Over the next several months, Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. will transition all V28 cordless power tools to the new M28 Li-ion battery pack. While providing “an improved battery pack with more advanced electronics”, the M28 lithium-ion system will be completely compatible with current V28 products, as the tools themselves will not change. Milwaukee has added Digital Power Management (DPM) to the M28 Li-ion battery packs to help ensure optimal battery life and runtime, 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 promises maximum life and durability. Milwaukee will also be releasing a new M28 Li-ion battery pack, 28V charger, M28 hammer drill and lighting solutions.
