DeWalt has announced its newest cordless technology, FLEXVOLT, which brings corded power to a cordless system.

The FLEXVOLT battery switches voltage to match the tool, so it’s compatible with DeWalt’s existing 20V MAX platform as well as the new 60V MAX and 120V MAX cordless lineup that includes a cordless table saw and cordless 12″ sliding mitre saw. The new mitre saw uses two FLEXVOLT 60V MAX batteries to deliver 120 Volts and the cutting performance of a corded saw.
