The vibration emission level given in this information sheet
has been measured in accordance with a standardised test
given in EN50636 and may be used to compare one tool
with another. It may be used for a preliminary assessment
of exposure.
WARNING: The declared vibration emission level
represents the main applications of the tool. However if
the tool is used for different applications, with different
accessories or poorly maintained, the vibration
emission may differ. This may significantly increase the
exposure level over the total working period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration
should also take into account the times when the tool
is switched off or when it is running but not actually
doing the job. This may significantly reduce the
exposure level over the total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect the
operator from the effects of vibration such as:
maintain the tool and the accessories, keep the hands
warm, organisation of work patterns.
You have chosen a DeWALT tool. Years of experience,

Charging a Battery (Fig. B)
1. Plug the charger into an appropriate outlet before
inserting battery pack.
2. Insert the battery pack 7 into the charger, making sure
the battery pack is fully seated in the charger. The red
(charging) light will blink repeatedly indicating that the
charging process has started.
3. The completion of charge will be indicated by the red
light remaining ON continuously. The battery pack is
fully charged and may be used at this time or left in the
charger. To remove the battery pack from the charger,
push the battery release button 8 on the battery pack.
NOTE: To ensure maximum performance and life of lithiumion battery packs, charge the battery pack fully before first use.
Charger Operation
Refer to the indicators below for the charge status of the

Charge Indicators
Fully Charged
Hot/Cold Pack Delay*
*The red light will continue to blink, but a yellow indicator
light will be illuminated during this operation. Once the
battery pack has reached an appropriate temperature, the
yellow light will turn off and the charger will resume the
charging procedure.
The compatible charger(s) will not charge a faulty battery
pack. The charger will indicate faulty battery by refusing to
light or by displaying problem pack or charger blink pattern.
NOTE: This could also mean a problem with a charger.
If the charger indicates a problem, take the charger and
battery pack to be tested at an authorised service centre.
Hot/Cold Pack Delay
When the charger detects a battery pack that is too hot
or too cold, it automatically starts a Hot/Cold Pack Delay,
suspending charging until the battery pack has reached an
appropriate temperature. The charger then automatically
switches to the pack charging mode. This feature ensures
maximum battery pack life.
A cold battery pack will charge at a slower rate than a warm
battery pack. The battery pack will charge at that slower rate
throughout the entire charging cycle and will not return to
maximum charge rate even if the battery pack warms.
The DCB118 charger is equipped with an internal fan
designed to cool the battery pack. The fan will turn on
automatically when the battery pack needs to be cooled.
Never operate the charger if the fan does not operate
properly or if ventilation slots are blocked. Do not permit
foreign objects to enter the interior of the charger.
Electronic Protection System
XR Li-Ion tools are designed with an Electronic Protection
System that will protect the battery pack against
overloading, overheating or deep discharge.
The tool will automatically turn off if the Electronic
Protection System engages. If this occurs, place the lithiumion battery pack on the charger until it is fully charged.
Wall Mounting
These chargers are designed to be wall mountable or to sit
upright on a table or work surface. If wall mounting, locate
the charger within reach of an electrical outlet, and away
from a corner or other obstructions which may impede
air flow. Use the back of the charger as a template for the
location of the mounting screws on the wall. Mount the
charger securely using drywall screws (purchased separately)
at least 25.4 mm long with a screw head diameter of
7–9 mm, screwed into wood to an optimal depth leaving
approximately 5.5 mm of the screw exposed. Align the slots
on the back of the charger with the exposed screws and fully
engage them in the slots.

DeWALT batteries comply with all applicable shipping
regulations as prescribed by industry and legal standards
which include UN Recommendations on the Transport of
Dangerous Goods; International Air Transport Association
(IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations, International Maritime
Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Regulations, and the European
Agreement Concerning The International Carriage of
Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). Lithium-ion cells and
batteries have been tested to section 38.3 of the UN
Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods
Manual of Tests and Criteria.
In most instances, shipping a DeWALT battery pack will be
excepted from being classified as a fully regulated Class 9
Hazardous Material. In general, only shipments containing
a lithium-ion battery with an energy rating greater than
100 Watt Hours (Wh) will require being shipped as fully
regulated Class 9. All lithium-ion batteries have the Watt
Hour rating marked on the pack. Furthermore, due to
regulation complexities, DeWALT does not recommend air
shipping lithium-ion battery packs alone regardless of Watt
Hour rating. Shipments of tools with batteries (combo kits)
can be air shipped as excepted if the Watt Hour rating of the
battery pack is no greater than 100 Whr.
Regardless of whether a shipment is considered excepted
or fully regulated, it is the shipper's responsibility to consult
the latest regulations for packaging, labeling/marking and
documentation requirements.
The information provided in this section of the manual is
provided in good faith and believed to be accurate at the
time the document was created. However, no warranty,
expressed or implied, is given. It is the buyer’s responsibility
to ensure that its activities comply with the applicable
Transporting the FLEXVOLTTM Battery
The DeWALT FLEXVOLTTM battery has two modes: Use and
Use Mode: When the FLEXVOLTTM battery stands alone or is
in a DeWALT 18V product, it will operate as an 18V battery.
When the FLEXVOLTTM battery is in a 54V or a 108V (two 54V
batteries) product, it will operate as a 54V battery.
Transport Mode: When the cap is attached to the
FLEXVOLTTM battery, the battery is in Transport mode. Keep
the cap for shipping.
When in Transport mode,
strings of cells are electrically
disconnected within the
pack resulting in 3 batteries
with a lower Watt hour (Wh) rating as compared to 1 battery
with a higher Watt hour rating. This increased quantity of 3
batteries with the lower Watt hour rating can exempt the
pack from certain shipping regulations that are imposed
upon the higher Watt hour batteries.
For example, the
Example of Use and Transport Label Marking
Transport Wh rating
might indicate 3 x 36
Wh, meaning 3
batteries of 36 Wh each.
The Use Wh rating might indicate 108 Wh (1 battery implied).
Storage Recommendations
1. The best storage place is one that is cool and dry
away from direct sunlight and excess heat or cold. For
optimum battery performance and life, store battery
