Me too. Check out this thread: http://www.electriciantalk.com/f14/milwaukee-m12-led-stick-light-2351-20-a-63348/Are you happy with the light output of that light?
Trying to justify to myself the extra $30 cost to get the M12 LED stick light...
It is larger and heavier. The M18 drill has about half the torque (650in/lbs) as the M12 impact (1,200in/lbs). And to top it off, the impact is better for driving screws because impacts don't cam out.
can't find them...guess I'll google it[/quot

Do you have any official info about this? Is this something from Milwaukee or just something you noticed?The newer Milw extended life batteries have a circuit that communicates with the tool to allow more draw/torque.
You can get more torque with a M12 extended battery and a fuel tool than some older M18's with the standard battery.
I have never tested the new M18's to see if the extended battery will unlock higher draws in them.
Please post any models you have noticed have the increased power/torque with extended batteries.
I've read it in the past in company literature and also on some review sites. When I stumble on it again I will try to come back here and post it.Do you have any official info about this? Is this something from Milwaukee or just something you noticed?
I've been wondering for a while if the XC batteries actually gave more power instead of just extended runtime. I've never heard that there is actually circuitry involved that does this.
That would also mean that an M12 tool is purposely reduced in power when using a normal battery, which is kinda crappy. When it it gives you torque specs, which battery is that for?
