Using a 20V Battery in a 60V DeWalt Tool

When you are in the middle of a project, the last thing you want to worry about is losing power because your battery dies. As you reach into your tool bag to pull out a fresh one, remember to look and ensure you have the correct voltage. You might think that all DeWalt batteries are the same and can be used across all lines of cordless tools. That’s not the case.
