Milwaukee® Upgrades Its Entire M18™ System with New HIGH OUTPUT™ Batteries

All M18 REDLITHIUM-ION HIGH OUTPUT batteries provide 50% more power, run 50% cooler, and offer increased run-time over standard M18 REDLITHIUM-ION batteries, all while being compatible with the entire M18 System of more than 145 tools.

“In 2005 Milwaukee® turned the power tool industry on its head when we invented the technology that enabled the use of lithium-ion in power tools. This was an achievement like the industry had never experienced before and, while many other companies have utilised this technology to deliver their own cordless systems, we’ve remained at the forefront of lithium-ion technology innovation. We’ve marked each year since with continued advancements in REDLITHIUM-ION Battery Packs – most recently the launch of our most capable battery ever, M18 REDLITHIUM-ION HIGH OUTPUT 12.0 Ah Battery in 2018. This year we mark the biggest update to M18 since the introduction of REDLITHIUM-ION as we elevate the entire M18 System through HIGH OUTPUT” – Sendi Spoljaric, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. 

M18 REDLITHIUM-ION HIGH OUTPUT batteries are engineered with the best combination of cell technology, pack construction, and electronics ever utilised before in a professional-grade battery system. This incredible stride forward in battery design delivers more power, runs cooler, and provides more run time versus M18 REDLITHIUM-ION - ultimately allowing users to experience faster application speeds and fade-free power in the whole range of M18 batteries without having to invest in an entirely new system.
