  1. Hello! I am looking into buying the DCS573NT-XJ. But I'm not sure if it's necessary for me as a home user, to get the flexvolt battery. I currently have some 18v 5ah batteries for my DeWalt impact wrench, so would I be able to use those? Is the 77% power gain really noticeable and will it make a big difference for me, who isn't a proffesional. Thanks in advance!
  2. I have a few Ryobi tools but also a makitta drill and a dewalt impact driver. Can anyone recomend a battery adaptor (for either one?) so I don't have to invest in more Ryobi batteries?
  3. One of the terminals on my M18 RedLithium High Output XC8.0 battery melted after about a month of use. I use it on a M18 FUEL grass trimmer I bought about six weeks ago from Home Depot (the battery came with the trimmer). (I love it by the way!) A few days later, the terminal on another 12ah battery also melted on the same terminal when used with the grass trimmer. The overheat protection hasn't kicked in. I just noticed the melted terminal because it's hard to remove the battery now. There's also a grey powder that has collected on the battery around where it slides into the tool. Ideas?
  4. Hey, I’m interested to buy the Dewalt DCB203 battery for my purpose, but I couldn’t find any design guide or drawings for the same. As a designer, I need these dimensions, atleast the CAD model of the battery so that I could design my robot, and the mount for this battery accordingly. I have tried searching everywhere, yet I couldn’t find any sort of drawings, or schematic for the battery. This is the link for the battery from official dewalt website: https://www.dewalt.com/products/accessories/batteries-and-chargers/batteries/20v-max-compact-lithium-ion-battery-pack/dcb203 please help me with the same. If anyone could find the drawings, or cad model from a trusted source, please let me know. thanks in advance.

    Makita battery info

    Does anyone know what kind of cells do Makita batteries use? I noticed the 4ah battery has the text 5INR19/65-2 text printed on it and the 5ah has 5INR19/66-2. What does that mean? And some say "Made in vietnam", others "Cell made in Singapore. Pack processed in China". What does pack processing mean? Is China bad? And can we find out how many cycles did a battery complete, like on milwaukee?
  7. Is the voltage a good indicator of battery life? I tested one fully charged 3Ah battery and it showed 19.5V. Another fully charged 5Ah battery showed 19.9V. I don't have a new one to test but I think the "normal" voltage should stay at 4.2 * 5 = 21V. Right?
  8. Hey guys. New to the forum and hopefully you can give me some advice. The 18v batteries for my dc618 (UK) nailer are slowly dying. The problem is for the life of me I can't get compatible batteries to work on it. I've even tried the DeWalt adapter to use the new slide battery on it, which I borrowed from a work colleague, but still nothing. On both compatibles and adapter the nailer gives one pulse of power then the LEDs flash to indicate a flat battery then nothing. I can get genuine ones from my local stockist and online but they are still around the £70 mark. A lot of dough for old tech. In the end I may just have to suck it up and buy but thought someone out there may have a better idea. It seems that it's the only DeWalt tool that will only work on genuine batteries. Thanks guys
  9. hello all, yes i resgistered here in search of chainsaw chat, especially for the Milwaukee new M18 im considering purchasing it but have a challenge in doing so as a tourist in NYC in August. 1. the shipped battery at 216 wH is too high energy to be taken back either as permissable cabin or luggage hold air transport - it has to be Dangerous goods certified shipping: a BIG cost+hassle 2. I cannot seem to purchase the saw in USA without the M18 battery - itself selling at 199USD as a standalone item 3. I cannot advertise to sell a brand new M18 battery here (as i am a newbie) 4. yes, the item is available in europe at a price differential of +250USD to USA price. 5. maybe i can find a USA tool retailer willing to sell me it without the battery or take it back? - any ideas in the NYC area? 6. maybe i should just forget it.... and get a Makita 18v chainsaw in Europe instead. have a splendid day.
  10. Hi everyone, I've been entertaining the idea of making a wall to battery adapter for cordless tools for a while now. The idea is that an adapter can plug into the tool and then connect to the wall outlet to replace a dead battery (until the battery is recharged). I finally got around to it and have built a few of these for Ryobi and Dewalt tool systems. Right now, all the electronics are in a hollowed out battery case, so the adapter can fit normally into a drill/jigsaw/circular saw etc (no external power brick). They work really well, they seem to have the same power as normal battery operation (maybe a little more?). This got me thinking, that I could start selling these (~$40-$50) if there is interest out there, so any feedback would be appreciated. Feel free to ask questions. Thanks, Aaron
  11. Makita has an interesting battery adapter with a DC plug output. Model number is PE00000028 and it appears to be used by the Makita heated jacket. I was thinking I could use it to power some small electronics, like a soldering iron that accepts a 5.5 mm DC plug and up to 24V. But I can't find anywhere the specs for it. Like what's the output voltage through that plug, and max amp draw, and maybe the type of plug. Does anyone here have the heated jacket with this adapter? Maybe they are printed on it on the other side? Another idea I had is to get this cheap USB adapter: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2A-Blue-Battery-Dual-USB-Charger-Adapter-Tools-for-Makita-BL1830-1430-Adapter/282546633419 Then extract it contents and attach to it my own wires and plug. What do you think?
  12. Hello all. I have been a long time dewalt user but have seen a few tools from Ryobi that I wanted to add to my arsenal. Not wanting to buy a bunch of new batteries I set out to build an adapter to use Dewalt 20v Batteries on Ryobi tools, WHILE preserving the protection for dewalt batteries from over discharge. Here's my solution:
  13. Considering that the cells in these batteries allow 20A discharge each, is it safe to use them to jump start a car when needed? I saw a video on youtube where a guy that said he jump-started a truck with a Makita battery! I was thinking to make one out of a Makita USB adapter case. Basically drill 2 holes in it and attach 2 clips to the connectors.
  14. so i was with a buddy of mine and we had to improvise, lol and YES it worked!!! is this a TIA first ?
  15. Does anyone know if Makita lithium ion 18V batteries are balanced by the Makita charger?
  16. hahahha. I saw this & it was actually very informative and supper funny haha. Milwaukee 9.0 teardown/test. Watch and let me know what you think.
  17. Does anyone know the differences (if any) between these two batteries? I can't find any information online and the pricing seems inconsistent. Is one an older model? Some pictures I found online showed the red extreme battery is assembled in China, whereas the other black version is Hungary. Thanks
  18. Am I the only one that has noticed this? This is the second time I have seen a post about bigger M18 batteries. I thought my 5.0 batteries that came with my fuel set were huge -- Link: http://bit.ly/1OgbLJz
  19. I have the M18 Fuel combo kit which comes with 2 big 5.0 batteries. I want a small one for use with just the flashlight.

  21. Hello all, I recently bought a new Bosch drill that comes with an 18V 3,0Ah Li-Ion Battery, which is all well and good, but there is a meter on the back of it with an On button that seems to do nothing at all. I've attached a picture of the meter. Can anyone tell me how to get this to work? There is no mention in the manual or anywhere online (that I could find at any rate). Thanks a million for your help. Michael.
  22. Pros: Fast charge, long battery lifeIncludes extra batteryLifetime battery replacement programDecent torque - haven't had a problem with any screws or drill jobs yetIncludes bagSize & weight are convenient Cons: Hex chuck - only works with hex bits. Rockwell includes 3 special hex drill bits to compensate.You can buy a $20 chuck attachment if you insist on only using this drill.You'll definitely need a normal drill as well - I use this one for quick jobs and driving only It appears very expensive on Amazon - $116 on 6/25/15: http://amzn.com/B004U4BAI8 I bought mine for less than $50 at Costco about a year ago, and I'm happy with it for that price, but probably wouldn't be for $116.
  23. I purchased a Ryobi HP41L with a 4V Battery a while back. Its the one with an internal battery, not the screw on disc-shaped batteries. It seems that the Battery has given up and wont charge at all anymore. The problem is that I cant seem to find a replacement anywhere! Even the Ryobi company cant help me out. I called and searched everywhere online and cant figure it out. The Battery is a IMR18650, however all the ones I could find online lack two receptacles/prongs that attach themselves to the drills circut board. Anyone know where I can find a replacement? Edit: I found this online, Its a link to the exact stock battery from the drill, but it says I have to purchase at least 100. You can see in the picture what I mean by the prongs. Any help? Thanks! http://www.sourcingelectricals.com/18650-IMR18650BB-Cylindrical-Lithium-Rechargeable-Battery-10106366/
  24. I've heard a lot of good things about cordless impact drivers and have taken the time to find out quite a bit about how they work. I understand that there is a hammer and anvil mechanism inside which creates additional torque by hammering on the side of the bit. A lot of people online are saying that the great thing about the cordless impact driver is that they do not use any additional battery power to produce these high impacts. How can this be true? Where is the power coming from if not the battery? Cheers, R
