Questions & Answers

Can you use the 18v charger with this adapter for a 20v battery?

Asked by: mvande21
No. Will not fit in 18v charger.

What tools will this be compatible with?

I've got 18V drill/driver, circular saw, and reciprocating saw that I'd like to know if I should buy this or replace with 20V versions.
Asked by: TallJake
I purchased item online and received it today and it is NOT compatible with my DeWalt DC908 flashlight. At the top of thethree battery adapter there are three small studs (one on one side & two on the other side) that prevent this battery from being inserted into this DeWalt tools. The recess on my DC908 flashlight has no slots for these studs. This may be a way to determine if this adapter will work your specific DeWalt tool.

Customer Reviews

20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Battery Adapter for 18-Volt Tools is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 202.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Another Dewalt dud I've had this kit for about a week. Charged both batteries before using" and each tool ran ok the first (short) time I ran them. The next day, one tool was totally dead and the other ran a very short time. After reading a review, I see that leaving the battery in the adapter drains it. This makes the kit useless in my opinion. The last regular 18v batteries I bought had a short life. So this makes two purchases in a row that lead to disappointment. As another reviewer mentioned, they also don't fit the tools well. Darn near impossible to remove. I don't suspect Dewalt will do anything about this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs warning to not store battery in adapter I bought this to enable me to continue using some of the older tools without buying more of the older style batteries. For that, it works great. However, it does not have any warning the connecting the battery to the adapter will drain the battery when not used. This is a surprise. Now I always remove the battery when finished using the adapter. I think this is a surprise and a negative for this product since leaving the battery attached to the tools does not drain the batteries.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It drains the lithium batteries if it sits. I had to use this adapter at work when all I had available were 20v lithiums. It worked great unless it sat unused for 2 or 3 days. The lithium batteries had led indicators and 3 bars meant full. The leds would be down to 1 and then die out shortly. I have the 20v brushless which uses the same 20v batteries and they will stay charged for 10+ days with daily use

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THE ADDAPTER IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO REMOVE FROM THE DEWALT... THE ADDAPTER IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO REMOVE FROM THE DEWALT TOOL IT IS BEING USED ON TO ANOTHER TOOL. THE BUTTONS TO MAKE IT RELEASE ARE POORLY PLACED AND HARD TO GET TOO. WHEN I TOOK IT BACK TO THE STORE THEY HAD THE SAME PROBLEM TRYING TO REMOVE IT. SAME PROBLEM WITH THE REPLACEMENT.

An excellent idea being able to use the new 20v batteries in the older 18 volt tool and it works very well however, the release latches are almost impossible to get released. This is between the adapter and the tool. Other than that, perfect.
