ALDI Xfinity Batteries 20V 2ah $39.99 / 4ah $49.99 @ ALDI

80

Along with the batteries they've listed some cordless power tools (see photo of catalogue). I'm hoping Bunnings drops the price of their Ozito 18V batteries in response.

    I think these 20v battery are not interchangeable with Ozito 18v, so unlikely Bunning will anything.

      They're not interchangeable but based on past Aldi offers, Bunnings have dropped the price of their batteries. I'm pretty sure both are technically 18.5V batteries but for some reason Aldi 'rounds up' theirs to 20V. 5S Li-Ion 18650 cells with a nominal voltage of 3.7V = 18.5V

        Yep, though unfortunately Aldi have bumped the price. Last time Aldi 4Ah were $39.99 (as well as the Ozito's when they matched the price.)

          And the time before that, they were $29 (and ozito price matched)

            @fruxo: I remember buying from Aldi for $29 catalogue price.

          They have never been over $40 so this is a new High for them. Normally $40
          Then $30 on sale then $20 on clearance for the 4ah batteries.

    The equivalent Ozito 4Ah battery is $70 so there could possibly be a saving there but the rest is already cheaper at Bunnings sorry.

    Ozito PXC 2Ah Battery - $25
    Ozito PXC Compact Multi-Tool - $39
    Ozito PXC Recip Saw - $45

      Fair point. I'm more interested in buying a bunch of the Ozito 4Ah batteries & hoping Bunnings drops their price.

        Yeah, I apologise… as GreenRomeo states below, the ALDI tools are both Brushless so the equivalents above aren't actually equivalents at all! The 4Ah batteries are really only classed as 'bargains' when they're $40 or $30 though.

        Yup I've been hanging out for a 4.0Ah Ozito PXC for one of my 2X tools for months. I've only got a 3Ah battery and would really prefer 2 x 4Ah.

      Looks like Bunnings has already started on the price drops

      The Multitool was $59, then $49 but have decided to beat at $39
      Recip saw was $55 and 2Ah battery $35.

        Ah right, sorry I assumed they were their normal prices as it usually take them a while. Didn't have time to check PH.

        •  

          Well, you weren't wrong.. still cheaper at Bunnings…

            @bamzero: Turns out we were both wrong! The ALDI tools are Brushless!

      •  

        Ozito PXC has 2 multi tools,
        for some reason Bunnings have removed the better one from online, and reduced the price on the s*** one that I would only take if given away free.

        thats the better one with quick release : https://ozito.com.au/products/18v-multi-function-tool/

        I believe Aldi offer is much better. In my experience brushless tools have always been better ( more power, quieter and longer running) than similar brushed tools

        •  

          Ozito overall is a better deal (constant stock availabilty = easy 5yr warranty claims)

          But you're definitely right, these brushless skins are much better when comparing apples for apples.

          I don't NEED a recipro saw, but if I see this skin on clearance for $30 in a week or two it'll be an impulse buy. Then it's just an hour's job to convert to my Ozito batteries!

      The recip saw from Aldi is brushless though, so it's similar but not exactly equivalent.

      •  

        Actually you're right! Both the ALDI tools are Brushless which means there are no Ozito equivalents. Clever move ALDI!

        •  

          Would you say the Ozito one has better value per $ though? I was tempted by the brushless one from Aldi but not sure if it’s worth it, given I already have Ozito batteries and will only use the saw occasionally.

      The ALDI multi-tool and recip saw are brushless.
      Pretty sure that the Bunnings' versions are not, when I looked at the website today, which is why they are cheaper.

    these batteries are not compatible with the 80v electric mowers currently on sale at aldi, correct?

    • +1 vote

      Nope, although you could wire 4 in series to make it work if you're up to it

  •  

    how do i make 2x4ah aldi batteries fit an ozito blower that takes 2 x ozitos

    •  

      A handful of spade connectors, wire and hot glue works great if you've got a mounting method.

      I've converted the Xfinity pressure washer to work with my Ozito batteries, works brilliantly. I knocked up a slide mount out of alu cladding scrap; but thick plastic sheeting would also work well if you cut the size to be a snug fit for the battery slides.

    If you have access to a 3d printer you can turn out an adapter: https://www.stlfinder.com/3dmodels/ozito-battery-adapter-ald...
