What would happen if you used a 24v battery pack in an 18v cordless drill? Will this damage the motor? Answered
Thinking about overclocking some of my 18v power tools. I can adapt 24v battery packs to fit into them. Obvious advantage is they will run faster and should run longer with the extra power. My only concern is can this damage the motors? I think the only real risk is overheating but it I take steps to avoid that would everything else be okay? I've also considered hooking two battery packs together to run an 18v saw at 36 volts.
