When to Charge the Battery Pack with this MILWAUKEE° Charger
Remove the battery pack from the tool for charging when convenient for you and your job. MILWAUKEE batteries do not develop a “memory” when charged after only a partial discharge. It is not necessary to run down the battery pack before placing it on the charger.

  • Use the Fuel Gauge to determine when to charge your MILWAUKEE Li-Ion battery pack.
  • You can “Top-Off’ your battery pack’s charge before starting a big job or long day of use.
  • The only time it is necessary to charge the MILWAUKEE® Li-Ion battery pack is when the battery pack has reached the end of its charge. To signal the end of charge, power to the tool will drop quickly, allowing you just enough power to finish making a cut, drilling a hole, or driving a fastener. Charge the battery pack as needed.

Charging the Battery Pack

  1. Plug your USB A end of the cable into a power source such as an AC wall adaptor, computer or car port.
  2. Insert the Micro-USB end of the cable into the Micro-USB port in the charger.
  3. Insert the battery pack into charger. The indicator light will display the charging status:
    • Red: Charging
    • Green: Charged
    • Red Flashing: Battery is too hot or too cold Red/
    • Green Flashing: Damaged or Faulty Battery
  • During charging, press the power button to display the current charge on the fuel gauge.
  • USB A Port (for device charging) and DC out port (for powering heated gear) is shut down when the Micro-USB port is being used.
  • A fully discharged battery pack with an internal temperature in the normal range will charge in about 130 to 525 minutes, depending on the battery pack.
  • Heavily cycled batteries may take longer to charge completely.
  • After charging is complete, the continuous green light will come on.
  • The charger will keep the battery pack fully charged if it is left on the charger.
  • The Red Flashing Indicator light on the charger indicates that the battery pack temperature is out-side the charging range. Once the battery pack is within the acceptable range, normal charging will take place and the red light will be continuous. Hot or cold batteries may take longer to charge.
  • If the light indicator flashes red and green, check that the battery pack is fully seated into the bay. Remove the battery pack and reinsert. If the light continues to flash red and green, the battery pack may be extremely hot or cold, or wet. Allow the battery pack to cool down, warm up, or dry out and then reinse it. If the problem persists, contact a MILWAUKEE service facility.
  • If the light indicator does not come on, check that the battery pack is fully seated into the bay. Remove the battery pack and reinsert. If the light indicator still does not come on, remove pack and unplug charger for at least 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, plug charger back in and insert pack. If after these attempts the light indicator still does not come on, contact a MILWAUKEE® service facility.

Does it come with a warranty?

Yes, all Milwaukee heated jackets come with a one year warranty from date of purchase against manufacturer defects. Warranty does not cover damage caused by misuse or abuse of product or if product is repaired or altered by anyone other than Milwaukee Tool Corporation.

Can I use a 12v battery instead of the 7.4 volt that this jacket comes with without causing damage to the jacket?

No, that does not work which is crazy to me but I have multiple 12v jackets that plug into my bike including this Milwaukee one and the 12v battery pack will not work or stay powered up. It puts the battery into a fault/error status and you have to plug it in to reset it. The battery pack that comes with this jacket is 7.4v. I purchased Milwaukee and other top brand batteries that were 12v to have extras and none of them work with the jackets. Only the 7.4v batteries work with all my 12 volt jackets. Milwaukee, Hotwired and Venture jackets all use 7.4v batteries and work great.

Will this work with the Milwaukee heated chaps?

the chaps do not work with a battery pack, they are motorcycle battery or leather jacket hook up only..

Will this battery system work with the Milwaukee Heated Socks?

This did not work for my hooded. Very disappointing

Does this battery work for the Milwaukee tool heated jacket?

The Milwaukee tool heated jacket has a different battery pack than this battery pack.

Can i use this on the Milwaukee m12 heated axis jacket?

This is a different battery pack and will not work for that jacket.
