Are any power tool batteries interchangeable?

Last Updated: 17th May, 2020

So, in this case they are interchangeable. As you can see, for the most part, the batteries are simply going to have to stay with the product that you have bought. We always recommend trying to purchase a kit that comes with more than one rechargeable battery.

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.

Additionally, what 20v batteries are interchangeable? Answer: Yes, all of our 20V BLACK+DECKER batteries and chargers are interchangeable within our 20V BLACK+DECKER product line.

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.

Are Worx batteries interchangeable?

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.

Which is better Dewalt or Makita?

From experience, DeWalt's 20-volt drill has a bit more torque than the Makita, although the difference is rather negligible. The DeWalt is also a fair bit heavier/bulkier - with its 3-speed transmission and big 20-volt battery - than the leaner/slimmer 2-speed Makita.

Are drill batteries universal?

That being said, the drill batteries are interchangeable within that certain manufacturer. We have seen plenty of people put a 12V battery in a 14.4 Volt drill, both of which are manufactured by Dewalt. This happens often, depending on what you have on hand, and usually it will work.

Can I use a 40v battery in a 20v tool?

can you use a 40v battery on 20v tools? No, not without intervening circuitry to step down the voltage to 20 volts. You can generally use a higher capacity battery (that is one with more amp hours and thus run time) but the battery itself has to be 20 volts. Higher voltages will destroy the tool.

Are Dewalt and Craftsman batteries interchangeable?

20V Lithium Ion tools use the same batteries, regardless of brand? Porter Cable, DeWalt, Craftsman, Black & Decker, & Mac Tools all seem to use the same 20v lithium ion battery system system, as if made by the same parent company.

Can you use a 60v Dewalt battery on a 20v tool?

Yes, the 20/60v battery works on 20v Dewalt tools, but also adds more weight t… see more. 2 20v 5.0ah batteries get you a total of 10ah of power when compared to 6ah from the 20/60v battery. Only reason to by the 20/60v battery is if you are buying the 60v and 120v Dewalt tools and tool accessories.

Are craftsman and Porter Cable Batteries interchangeable?

Craftsman Bolt On and B&D Matrix are fully interchangeable, batteries and tool heads. Same tools with different branding. IIRC from a post a while ago, porter cable 12v and black and decker 12v are compatible if you remove a small tab from the porter cable battery. It's how they keep you in brand.

Are Black and Decker 20v batteries interchangeable with Dewalt?

Sometimes electronics from the same manufacturer will also not work with 20V batteries because voltage requirement is not matching. Standard DeWalt batteries with 20V power will go well with all twenty-volt-tools. Same goes for chargers.

What does DeWalt XR mean?

XR on the tool refers to the motors being brushless which are more efficient and that equals better battery life. The XR line of batteries according to DeWalt last 33% longer than the 20v "max" line of batteries of the same size.

What is the difference between DeWalt 20v batteries?

The difference between the the is that the XR is more powerfull than the regular 20V. The batteies are are made to fit both the 20V max and the 20 XR. The only difference in batteries is the amount of Amps. The 3.0 Amps just lasts longer, but for the rest they can be both used for the Dewalt.
