Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Louie Had three XC batteries go BAD
I have complete set ...........saw hammer drill impact. I found the standard Red Lithium (48-11-1815) holds up great...... might not last as long but is a better battery for me. I wish the XC batteries were better .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Powerless Shawn 18V XC batteries failing to recharge
Started a kitchen remodel and as I was using XC battery one of them wouldn't charge and had the red green lights blinking. Then shortly after the other battery failed! I have only owned the batteries for 14 months that came with the combo kit and I am very disapointed that they only lasted a year. I am sending my wife on a 40 mile round trip to a service center to have them replaced under warrenty. I absolutly love my cordless sawzal and circular saw but they are useless without batteries that last/work. Very costly to replace and one of the reasons I went with Milwaulkee is because of their warrenty so I hope that it works out. 3-2-12

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kurt Good at the start...
Had great power to start off with when new, ran forever (I think that the Ah rating may have been understated). However, after about 3 months use, in the same conditions as the other 4 regular (li-ion) batteries i own, it has half the life, and doesn't want to recharge, but will if left on the charger long enough, about 5 or 6 hours. The others, some of which are over a year old, have no memory and continue to run as new. I may have gotten a bad apple, but it seems suspicious to me that the only battery in 5 to have problems is that one, and brand new as well.

This is the by far the best tools you will ever use. The guys at my job ask if I have stock in Milwaukee. I made them by all the 18v tools you sell and got rid of the Dewalt. Now we are buying seconds of everything because guys are fighting over who has the cordless versus the corded.We fix the large container cranes for the largest shipping company in the world and these tools have taken alot of the effort we put in out.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Josh Not what I had hoped
Bought the drill and impact last winter, to have a total of 4 batteries. I thought that this would enable me to always have a battery ready to go. As a contractor who uses a wide variety of tools, and someone that takes care of their tools, I would bring my batteries in every night out of the cold to charge. Not even a year later, Im down to 2 batteries, 2 work(with less power and less charge capacity) and 2 that refuse to charge.
