Milwaukee releases M12 Compact 3.0, XC 6.0 batteries
The top-performing sub-compact system in the world made up of over 90-plus solutions, the M12 line, will experience an instant upgrade in performance through the launch of two new M12 REDLITHIUM Battery Packs. As the clear leader in cordless power tool battery development, Milwaukee has designed a Compact 3.0 Battery that gives superior runtime to high frequency products without sacrificing the weight of the tool and a XC6.0 Extended Capacity Battery that will allow Milwaukee’s M12 products to outperform many 18V solutions. With the introduction of these two new game-changing batteries, Milwaukee will deliver 3X more run-time, 20 percent more power, and 2X longer life than standard lithium-ion batteries.
The new M12 REDLITHIUM Compact 3.0 battery is ideal for any high frequency products where users want to maintain their lightweight and compact size, but also experience an instant increase in their run-time – this includes used in light drilling and fastening applications, press tools, personal lighting, as well as Heated Gear and radios. When upgrading to the Compact 3.0, users will receive double the runtime of the system standard M12 1.5Ah pack.
The M12 REDLITHIUM XC6.0 will allow M12 users to tackle more aggressive applications and outperform many 18V products, as well as tools and solutions that need an extensive amount of sustained run-time to power through a full day, such as lighting. With the ability to deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack than any other 12V battery on the market, the XC6.0 battery is a leap in lithium-ion technology that completely changes the expectations of what cordless 12V tools are capable of.
