The MILWAUKEE M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT XC8.0 Starter Kit provides 50% more power and runs 50% cooler vs M18™ REDLITHIUM™ CP battery packs. This increased performance results in the same power and runtime of a M18™ REDLITHIUM™ XC extended capacity battery in a lighter and more compact package. The 18-volt battery pack delivers fade-free power and runs substantially cooler through heavy applications, allowing trade professionals to push their cordless tools throughout a wide application range. The REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ XC8.0 battery is fully compatible with all 175+ Milwaukee M18™ solutions. The M18™ & M12™ Multi-Voltage Charger accepts all M18™ and M12™ batteries, so you’ll always be prepared and productive, especially on jobs that require a mix of M12 and M18 Milwaukee cordless power tools. The charger communicates directly with the battery pack to monitor cell voltage, temperature and charge status to ensure a full charge. As an added level of communication, the charger indicates when the lithium-ion battery reaches an 80% charge, providing confidence that the battery can complete a substantial amount of work without waiting for a full charge.

M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion HIGH OUTPUT Starter Kit W/ XC 8.0Ah Battery & Rapid Charger is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This M18 18-Volt HIGH OUTPUT XC 8.0 Ah Battery is a great addition to my M18 tools. I have been extremely happy with all of my Milwaukee M18 tools. I have two XC 5.0 Ah and two XC 6.0 Ah batteries, and needed one with a bit more run-time. I haven’t yet had any projects that would use enough power to run it down, so I can’t say just how much better it is, but Milwaukee claims that this one provides 60% more run-time than an M18 XC 5.0 battery, so this is a welcome addition for those jobs that require more power and longer use of some tools. Though I didn’t time it, the first-time full charged pretty quickly (less than 1 hr.) using the Rapid Charger. This XC 8.0 is very close to the same size and weight of the XC 6.0, so I don’t even notice any difference in handling. While some other manufacturers are going to higher voltages, Milwaukee just keeps making the M18 batteries better, without the need for more voltage, plus we don’t have to replace our tools. These work with the entire line of over 175 M18 tools. Gotta love it.

I got this new battery and charger so that I have an extra battery for all of my Milwaukee M18 tools. I am especially interested in the new "rapid" charger. If you are working your tools hard it is a really nice thing if you can get a weak battery to recharge before you have used up the one that is in the tool. That way you never have to wait. This new charger seems to charge quite a bit faster than the old M18 charger. I don't really have a way to quantify the difference but Milwaukee says it is 40% faster. So far I have not been able to run down the battery in a tool before the battery on the charger is ready. One thing I like is that I am used to using the old M18 charger and this charger looks and operates the same. It is nice that you don't have to get used to a new system. I don't have any M12 tools or batteries so I can't really address that aspect of the charger.

I own a few Milwaukee M18-platform tools and I was in need of an additional battery to power my tools. My 2-amp hour battery now has a helper – this RedLithium high output XC8.0 battery pack. These HO batteries, AKA high output, are great because they output 50% more power and run 50% cooler than regular XC battery packs. The on-board battery level gauge is super handy because I now know how much longer I can go before I have to charge it. I own a quick charger, so the time it takes to charge these is minimal. Now, I can get so much more work done and not have to worry about running out of juice. Since I own assorted M18 products, this battery can fit all of them, because the M18 platform is the same. Here in the Northeast, winter temps hit zero degrees often, and these tools can run in the cold with no issue. There is no excuse to NOT get the work done now…

If you have bought a Milwaukee M18 bare tool with no battery or charger then you need a starter kit like this one. It gets you an M18 High Output 8 Amp Hour lithium ion battery and the rapid charger that charges both the M18 batteries as well as the M12 batteries. This 8 AH battery is large and heavy but will provide power for much longer periods than the smaller M18 batteries. I can tell you that you won't want to use this in any tool that you need reach up above your shoulders to use. However if you use it in stationary or tools that don't require a lot of reaching or lifting then it will last, last and last all day long. I weighed and measured my other M18 batteries and they are M18 CP 2.0 AH, 3.1 x 4.6 x 2.18 in., 15.2 oz., M18 XC 5.0 AH, 3.1 x 4.6 x 2.95 in., 1 Lb. 9.7oz., (this battery) M18 XC 8.0, 3.4 x 5.44 x 3.24 in., 2 Lb. 6.3 oz. I recommend this starter kit with the High Capacity M18 8.0 AH battery if you understand that it weighs quite a bit and may not be suitable for tools that require you to work at shoulder level or higher.

The Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion HIGH OUTPUT XC 8.0Ah Battery seems a step up from my M18 18-volt 9.0Ah HD (High Demand) batteries. A few ounces lighter and 20% smaller, it carries my Milwaukee M18V tool loads for the same continuous duration, while offering M18 portable power in a lighter, smaller package! With the standard Milwaukee charger, this 8.0Ah HD battery also provides shorter recharge times than the 9.0...Nice. Overall, All of my M18 Lithium-Ion batteries (XC, HD, HO in 5.0-6.0-9.0-12.0) still perform flawlessly!!

This battery is everything you would expect from Milwaukee tool. Same size as their 6.0AH but with much more power and life. Add the new "quick charge" M12 and M18 charger and life gets simpler. I put this M18 8.0AH out of the box and into the charger. The battery power light indicated it was low. It took one hour to charge to !00%. Actually 1 hour and 5 minutes. I have a shop full of Milwaukee tools and I couldn't be happier with their products.

If you are on the Milwaukee M18 platform these High Output batteries are a requirement. These batteries will give you the start-up you get from HD batteries we have all become accustom to. The real advantage comes when you experience the high output. As the day goes on and the batteries get heavier you now have an option to those tired muscles. the weight of the 8AH takes some of that beating the 12ah you normally use by the end of the day. The real surprise came when you go to recharge the batteries you'll find the high capacity batteries need the high capacity chargers that come in the kit. we now need check the package to verify which charger your new batteries need.

Having several 18 volt batteries, I thought this would be a good addition to my tools. I think this battery will be my go to battery. It has great power and it lasts quiet a while, depending on what you are using it on. My Skill Saw cutting 2x12 takes a toll on it but it still lasts longer than my standard battery. When drilling the battery lasts a LLLOOONNNGG time. I like the quick charge feature of the charger and it takes less time to recharge the battery than the conventional charger. I like the set very much and am thinking about getting a longer lasting battery for powering all my Milwaukee tools.
