Already own a mitre10 jobmate 18v drill/driver and a impact driver and find them good value for little cost.  But my question is does anyone know if the supercheap auto 18v system is compatable as they look like clones, just different colours.   As supercheap has a lot bigger range of 18v tools and may be compatable with my batterys and chargers.

Sorry, don't know.


You could take your Jobmate drill and battery and see if they work with the Toolpro ones? SCA might not let you do this.


Even if they are from the same source, there may be slight changes made to make them incompatible, eg battery terminal locations moved slightly or even polarity reversed.


If they do interchange, I would still recommend that you charge the batteries with their original chargers.

Have no say on Jobmate or the one from Supercheap.


but have more on Milwaukee, Hitachi & Makita.


Milwaukee have proven to be the best, but pricey.

just for reference the toolpro skins do seem to work with the jobmate batterys,  brought a 1/2" impact wrench (rattle gun) from supercheap and works fine with my existing mitre 10 jobmate stuff.  This is really budget gear but for the price and I use them in a workplace enviroment every day.  but only good for "lighter duty" than air tools.  I know the milwaukee and like would be a better replacement for air tools.  just budget constraints
