The FLEXVOLT battery powers a new lineup of brushless 60V MAX and 120V MAX FLEXVOLT tools. The innovative technology is backwards compatible with most existing DeWalt 20V MAX tools and chargers. The FLEXVOLT battery provides up to four times runtime and more than three times battery power vs. DeWalt 18V NiCad.
The key to this technology is the ability of the FLEXVOLT battery to switch between DeWalt tools of varying voltages whether it be 20V MAX, 60V MAX or 120V MAX. Two FLEXVOLT batteries together power the new DeWalt 120V MAX tools meaning that high power tool applications that previously could only be accomplished by corded tools can now be performed with the new FLEXVOLT system of cordless tools.
