Are any power tool batteries interchangeable?
People also ask, which power tool batteries are interchangeable?
The different sizing of the cordless battery slot itself causes each brand to have its own battery pack size even though they tend to have the same voltage. The Porter-Cable and Dewalt for example which both have 20 volts lithium-ion cells are not interchangeable without some modifications.
Also question is, do Dewalt batteries fit other tools?
Yes. While most DeWalt batteries fit on all tools they are marked as compatible with, there are a few that don't. Due to their size, FlexVolt packs don't fit all smaller tools and adaptors. A few newer compact 20v MAX packs are slightly longer than others, and so also don't fit all tools or chargers.
The new WORX® PowerShare system enables nine 20-volt MaxLithium cordless yard and shop tools to be powered by the same interchangeable battery, creating both cost savings and convenience. With the purchase of a second battery, the user always has fully charged backup available.
