Milwaukee saves time with M12 charger (48-59-1204)
By Renée Francoeur
June 17, 2015 – Milwaukee Tool’s new M12 four bay sequential charger accepts up to four M12 battery packs, charging them sequentially—giving users the ability to spend less time swapping out batteries.
“With the line expansion of the M12 system and the wide adoption of the platform, users often have multiple tools and packs,” says Tom Simeone, director of marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “This unit increases charging productivity, improves transportation and storage of packs, and reduces the amount of space used by chargers.”
The M12 Four Bay Charger has integrated hang holes for vertical mounting and a skip button to allow users to choose the battery that is charging.
Milwaukee Redlink Intelligence hardware and software communicates with the battery to monitor cell voltage, temperature and charge status. The new unit will charge batteries in 30 minutes and extended capacity (XC) batteries in 60 minutes, according to the company.
