Rapid Charger

Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver productivity-enhancing solutions to the professional tradesman with the introduction of the M18™ & M18™ Rapid Charger (48-59-1808). Similar to the M18™ & M18™ Rapid Charge Station (48-59-1807) that launched in February 2015, the new unit will charge an M18™ or M18™ battery up to 40% faster than standard chargers.


Featuring Redlink™ Intelligence hardware and software, the station is equipped with the most advanced electronic system on the market. Redlink™ monitors the health of the battery packs, protecting against overcharge and over-discharge. Each pack has a unique charging profile, fully optimizing its speed and life. As an added level of communication, the charger indicates an 80% state of charge by a slow, green flashing light. Rather than waiting until the pack is fully charged, this allows the user to pull a battery off of the charger sooner and have the confidence that they can still complete a significant amount of work.


Available now, the Rapid Charger is included with select M18 FUEL™ products and also sold as an optional accessory. When compared to existing units that charge one M18™ Redlink™ XC5.0 Battery in 110 minutes, the new charger has the power to charge the same battery in under an hour.
