Each Worx 20V 2.0Ah battery is compatible with all 20V Worx tools – both garden tools and power tools – as well as all 18V Worx tools. PowerShare lets you share the battery and save money.
Great adapter to use 20V battery in MOST 18V tool. As mentioned in other review, works with 5ah batteries and smaller. Not all DeWalt 18V tools/accessories accommodate this adapter. WARNING: just like the AC outlet wall warts that convert 120AC to some DC voltage, they`re drawing power while in the outlet.
Going from 24V to 18V is like going from 12 to 9, so it will definitely work at a sufficient speed to be good in most scenarios. If you do not actually have overheating problems with the device you try to cool-down you can certainly use it at 18V.
All batteries and chargers are interchangeable with all the tools in the range, many of which can be bought as body only (without battery) machines – meaning you can save needless expenditure on additional batteries and chargers if you purchase additional tools for your tool kit.
Twitter header dimensions should be 1500 x 1500 pixels. Leave enough space at the bottom left for your profile picture, which is 400 x 400 pixels, and keep in mind that part of your photo is usually cropped to fit the banner.

Yes. Connect the batteries in series which means connect the positive and negative posts of the batteries with a jumper cable. you now have 12V battery which matches the output of the charger. The batteries do not have to be of the same capacity (AH) or in the same state of discharge.
Since 12V lead-acid batteries were originally designed for cars, there is a lot stuff that runs this way. 18V would be risky, I would not try to plug a 12V device into an 18V battery. But if you happen to have 18V for whatever reason, you can always use a DC-DC converter.
All products within the range share battery compatibility and batteries can be freely swapped between them.
Product Overview. Add versatility to your tool box with the 20V MAX* to 18V Battery Adapter Kit. This adapter allows you to use select DEWALT® 20V MAX* Lithium Ion slide pack batteries with DEWALT 18V power tools.
No. You can use it on a 20V drill. For a 12V drill, you use a 12V battery.

Bought trimmer last year…battery no good this year…will not charge

Sorry.

I used my Worx trimmer successfully last season. This spring when I went to use it, it would not hold a charge. The light shows green on the charger but the trimmer only works for about a minute before it slows to a stop. If you press the on button again, it will go very slowly then stops.
