Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by New design are much better First got my tools with 4 of the old style batteries (No "M12" in a white box on cover). One died almost right away. Used the old drain it and recharge trick which worked for a while. I notice others have used this with some success too. Unfortunately all the other batteries died same death within 1 year of modest use. Received a new tool with the new battery style (Says M12 in a white box on cover) have purchased a few more since. All are working fine with no sign of trouble well after a year. DO NOT BUY old style batteries. Milwaukee should stand behind their products and issue a recall !!!!! I'd give zero stars but new style of battery seems to be ok. April 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Longer run time and re-charges fast I have been using it with M12 drill and Hackzall saw for all sorts of home projects. It certainly gives more run time and re-charges a lot faster but not really sure if it provides some extra speed and torque. February 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight, LONG LASTING I have three of these 12 volt batteries, one LED work light, one 3/8 impact tool and one 1/4 impact tool. The work light is the high consumer so far. The 3/8 impact tool is IMPRESSIVE at how great it works and how little power it uses. Yes its brushless (fuel). The 1/4 impact tool has proven itself more times in removing LONG screws. It has brushes in the motor, but still does a great job with little power consumption. The work light is fantastic. The batteries charge quickly, and will put up with anything I throw at them when using any of the three tools. Milwaukee has a HOME RUN with these products and of course the batteries. June 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by using this battery in the Milwaukee 3/8" cordless ratchet I use the tool almost every day, and amazing enough I haven't had to charge this battery yet!. It's Lithium so I CAN charge it whenever I want, since it won't develop 'memory' like NiCad batteries always do. Having other lithuim tools, I also know it will maintain full power the entire time it's used, until it suddenly fails to work. Just needs a charge. Or swap in another battery. June 3, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Milwaukee 48-11-2401 12-Volt Li-Ion Battery Failure Fix 1) Value of driver is 4 stars. 2) Value of batteries is 2 stars. I purchased the driver & after about 2 yrs of occasional use (~100 hrs), both batteries failed to charge within 30 days of one another. I googled '48-11-2401 Reviews' and found one very useful. The owner had the very same problem & was able to fix it without buying new batteries. He had a kit that included a flashlight. He used the flashlight to drain the battery. He then plugged the battery into the charger & it recharged as normal. I gave it a try by putting a low battery in the driver & using a twist tie on the trigger to keep it running. After switching itself off, I plugged the battery into the charger and it charged as normal. I am happy to report the both batteries have taken 2 full charges each since [2+ mos ago] and I have not yet had to shell out $70-$80 for 2 new batteries. Had the battery recovery not worked, I'd probably trash the Milwaukee driver and returned to my dependable corded drill. January 15, 2012
