Milwaukee to makita battery

Check ebay. There's an Australian seller that uses a 3D printer to make these. Last time I looked he had one for Makita batteries on Bosch tools and a few other combinations I can't remember.

That's true when you look at the marketing, but the majority of the tools seem to control the battery connected so there is no need for special circuitry in the adapter. I've drained my Dewalt batteries and milwaukee batteries completely using the adapters and never had issues. I think he had adapters from each brand to another and vice versa for milwaukee, dewalt, makita, ryobi and AEG and no issues arose.

@method so batteries with the circuitry will be compatible then? I recently saw some one had a DeWALT and Hercules drill (Harbor Freight DeWALT clone). When both tools were modified to work in the other tool neither tool worked apart from the lights. I'm guessing the Hercules didn't have the electronics.

I'm guessing so, not sure what Hercules is? But my fuel tools work with dewalt batteries and there is no issue. I've wanted to test with Metabo but no one makes adapters for their batteries and I don't have time to make one either. I guess you could just run leads from the terminals of the battery to the tool to test and check that way but I've never tried it.
