What batteries are compatible with Worx? That's a question that many people have been asking themselves lately. The good news is that there are plenty of options for you to choose from. In this blog post, we will detail and examine the different types of batteries and what they're compatible with so you can find the one that works best for your needs.

What batteries work with Worx?

The Worx is a famous line of cordless power tools that have been on the market for over 20 years. These products are made and designed to make life easier, and they do an excellent job at it. For Worx tools to work at their best and most efficiently, it is important to use the correct type of battery. These batteries are designed to provide optimal power for Worx products. Here are some of the most popular batteries that are compatible with some Worx tools.

Worx 20V Max Lithium-Ion Battery

This battery is compatible with a range of Worx tools that work at 20 volts. Some examples include the WG255, WG258, and WG291 hedge trimmers, as well as chainsaws. In general, this battery is compatible with all 20-volt Worx cordless power tools.

The Lithium-Ion Battery for the Worx GT Li-ion Trimmer/Edger

This battery will work with a wide range of Worx products that are 18 volts or higher, including the WG163, WG164, and WG165 string trimmers. It is ideal for the Worx GT lawnmower.

What other battery brands that can you use for your Worx tools?

What if the recommended battery for your Worx tool is not available? In that case, you may use a standard battery from another company at your own risk, as this is not a recommended usage. Worx batteries just have a longer run time and are made specifically for the tools they make, so using an off-brand battery may cause damage to your tool or shorten its life span. There may be batteries that will work with Worx tools but might not produce the same performance as the recommended batteries. The one good news is that the majority of cordless power tool brands are compatible with one another's batteries, so it may be possible to find something suitable for your needs.

The following were tried and tested by some and found to fit into Worx tools.

Shentec's 3.0Ah Lithium-ion battery is a perfect replacement for the Worx WA3520, WG151s, and many other cordless tools from Lithium 20V batteries.

The Li-ion 20V 5000mAh battery by Exmate works with Worx WA3551.1. This battery has been designed with high performance in mind, providing homeowners enough juice on hand when their appliances start running low.

Guild 18V 1.5AH Li-ion battery is another great replacement for the Worx drill. This battery offers a longer lifespan and better performance than any other Lithium-ion battery, giving you more value for your money.

JCB 20V Lithium-ion battery pack is also suitable for Worx drill. This battery has been designed to provide the best performance and protect your devices from damage caused by overcharging or discharging.

Is it safe to use a different brand of battery for your Worx tools?

The answer to this question is going to vary depending on what kind of battery you're trying to install in your Worx tool. It is safe to use a different brand of battery for your Worx tools if it's recommended by the manufacturer. As long as the voltage is right and the size of the battery is compatible with your tool, then that might do the job. It's also worth noting that some manufacturers offer alternative battery sizes if they don't have one that fits your specific model. 


Your cordless power tools are your investment and would require regular maintenance to work at peak performance. Whether you're using them for personal or professional use, it's important to keep your power tools clean and stored in a proper place. If you plan on storing your power tools for an extended period of time, it's essential that you unplug the battery from the power tool. While it might be common sense to most people, you should remember that batteries are sensitive in nature and require special attention when not in use.

The power tool is not an indestructible object. It will wear down over time, all parts of the machine will need to be replaced at some point. Keeping up with all the different batteries that are compatible with your Worx tools is a bit challenging. It's always best to use the battery type that is recommended for your tools. That way, you know it will work right out of the box, and there won't be any issues with compatibility.
