  • nicad batteries

    I have some nicad max 14.4 (?) volt batteries. The fit into my cordless equipment that came with 18 volt lithium batteries. Is there any problem in using these batteries?

    no. your tool just won't perform quite as well as it does with the higher voltage batteries, but in a pinch.............
    there's a solution to every just have to be willing to find it.

      I'm not an electrical expert, however I believe running a low voltage battery in a motor designed for higher voltage will cause the motor to run hotter and possibly damage it. I agree with Finer.....Ray
