    What about the other way around? My 12V NiMH power packs died fast and 14.4 replacements are much cheaper. Will it kill the tool? Its almost cheaper to scrap the driver for a new on based on battery cost.

    You can’t use a higher voltage on a lower voltage tool. It only works with lower voltage batteries on a higher voltage tool. Sorry.
