Default Tool question

Hi Gents

Will I ruin a 18 volt saws all if I mate it with a 20 volt battery?

It might help if you could explain exactly what you are trying to do. But the short answer is NO and it MIGHT be OK. Need to know make of saw and charger and specifications and also specs of battery. Regards, Kevin.

Desalt now has an adapter for 18 bolt tools that allows you to use a 20volt battery. So as for as their tools you should be good to go.

I believe all the big names that say "20 Volt" are actually 18v and they are advertised as "20 Volt Max"

Probably similar to running a 6 volt starter or heater motor on 12 volts, just runs faster.
