Question about Milwaukee Tool Milwaukee 48 11 2830 Battery 28V
I have 4 Milwaukee 28v tools and three batteries. When I'm using the sawzall, circular saw, or hammer drill with any of my fully charged batteries the tools can stall after only a minute or two of use and the battery indicates it needs to be recharged. I stick it back in the charger and it immediately says it now has 3/4 power and the green light (charged) comes on. I'm not impressed with the power or longevity of these batteries. Even if they don't stall right away I don't get very much time out of them.
Take a look for warranty, and contact them ... If your warranty is out of date, than you must get new one. The best place is amazon for sure, Milwaukee 48 11 2830 M28 Lithium Ion Battery Pack. Hope this was helpful, cheers

I have had the Milwaukee 28v tools for 4 years...they work great when the batteries work. Two died during the first 2 years, which were replaced free. The first replacement died about 1 year later but I waited another year for the other one to die before sending them in. All had under 100 charge cycles. Since the second set went past the 2 year free replacement, they want over $110 to replace them. BUT THE REAL PROBLEM IS I HAVE BEEN WAITHING 3 MONTHS FOR THE REPLACEMENTS!! Milwaukee basically says tough! There are batteries for sale but none for warranty replacement. They say they have supplier problems. THIS IS NOT MY PROBLEM!!! If Milwaukee chosses to use unreliable offshore suppliers, that is their choice. The tools are not cheap but the quality is!!! SOLUTION...BUY SOMETHING ELSE!!!

We are a Milwaukee service center and there is a history of this problem. Milwaukee offers a 5 yr replacement warranty, take the entire kit with batteries and charger to a Milwaukee service center and they will test and more that likely replace the batteries.

Yes I bought 2 new 28V milwaukee batteries. One has died with very limited use. They tell me not to allow these batteries to go dead and leave in this state for too long, as the memory circuits (or something) goes past the point of no return i.e. keep them charged. I did not have these problems with my Paslode, Bosch or Makita Li-Ion batteries. I refuse to buy another over priced Milwaukee battery. For the money I can buy another Sawzall by bosch (tool only) for cheaper than this Milwaukee 28v Battery. I have 3 X 36V bosch batteries that are more reliable and cheaper to replace. As is, I'm looking at trying to get a step down transformer that goes from 240V to 28V that fits into the Milwaukee battery. Yes to make this sawzall a corded sawzall, with the ability to flip this off to use my last 28V Milwaukee battery. This will be great in that I find that even if I had more Milwaukee batteries, there are times that I need a chorded unit. They tell me that the Milwaukee sawzall is an excellent machine, as I have seen using this, but for the batteries.

I bought a Milwaukee 18V kit a couple of years ago - it came with the Li-ion batteries. I already had an old Milwaukee drill with one NiCd battery. I can confirm that the Li-ion batteries shut down on the Sawzall and on the circular saw as soon you put any serious load on the tool. Only way to reset this "safety"circuit is to put the battery back in the charger for a minute. What a pain in the arse. The tools themselves are fine and I have no problem with the old NiCd battery. I'm in Australia and these tools are getting heavily marketing at the moment. I don't know if this problem has been resolved, but emailing to Milwaukee USA with my questions - they don't want to acknowlege this problem - not happy Jack!
