Milwaukee® Tool, a provider of cordless power tool technology, has announced the next breakthrough for its M18™ Cordless System by extending its range of M18 REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ Batteries and introducing the first M18 and M12™ Super Charger. The new M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT XC8.0 and CP3.0 battery packs will join the company’s current HIGH OUTPUT HD12.0 and XC6.0 offerings, establishing new top-tiers of performance for the XC Extended Capacity and CP Compact battery segments. All M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT batteries provide 50% more power, run 50% cooler, and offer increased run-time over standard M18 REDLITHIUM batteries, all while being compatible with the entire M18 System of more than 175 tools.
M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT batteries are engineered with a unique combination of cell technology, pack construction, and electronics. This incredible stride forward in battery design delivers more power, runs cooler, and provides more run-time versus M18 REDLITHIUM, ultimately allowing users to experience faster application speeds and fade-free power in all three segments of M18 batteries without having to invest in an entirely new system. M18 HIGH OUTPUT batteries are also equipped with advanced charging capability, now realized with the new M18 and M12 Super Charger.
The advancements in power management not only dramatically improve how M18 HIGH OUTPUT Batteries discharge, but how they are charged as well. The M18 HIGH OUTPUT CP, XC, and HD batteries are optimized for super charge, unlocking the ability to charge at faster charge rates when paired with the new M18 and M12 Super Charger. This charger leverages Milwaukee’s REDLINK Intelligence to optimize the charge rate based on the battery type and temperature. This provides up to a four times faster charge than Milwaukee’s standard chargers, as well as the best combination of charge time and pack life. This all culminates in all HIGH OUTPUT batteries charging in one hour or less.
