Parkside Performance series is a newer series with better motor and longer-lasting battery than with Parkside X20V Team series. I am trying to find out whether the older batteries of the old generation Parkside tools work with the new generation Performance series.

enter image description here

I could see that Parkside Performance series has 4 pins while the Parkside X20V Team series has 3 pins in the charger so they may not be compatible in the charging. The picture is from the video here but no mention about the backward compability.

Are the Parkside 20V batteries in Parside Performance series and Parkside X20V Team series compatible?

  • I'm in ireland have lots of parkside tools...just bought for 50 euro black impact gun 20v .. Works fine with my batterys....one thing I noticed have the black cordless 20v angle grinder or 20v performance type with the 4 ah battery is an animal with power....I have a parkside green 20v angle grinder supplied with 2 ah battery its useless....if I put 4 ah battery battery for black 20v performance type....she is an animal....strange....i know that ah is amp hours as in the time ya should get from a full charge...but ya should still get the same punch from the battery as the 20v performance large – Dominic Dec 26 '20 at 5:41

No, they are not. Locking mechanism has a different shape.

Seems they are unifying it, now the team has black color and 4 pins (end of 2019) but now the old preformance series is not compatible with the new one. Ended up with a crap worth of 400$...

Just bought the Cordless Combi Hammer Drill (PKHAP 20Li-A1) which is the "Performance" series of Parkside tools. I bought it because i already have the angle grinder and drill/screw machine. Both from the "Performance" series.

And i'm very disappointed to see that the new Performance Series uses the old line of batteries "X 20V Team". And my first 2 Performance tools uses the newer Samsung batteries which are not compatible with the "X 20V Team".

X 20V Team = "Powerful lithium-ion battery with 3-stage charge status display" Performance (1st series) = "Powerful lithium-ion battery with high-quality Samsung battery cells"

So, they quit the Samsung batteries to go back to the old "X 20V Team" batteries..

No unfortunately they are not compatible I purchased the new performance drill to replace my 20v team drill and was disappointed to find the battery’s are not interchangeable. Physically the mount s slightly different.
