Questions & Answers

What is the difference between DC18RA and DC18RC

Asked by: julior69
There are two main differences, (1) the DC18RC is black, vs. DC18RA is teal; (2 ) DC18RC is more compact and has a smaller profile, but still fits in all of our current cordless kit cases, bags and boxes. There have been no changes to the capabilities of the charger.

wILL THIS CHARGER WORK FOR A1834 18V 2.6aH BATTERY

Asked by: KEN
Thank you for your question regarding this Makita product. To answer your question, yes the Makita DC18RA Lithium-Ion rapid charger will charge the Nickel Metal-Hydride (Ni-MH) Battery 1834 (part # 193159-1); however, a separate battery adapter (part # 193949-2) must be purchased and used in conjunction with the DC18RA charger. Another option is to buy a separate Makita charger (part # DC1804) that will charge all Makita Ni-Cd and Ni-MH pod style and stick style batteries. The Home Depot currently stocks this DC1804 battery charger (SKU 142688).
