Tool News - Milwaukee Announces New M28 Lithium-Ion Battery


Over the next several months, Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation will transition all V28 cordless power tools to the new M28 lithium-ion battery pack. While providing an improved battery pack with more advanced electronics, the new M28 lithium-ion system will be completely compatible with current V28 products, as the tools themselves will not change.

Milwaukee Electric Tool pioneered lithium-ion technology with the introduction of the V28 system in 2005. Now, Milwaukee has added Digital Power Management (DPM) to the new M28 lithium-ion battery packs to help ensure optimal battery life and run-time, while protecting the battery and tool during the toughest jobsite applications.

DPM features include a temperature management system to keep batteries at the ideal temperature range and individual cell monitoring to ensure optimal charge and discharge. Combined with a side packed design, integrated weld frame, cell separator and impact/vibration protective rubber, this pack provides maximum life and durability to the user.

With this introduction, Milwaukee Electric Tool will be releasing a new M28 lithium-ion battery pack, an M28 Hammer Drill and new lighting solutions that offer unmatched durability, performance and run-time for the professional tradesman. The first new M28 product will be available in stores summer, 2010.
