Is there a difference between 10.8V batteries and 12V Max* batteries?

No. It is how they are marketed and labeled rather than in their actual performance or specifications.

Technical Difference

  • Voltage Rating: Both 10.8V and 12V Max* batteries have a nominal voltage of around 10.8V. The 12V Max* labeling refers to the maximum voltage the battery can reach when fully charged, which is about 12V. The 10.8V rating is the nominal voltage.

Marketing Difference

  • Labeling: The change from 10.8V to 12V Max was primarily a marketing decision. The 12V Max label is used to emphasize the maximum potential voltage of the battery when fully charged, which sounds more powerful to consumers.
  • Compatibility: Despite the different labels, 10.8V and 12V Max batteries are fully compatible with both 10.8V and 12V Max tools and chargers.

Practical Considerations

  • Performance: There is no difference in performance between the two labels. Both deliver the same power and runtime.
  • Tool Compatibility: 12V Max batteries can be used on 10,8V tools. And 10,8V batteries can also be used on 12V Max tools

In summary, the main difference is in the labeling, with 12V Max* being the marketing term for the same 10.8V nominal voltage battery. The performance and compatibility remain largely the same.
