Milwaukee Tool announced the introduction of the M18 Packout Six Bay Rapid Charger, which has the ability to rapidly charge two batteries simultaneously.
This new solution can charge six M18 Redlithium XC5.0 battery packs in three hours.
“As our M18 system continues to expand, there is a growing need for a portable, multi-bay, fast charging solution,” said Kelli Semon, product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “We are excited to pair our charging technology with Packout Modular Storage, delivering faster charging and increased portability, leading to our most versatile M18 charger yet.”
The new M18 Packout Six Bay Rapid Charger can charge two batteries simultaneously at a rapid charge rate, according to Milwaukee Tool. Users can charge one battery at a time on each side of the charger, with charging then automatically moving sequentially to the next available battery as charging progresses.
The increased charge speed reduces downtime spent waiting for batteries to charge, delivering more productivity with every charge. Full compatibility with the Packout Modular Storage System provides a solution for transporting and storing batteries on the job site. The USB-A port provides charging for personal devices such as phones, headlamps, and flashlights.
Milwaukee Tool said it is committed to driving toward a cordless job site by delivering solutions that maximize productivity for users.
