18v Tools that won't accept the adapter:

 

  • Nailers
  • Radios 
  • Chargers
  • DC020 & DC022 Lights
  • Generators
  • Vac & Lasers (will work but the doors won't close)
  • Earlier model 18v band saws (don't have a date code yet)

 

 

Heh, so basically all the tools they really want you to buy in 20v. lol.

I just saw the Tia video on this. I'd get it if I had the 18v tools but....I don't. I think it's totally worth it though. Awesome innovation from what was arguably a big mistake from Dewalt. Those guys are picking up and helping their customers out with this one!

Do you guys know what the XRP was running for Ah on their old Nicad?

I think I've seen that, maybe the tool can only handle a single row of lithium batteries, I would imagine has something to do with electronics and over load.

That's what I'm wondering Jimbo, if what you said is correct it might simply be the electronics in the older tools might not be able to handle the higher Amps?

Probably don't have the ability to limit the draw on the battery and prevent overload of the tool.
