    Isn't that the same BS Bosch pulled with the ir 10v tools that overnight became 12v tool, but the old 10v batteries work in the new tools and 12v batteries in the old 10v tools? Turned out to be nothing more than a labeling gimmick, batteries and tools are pretty much the same.

      With dewalt I think it has a different purpose. They have long touted that they've stuck with the same battery system and I don't think they can afford to totally abandon it, but I think they are moving to the new system. Eventually enough new and old customers will commit to the new line that they can make it their standard.

        Pretty sure Milwaukee started the higher voltage label thing, Bosch just converted over so people wouldn't think it was lower voltage, even though it's really the same

          Well, I totally agree that an 18 V with compact battery works better. Instead of dropping off your 12 V tools, it could be better to offer it to someone who utilizes this tool.

            Wish I had thought of that.
