2 Milwaukee M12 3ah XC batteries (two-pack), $69 Home Depot YMMV

+4 Deal Score

Originally $99 for the 2-pack, they had dropped to $89 not long after Black Friday. A couple weeks after that, I saw a section with the $69 price. I figured it was for the smaller batteries, and didn't pay it much mind. Took a better look yesterday, and the UPC for the $69 price sticker matched the UPC on the 3ah 2-pack. Looking around, I see that there's two other sections of them, at the $89 price.

Took a pic of the $69 price with a set of batteries, and took it to the register. Rang at $89, but showed the cashier the picture with the price, and she had no hesitation at changing the price.

$69 for the two-pack is a good deal. Not sure if this is simply a sticker misprint for my store, but in case it wasn't, wanted to share.

Now that Milwaukee has moved to xc 6.0 and 4.0 before that, I imagine you'll start seeing the 3.0 get cleared out in general.

Checked it out, overseas (China?) company that, from reviews I saw, indicated products might be refub or knockoffs. For about the same price, I'd buy from HD.

I ordered 2 Milwaukee batteries that lasted 3 months. I wanted to return them and get replacement batteries and was told that the is to do nothing after 2 months. your warranty for batteries sucks. I would advise that anyone that needs replacement batteries get them some where else.

Ordered replacement Hitachi batteries for a few drills. What I got were cheap China batteries. Had to pay return shipping as well.

I went to a Milwaukee center and had my 1.5 year old batteries replaced when the small plastic cover cracked. No questions asked. M12 carry a 2 year warranty and fuel batteries a 3 year warranty.

Yours is clearly the better deal. Home Depot would never sell fakes.

If you're interested, here is a video in which AvE, the crazy Canadian, tears apart, reviews and compares a fake M18 battery to a real M18. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_UJeBoZ14Y

There are new 3.0ah batteries out now that are the same size as the current 1.5ah ones... thus the reason for clearance
