The M18 REDLITHIUM XC5.0 Extended Capacity Battery (48-11-1850) is specially engineered and lab tested for maximum performance and reliability. As Lithium-ion batteries become more popular in today’s electronics, it’s easy to forget that just because it’s labeled as lithium-ion doesn’t automatically mean it’s worth your time. Careless attention to details when designing lithium-ion batteries can lead to short service life and even dangerous reactions from damaged cells. To avoid these issues and deliver a trustworthy battery that will last you for years, the M18 5Ah XC battery is designed down to the last screw to protect itself and your tools. Dealing with high amounts of energy from unstable Lithium ions, this starts with managing and controlling heat. This battery uses high quality cells, lab tested by Milwaukee themselves to ensure the superiority in all aspects over competitors. The thermal design uses a wide surface area to pull heat from the cells allowing them to stay cool under pressure. If this wasn’t enough, REDLINK technology continuously monitors the cells for overload and overheating, taking action if needed. These features also ensure the battery runs at full capacity in temperatures as low as 0°F. The Electronic coating, latch cover, and water protection barrier prevent water from damaging the battery. For durability, the M18 XC5.0 uses a fully enclosed cell carrier with shock responsive separators to fortify the cell structure. A rubber overmold protects the battery from abuse and drops. The protective design results in healthier, longer-lasting cells that run for hours and charge faster. If you are looking for immediate improvements to the runtime and reliability of your Milwaukee M18 tools, this battery is what you need.
Delivers up to 2.5X more run-time, 20% more power and 2X more life than standard lithium-ion batteries. The M18™ REDLITHIUM™ XC 5.0 extended capacity battery pack features superior pack construction, electronics, and performance to deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack than any battery on the market.
