The tools last forever. The batterys disappoint, they do not last, are hard to find and expensive.

Obviously Milwaukee brand relates to quality and my v18 cordless set is just that, well built to last for a long time , just as any contractor would expect from quality brand. However as for the batteries..... thats another story. An absolute let down in real term. I can barely cut through half a dozen nails in dismanteling pallets and battery is dead . Surely a reputable company like milwaukee must take responsibility by providing more affordable batteries to people with older sets, rather than ripping us off with over $100 for a single battery, where as a similar m18 battery costs almost half that. Are we being punished twice? Sadly no more milwaukee for me again.

Using w/ Jobsite Radio (49-24-0280)
Unlike review written on 20 Sept 2011 by Preskitaz I have had NO problem using these V-18 3.0 Ah Li-ion batteries (48-11-1830) in my Job Site Radio - Powered by Rockford Fosgate (49-24-0280). Yes, the V-18s are larger in height - actually by 1/2" rather than the 3/8" that Preskitaz states. But they slide right in without a problem and the door latches. They run the radio longer too. They seem to take as long to charge. However, they run longer in my tools, hold their charge on the shelf longer (meaning slower to self-discharge), are quite a bit lighter (approx 25% - 29 vs 39 ounces) in weight, and I LOVE that they have a "fuel gauge" (charge status) on them!
NOTE: The Milwaukee number I list is right off the bottom of my batteries. I believe the number (48-11-1803) HD put in the Product Title above is a typo. The last four digits should be -1830. They do show the correct number at the bottom of the Specifications Table under the Specs tab. If you have the older 2.4 Ah Milwaukee NiCad batteries (48-11-2230), be sure to replace them with these Li-ion batteries - they are GREAT!

Bought 2 of these to replace 2 older ones. I haven't had much time to use them but I hope they are better than the originals that seemed to fail prematurely and would also trip out under load of the sawzall and circular saw.
My only other option was to throw out a bag full of perfectly good tools or buy the old NiCads.
The cost on these is way too high.

Milwaukee has discontinued the V-18 Lithium Ion battery but if you, like me, have a perfectly good V-18 tool, you will need these batteries. So I appreciate Home Depot making them available. However, these batteries have a problem in that if they fall below 3 V the charger doesn't see them. So you need to keep them charged or press a 9 V battery to the contacts to lift the V-18 battery to where the charger will charge it. Another solution is to buy a V-18 compatible Milwaukee flashlight, use the flashlight occasionally and keep the V-18 batteries charged. Milwaukee figured you would be using these batteries on the job all week thus keeping the batteries charged. But if you don't use the batteries very often you have to know about the above listed workarounds. This is why I rated this otherwise excellent battery down.

It's sad I have a slightly older Milwaukee set includes flash light saws all hammer drill and drill driver, all the batteries are toast Milwaukee charges $119 just for one old style battery , I looked at the new drills and drivers and the batteries no longer connect in the same way forcing you to have old batteries rebuilt or pay $119 per old style that will not work in any of the new tools, they should have done a recall on the old tools and batteries or NOT CHANGE the style of the connector thanks allot Milwaukee I used to be a big fan... do whats right offer a trade in value or recall of the V-18 style batteries and tools! or atleast make batter cost normal!
