Default What rechargeable tool batteries are interchangeable?

I have Craftsman 19.2V tools that I am relatively happy with. I have seen different batteries on clearance like Dewalt, Milwaukee, Ryobi, Black & Decker, etc that all appear to have the same general shape at the 19.2V Craftsman batteries. I would like to buy some of these batteries on clearance but I'm not sure they will fit in my Craftsman tools. I also have seen these same brand tools on clearance and wondered if my Craftsman batteries would fit the tools.


Can anyone tell me for sure which battery brands are interchangeable with Craftsman and the different brands of tools?

From my experience, there is no interchangability. Even if the electrical connections are the same, there will be a difference in the case that clips to the tool. Good luck!

I don't know of any that are interchangeable. I have probably over fifty different brands of cordless tools and use them almost every day, and I can say for what you pay,the Crafstman ones seem to have the longest battery life followed by Hitachi.. They also happen to be the some of the cheapest you can buy. You can buy 2 Craftsman 19.2 batteries for less than you can buy one DeWalt 18 volt, which by the way don't last worth a crap. They are the worst I have.
Another thing, if you catch a sale at Sears, you can buy some of the kits with the tools that come with 2 batteries cheaper than you can purchase the batteries outright.

That's what I did! I got a Sears 19vt set, drill/screwgun, impact driver, sawzall, circular saw and a stand up light with 2 batteries and a charger for $250.00 last year!

I'm hunting for replacement batteries for my Ryobi 14.4 kit. Oddly enough, it appears that the cheapest ones may be the Ryobi OEM from Home Depot.

Anyone got any recommendations?
