Dewalt 18V batteries and charger compatibility?
Are the DC9096 batteries compatible with the DW9116 battery charger? (links in part numbers) Both are 18volt. I know the 18V batteries are compatible with all 18V tools, but what about the battery chargers?

You'll have no trouble using those batteries in that charger. The charger will charge any dewalt battery up to 18 volts EXCEPT lithium- ions.

Thanks! Just what I wanted to hear.

it is always good to ask about new battery compatibility.
IN January I bought 2 new 14.4 LION Panasonic batteries. They were
physically the same as the originals but they would not charge on my Panasonic 14.4V Lithium battery charger.

Wow, I thought I had a couple of bum batteries. Then after some phone calls I had to buy the new improved Charger. The new 14.4V Charger looked just like the old 14.4V Charger but because it had a new (Improved Processor?) It worked fine so I threw out the old charger so I would not be trying to use the wrong charger.

All fine until later when I tried to charge my original set of 14.4V Lithium batteries. They would not hold a charge very long but were still functional but weak.
But then second surprise, the new Charger would not charge the old series of Panasonic 14.4 batteries. Real bummer I had already thrown out the original charger.
All these problems were preventable on closer inspection I saw the new batteries had a yellow tag on the bottom that said:
"Applicable charger:EY0L81 ONLY"

That's rough. Kind of crazy that they didn't make the new charger have the ability to charge the old ones.
