Milwaukee announced their new REDLITHIUM battery technology today, which is said to provide their cordless tools with unmatched run-time, performance and durability. The new REDLITHIUM batteries will be fully compatible with all M12 and M18 cordless products currently on the market.
These new batteries are expected to provide “upto 40% more run-time, 20% more power and 50% more recharges than other Lithium products.” They’re also designed to work in extreme temperatures as low as 0°F (-18°C) and operate 20% cooler with fade-free power and without any memory effect.
This sounds pretty darn good to us! Simply buying a new battery would instantly boost the power and run-time of existing tools.
Milwaukee will introduce 8 new cordless tools powered by the RL batteries this Fall before a full-line REDLITHIUM transition begins.
Here’s a list of all the new cordless tools launching this Fall:
- 2432-20 M12™ ProPEX Expander
- 2330 M12™ Heated Jacket
- 2411-20 M12™ Hammer Drill Driver
