What is a 20V Drill Battery?

20V drill battery is considered as full charged unloaded voltage in the battery. When it uses it drops to 18V. So 18V is the nominal voltage of the 20V battery. So there is no huge difference in 20V and 18V drill batteries. In the USA Dewalt name their battery as 20V and out of the USA they name the battery as 18V. So both can be used in 18V,20V tools.

Can I Interchange 18V and 20V?

Of course, you can interchange 18V battery and 20V battery if the socket is compatible with the tool and battery. If the mounting socket is not compatible you can use an adaptor for interchanging the battery. There is no problem using these batteries by interchanging.

Dewalt XR stands for eXtream Runtime. These batteries are specially designed for brushless motors. it will remain 33% longer than 20 Max batteries.

What is Dewalt 20V Max, 20V XR and 20V ATOMIC?

20V Max is used for the standard size and used for the brushed motors. But 20V XR will use for the brushless motors and it has designed compacted and enhanced components. When we consider the 20V Atomic it is more compact size and less weight. It is really useful for tight spaces and overhead works and with a longer life span. it is very good for brushless motors.

Most batteries are available as single or double. But most people buy double packs. because it is considerably less than two times of same single battery. So most of the products are double packs.
