Milwaukee 48-59-1850 M18 Redlithium XC5.0 Starter Kit

SKU MILW48-59-1850

The M18 REDLITHIUM XC5.0 Starter Kit delivers up to 2.5X more runtime, 20% more power and 2X more recharges than standard lithium-ion batteries. The lithium-ion battery pack features superior pack construction, electronics, and performance giving you more work per charge and more work over pack life than any battery on the market. The rechargeable battery also offers you 5.0 amp-hours of runtime. Each battery pack is durably built for heavy-duty use, runs cooler, and performs in climates below 0°F/-18°C. This protection routes water away from the electronics and out of the battery pack, extends your battery's run-time and life by minimizing heat, and prevents pack failures from vibration or drops. Built-in REDLINK Intelligence protects the battery from overloads, preventing you from damaging your cordless power tools in heavy-duty situations, while the discharge protection prevents cell damage. An integrated temperature management system and individual cell monitoring help to maximize your battery's life. Switch to our REDLITHIUM XC5.0 Battery Pack to instantly upgrade the runtime and durability of your Milwaukee M18 cordless tools. In addition to the battery pack, the starter kit inlcudes our M18 & M12 Battery Charger.
