The Milwaukee batteries just suck. 

I bought an 18V combo package 5 - 6 years ago.  Came with two batteries, small circ saw and sawsall.  The batteries lasted least than 15 months.  I read reviews of the batteries at Amazon most reviews had the same life on their batteries.
Of course I recycled them at HD long ago. 

Last year, milwaukee had a recall on the old batteries, they had a metal serial number tab.
They waited years before a recall. That was the only one that could be returned. 

Well hello, the batteries died years ago are long gone.  How many people would hold onto a battery for 5 - 7 years??

Never, will I buy another battery tool from milwaukee again.     

I use Makita or Panasonic battery tools only
