Is this adapter/battery/charger kit compatible with DeWalt DC988 cordless drill? my drill was manufactured in 2005. I have been told yes, and I have been told no. Which is correct?
Asked by: Sanders
This adapter will work just fine with the 18v drill you are referring to. The kit was made for that very purpose, as so many people have the older 18v tools. Although it says 20v that is somewhat overstating. It will indeed work with your, and any other, 18v dewalt tool. You may want to get the bigger ah batteries down the road, as these will probably not last as long as the XR 18v batteries. However, with these new batteries there are so many to choose from. A 3ah or 4ah will probably give you a similar use rate as the older XR batteries, but weigh a little less, and have no memory. Need to drill 1 more hole but the drill dies, no need to recharge completely, taking an hour or so. Instead through it on the charger for 5-10 min and then finish your job. No damage done!!

Customer Reviews

18-Volt to 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Battery Adapter Kit (2-Pack) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1855.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better be tough. I purchased this just a little over a year ago and love the concept but to switch the adapter part from tool to tool is so difficult that if I don't have large channel locks to push the release tabs I can't get the part out to switch to another tool. An unfortunately one of the battery's is failing already. I quit buying dewalt years ago because of their batterys never held a charge well and before long they wouldn't take any charge so I switched brands . My son just purchased a lot of there battery operated tools and I saw assembled in usa sticker on one of the tools and I like that and even if not all there tools aren't made here or assembled here at least it's more then any of the other brands can say. I was going to switch to dewalt line but I am concerned about the reliablety of there batterys. But I am impressed buy Dwelt of at least supporting our country where and when they can and that means a lot to me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I purchased this Adapter kit as a Christmas present for myself back in November of 2017. It was needed to take care of several issues I have with my work as a handyman. I bought a new 20V Max DeWalt drill and Driver combo two years ago. I always wanted to get additional batteries and another charger for those. I also wanted to be able to use an older DeWalt 18V drill in my shop, but needed replacement batteries for it. This kit took care of all of these issues. Now I can have one drill in my vehicle, one in my shop, and a charger in both locations. When I saw the kit in the store, My one question was whether the battery and adapter had enough weight and surface area to keep the old drill stable when placed upright on the bench. To date I have not had a problem with it falling over, even with a longer pocket hole bit in the chuck. It is a real effort to pull the adapter off the drill, but I don't really need to remove it anyway. To date, this kit has met my expectations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shamefully bad... I’m considering switching brands over this piece of trash. The charger works ... Shamefully bad... I’m considering switching brands over this piece of trash. The charger works fine. The adapter is kind of hard to get in and out the tool but not total junk. The real problem here is the batteries. From day one they never really lasted very long and never charged all the way up to three bars. They rapidly deteriorated from there. By about a year later I was able to drive one or two screws per battery, or make about one cut with a circular saw if I was lucky. Luckily for me I actually had a few 18v batteries that were still waaaaay better than these (at about 10 years old). Now those are finally about done for too. So, the question is do I buy more DeWalt stuff? or buy a new set of 20v tools that isn’t made by Black and Decker company? Maybe buy the other tools since DeWalt no longer cares if it sells junk. I still go into my local hardware stores and see this shamefully bad product on the shelves and think of all the customers who being rolled. It makes me angry.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not recommended I bought this about 8 months ago to replace some 18v batteries I have that wouldnt take a charge anymore. I like dewalt tools and I have many, and this one seemed like a great idea at the time, but a few issues I find is one. I can't wrap my fingers around the battery and the adapter to release it from the tool, so I have to first remove the battery from the adapter, then remove the adapter from the tool. Not real convenient when your in a hurry when you have multiple tools and only one adapter.Also, when I leave the adapter and the battery on a tool, it drains the battery within a day or two. I've tried this on several tools and they all drain it so I don't believe its a tool issue. Also, the battery doesn't last nearly as long when using it as my 18v batteries did when they were newer. In the end, I don't recommend this product and I should have bought replacment 18v batteries instead of buying this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great, but with limits. At first look this is a great option. I have 5 different tools which this works with and yes the adaptor is difficult to get out and if you leave the battery inside when not in use it will discharge. But these are simple issues to deal with, just take the battery out when not in use and buy an additional one so you don't have to switch them out as much. I have two of them for 5 tools. However, the adaptor limits the power going through it and shuts the tool down for a couple of seconds and then comes back. This gets quite irritating when you trying to use the tool under high torque conditions. My screw gun, sawsall and hammerdrill all exibit this behavior. My screw gun(DC668) and Circular Saw(DW936) my favorite tools to use really bring this out. When the tool starts to really draw power under heavier torque conditions they constanly cut out. If you put one of the stock 18v XR batteries back in it, the tools work without flaw. Its not the 20 max batteries either because it does this on all 4 of them. This adaptor should have performed equal to or better than the 18v nicad batteries, but the performance drop is just simply not worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extended the life of my old 18v XRP tools I bought this as my two 18v NiHm batteries are starting to tire out with maybe half of their original run time. This seemed the logical step as I have added a couple of new 20v Max series tools to the good old 7pc. 18V XRP set (All still working after 8+ yrs btw). I will concede the point that the adapter is a little challenging to remove. My solution to that was to use an older 18v along with the Li Ion adapter when I intended to use two tools at the same time. I have not experienced the power drain issue reported by others as I always remove the battery from the tool before putting it away. I have however left a battery in the adapter for at least a week and it still had three bars when I went to use it. In regards to the shorter life of these batteries......they are smaller!. The kit comes with two 2.0Ah batteries. The older 18V XRP batteries are 3.0Ah, 50% larger, so they would have longer run time assuming the batteries are still performing at optimum. With that said, my newer Lithium batteries have a comparable run time as my older Ni 18 volt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is nice to have an option to convert over to 20-volt without having to replace a suite of tool... It is nice to have an option to convert over to 20-volt without having to replace a suite of tools. The battery life indicator on the front of each battery is a great feature. I am displeased with how difficult it is to remove the adapter from each tool. I swap batteries around frequently and this adapter does not dislodge from the housing easily. I have to release one side at a time and have always had to use 2 hands to depress each black tab. But, it is a small price to pay so I don't have to replace a bunch of tools all at once and as I expand my inventory it will be handy to have additional 20v batteries. 3.7 out of 5

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight and cut-line on the left makes it easier to follow your line without being unwieldy.... Light weight and cut-line on the left makes it easier to follow your line without being unwieldy. Would be nice to have higher amp batteries but would also make the saw heavier. For the price, batteries, charger and adapter, this was a saw I've been following and waiting for a good price - $129 is about the cost of just the batteries alone. What I would like to see in an included saw guide - in searching for a saw guide for this saw has revealed some direct-fit problems, even listing a Black & Decker saw guide as the one to buy. Battery size and saw glide are the only factors in knocking this saw down a star.
