Product Overview

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 plus Milwaukee M18 solutions. The M18 and 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.
  • REDLINK intelligence: our battery circuitry provides optimized performance and overload protection using total system communication between tool, battery and charger
  • Best-in-class construction: offers long-lasting performance and the best protection against jobsite, weather and environmental conditions

Powerful charger
The Milwaukee M18/M12 charger is small but mighty. Packs a pinch. Great for all my battery Milwaukee tools!

Dependable and Enduring
After the first charge subsequent charges seem a bit quicker even when the battery is completely empty. This is a big battery pack runs for a long time. It's hard to give a definitive time because different tools use different power.

    High Output
    Watch u-tube, there are plenty of reputable companies doing reviews on these batteries and tools. VCG Construction is one of them, Torque Test was another I watched before buying my 3/8" Milwaukee Impact. I have personally not used this battery enough to elaborate but like I stated, there is more than enough reputable companies and reviewers putting these tools and batteries through their paces and you can judge for yourself.

    Poor physical size design
    I wish they still made the 9.0 battery’s. The 9.0 was more compact and fit in my pack out much better than the 8.0 battery. Size size it sucks. Wish they would bring the 9.0 back or make this battery More narrow and short

      You just can't beat the milwaukee m18 batteries and tools
      I have been using these a while and these 5.0 batteries will get a lot of work done on a charge. I use them in a variety of tools from drills to saws to leaf blower to weed eater etc and they are work horses. I love that every one has a charge indicator - not just the higher AH batteries like some vendors. I hav e several chargers on a charging station and a variety of batteries on tap so even if I'm working the whole long day with them I'm never at a loss for power. These 5.0's are a good size for a drill or impact driver although sometimes I like the smaller ones for light jobs. But where I'm going to be doing more these is the ones I reach for. My drill is probably the most heavily used of all my milwaukee tools so I use this size battery a lot.

        Is This Normal??
        Charged 6 amp battery well. But when placed 8 amp hour, only one light stays on and the batery or charger starts to make a “Sizzling” sound. Tried several times. Same thing

          I tried the 8.0 in my blower that I usually only use a 9 or 12. I couldn't believe how long it lasted, but note it didn't have as much power as the 12. When I was done I still had 2 bars?
