What's the difference between type 1 and type 2 battery packs?

Version 1 vs version 2, probably just upgraded or change some internals enough to make them call it a type 2

This.

When they make a revisions change, there may be a slight difference in internal components. This just lets them know which one it is and what the difference is. More for warranty.

That would indicate a type change as well even if it's the same as the previous version if ta manufactured in a different part of the world materials could be different suppliers or quality or what not.

Interesting, I know that with the DeWalt Scroll Saw, Type 1 meant it was made in Canada, and Type 2 was made in China. 

Partly, yes... On the type 1 which I have, the upper arm drive rod can work loose and begin to rattle inside the arm. I took mine apart and reamed the inside out a bit... On the type 2 they fixed this issue...

1. That's incorrect information

2. No, that's just not correct

3. Alternative facts

While not exactly pertaining to the question at hand...... Stuart had a good article about DeWalt vented batteries.... interesting that the ones in his photos that were older are type 2 and newer are type 1.
