Can I use an 18V battery in a 20V drill?

There is no reason the 18V tool can’t run on 20V without an intermediary circuit. As long as the Lithium batteries are charged on a DeWalt lithium charger you are safe and the tools will run fine on 19 volts – the actual no-load voltage of a charged DeWalt lithium battery.

Are DeWalt 18V and 20V the same?

In the most simplistic terms, Dewalt 20V Max = 18V. These aren’t 20V battery packs, they’re 18V battery packs. If you didn’t already know this, don’t worry, it’s not just you.

Do I need a 20V drill?

If you’re doing projects regularly, or plan on doing something more robust, you’ll want to get a 18- or 20-volt drill. A drill with a brushless motor is usually quieter and its battery is longer-lasting than one with a brushed motor.

Which is more powerful 12v or 20V?

Power. The main difference between 12v, 18v, and 20v tools is their power; the higher the voltage of the tool means the more influential the tool is, so here the voltage is 12, 18, and 20 volts, indicating the 12v tool has less power compared to the 18 and 20-volt tools.

Can I use 18V battery in 20V Black and Decker?

Yes, all of our 20V BLACK+DECKER batteries and chargers are interchangeable within our 20V BLACK+DECKER product line. Question: Can this battery replace my 18V B&D nicad batteries?

Do 18V DeWalt batteries work in 20V?

The DEWALT DCA1820 20V MAX Battery Adapter for 18V Tools is compatible with most DEWALT 18V tools and allows for use of 20V MAX compact batteries in most DEWALT 18V tools. This adapter requires use of DEWALT 20V MAX charger, as this adapter will not fit into DEWALT 18V chargers. Battery and charger are sold separately.

When did DeWalt change 20V?

2011. DEWALT expands its lithium ion tools offering with the introduction of the new 20V MAX* System.

Are higher voltage batteries better?

A higher voltage battery has the potential to “push” more current–that is, more electrons–for a given resistance. This translates to the capacity for greater work, which is the same thing as more power. Higher voltage also means less current to do the same amount of work, so longer battery life.

What’s the difference between 18V and 20V?

Each battery cell has a nominal voltage of 3.6 volts and a maximum voltage of just over 4 volts. That’s it. That’s the entire difference in 18V vs 20V Max batteries. It’s only a matter of whether the company is using nominal voltage or maximum voltage as its rating.

Which is better 12V or 18V drill?

It’s obvious that 18-volt tools have more power than their 12-volt brethren. However, 12V vs 18V isn’t just about power. You simply may not need all that torque. Then an 18-volt platform might be better suited for the job.

Can you use a 36V battery in an 18v tool?

Although both the 18V and 36V have the same slide on design, the 36V’s are larger – longer to be more accurate. The chargers and tools are optimised for each battery voltage too so you can’t use a 36v battery say, in an 18v tool or charger.

Which is the best impact driver for 18V?
