Answer

Yes it will, it it takes a long time and unit was very hot. I have never used it for charging after that. The u it works well to charge devices, I have never had a issue with it that way.

Does this portable power source actually need a 12v battery to work? Or can it work without one?

It requires a Milwaukee M12 battery.

What kind of plug is used for the 12V output?

All USB ports run on 5 volts. The 12 volt output on this should be the barrel jack that is also used to connect to the Milwaukee heated gear.

This is a great dual tool with multiple options. It’s great for quickly and conveniently charging the entire line of M12 batteries; no need for bulky chargers. Once your M12 battery is fully charged, the tool acts as a portable power source with endless possibilities. Then just repeat the same process. Simple as that.

The good news is that the Milwaukee M12 USB charger/power source works and is handy when you have no access to a conventional power source (i.e. an AC outlet or car USB port). The down side is that it takes an inordinate amount of time to charge an M12 battery (2+ hours for a 2.0 a/hr) or a cell phone (almost 3 hours to charge my LG v30+ from 30 - 100%). The standard M12 charger may be larger but it's way more efficient and will remain my go to charger.

I was very excited to find this product since it combines two things that I have to carry into one, a M12 battery charger and a backup USB power source (having a 12V power jack on this also adds some potential but just an added bonus for me). I ordered one right away. It arrived and all was well......for a day. The quality of the build seems fine but I'd like to see it offered without the $20 USB cable at a lower price point than $49.99. On to the problem - it worked to power my phone (and the 9V turbo feature did work with my Moto G4) to charge it to 100%. I did use the charger feature to top off one of my M12 batteries. The next day I went to show it off to a friend and it was dead as a hammer. None of the 5 M12 batteries I have would get it to work, USB, status LEDs, or charger. The charger just makes an angry buzzing noise when you plug it in with a battery installed. This product had such great promise of reducing the size of my tool kit (by getting rid of the overly large A/C charger) but it didn't work out that way for me and hopefully it didn't ruin any of my batteries in the process of testing the problem.

This M12 charger/USB power source is perfect for traveling with. The charge speed for the M12 batteries is quite a bit slower, but one huge benefit is that you don't need to lug around a full size charger if you want to travel with heated gear and M12 batteries. The charger isn't much bigger than the older heated gear adapters, and can output 5V@2.1A or even USB QuickCharge voltages of 9V@1.67A. I charged my Samsung GS4 one and a third times just using one M12 2.0Ah battery. I did discover that the time it took to charge a 2.0Ah battery completely was only 2.5 hours, as opposed to the advertised "under 3 hours." If you consider that the battery is 21.6 watt-hours, and you're charging at a USB max output rate of 10.5 watts, that's a pretty decent efficiency! If you've got a ton of M12 batteries and travel a lot, or just want to be prepared for power outages, this is a great option. If you're just looking for a power bank though, you can get one of those for much less than the premium price of this charger. Speaking of price, I'd prefer that Milwaukee would shave a bit off and sell this as a true "bare tool" option, since the current price tag also rolls up the included USB wall adapter and 3 foot cable. Both are very nice, but seriously who doesn't have one of those already?
