. The DC18RE will charge 18-Volt LXT and 12-Volt MAX CXT slide-style batteries and shares many of the same efficiency features of Makita's groundbreaking LXT charging system. The DC18RE has a built-in fan to cool the battery by forcing air through the battery's air vents during the charging process for faster charging. The charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature. In addition, the DC18RE is engineered to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature during charging. The result is category-leading charge times. For Makita 18-Volt LXT batteries, the DC18RE will charge a 2.0 Ah battery in only 25-minutes, a 3.0 Ah battery in only 30-minutes, a 4.0 Ah battery in only 40-minutes, a 5.0 Ah in only 45-minutes and a 6.0 Ah battery in only 55-minutes. For 12-Volt MAX CXT slide-style batteries, the DC18RE will charge a 2.0 Ah battery in only 30-minutes and a 4.0 Ah battery in only 60-minutes. The DC18RE is a sequential charger and will charge 1 battery at a time.

Thank you for your question. Yes, the DC18RE 18V LXT® / 12V max CXT® Lithium-Ion Rapid Optimum Charger can be wall mounted by following the instructions on page 5 of the included instruction manual.

Why doesn't this come with Makita 18V tool set like Milwaukee has done? More people would try Ma...

Thank you for your suggestion. The Makita tool kits currently contain a charger for the included batteries, but we are always looking for ways to improve.

Rapid charging for both LXT and CXT
Only slightly larger footprint than the standard LXT Rapid Optimum charger, noticeably taller as well, but rapid-charges both LXT and CXT platforms. Beyond reducing the clutter of separate chargers for each platform, it’s especially beneficial for CXT since they generally only include Makita’s “regular” (read: slow) chargers with their kits. An additional nicety is this unit has slots on the bottom in case you want to hang it on a wall, something that is lacking on the LXT-only Rapid Optimum chargers. Only charges one battery at a time, but I seldom find that to be a nuissance. As far as I can tell Makita seems to have ditched the user-selectable musical chimes that notify you when charging is finished. I think I would have preferred they kept it but that’s a pretty trivial niggle. Overall love it.
