Cooler/warmer can keep consistent temperatures with six settings from 15° to 140°F.
Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of professional tools and accessories, is introducing the 18V X2 LXT 12V/24V DC Auto and AC Cooler/Warmer.
The cooler 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°, said Makita.
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.
Mario Lopez, director of product management, Makita U.S.A., Inc., said the DCW 180 is “powered by the same fast-charging 18-volt lithium-ion batteries that are compatible with over 300 LXT products, and can also be powered by 12V or 24V from a vehicle or corded AC.”
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-liter (21 qt.) capacity allows users to store a large amount of either food, beverages, or a combination of both, said the company.
Water-resistant construction, the 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, said the firm.
It has a built-in USB port for charging portable electronic devices and a built-in bottle opener.
