Here is an interesting video.

I bought an adapter for my Bosch drill and Black and Decker. I have 4 batteries for my weed wacker and a blower. Now have 6 batteries.
Here are pictures.

These things are long overdue...imagine the market for established owners!

Wow, my head is spinning after watching the video. very confusing to me.

Sounds like the real deal if it works. I don't use my battery tools much except my drill motor and driver. The saws and other assorted ones I only use if I go on the road for a job. I must have a half dozen chargers all plugged in. I can see the advantage, but looks like a person needs a different adapter for each brand?

my friend who taught me how to install car stereos in the 1970s recently did something in the same spirit.

His 90 year old mom still enjoyed using her 40 year old electric Black&Decker lawnmower, but he was concerned she would run over the cord. Upon disassembly, he noticed the motor is actually a DC style.

Voila, he made up a battery pack holder and plug and now she has a cordless lawnmower that runs on a couple of DeWalt batteries that can be recharged easily.

I bought an adapter for my 18v DeWalt tools so it could use the new, 20v LI batteries. Unhappily, it is nearly impossible to remove the adapter from the tool, and the LI battery is barely able to hold a charge. So I've purchased new 18v batteries and will use them until they die and I'm forced to go 20v. I hope DeWalt will fix the adapter so it is more easily removed from the tool, I don't really want to buy adapters for all six of the tools. Ask me why I'm not a DeWalt fan.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I am confused. So which main battery do you buy to use on all the tools and then buy different adapters for each tool? And then can you use different voltages on each tool or just one voltage? And if you use a 20v. battery on a 12v. tool does it go nearly twice as fast, like when you used to put a 12v battery in a 6 v. auto?

That might work also to power up the tools that are now obsolete because they don't make the older batteries.

About 5 years ago I saw this Bosch circular saw on sale on ebay for $20. it looked like a corded saw in the picture. I bought it and when it came it was a battery operated. No battery or charger. So off I go to the store to buy a battery and charger. They don't sell them anymore because the new saws have a small flat battery. So I buy them on Amazon, $85.Battery and $65. charger, for the old style honken set.

These battery tools over the years have cost me more than the old corded ones I have had for 40 years. Always new batteries, nicon to lithium and they are coming out with a new one of a different metal.....

I think they are playing this game from the computer manufacturers, where every couple of years they come out with the new battery and then the tool is obsolete. Instead of configuring the batteries to fit the all the tools like maybe a standard configuration similar to flashlights?
That is my take on it anyway.
