Adapted batteries to different tool brands

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any luck with adapting different batteries with different tool bodies? I have all ridgid tools and batteries but a family member recently got a lot of Milwaukee tools and it would be nice to be able to used each others tools. Also ryobi has a lot of different bare tools that are cheap that would be nice to be able to use with my ridgid batteries. I have seen that you can get adapters for different brands of tools just didn’t know if it would mess up the tool or battery

If you going Ridgid battery into Ryobi tool then you might be able to get it to work but Ridgid battery into Milwaukee tool may not work right if it works at all. Most pro level brands not including prosumer/semipro have chips and whatnot that work with the tool and battery to ensure everything works right. The lower end stuff might or might not have chips but if they do, they are much easier to work around. Personally if the battery is not the battery that the manufacturer of the tool sells then I wouldn't use it. Unless it is a company that specifically uses another name brand battery for example Greenlee uses makita batteries and Graco and Mac use DeWALT batteries.
