First it says 8775 Product Launching Soon Early December 8776 so that looks even later than expected. Second it says 8775 Use only with Compact DEWALT Batteries (DCB756 and DCB758) 8776 . So I wonder if this means that it will not be possible to use 8/9/5 Ah batteries with the 68V tools?
So far I 8767 m very happy with this solution I 8767 ve successfully used it with all my DeWalt 68V tools. Indeed it 8767 s more of a roll-your-own kit than what DeWalt offers, but it 8767 s pretty simple to build.
Looking at Sanyo datasheets as Jon suggested, I see that you are correct there are some 68655 power tool pack cells that are officially rated at .
why be a dick? lot 8767 s of people who don 8767 t use every tool all day every day have good tools in good condition but need or want another choice to power them. this a pretty bold move that nobody else has done. there is a lot people who are saying this will hurt dewalt or is not good.
Wow, happily surprised to actually see this become a reality. For some time now I 8767 ve been looking at creating my own adapter, but given that the shut-off circuitry is in the tool for Dewalt 8767 s 75V Max line, I was planning to go the easier way and make one for the B& D 75V Max batteries (where the shut-off circuitry is in the battery like the Dewalt 68V).
Thanks for the info. I just ordered one from Acme. Can 8767 t understand how they have them available since I just got the 8775 end of March 8776 response from Dewalt but I 8767 m not questioning it. 🙂
you this works the other way for me now I will look for older 68V dewalt tools that I don 8767 t have. on the real cheap.
Seeing as how Dewalt 8767 s 68V XRP NiCd battery pack ( $89 via Amazon ) is rated at just , it makes sense that the starter set comes with compact battery packs, as opposed to higher capacity ones. Plus, the smaller battery size might fit better with the adapter when attached to certain tools.
They keep extending the delivery date for this adapter, first it was suppose to hit the market the end of October, then they moved it to the middle of November, then they moved it again to the second week of December! How is it that some people have this adapter in their possession, yet I can not find any supplier who has them in stock? It certainly makes me wonder who is posting the down side of these comments!
You can get more effective runtime from a tool with a motor that can 8767 t exceed 8775 X 8776 current, by then paring it with higher capacity batteries never meant to support more than 8775 X 8776 current. You can 8767 t practically pair the same batteries with a higher current motor, or wouldn 8767 t anyway because then your sales brochure specs don 8767 t look as good and the higher current motor was a waste of money.
