If you’re researching the best Dewalt 20V Max cordless power tool battery deals for Black Friday 2021, this is the right place. We also added a single FlexVolt battery deal at the end of this post.
We’ll start off with quick info on the best Dewalt battery deals we found so far, followed by the full discussion. Please share your thoughts in the comments section, especially if you’ve found better deals!
Historically, we tend to see Black Friday deals on battery 2-packs, with both being the same size. We’ll discuss a couple of those deals here as well, but the main focus here will be on two Dewalt 20V Max battery 3-pack deals that offer the most value and runtime for the money.

2 Best Dewalt 20V Max Battery Deals
Dewalt 20V Max Battery 3-Pack (DCB346-3)
Battery Sizes: 2Ah, 4Ah, 6Ah
Dewalt 20V Max Battery 3-Pack (DCB248-3)
Battery Sizes: 2Ah, 4Ah, 8Ah
One of the best things about these Dewalt 20V Max battery 3-pack deals is that you get a variety of sizes. You get a compact 2Ah battery, a 4Ah battery, and a larger form factor 6Ah or 8Ah battery. This gives you the flexibility to power a very wide range of Dewalt cordless power tools with the best battery size for the task.
The other great thing about these deals is their price, as there is no better value right now – at least not that we could find. If you know better, please let us know in the comments!
Greg (thank you again!) wrote in last year, asking about the Home Depot 3-pack promo when it first appeared for the 2020 holiday season:
Stuart, is that 2/4/6AH DeWalt 20V battery pack a good deal for $150? I need to pick up some spares this year.
Alex (thank you!) wrote in with a heads-up about this year’s new Dewalt promo at Lowe’s. They wrote:
I just came across this deal at Lowe’s for an 8ah, 4ah and 2ah Dewalt battery set for $169. It seems like a pretty good deal at just over $12/ah.
$169 is indeed a great price for this promo! I checked our archives from last year’s coverage, and Home Depot had a similar Dewalt battery bundle pack, but at $149. The deal has returned at the same price. So, we now have two separate Dewalt 20V Max battery deals for Black Friday 2021.
At first, I thought that the two deals are the same, but they’re not. The two Dewalt 20V Max battery 3-packs have just one different battery – Home Depot’s offer includes a 6Ah battery while Lowe’s offer has a 8Ah battery.
Let’s start off by calculating the cost per amp-hour for each deal. As many of you might already know, the amp-hour (Ah) rating of a battery refers to its charge capacity. This directly correlates to runtime; the higher the amp-hour rating, the longer the runtime. Thus, a lower cost per amp-hour means lower operating expense.
Home Depot Deal: 2Ah + 4Ah + 6Ah for $149 = $12.42 per amp-hour
Lowe’s Deal: 2Ah + 4Ah + 8Ah for $169 = $12.07 per amp-hour
Thus, Lowe’s deal is technically the better value. In my opinion, however, the cost per amp-hour is close enough here that you could disregard it. These are both excellent values.
I would say go for the Home Depot Dewalt battery deal for the lower price, or the Lowe’s Dewalt battery deal for the longer runtime (or if you must have the absolute best possible bargain). Or, if you’re a late holiday shopper, choose according to which retailer still has batteries in stock.
But are These Good Deals? For the sake of this comparison, let’s consider Black Friday deal pricing exclusively. The next-best deals are a Dewalt 20V Max battery 4-pack at Lowe’s that comes with 2x 2Ah batteries and 2x 4Ah batteries. Add 2x 6Ah batteries, and the price for all 6 batteries would come out to $328. If you split that with a friend, you can get a 3pc set of 2Ah, 4Ah, and 6Ah batteries for $164.
So, the next-best deal gives you 3 batteries with a total charge capacity of 12Ah for $164. Home Depot’s 3-battery deal is $149. Lowe’s deal gives you an extra 2Ah for just $5 more, which is 16.7% greater charge capacity for 3% more money.
At the time of this posting, the next best deal that I’ve found is a Lowe’s 4-battery deal, which gives you 12Ah at $13.25 per amp-hour. There’s also a 6Ah battery 2-pack for $169, which comes out to $14.08 per amp-hour, and a compact 3Ah battery 2-pack for $99, which comes out to $16.50 per amp-hour.
