Thoughts on the Metabo 12V Battery Adapter
Most cordless power tool brands have a battery adapter for their 18V lines and several extend into 12V, so this isn’t a completely new idea. What is different is that most of those 12V adapters are stick packs instead of slide packs.
Metabo’s inclusion of an LED light is also unusual, though we’re pretty sure other brands might pick it up soon.
Overall, it’s a handy accessory to have and for $59.99, it needs to be. It’s more expensive than most of the other adapters running around and considering Metabo’s 12V line is pretty limited at the moment, there might not be a huge demand.
The tools we’ve used from Metabo’s new generation of 12V tools have been excellent and we genuinely hope they’ll continue growing it. With what we’ve seen, Metabo can certainly compete with Milwaukee and Makita in the 12V game, even if they don’t have ambitions of growing as deep a lineup.
If you’re running Metabo 12V tools, go ahead and grab this. It’s a helpful accessory that you’re sure to find a use for frequently.
