Will this battery replace the older 18 volt 2.4Ah NiCad battery pack?

This question is from V18 Lithium-Ion Battery for Select Milwaukee V18 Tools

I have a complete set of the older Milwaukee 18 Volt NiCad powered cordless tools however the NiCad batteries don't last very long both in power and longevity. I love the tools but need to know if there is a lithium-lon 18 volt battery that will fit them on the market from Milwaukee. Also if available what charger is needed to charge. Thanks.

yes as long as it says V-18 and not M-18V (M is new style) I read on this blog the newer V-18 doesn't fit in one of the Boom box radios ?

Answer: 
Yes, this battery is inter-changeable with the older 18 volt NiCad batteries.
The charger for these batteries can be used for the older NiCad batteries as well as the Lithium Ion battery but, I don't believe the older charger can be used for the Lithium Ion batteries.

It REQUIRES A DIFFERENT charger than the one that came with your NiCad batteries. The charger that charges the V18 battery will also charge your older, 18v NiCad (PowerPlus) batteries.

Went into store and purchased Charger Cat. No. 48-59-0255. The employee told me that it worked on all that slide onto tool. I do not believe that to be true because mine does not seem to fit correctly. I would like to be certain before heading back into store.

Answer: 
48-59-0255 is for NiCad only and will not fit the Li-Ion - will not slide all the way down.
48-59-2818 is what I have and works on both NICad and Li-Ion "V" style for old tools. This is not for the newer "M" style batteries.

Return that charger - and BE SURE to let management know that employee is puting out BAD/Incorrect info to customers.
Your charger (48-59-0255) is ONLY for charging the Milwaukee Power-Plus 9.6 to 18 volt NiCd/NiMH battery packs - NOT the newer slide-in Li-ion (V-Series) batteries. Even though the Li-ion battery is backward compatible into your older Power-Plus tools, it is NOT to be charged in the Read More
Return that charger - and BE SURE to let management know that employee is puting out BAD/Incorrect info to customers.
Your charger (48-59-0255) is ONLY for charging the Milwaukee Power-Plus 9.6 to 18 volt NiCd/NiMH battery packs - NOT the newer slide-in Li-ion (V-Series) batteries. Even though the Li-ion battery is backward compatible into your older Power-Plus tools, it is NOT to be charged in the Power-Plus chargers!
If you have acquired the Milwaukee V-18 Li-ion batteries (which will work in your older Power-Plus tools), you will need to get the Milwaukee charger labeled as Model #48-59-2818 to charge them. This charger is compatible with/will charge Milwaukee 18 volt Li-ion (V-18) AND 18 volt NiCd (Power-Plus) battery packs as well as the 28 volt Li-ion (V-28) batteries.
NOTE: NEITHER of the above chargers are compatible with the NEWEST Milwaukee battery packs. Those batteries are labeled as the M-18 Series and they will not slide in to the above discussed chargers - nor will the batteries mentioned above slide into the M-18 chargers.
I hope I have answered your question/concerns. Please be sure to "educate" the Store Manager. Read Less

I have a fairly new drill that I haven't used in a few years, the batteries are not taking a charge now. I would like to start using this drill again, but don't want to pay more for 2 new batteries than a whole new drill combo kit would cost. Is there an alternative to these batteries?

This was on my Christmas list to maybe get a new tool and use the batterie in all tools but No! that is not going to happen!
hope this helps there is a bunch of us that sure would like to see Milwaukee, lower the price of old style batteries , because we feel a little burned!

Why do you list the Milwaukee Li-Ion battery 48-11-1830 as 48-11-1803? You do not list the amps either?

I have ordered the battery pac from you. Order # W287342804. It should be listed as a 48-11-1830 (Milwaukee Part no.). But you listed it as a 48-11-1803. Every place you show the part no# you list the wrong number. Why? You don't list the amps or the warranty of the battery. I have been a long time customer with an account with home depot. I hope I get the correct battery. There is no Milwaukee part 48-11-1803 listed with them.

Please e-mail me your answer!!!!!.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Milwaukee tools The tools last forever. The batterys disappoint, they do not last, are hard to find and expensive. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst batteries. total junk. got 4 batteries and two charges when all my nicad batteries failed. This batteries never held a charge. would go dead over the weekend. total junk April 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by needed two battery my batteries died needed two batteries so I bought two wish they were cheaper to buy to much money for them 109.00 apiece but they work find January 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by v18 batteries 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. August 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Using w/ Jobsite Radio (49-24-0280) 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! December 6, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Only time will tell. 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. October 13, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Milwaukee V18 tools 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. May 26, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by v-18 batteries 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!
