Deep Dive: Dewalt Brushless Drills & Batteries

DeWalt, a top brand in the power tool industry, is known for its high-quality and reliable products that are ideal for a variety of applications, including ice fishing with RAZR Ice Augers. Their brushless drills, in particular, are designed with advanced technologies and features that make them a perfect match for drilling through thick ice.

DeWalt's brushless motors, which are a key technology used in their drills, eliminate the need for brushes that can wear out over time. This results in longer runtime and more power, making them ideal for demanding applications like ice fishing.


DeWalt's XR technology enhances the performance, durability, and user experience of their brushless drills, while FlexVolt technology allows their batteries to switch between different voltage levels, providing users with more flexibility. And DeWalt says that XR stands for: "XR Stands for eXtreme Runtime (may also be called extended runtime) If it's stamped on the batteries: this is our claim that these batteries last longer than our non-XR versions. They are the higher amp hour batteries and have a larger fuel tank. If it is stamped on the tool: this means that the tool is brushless."

With Tool Connect, users can track, manage, and customize their DeWalt tools using a smartphone app. This feature allows users to monitor their tool's battery life, locate their tool if it's lost or stolen, and set custom speed and torque settings for different applications.


DeWalt's 20V MAX Brushless Drills utilize brushless motor technology, which provides higher efficiency, longer lifespan, and greater power output. They also generate less heat and require less maintenance. Additionally, these drills use XR lithium-ion batteries, which offer longer runtimes, faster charge times, and a longer lifespan than standard lithium-ion batteries.


The high-speed transmissions of DeWalt's 20V MAX Brushless Drills provide fast and efficient drilling through tough materials like ice, while the 3-mode LED work light illuminates the work area, reducing the risk of mistakes or accidents. The precision control features of these drills allow users to adjust the speed and torque to match the material they're working with, ensuring the best possible results.

DeWalt's 20V MAX Brushless Drills also feature ergonomic designs that make them comfortable and easy to use, even during extended periods of use. The handles are designed to provide a comfortable grip, while the overall weight and balance of the tool are optimized to reduce fatigue and strain.

In summary, DeWalt's brushless drill line uses advanced technology to deliver high-performance and long-lasting durability, making them a top choice for professionals and DIY enthusiasts alike.


Some of the key technologies used in DeWalt's brushless drills include:

  • Brushless motors, which eliminate the need for brushes that can wear out over time, resulting in longer runtime and more power.

  • XR technology, which enhances the performance, durability, and user experience of their brushless drills.

  • FlexVolt technology, which allows their batteries to switch between different voltage levels, providing users with more flexibility.

  • Tool Connect, which allows users to track, manage, and customize their DeWalt tools using a smartphone app.

Dewalt offers a range of batteries for their 20V MAX XR lineup. The Dewalt 20V 5Ah Battery is equipped with a 3-LED Fuel Gauge System to provide immediate feedback on the state of charge and has a lightweight design for easy transportation. The 20V MAX XR 6Ah Battery does not have any memory and has virtually no self-discharge, which maximizes productivity and reduces downtime. The 20V MAX 8Ah XR Lithium Ion Battery delivers up to one-third more run time than the DCB206 6Ah battery while maintaining the same size and weight, and includes a Fuel Gauge LED charge indicator and a 3-year limited warranty. The 20V/60V MAX FLEXVOLT 9.0Ah Battery is a dual-voltage battery that automatically changes voltage when changing tools, providing up to 6X runtime in 20V MAX tools and corded power in 60V MAX and 120V MAX tools. It also runs cooler than the leading competitor 9.0 Ah battery pack under constant discharge. The FLEXVOLT 20V/60V MAX 12.0 Ah Battery provides up to 8X runtime in 20V MAX and delivers ultimate power in 60V MAX and 120V MAX cordless tools. It changes voltage when going from 20V MAX to 60V MAX tools, includes a built-in LED Fuel Gauge for instant charge status, and is compatible with 20V MAX tools and chargers. Lastly, the FLEXVOLT 20V/60V MAX 15.0 Ah Battery has the highest capacity of any battery on the DEWALT cordless system and changes voltage when going from 20V MAX to 60V MAX tools. It is compatible with a variety of 20V MAX tools and chargers.

Oh and have you tried DeWalt PowerStack for Ice Fishing? We'd love your feedback.

  • DeWalt PowerStack batteries use stacked lithium-ion polymer pouches instead of cylindrical cells.

  • Current 20V Max batteries use either 18650 or 21700 cells, while PowerStack uses a stack of 5 lithium-polymer pouches.

  • The use of stacked pouches allows for a smaller pack size with the same amount of power output.

  • PowerStack batteries have a high energy density, which means they can provide even more power while occupying the same space.

  • Stacked cell batteries offer greater energy density and more life cycles, providing several advantages.

  • DeWalt claims that PowerStack batteries and technology provide more power with less weight and size.

Overall, DeWalt's brushless drills are designed to deliver high performance and long-lasting durability, making them a top choice for pairing with RAZR Ice Augers for ice fishing.
