The old lead acid batteries ranged from usable to absolute crap. Dewalt does actually sell a manufacturer approved adapter to adapt their old style tools to modern lithium battery packs. I was pleasantly surprised that they would even offer forward compatibility for any of their older offerings. It seems most of the industry trys to punish us for clinging to our older stuff lol.
I Saw that! I have, oddly, 5 batteries and only a simple dewalt drill but im guessing because it was physically light and it was also decently powerful my gpa got it for less fatigue, and the 5 batteries maybe for keep going or over time needed it.. or maybe he planned to get some more of theirs but thats around his health issues (COPD) really put an end to his wood working. I actually can still charge one of the packs and it will work for notably not long but long enough i just put a drill bit in it for general stuff and then leave it near the charger. step bit come in handy lol.
but I want to get one since I have 4 dewalt 20 SLIM (2. amp?) packs meant for heated jacket but one battery lasts a long time on that
And this will give me a use for them that doesnt have to bulky adapt to my milwaukees AND matches colors and then I have a decent drill to use

by todays standards. but does great for rear echelon duties at home. Like a humvee but its not grossly overused beyond its intent or powered by a inefficient weak slug (6.5 lol... ) old ones at least
Since I want to get adapters for other old tools,
Im really looking forward to using some old 18 volt And looking at maybe even old milwaukee 12 volt tools. An LED bulb and I will have a good spot light 12
a 18volt drill thats heavy and large Ise good for holding the paint mix thingy Or if I ever had a "portable" drill press mock it up in one of those.
There is a right angle drill thats pretty small but would be handy for things. I have a corded one too.
i have the sawzall but I would like to get a modern one since the weight alone is a lot on the old kind
I think theres a jigsaw in the 12 but I would have to look.
