"For Use With Greenworks 80V Most Tools"

So just to be clear, can these be used with lower-voltage tools? Such as a 20V trimmer, or a 40v mower? And the tool has some sort of intelligent circuitry (or whatever) where it'll only accept as much 'juice' as it needs? (sort of like my cell phone)

Just starting to look into these battery-powered tools, and trying to decide which line to standardize on, and I didn't *think* they could be used interchangeably... but I saw a sign at Home Depot's Ryobi display last weekend that made me think *their* tools+batteries could be used that way.

But the way that's written above (the part I quoted) makes it sound like the Greenworks 80V batteries don't even work with all of the Greenworks 80V tools... or does that part just refer to the LED indicator, which works with most of the Greenworks 80V tools?

I'm certainly no expert - I only have a couple of the Greenworks Pro 80V line; but my understanding is that 80V batteries ONLY work with 80V tools. 40V batteries ONLY work with 40V tools, etc.

Thank you... that's sort of what I originally thought, but then I was walking by the Ryobi display at Home Depot last weekend, and it made it sound like the Ryobi One+ batteries could be used with any Ryobi One+ tool... which made me wonder whether the Greenworks line could do that, too.

80v batteries for 80v tools. The problem with the 4ah battery is that it 2 inches longer than the 2ah battery. The snowblower battery door wont close completely with the 4ah battery installed.

The Ryobi One+ system is all 18V, so yes, you can own one battery and use any One+ tool.

The Greenworks lines are different as they are different voltages. Batteries are shaped differently and I think the contacts are in different locations. Think of it as trying to attach a 6V stick battery in an 18V tool.

Yep as per others the voltage has to match the tool. 24,40,60 and 80 all have different battery styles and connectors so you can't interchange them (and avoid blowing up lower voltage tools).

Any idea if it fits properly in the 80V mower?

Does this mean I should be good running 80v GW batteries inside a 82v Snapper tool? i..e. negligible explosion / degradation risk

If they have the same pinout and connector it might work, but I have no idea personally for snapper tools. The kobalt 80v tools are interchangeable as an example but you have to grind out one of the containment rails.

To clarify, they ARE interchangeable with slight mod and the 82v powers just fine. I'm just operating under the presumption that 80v battery in an 82v tool is less of a hazard than an 82v battery in an 80v tool.

That was only on the original revision. The current design has a bigger door and the larger battery fits.
