    I discovered the compatibility too. Bought many Xfinity tools over the years. Bought the heat gun from Autobarn, on special. And the LED worklight/floodight. It’s annoyingly bigger thane the Aldi LED light. But it’s bright enough.
    Also the home brand of the former Masters stores uses the same shape and size battery, however it is a 14v (14.4?) system. Still compatible.

    Thanks for the Tip, so if it is 20V, then it can be used on XFINITY or POWERG Tools

    Good info buddy thanks. I have mostly Xfinity stuff, used it for about 5 years now as a tradie n still going strong. No issues. Got tired of waiting for certain tools to become available so have bought a couple of PowerG, no probs at all using with Xfinity. One minor thing: One of the PowerG tools I bought actually has a third spade connector, between the other two… I researched it and found it was related to temperature – a kind of probe that will warn the tool to cut off power if the battery gets to hot. To get around this I bent it flat (you could break it off) and the battery still clips in fine all the way and tool works fine so doesn’t need that connection to run. Obviously, if you do this be aware you are circumventing a safety precaution… ie keep an eye on battery heat (or tool heat?) and swap out battery or give the tool a rest if anything is getting too warm. Perhaps that tab is only on more demanding tools or later versions? Dunno. I only came across it on the (6mm) impact driver. Also, been told they are indeed samsung cells in the Xfinity pack. Either way, some of my Xfinity battery packs are that used and abused that they split. I glued them back together and they are still going strong. Also I have a couple of PowerG charges and same same, use everything in place of each other and no hassles at all. Now to find what else is compatible out there….!! Good luck all.

    I saw the PowerG in Autohbahn catalogue once and thought the same thing they look alike, pity it didnt work with Bunnings Ozito range which I have read are made by is it Einhell? But someone does make a 3D printed part for it.

    That polisher was 119? How’s it holding up? They appear to be killing/clearing the line for gt70. PowerG is going cheap!

    Thank good sir, I missed today on the Aldi chargers and found your video. Went straight to Autobahn and got a charger for $15 bucks

    I think the workzone 20v tools are the same too?
