During the next several months, Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. will transition all V28 cordless power tools to the company's new M28 lithium-ion battery pack.
While providing an improved battery pack with more advanced electronics, the new M28 lithium-ion system will be completely compatible with current V28 products, as the tools themselves will not change, according to the company.
"The largest high voltage lithium-ion system on the market just got better," says Christian Coulis, Milwaukee's senior product manager for cordless, in a news release. "One of the largest advantages of the transition is that users are able to instantly upgrade the performance, run time and durability of the V28 tools they already own, simply by switching to the improved M28 battery pack."
Milwaukee Electric Tool introduced the V28 system in 2005. Milwaukee has added Digital Power Management (DPM) to the M28 lithium-ion battery packs to help ensure optimal battery life and run time, while protecting the battery and tool during the toughest job-site 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, according to the company.
The first new M28 product will be available in stores this summer. For information,visit www.milwaukeetool.com.
