“With the expansion of the M18™ or M12™ systems, we have a growing customer base that is using both batteries,” says Christian Coulis, Sr. Product Manager for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. “The combination of M18™ performance and M12™ productivity helps to make this a very valuable solution to the users who have invested in both systems. For example, plumbers may use M18™ cordless tools for applications that require more power and torque, and at the same time have a need to use an M12™ PVC Shear. This charger will help them be better prepared and more productive.”
Available in March 2012, the new Multi-Voltage Charger will be included with the M18™ FUEL™ Drill Driver and Hammer Drill Driver, sold as an optional accessory and will also transition into several M18™ kits throughout the year. The new unit will charge M18™ or M12™ compact batteries in 30 minutes and extended capacity (XC) batteries in 60 minutes.
With the introduction of the new charger and an unrelenting commitment to grow the M18™ and M12™ cordless platforms, Milwaukee® continues to expand its leadership position in LITHIUM-ION cordless.
