The 120v FlexVolt 12-inch Sliding Miter Saw runs on two 60v FlexVolt batteris plugged in side by side behind the motor housing.

Big news from DeWalt’s media day, which introduced a new battery system called FlexVolt. From what I saw it’s pretty clear that it’s going to change the game for cordless tools.
