If the original battery is a lithium type then you should use a manufacturer's replacement to avoid an explosion.
A tool can draw an extremely high current.
Maybe the tool has a protection circuit inside.

Probably and may be !

QED, these things can go bang, with flaming metal spewing out of them if you get it wrong.
If you are in position that you don't know, dont play,
