Answer: 
Any Dewalt XRP 18 volt battery will work. Black, yellow, or black / yellow, either NiCad or Lithium XRP. The only thing you have to do is have the matching charger for the batteries. Lithium for lithium batteries, etc. The lithium chargers are all yellow, and are not interchangeable with the Nicads. However, the tool accepts both just fine. It will run faster and longer on the Lithiums. This is the case Read More

Answer: 
Hi Mike, according to the product overview web page, the model of battery and charger you ask about will not work.
Take a look at the web product page, where it says product overview at the bottom. You will see the batteries and chargers that will work with the saw.

Hi Bill, yes the batteries from your model DC970K-2-4 will work with this saw.
Both the saw and drill can use batteries DC9096 & DC9180. Hope that answered your question.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 70 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Tool. Poor Battery Performance. I bought this to do work around my yard with cutting small branches, etc. the 9099 and 9098 batteries will cut up to 7 2" branches before being exhausted. Bummer. I have been happy with all of DeWalt's coreded products and cordless drills. However getting reasonable battery power out of this will cost you another $250-$300 for 2 5.0 amp batteries and a charger. Their 1.5 and 2.4 amp batteries simply aren't up to the challenge. Clearly, the battery technology is not up to the task yet. More importantly, the batteries are clearly the profitable items for DeWalt, which makes yhis a $400.00 price of entry tool. Simply too much for this level of performance. This tool as it stands is not a professional level tool yet. August 2, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Box is wrong I just purchased the saw and the box says dc385b ,with xrp on the corner, got home to find that no where is it stamped xrp on the saw like all my other xrp tools meaning it's not as heavy duty as the box falsely suggests. Lesson learned, open the box in the store July 31, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Questionable assistance When you make a purchase you shouldn't have to read the microprint to make sure you don't need 3 other items in order for the product to work. I bought a sawsal for a bd gift. Thank goodness I read the micro print. It didn't come with batteries or charge unit. When it was opened we found out it also doesn't come with blades. Jeez July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A perfect addition to my truck The saw is a great compliment to my already Dewalt tools. Interchangeable batteries made this a natural selection and completes my needed equipment for the jobs. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by i8 volt addition to my cordless tools Tool worked fine as should, I have used it several times with no problems July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Works as expected and no issues 18v drill battery works June 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Useful Battery Powered Saw I bought the saw with no batteries or charger hoping to use the battery from one of my drills in the saw. The team at HD said I could use any 18V battery. Not quite right. It needed a LIthium battery to fit properly in the saw. Luckily I have all kinds of Dewalt drills and batteries. Overall the saw works well. The battery has good life for light uses. I would go with a wired saw for heavy continous cutting needs but for a few cuts in the field this is very good. It also fits nicely in an orange Homer tool box if you take the battery off. January 19, 2016
