Milwaukee Tool extended its range of M18 RedLithium High Output batteries by introducing the first M18 & M12 Super Charger.

The M18 Red Lithium High Output XC8.0 and CP3.0 battery packs will join the company’s current High Output HD12.0 and XC6.0 offerings. All M18 RedLithium High Output batteries provide 50 percent more power, run 50 percent cooler and offer increased runtime over standard M18 RedLithium batteries, Milwaukee Tool said. The packs are compatible with the M18 system of more than 175 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,” said Babacar Diop, product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “This was an achievement like the industry had never experienced before and, while many other companies have utilized this technology to deliver their own cordless systems, we’ve remained at the forefront of lithium-ion technology innovation.”

The RedLithium High Output batteries allow users to experience faster application speeds and fade-free power in all three segments of M18 batteries (CP, XC, and HD) without having to invest in an entirely new system.

According to Milwaukee the High Output batteries have been upgraded in three key ways:

  • An increased number of cells from 18,650 cells in RedLithium batteries to 21,700 cells;
  • The power delivery system and communication in the pack electronics; and
  • The pack construction.

Additionally, the M18 & M12 Super Charger leverages Milwaukee’s RedLink Intelligence to optimize the charge rate based on the battery type and temperature, providing a charge by up to four times faster than Milwaukee’s standard chargers, according to the company. This results in the High Output batteries charging in one hour or less.
