  • 20 Volt: 

20V tools and batteries are for low to medium demand use due to their size and amp/hour rating. They work in all applications but will have a more limited run-time and strength compared to 60V.

  • 60 Volt: 

When you need something that can handle a heavy load and run cooler, then a 60V may be a better choice. These battery packs can run not only a 60V tool but also a 20V or pair two up and run a 120V tool. You will experience greater versatility with the larger voltage.
