I think you could probably
use them if they would fit, but I would expect that 
manufacturers would make
the ends a bit different so one voltage system wouldn't 
interchange with
another voltage system.

You could always buy another battery on ebay, or take
apart your dead one and 
buy new cells at radioshack or wherever.  I have a
cordless shaver and cordless 
trimmer that both are pretty old.  I've replaced
batteries in each one by taking 
out the old battery and matching it up at
radioshack, then soldering in the new 

I have a new Ridgid 18V drill w/
LiIon batteries.  The original batteries are 
worthless.  I've thought about
opening them up and rebuilding them, but I'll 
probably mail them back to
Ridgid along with a complaint letter and hope they 
will send me new ones.

I've got a Crapsman cordless drill  18 volt.
