For construction workers needing a lift, electric tools maker Makita Corp. has released a new coffee maker that is rechargeable and works in the field.

The coffee maker is powered by the same lithium-ion batteries as the cordless screwdrivers and drills produced by Makita.

The company, based in Anjo, Aichi Prefecture, expects that the coffeepot will be in demand at outdoor construction sites where electrical outlets are in short supply.

Makita's first coffee maker went on sale in 2015. It gained in popularity because the same types of batteries as its power tools also work in the coffee machine.

The new model can make a maximum of 5.3 cups of coffee on one charge, from a dedicated coffee pack as well as instant coffee. It weighs 1.5 kilograms.

The new coffee maker is sold at home center and other locations, costing 11,900 yen ($111.40) excluding tax. The battery charger and battery are sold separately.
