    Q:My Milwaukee heated hoodie arrived with a 2.0 battery. Is the 3.0 battery about the same size and weight and will it be ok to use?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Curious. Thank you for shopping at The Home Depot. According to Milwaukee, the M12 2.0Ah and the 3.0Ah will both work with the Milwaukee M12 vest. The 3.0 will last a bit longer than the 2.0 and the length of time depends on the heat setting you chose. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

              A:  The 3.0 gave my lantern more power and run time. This comes in handy when you know that you will be running the lantern for awhile.

                A:  3.0 is more amps. So the 3.0 will give you longer one times and I will suggest the 6.0 which gives you much longer.

                A:  2 is two amp hour and 3 is three amp hours. The larger the number, the longer they last. The larger the number, the more expensive they are too!

                A:  You can use any and all M12 batteries. When you get to the bigger (I think 3.0 batteries) they are physically bigger and have a bigger foot.

                A:  Go aa large as they make that battery on that shape. You don't want to use the square batteries unless you plan on standing. You won't be able to drive or sit with the square battery in your jacket.

                      A:  the battery was sent to store, instead of home, so drove two hours to pick it up. Would not hold charge. Drove again to get another battery. Would also not hold charge. After numerous calls to Home Depot and Milwaukee, finally sent battery pack back to Milwaukee. They tested it and sent a different one.

                        Q:I received the jacket & this battery (purchased separately) today for a Christmas gift. The jacket-only box says "does not include battery or charging cord". The battery looks like it is ONLY the battery. Do I need to buy a charging cord also? Thanks!

                        A:  Cord is part of the jacket but you need to purchase a compact battery charger power source Milwaukee #48-59-1201

                            A:  There should be a wire attached to the jacket. That wire will plug into the battery power source outlet. The battery plugs into it also. You will need the kit if you do not already have one.

                              A:  This battery is charged by any M12 Milwaukee charger. Yes the charger is a separate unit. It should have been with the jacket. Mine was. Pull the red part away from the black part. It is easily assumed the battery is all one piece. It is not. Once you do that, you will see where the charger and the battery unite.

                              by|Dec 20, 2023

                              A:  Yes, you need to purchase the charger that the battery charges in. Usually when you purchase the coat/jacket everything is included with the purchase. Just make sure the charger is for the m12 battery.
