Milwaukee V18 Vs. 18V?

milwaukee_li_ion_18.jpgA while back, we told you about Milwaukee's new Compact 18-Volt Drill, but what we didn't know is that the li-ion battery that comes with it is not the same as Milwaukee's standard 18-volt lithium-ion battery. As it turns out, the differences between the two batteries are significant. For one, the new compact batteries only work with other Milwaukee compact li-ion tools as opposed to the larger batteries, which are compatible with all of your old Milwaukee 18-volt tools.

But don't worry, there's a real easy way to tell them apart. The new ones are called 18V Lithium-Ion Batteries and the older ones are called V18 Lithium-Ion Batteries. Simple, right?

Our buddies over at Toologics have the complete run down of the two batteries here.
