About Milwaukee M18 Series Tools

Launched in 2008, the M18 series from Milwaukee balances power and ergonomics. M18 tools pack the best-in-class, heavy-duty performance that you expect from Milwaukee into lighter, more compact bodies than those of traditional tools. This translates to improved versatility on the jobsite and reduced user fatigue at the end of the workday.

M18 Compact & Lightweight Lithium-Ion Batteries

M18 Lithium-Ion Power
Reliable, long-lasting LITHIUM-ION power is just one part of a full feature set.
Cordless power frees you from the hassle of extension cords, but a cordless tool is only as reliable as its battery–that’s where Milwaukee’s M18 XC High-Capacity Lithium-Ion batteries come in. Engineered to deliver torque, speed, and extended runtime, these batteries make use of Milwaukee’s trademarked Digital Power Management technology to ensure long battery life. Additionally, overload protection, a temperature management system, and individual cell voltage monitoring guard your battery and your tools during tough jobs.

A convenient power gauge on each battery displays remaining runtime, and a second battery is included with the kit, so you never have to worry about running out of power in the middle of a task. Plus the M18 Lithium-Ion battery charger is designed to recharge batteries in one hour or less.

Since lithium-ion batteries are significantly smaller and lighter than 18-volt NiCad batteries, they play an integral role in keeping Milwaukee’s M18 tools ergonomic and comfortable to use. For added versatility, M18 tools also work with even lighter M18 Compact Lithium-Ion Batteries (not included).
