Milwaukee expands warnings for its Li-ion 9.0-amp battery pack

In consultation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Milwaukee Tool is expanding the warnings and instructions of its M18 High Demand 9.0 battery pack (model no. 48-11-1890).


The expanded product warnings address situations that could lead to a battery pack failure and/or other safety hazards.

Should highly conductive or corrosive fluids get inside the M18 high Demand 9.0-amp hour battery pack in sufficient quantities, it can cause battery pack failure. Failure can include short circuiting which, in the extreme situation, can result in smoking or fire even when not in use. Examples of highly conductive or corrosive fluids include seawater, certain industrial chemicals and bleach or bleach-containing products.

This safety notice does not require users to return their M18 High Demand 9.0 battery packs. Milwaukee Tool is urging its customers to download, read and understand the expanded warnings and instructions at milwaukeetool.com/safetynotices, where they will also find frequently asked questions and answers.
