Dewalt has launched new oil resistant batteries for all of their cordless power tool systems – 12V Max, 20V Max, and FlexVolt. The FlexVolt battery came out earlier, when Dewalt launched their cordless pipe threader, with the 12V Max and 20V Max batteries being new releases.
Why buy one of these batteries over Dewalt’s other cordless power tool batteries?
Oils, solvents, and grease can be difficult to escape from in automotive and other work environments. Over time, these types of chemicals can damage common plastic materials. These batteries are made with a glass-filled nylon housing, making them more resistant to corrosion.
The 12V and 20V Max batteries also have a non-marring over-molded rubber base to help protect them from drops and impacts.
Dewalt Oil Resistant Battery Sizes
- 12V Max 3.0Ah, DCB124G

Dewalt says that these 12V and 20V Max batteries are compatible with all Dewalt and Mac Tools 12V and 20V Max tools and chargers.
Oil-resistant batteries will be a great fit for the new Dewalt cordless ratchets. I wonder if we’ll see more new automotive-oriented tools from Dewalt in 2022.
