New 18V X LXT Cooler and Warmer by Makita

Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional tools and accessories, is introducing the 18V X2 LXT 12V/24V DC Auto and AC Cooler/Warmer (DCW180Z). It offers users portable convenience with the option of operating in either cooling mode or warming mode with six settings from 15° all the way to 140°. It is engineered to operate using one 18V LXT battery with the option to operate with two batteries for additional run time (batteries sold separately).

“The DCW180 is portable and powerful, and it’s ideal for job site use as well as camping trips, tailgate parties, and more,” said Mario Lopez, director of product management, Makita U.S.A., Inc. “It’s powered by the same fast-charging 18-volt lithium-ion batteries that are compatible with over 300 LXT products, and can also be be powered by 12V or 24V from a vehicle or corded AC.”

Cooling and Heating Modes

The 18V X2 LXT Cooler/Warmer offers cooling modes with levels at 15ºF, 30ºF, 40ºF, and 50ºF, and the option of two heating modes with levels at 130°F and 140°F. The 20 L (21 qt.) capacity allows users to store a large amount of either food, beverages, or a combination of both and be confident that the Cooler/Warmer will keep items at the temperature indicated. The Cooler/Warmer keeps consistent temperatures using a compressor-type cooler.

Extended Run Time

It operates using one 18V LXT battery with the option to insert one additional battery for extended run time. An L.E.D. display allows users to check the temperature and remaining battery charge. It can also operate using a DC cord from a vehicle using either 12V or 24V, or corded AC for a variety of power options.

At the Job Site or Anywhere Else

Large wheels allow the Cooler/Warmer to be transported over a wide variety of surfaces making it an ideal choice for use on the job site or when enjoying outdoor activities. It has a built-in USB port for charging portable electronic devices and a built-in bottle opener. It weighs only 32 lbs. with two 18V LXT® batteries (batteries sold separately). For added durability, it features water-resistant construction (IPX4 rated) for improved operation in harsh job site conditions.

18V LXT System

It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
