10C Technologies' Universal Battery Charger
We're thrilled to award 10C Technologies' Crew Charge universal battery charger system, which can recharge different brands, voltages, and types of batteries simultaneously, including NiMH, nicad, and lithium-ion. Special adapters for each type of battery and many brands fit into the charger for 15-minute charge times. The company credits its Low Heat charging system with extending battery life and even revitalizing older batteries. We'll probably never see interchangeable batteries from tool manufacturers, so this system will be a welcome jobsite solution for a long time to come. 10C Technologies: Crew Charge: $399, adapters $35 each. 800-984-3086.
