Product Information

DeWalt MD501


That's the best way of describing the DeWalt MD501 smartphone. Yes, those people who make power tools have made a smartphone. Their offering is certainly more at home on the workbench or on a building site.

Designed to always be there and ready for action, DeWalt have made this phone one of the sturdiest around. From survivng high falls to being submerged in water, this phone is extremely tough.

Perfect for the building site or any other rugged environment, you don't have to constantly worry about breaking your phone on site anymore.


The MD501 will really stand up to the test and match the high standards you'd expect from DeWalt.

Built for use outdoors and in extreme conditions, this phone won't let any water or dust in thanks to its IP68 rating. It will even survive for 30 minutes at a depth of 2m if dropped into water.

MIL-STD 810G testing means your phone is fully rugged with a tested design that will withstand everything from falls from 2m onto concrete to chemical spillages and vibrations.

Gorilla Toughened Glass gives you peace of mind that your screen will stay scratch, crack and shatter free even when dropped.

When it comes to extremely hot or cold conditions, they've got that covered too. Your phone will work at temperatures as high as 60°C or as low as -20°C and, if you're wondering how you'll manage to use it in such cold temperatures, you can still use the touchscreen while wearing gloves.

It's not just this phone's build that makes it perfect for use outdoors. With an amplified loudspeaker, you won't miss those calls.


Lack of signal, poor quality coverage and running out of data are all a thing of the past thanks to the dual SIM technology in the MD501.

Run two contracts at the same time so you know you'll have better coverage, for more time. Use one for calls and texts and the other for data so you don't risk running out of either. If you're in an area with poor network coverage, callers could reach you using your second number so you are less likely to miss out on important news or jobs.

4G coverage makes sure you'll have the quickest download speeds when it comes to checking plans and documents while in the field and, if you are somewhere without a 4G signal, Wi-Fi gives you the chance to stay connected in more remote locations.

Sharing is easy too with Bluetooth built in.


With an Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system - the MD501 packs a punch. It's not all about being on site either, you can combine leisure and work all in the same device.

2 GB RAM makes completing tasks lightning fast and the 16GB of memory gives you plenty of room to save important files, documents and photos. With a MicroSD card slot you'll never run out of space either, as you can expand up to 64GB.

Charging is simple too. Thanks to QI wireless charging, you can simply put your phone down on the QI standard pad and start charging. You can still charge using a cable, for added convenience.


The 13MP rear camera lets you take high quality photos on and off site for both work and pleasure while the 5MP front facing camera means you can check in at work, even when you're not there.

There is an integrated radio and MP3 player to help to keep you entertained while you're busy at work and, with the thousands of apps available through Google Play, there's countless opportunities to make the phone yours.
