Can someone confirm these are the adapters that will fit a Dewalt XRP nicad drill?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-4pcs-New-Dewalt-DCA1820-18V-to-20V-MAX-Adapter-Converter-For-Dewalt-Battery/263410102114?hash=item3d54772f62:g:HN0AAOSwW6BaRNmO

If so these retailed around £60 last year for one!

Didn't take long for the Chinese to copy them.

I’ve heard nothing but bad stories about the Chinese copies on the dewalt Facebook page.

I hear you Stevie but for £8 it's worth a punt. I can always return for a full refund through Paypal.

As BA says it’s not worth 8quid to f*ck one of your batteries.

i was lucky as i only had the saw for a few weeks and the neighbour i was helping had several dewalt batteries
without use the adapter drained the battery over about 2 days to the point the cells would not charge as in not register there was even a battery in the charger
just sent it back with no mention off dodgy adapters

I didn't realise they could mess up my batteries.

I received an email from ebay saying the listing had been removed. No reason given but there's a red flag rightthere. I'll return if they arrive.
