Q: Are the batteries interchangeable?

A: Yes, all of the tools in the PRO Cordless System use the same style of battery. There are 7 different batteries in the range, which all have different capacities. For the FSA 65, we recommend the smaller capacity AP 100 battery as it is lighter and means the tool is perfectly balanced, but you can use any of the other batteries in this range.
