A couple of months ago when we reviewed the Dremel 8200 cordless rotary tool, we received an email from a New Zealand reseller that was slightly confused about the 10.8V vs. 12V Max differences, or lack thereof. Since then, additional 12V Max tools have come out, and we have occasionally received similar emails that ask about the differences between those versions and the 10.8V tools available in other countries.
Last night I saw a tweet (you can connect with us via Twitter as well!) asking about when the Dewalt 20V Max cordless power tools would be available in Australia. The answer is that they will NEVER be available outside North America. Overseasa, the Dewalt 20V Max cordless tools are branded as Dewalt 18V XR. I’m still not sure when the 18V XR tools will be available in Australia, sorry about that.
