dewalt xrp batteries

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Sun Sep 15, 2019 4:40 pm

I bought some used dewalt tools at an auction, and one of them was an XRP drill and charger, but no battery. When I checked my regular 18 volt batteries do not fit the drill. If I buy an XRP battery can it be used in anything other than an XRP Tool?

DeWalt has an adapter for 20V batteries to 18V tools.

Been purchasing 20V DeWalt tools to replace the broken 18V ones. Purchased the 20V to 18V adapter instead of purchasing 18V batteries for the working 18V tools.

I finally got smart enough to read the fine print on side of drill, it is a 14.4 volt drill, not an 18 as I thought. Not sure what I will do with it.

John,
I had the 14.4V XRP drill and really liked it. Motor finally started making grinding noises and putting out the classic hot electrical smell. The two batteries I had were on their last legs anyway. NiCad batteries were getting expensive and harder to find since lithium batteries had come out.

Put it in the trash.

Wait. DeWalt made 16 volt tools. Not sure If they made an adapter for the 14 volt tools to larger batteries. The 20 volt adapter for 18 volt tools costs in the mid $30s. Not sure I would purchase an adapter if there is one available.

No 16V Dewalt tools. The 14.4 batteries will cost you around $70 each. Agree with Eugene. Throw the drill away.

I have a difficult time throwing away a tool. I have sent my battery packs out to have them rebuilt.
Some companies rebuild them with older technology NICD batteries - with a lower power density, but functional.
Some rebuild them at a higher cost with Nickel Metal Hydride batteries or OEM - these are usually a higher cost, but seem to last longer.
Google "dewalt battery rebuild service" and there are a few options available shipping or possibly local. I use a local battery shop (no brand name).

Or loan it out to "friends" or neighbors who have a habit of destroying tools or not bringing them back.

Put in an 18 volt battery and use it until it melts?

I would gladly do that since I have a plethora of 18 volt tools and batteries, but I cannot figure a way to do it.

A power supply and a block of wood shaped like the battery with the two wires in the appropriate place to hit the contacts. Of course it would have to be held in place with copious amounts of "the handyman's secret weapon". You now have a corded cordless work bench drill. I think I have some 24VDC power supplies (1.5 or 2 amps) from years ago when I worked on EAS systems that I'm sure I could part with one of them. Should make it hum right along. They have a fairly long and well insulated output cord, are operated by a key to stop unauthorized drill use, and have RF filtering.

I plan to take it to Cubarama this week and put a sign on it: !4.4 volt drill, case, and charger, no battery, FREE. If no one takes it I will throw everything away except the charger, since it is one of the universals that handles everything up to 18 volts.
