Is 20 volts good for a drill?
For most household jobs, a 12-volt drill will suffice and will be more compact and weightless. If you’re doing projects regularly, or plan on doing something more robust, you’ll want to get a 18- or 20-volt drill.
What is the difference between DeWalt 20v and 20v max?
the main difference is the 20v XR tools have brushless motors while the standard 20v max tools have brushed motors. the brushless motors are more energy efficient and generate less heat, the advantage being extended run time / battery life.
Is the 20-volt Max DeWalt brushless?
The DEWALT 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless Compact Drill/Driver is designed with a high performance brushless motor that delivers 340 unit watts out (UWO) and up to 57% more runtime over brushed motors. The drill/driver can complete a wide range of applications to help you power through the toughest of jobs.
Are 20v MAX and 20v max XR batteries interchangeable?

What is better 20 volt or 12 volt?
Battery voltage in cordless tools makes sense this way: the simpler the operation, the smaller the necessary energy supply. That’s why many craftsmen choose to use the 20V MAX* instead of the 12V battery for the toughest jobs: higher voltage generates more torque.

Will 20V max work with Dewalt 18V?
The adapter works great with any 20v MAX battery, and with most all 18v tools. And, it will also work with any 18v tool, if you modify the adapter (note it will void any warranty), but it is just a $50 adapter.
