Customer Questions & Answers

what is the difference between the 4amp and 5 amp battery

Asked by: DS
Battery life only, I own both and noticed no physical difference in size, just slightly longer run time...

i have a 2.0 battery,can i use a 5.0 or 4.0 on my drill?

Asked by: roxie
Yes try the 4.0Ah and 5.0Ah batteries, they will last longer between charges. You will be happy with the extra battery life. The only down side might be, the drill might not fit in as tight of spaces due to the inch longer larger battery...

So if I bought the Milwaukee Radio, I HAVE to purchase these 2 items ($149!!) if my BF wants it cordless??? WOW!!! Maybe they should include a Coupon for a Discount... Geeeeezzzzzz..... The Radio was $99 !! Not like he's a DJ.... LoL
Asked by: Mari
You can get smaller capacity batteries, but these would carry a radio for a good while. I use a iPod with ear buds for tunes.

Regular charger or Rapid charger?

Does this come with the regular m12/m18 multi-voltage charger (48-59-1812) or the m12/m18 rapid-charger (48-59-1808)?
Asked by: BG
This one is pretty quick compared with my older Milwaukee 18v charger. We're talking minutes not 1/2 hours.

M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion 5.0Ah Starter Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Having just received one of the newest Milwaukee Searchlights which came as a ""tool only"" item I ... Having just received one of the newest Milwaukee Searchlights which came as a "tool only" item I was in need of both a M18 Battery and appropriate Milwaukee M18 lithium-Ion charging station. Got this Milwaukee Starter kit which addressed both my shortfalls. Battery is a 5.0Amp variety which is more than sufficient for my new searchlight. The charging station not only recharges M18 batteries but also the M12 battery series of Milwaukee tools. Could not be any happier especially knowing this is a fresh battery and not some earlier battery hanging on the shelf for a year or more. Its been quite some time since I've acquired rechargeable tools and I've had all the various brands and technologies varying from the earliest Ni-Cad batteries to Nickel Metal Hydride. Lithium-Ion is the current technology and impressive. Heavier in weight per battery pack however run times are a minimum 5 times longer (probably more). If you are in the market for a replacement rechargeable tool you should seriously consider Milwaukee....solidly made, decent warranty, and really nice to own and use.

This Milwaukee 18v. high intensity work light is high quality - the best I have ever seen or used. I am a big DeWalt Tools user/owner, but DeWalt's portable work lights leave much to be desired. Their 18v. Florescent light is basically useless, and eats up battery power like crazy. Their newer 18v-20v. LED AC/DC product is bulky, not very utilitarian, and is more restricted in placement and positioning. This Milwaukee light can be placed or hung in a variety of vertical or horizontal positions (especially because of its Hexagonal shape), and the two brightness settings are excellent. If there is one criticism it would be that: To initial buy the Light, a Battery and the Charger unit you have $200 wrapped up - and of course you need/want a least 1-2 extra battery(s) which are an additional $67 each. Boom with (2) extra batteries - a total of (3) - you now have a minimum of some $335 invested in a portable work light system! That is a lot of money to invest in a battery operated work light. However, the quality of build and operation of this particular product is very high, and it works great. So is it over-priced... perhaps yes/no, but I sure like this product.

The charger is pretty quick and compact. I have used battery powered tools since the beginning, back in the late 70's with the 7.2 and 9 volt stuff. These lithium powered tools reduce the need for power cords. I can keep an assortment of tools, a couple of batteries and a charger in a small tool box on the truck to handle most jobs.

I bought the 5.0Ah battery to replace a 2.0Ah battery that came with a drill bought at Christmas time. I own three 4.0Ah batteries, and one 9.0Ah battery. I have experienced no problems with Milwaukee products so far. The recent battery purchase will fit in nicely with his other brothers.

It also has a station for charging the smaller lithium batteries as well, so only need one charger station for both types of tools. The battery itself also has a charge indicator so you can get a visual indication of the charge left.

Recently learned they now have a 9AH battery for their big tools like the grinder, recrip saw, and hogger drill. gonna get one soon... The battery meter on board is super amazing, takes the bad surprises out of the day.
