Cordless drill battery


Can I use a 14v battery in a Makita 12 drill without burning up the motor?

I used to use 18v batteries in my 12 dewalt...god that was a long time ago...but I wouldn't recommend it, those motors aren't made to handle those loads.

I agree tmrrptr say...

this before i have 9 makita cordless tool 7.2v to 14.4v
the 12v battery full charge it about 15v ( i test by voltage meter ) and the 14.4v it it 17v . when 14.4v under load for the job the voltage drop slight near 14 to 12v. i have try this many times is does`tn burn the motor.
