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.
