If you are looking at these you already know the Milwaukee battery driven tools are well made tools. These are a nice addition especially for things you typically hold in one hand like the impact driver or drill. And that is exactly what I got them for. Like the rest of the M18 line they charge very fast and hold a charge well. The very low profile is nice and the lower weight is very nice when you are going to be using the tool for an extended time since that can be tiring. And less fatigue means better tool control. Seems when I get tired that is when I hose things up every time. One thing I did run into is that these are just slightly wider than some of the other M18 batteries I have. As a result I had to bend the belt hanger slightly outward on the impact driver and drill to make these fit. But that was a simple task and worth it to make them work. You could remove the belt hanger but I find it handy to this worked for me.

Pros Light Weight, long lasting, low profile Cons slightly wider than others

This Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion High Output (HO) Battery Pack 12.0Ah is a powerhouse! Providing at least 33% more run-time than the M18 9.0Ah RedLithium's I have, it only weights 6 ounces more and has just an extra 3\8" in height. The recharge times seem to be no longer than the smaller XD 9.0Ah packs, but it certainly delivers longer run times! Although this industry-leading cordless power tool 12.0Ah M18 pack can run all of the Milwaukee 18V cordless tools, it should really shine on current draw capacity and longer run times of their bigger portable tools, providing the power of their heavy-duty corded tools!

Pros Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy

  • Been waiting for these!
  • May 06, 2019

Used with the Surge impact and an 18in. extension. Ran down about 400 Tapcons with one bar left on the battery. A nice compromise between the 2.0 and 5.0 battery.

Milwaukee keeps hitting home runs with the Fuel cordless, and this battery just did a grand slam. Fits perfectly on my Gen3 hammer drill and Impact set. Charges fast with the stock charger and the look is well designed as if it was designed before the Gen3 set was released. I have 2 of the 2804-20 hammer drills and you can definitely feel the difference between this CP3.0 and the XC 3.0 when driving in a 4" lag bolt. Great battery!

I compared this new XC 6.0Ah High Output battery to one of my trusty XC 5.0 batteries. The XC6.0 at 2 lbs 6 oz weighs 13 ounces more than the XC 5.0. The XC 6.0 is 1" longer and 1/2" taller than the XC 5.0. I tested both in my 2630-20 6.5" circular saw. I was able to complete cuts in 2" x 10" material 50% faster with the XC 6.0 than with the XC 5.0, using the same amount of forward pressure on the saw with each. You'll have to decide for yourself what a 50% productivity increase is worth when sawing or grinding or doing other high power requirement jobs, but for me it's a no-brainer. I didn't compare how long the battery lasted. The XC 6.0 is rated at 108 watt-hours vs 90 for the XC 5.0, so as well as having 50% more power it should last longer on the job too. An instruction sheet was included with general M18 battery instructions, but there was no specific information about the XC 6.0 battery.

Pros Durable, Long-Lasting, Strong

I bought this battery the other day not really sure if I wanted it but I am glad I did. I used it in my 7 1/4 circular saw that came with the 9.0 battery and this saw DOES have noticeable more power it's not the fastest but now doesn't bog down while ripping 2x12 for making stakes. I would recommend this to anyone who uses these tools for heavy use.

This is a 2-pack of Milwaukee’s 6.0Ah high-output batteries. These make a great alternative to a single 12.0Ah battery if you’re looking for a lighter weight battery (two of these are the same price as one 12.0Ah battery and both batteries are designated as High-Output by Milwaukee). HO batteries use the newer 21700 Li cells and have more power and run cooler than non HO batteries, which use the older 18650 Li cells. I tested the batteries in several of my M18 tools, including a 2902 hammer drill, 2720 Sawzall, and 2730 circular saw. In every case the tools performed extremely well, meaning they exhibited a lot of power under load, and because of the battery’s weight, the tools were easier to handle than they were with the 12.0Ah battery installed. I also compared a “regular” 5.0Ah battery and the 6.0Ah HO battery using my Milwaukee 2902-20 hammer drill and a 1” auger bit (see Photos). I noted the temperature of each battery (using an IR thermometer) before and after drilling 20 holes in a pressure treated 4x6. While not a completely scientific comparison, I did note that the temperate after drilling was three degrees cooler with the 6.0 battery (72 versus 75 degrees, starting temperature for both was 60 degrees). When done, the 5.0 battery only lit 3 LEDs in its fuel gauge and the 6.0 battery still had 4 LEDs. I can’t draw too much of a conclusion from the temperatures (I think I would need to make many more holes to really compare them), but the runtime would be very impressive for the HO battery. So, if you’re using Milwaukee’s high-demand power tools, you may want to look into the 6.0Ah batteries for easier handling than the 12.0Ah battery (of course, for the stationary tools, like the miter and table saws, the 12.0 would be just fine).

Pros Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting

I got a chance to check out the new high output Milwaukee M18 compact 3 a/h batteries. I got the 2 battery pack kit, model 48-11-1837; no charger is included in this kit, just the two batteries. The batteries came with a minimal charge on them; you’ll need to plan on charging them up before starting on your project. There’s a ‘battery gauge’ on the front of each battery (see photo below) that gives a reasonable estimate of power remaining. Fit and finish is excellent and there’s a rubberized bottom on each battery so if you unintentionally set a tool down on a coffee table or piano or some such you are less likely to mar the surface. Milwaukee claims that the new compact high output will deliver 50% more power than previous versions. I can’t do a direct comparison because I have no other 3 amp hour Milwaukee batteries. I can attest, however, that these new cells are light (see photo below) compared to 5 a/h XC Milwaukee batteries and work well in my hammer drill and Milwaukee bit driver. There are a number of web videos showing that the new 3 a/h cells are right up there in performance with the 5 a/h XC batteries. Pro trades will, of course, have their own take on the new setup. As a typical DIY’er, though, I’ve traditionally had 5 a/h batteries in my drill and driver, ready to grab when needed. I’ve pulled the 5 a/h batteries out in favor of the new, lighter 3 a/h high power units, I like them that much. Battery technology keeps advancing, and these new Milwaukee 3 a/h batteries seem to work as advertised. The batteries come with a 2 year warranty from Milwaukee and, of course, the 90 day return policy from Home Depot. HTH Regards, Jim
