Definitely avoid doing that. Lithium batteries are a totally different technology than Ni-Cad or NiMH batteries. A Ni-Cad charger could overcharge lithium batteries which could potentially lead to the battery going bad, exploding, fire, etc. And likewise with Ni-Cad tools, they don't know how to properly treat lithium batteries. Ni-Cad batteries can be drained down quite a bit, but lithium batteries are supposed to stay above a certain voltage. If drained too low, lithium batteries will go bad or could become very unstable resulting in fire, etc. Lithium power tools monitor the battery voltage and automatically stop working when the voltage drops too low. A Ni-Cad tool will keep draining a lithium battery down into unsafe voltage levels. Hope this helps.

Short answer: Don't mix Ni-Cad / NiMH equipment with Lithium batteries.

Amazon reviews say this battery is only 1.5 Ah. I pass.

Note this is just the 1.5ah - just the LBXR20. Walmart typically sells the Drill and 2 of these for around $40. Walmart had the LBXR2020 - the 2.0ah with the 3 spools for $20 quite recently. I missed out out on those. Those were the best deal on these LBXR20 batteries.

Thanks OP (jeffmorr)! Have been waiting for a decent deal on the battery. So many B+D tools are "bare", no battery. Don't mind if I can find a deal like this every now and then,

This is a good price, but note that it is for the 1.5 Ah battery. The standard grey bottom batteries are 2.0 and the larger batteries are 4.0. Each of those has been on SD for $10 per Ah in the last year.

1.5 ah is horrible. Don't waist your money in this. Ah is the number everyone needs to be focused on when purchasing purchasing batteries and 1.5 is extremely low and won't last long.

unless of course you care about weight and only plan on using it for short periods, then it is perfectly fine..
