The DC012 looks like an ordinary jobsite radio, but it is the only heavy-duty jobsite radio/charger that will charge NiCad and lithium-ion battery packs—even while the radio is playing. A roll cage protects the unit from damage, and the 4-inch speakers are weather resistant. It has three AC outlets and, of course, an iPod dock. Cost: $170. DeWalt. 800-433-9258. www.dewalt.com.
