I have a DeWalt battery charger model# DW9107. Which batteries can I charge in it? It says 14.4volts

I have a DeWalt hammer drill model# DCD950B. Will the battery for it, DC9096 work with my charger? It says 18volts.

From DeWalt support:

Unfortunately it looks like the battery charger will not charge a 18 volt battery that will work with the DCD950b. The charger charges up to a 14.4 volt battery and the DCD950 will take a 18 volt battery. The battery and charger you will need for the DCD950 is Charger 388683-12 and battery DC9096.

FYI, I tried the same thing. I have a dw9107 charger, and the 18v battery won't fit. I modified the battery casing a little and it charged the 18v battery just fine. I don't recommend this as I'm sure isn't recommended by Dewalt! just a little personal experience. 14.4 is only 3.6v from 18 so what the heck it worked.

  • These are NiCd batteries, so the worst that would happen is you might trash the battery. Don't try something like this with Lithium batteries; the worst could be a serious fire. – Daniel Griscom Apr 13 '16 at 11:09
