DeWalt is revolutionizing its power tool lineup this month with the launch of new high-performance models and a major overhaul of their 20V tool platform. Over the last few years, we have seen DeWalt add a lot of new technology to their cordless platforms and what we love more than anything is that they found a way to incorporate each one into the next.

However, new technology and product names can sometimes be confusing. To address this, DeWalt has streamlined its offerings, making it easier for professionals to select the right tools. Some key updates include simplified naming to eliminate confusion, enhancing the XR battery line to cover more tools and batteries, increasing compatibility across DeWalt’s systems, and a renewed focus on enhanced performance and efficiency.

This update isn’t just about slapping on a new label – it’s about simplifying their entire approach to help you find the perfect tools without any confusion or headaches. No more squinting at shelves trying to decipher confusing names and descriptions. DeWalt is creating a simple, straightforward system that cuts through the clutter.

Here’s the game-changer: they’re condensing all battery sub-brands like 20V MAX, 20V MAX XR, and 20V MAX POWERSTACK down to just two clear options – 20V and XR.

20V MAX will cover their core battery line with reliable, consistent power and as a great entry level and price friendly option. XR is where you’ll find their heavy-hitters – high-performance, long-lasting batteries with extended runtime to power through the toughest jobs.

DeWalt isn’t stopping at their 20V batteries though, they’re making it way easier to understand and choose the right tools for the job as well. For their 20V tool line, you can make the decision on what tool is needed for what job a lot easier now that they are condensing their 5 options down to just 3. Instead of a confusing mess of sub-brands like 20V MAX BRUSHLESS, ATOMIC COMPACT SERIES, 20V MAX XR, 20V MAX BRUSHLESS with XR POWERDETECT, and 20V MAX BRUSHLESS with FLEXVOLT ADVANTAGE, they’re simplifying everything down to just 3 clear categories:

20V MAX (Basic) – This covers their standard line of powerful, reliable tools you can count on for everyday use.
XR (High Performance) – These are the heavy-hitters, high-performance tools with extended runtime to power through the most demanding jobs and keep you working harder for longer.
ATOMIC COMPACT SERIES (Compact)– Perfect for tight spaces and precision work, these compact yet mighty tools deliver high efficiency in a small package.
