Milwaukee M12 3 Ah and 6 Ah battery

Winter is here and we know how cold it can get on the jobsite or just hanging out.  As you know Milwaukee has a ton of heated jackets to choose from.  While I like them all, my favorite is the Camo jackets.  Speaking of heated jackets, you have to use a Milwaukee M12 to power the jacket in order to produce heat.  We have been getting emails about when Milwaukee will be coming out with their 3Ah battery for longer run time for the jackets.  So I decided to create a post about this since the Milwaukee 3Ah battery...

Milwaukee M12 Battery and Charger Review

  Milwaukee M12 Battery and Charger The Milwaukee M12 line uses a Lithium-ion batteries and a 30 minute charger, leaving the user with little to no down time.  The Milwaukee batteries are extremely light, weighing only .6 lbs.  The charger comes with a 5 year warranty and the batteries have a two year warranty. There is a nice visible display on the charger that gives the user status on the power in the batteries. The Review When testing all of the different tools that came in Milwaukee’s M12 kit, we had no problem whatsoever getting through all of our reviews on one battery charge per project. The Milwaukee charger worked and performed well, adhering to the 30 minute time frame for a full charge.

Milwaukee V28 Lithium Ion Batteries Review

This power tool review is for the Milwaukee V28 Batteries.  These batteries are part of the Milwaukee combo kit 0928-29.  If you are looking for just the V28 battery, the model cat no is 48-11-2830. Milwaukee V28 is a Lithium Ion battery.

The first item we noticed was the weight, very light as with all Lithium batteries.  The weight of this battery is 2.43lbs, compared to the Craftsman 19.2V, which weighted 2.01lbs.  So you are getting more power and a longer run time for only a little more added weight.  We expected this, so not surprising, but it is a big factor and plus for Lithium batteries. When looking at and using the Milwaukee V28 battery, there were three key items that caught our eye that made this a great battery.  Besides the run time, durability, and power, we...
