BATTERY DRAIN
It is difficult to remove the battery from the adapter. DO NOT LEAVE BATTERY IN THE ADAPTER AS IT WILL DRAIN YOUR NEW 20V BATTERY OVERNIGHT. You would be better off just replacing your 18v batteries.

Old tool new power
I got this for my father. He has a full line of older tools and he has gotten the value out of them 5 times over. But the batteries needed a Viking funeral years ago. This adapter works great and we are now running some new Lithuims.

Bought for an old 18v Xrp hammer drill
Works as advertised and allowed me to use larger capacity batteries on some old tools I lost the charger to. One star off because of the bulk of the item.

Keeping my old tools alive!
I am so happy I picked up this adaptor! I had a nice set of old 18v drills and an impact, but the old batteries just couldn't hold a charge for more than 5 minutes. While I did end up getting a new 20V Max drill and impact, my old tools still had life left in them. Enter this adaptor. It allows me to use my new 20v batteries and have back up tools, or have a double set of tools for a big job. The only down side to this adaptor that I have found is the added mass to the tool, but that is a given. The reduced size of the Li-Ion battery pack helps make up for that. I have used this for close to a year now, and have yet to have any troubles with it.

The description and tech specs says it will work only with the 200 and 203 series batteries but I have the 204 series batteries, will this product work the newer series of batteries?
DIYer on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use this for my 203 series battery and it works fine.
I would think if it were more versatile they would certainly take advantage of the wider customer baseby including the 204 series in their description.
