Dewalt has announced the current 18V NiCad battery platform system and remaining 18V NiCad batteries will begin to be phased out of the Dewalt product line.

Supply of Dewalt 18V NiCad batteries (DC9096 and DC9096S) are expected to run through March 2022. Additionally, the 18V XR Lithium Ion Battery (DC9180) and all other compatible battery models for 18V XRP have been discontinued.

The company has also recommended users to make the switch to its 20V Max. Dewalt is allowing customers to trade in an existing 18V tool in any condition, and receive a discount on a new equivalent DEWALT 20V product.

Anyone opting to switch to the 20V Max will benefit from a wide selection of more than 250 tools in the system, as well as products engineered specifically for trades including electricians, plumbers, mechanics, and many more. The 20V Max battery platform supports a wide range of tools including atomic compact series lightweight tools that are designed for user comfort and tight space applications.
