Disappointed .- A great idea with poor execution
I bought this was a gift for my son who is a Dewalt fanatic. He immediately tried it out, expecting at least equivalent performance to the 18V XRP batteries. He is disappointed in the short run time and low perceived power available. His expectations were for longer run times and more power. Perhaps if this unit would work with the 4- or 5- amp hour batteries they would meet his needs. As it is, they are insufficient.

Worthwhile purchase
I have 16 other 18vt Dewalt cordless tools. This adapter allows me to replace the old 18 volt batteries as they die without having to replace the tools themselves. And I can buy new 20 max tools as the most 18 VT tools wear out without having to replace all at once.

Keeps 18 volt tools working.
Keeps your 18 volt tools working with new lithium batteries for less money than 18 volt lithium batteries. Also as you replace 18 volt tools with 20 volt tools you have batteries.

Limited applications
Only works with the 1.5 amp and 2.0 amp batteries. And there are some applications, the 18 volt vacuum for one, where the adapter well not snap in. Read the fine print as to the tools where it will work, or will not work. Where it works it's great, it's unfortunate it doesn't work in all of the 18 volt tools.

Extend the life of your tool set
I am always unhappy when new battery systems require I buy new tools. This is the PERFECT pack to give me the ability to expand the tool selection and still be able to run my old tools.

battery replacement
Great value. Bought the kit for what I would have paid for two 18 volt batteries. Now I can use with my 18 volt tools, and if I later purchase 20 volt tools I have batteries for them also.
