Warranty & Service Information
Does DEWALT® have an 18V stem top to 20V MAX Adapter?
Yes, launching late December 2015 will be the DCA1820
This adapter will allow people with 18V stem top tools to use the newer 20V MAX batteries. The 20V batteries will not charge on the 18V chargers however using this adapter, so the user will also need a 20V MAX charger. Another option available about the same time will be the DCA2203C which will be a kit that includes the adapter, 2 compact 20V MAX 2 AH batteries, and a charger.

I wish DeWalt would stop being so secretive about this new adapter and just come out and tell it's customers which tools it will or will not work with. Give us a friggin' list so we know what we're dealing with here!
Its great that this spotlight has lots of power, but the lack of adjustment for the output reduces its utility. I have $1 bicycle lights with multiple flashing modes through one sequential switch, and yet this tool appears to only offer on/red/off through (presumably) sequential trigger pulls. A thousand lumens is far too bright working under a car at a foot or two away, and yet often the power would be useful in other circumstances. It could easily have incorporated sequential pulls for each white LED, a fourth for the red LED alone, and possibly even fast and slow sequential flashing of all LED's as a hazard warning beacon. Throw in a USB charging port or two (since it would often not be moved in many usage scenarios), and you would have a very useful multipurpose tool.
The cost of the modifications would have a miniscule effect on the price, and a far greater effect on DeWalt's bottom line, since I don't plan on buying this item until it has been fixed and would consider other brands that have these features if it appears it is not going to be updated.
