There’s FINALLY A Rugged Coffee Maker That Runs On Batteries From Power Tools
How many times have you been to the construction site and there’s no electricity hooked up there yet? That means there’s no method to power your coffee maker at the job site. Well, that conundrum has been solved thanks to a brand new coffee maker that runs on the batteries of power tools. Japanese power tools manufacturer Makita has created a rugged coffee maker that uses the same exact lithium-ion battery as the company’s cordless power tools.
Now you can brew coffee while making your own kegerator or building a table out of pallets or whenever you want as long as your batteries are charged. The Makita CM501D can make 5.3 cups of coffee on one charge with the company’s largest 18V battery pack. The go-anywhere coffee maker uses Makita’s coffee pods or you can also use it to brew instant coffee. Currently, the Makita coffee maker is only available in Japan for 11,900 yen or roughly $112. For that price, you get the coffee maker, but the battery charger and battery are sold separately. But the ability to get a hot cup of coffee wherever you are, even when off the grid, is priceless.
