Porter-Cable 18 Volt Battery Status Indicator
The 18 Volt Battery Status Indicator allows contractors to test battery charge status quickly and easily, preventing professionals from taking an uncharged battery to a jobsite. The unit includes an easy-to-read LED display with a fully automatic state of charge indication. An automatic shut-off feature shuts the unit down after 15 seconds without use to limit unnecessary battery drain. The PCC580B answers the professional’s question of wanting to know how much battery charge is left when starting or finishing a job.
The battery status indicator is compatible with all PORTER-CABLE 18 Volt Lithium Ion and NiCd batteries. Both are sold as bare tools, meaning that the batteries and chargers are sold separately.
Available in November 2011 through Lowe’s, Amazon.com and the independent channel, the PCC580B is expected to retail for approximately $9.97.
Comes with a three-year limited warranty, one-year service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
