Default DeWalt batteries

I have four tools that use the 18V battery. I was actually happy to see the higher voltage tools introduced. I thought the old 18v battery would get cheaper. Not. For the same price of a new battery, I can get a drill, charger, case, and battery. Why?

About the same with cell phone batteries. I got a new phone for $10.00 more than the new battery for a 4 year old phone.

I would take the battery's for cordless tools and have them rebuilt of buy the stuff and rebuild them your self.

My brother has a boat load of 18V "stuff"... Then the lith-ion 20V came out and it's pretty nice, he bought a few of those tools.

Anyway, he likes those 20V lith-ion batts so much, he made an adapter to use the new 20V batts in all of his 18V tools! IT works perfectly!

If you didn't already know, the 20V batts/tools run on 18V, so it a no brainer to run those batts on the 18V tools!

BTW, I think NOW, Dewalt makes/sells just an adapter to do this...

Lastly, "I" LOVE my Dewalt 20V tools too!

The DeWalt 20V Li-O drill batteries are an exact match for the Black & Decker batteries except for one little thing, The connectors are larger on the B & D than the DeWalt. I wonder if this done so people can't replace their DeWalt batteries with the cheaper B &Ds when they need a new battery.
