    Q:I asked a similar question previously and I believe my meaning was misunderstood. Obviously a 4.0 Ah battery will have twice the energy storage capacity of a 2.0 Ah battery. I'm interested in knowing if the XC batteries can discharge more electrical current at a higher rate than the compact batteries, resulting in a higher maximum power achieved for the tool using it. This should be possible because the XC batteries have more individual cells connected in parallel, and therefore can safely discharge current at a higher rate without overheating. So if I buy a Milwaukee tool like the new M12 Circular saw and only have M12 2.0 Ah compact batteries, will the torque and power output be less than if I bought an M12 4.0 Ah XC battery? If this is the case, are the electronics regulating current draw located in the tool or in the battery? Are there certain M12 tools that utilize this capability, and some that don't? Sorry for writing an essay with multiple questions, but all these factors can impact my buying decisions and how I'll use my tools, and I can't find a definitive answer anywhere.

    A:  The XC battery does not allow for tools to operate at higher torque. The tool will operate at it's maximum torque no matter which battery is being used. The XC battery allows for you to use the tool longer as your battery has a higher capacity.

        A:  I tested this 4 Ah battery vs. the 1.5 Ah battery, and the answer appears to be YES. Tools I used were the M12 FUEL circular saw, and the M12 FUEL 1/4" impact driver. You can see more details in my review and attached video.

          Q:I've heard that the XC batteries can supply more power to Milwaukee cordless tools because they have more cells that can discharge in parallel. Is this true, or is it something someone made up? It seems to be possible in theory, but I wanted to know if the Milwaukee tools are sophisticated enough to recognize the battery type and take advantage of the extra power output available.

          A:  Yes, the two sets of cells in parallel allow for more current to discharge without the battery heating up as quickly. The M12 and M18 FUEL lines of tools all take advantage of this design feature for increased performance.

          by|May 4, 2023

          A:  Yes, this is true. This 4.0ah M12 battery will provide more run time to your M12 cordless tool!
