You just got home with your brand new Milwaukee M18 High Output Battery 12.0Ah and like an excited kid on Christmas tear open the box and through it on your standard red charger… then wait. Yes 241 minutes later your M18 battery with all 12.0Ah of juice will be fully charged. Even with the M18 RapidCharger 48-59-1808 you are still over 2 hours with this monster. Enter the new Milwaukee M18 SuperCharger and presto down to 60 minutes from zero to full, the new M18 6.0Ah High Output in just 35 minutes. All the speed does not come cheap however the new 48-59-1811 which does charge both the M12 & M18 is a hefty $159 and launching in July. It looks as thought the Rapid charger will remain the charger included with the high performance tools, this SuperCharger will be an add-on for now.
At Milwaukee’s New Product Symposium 2018 there were a lot of exciting announcements, one of which was the new 12.0Ah High Output M18 Batteries 48-11-1812. Most of the new NPS M18 FUEL Tools launching in July come with this new larger battery including the Table Saw, Super Sawzall, Chainsaw, Grinder and Gen 2 Circular Saw. These new 12.0Ah High Outputs use the 21700 cells for more runtime, less overheating and more peak power draw capability. We had 2 big questions; FIRST how will my existing 5.0Ah & 9.0Ah batteries perform in the new tools. SECOND will the 12.0Ah increase performance on any of my existing tools such as the M18 10” Miter Saw, Gen 1 Circular Saw or Sawzall?
The circular saw has been around for many years and offers many unique advantages. They are one of the most powerful handheld tools you can own for cutting, similar power to a small table saw but fits in your hands. Overall, they are easy to use, affordable, portable and practical for so many applications. In the days of NiCd battery technology they simply could not build a competitive pro grade circular saw to keep up with corded, however over the last several years, we’ve seen changes in cordless batteries with increased amps, performance, sizing, costs, etc. With the industry demanding longer lasting batteries and corded performance, we wanted to see how these cordless 7-1/4″ circular saws from the top professional brands would perform.
