How about putting the price in the title, OP?

I picked up the rapidcharger and battery for under $100 late last year(?) during closeouts, think it was also posted here. Save some people some click-time if you include the price in the title

It's a bundle directly from Milwaukee, so you can't return just part of it. It's all in one package.

That 2x 3.0ah High Output deal for $99 should be showing up soon too. I know some stores put out the displays without the pricing this week.

you can get the 12a for $150 regularly on Amazon authentic version so this isn't a good deal...

This set is $311 on Amazon if you add 12.0, 6.0, and fast charger to cart.

Hmm you checking right? I am able to get it down to $250 on the regular. I have the 12ah, just fyi, its heavy add. I am probably going to sell and get 2x 6ah instead. They last long enough and weigh less.

This item:Milwaukee 48-11-1865 M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion High Output Battery Pack 6.0Ah $78.99
Milwaukee Electric Tools 48-11-1812 Battery Pack $145.00
Milwaukee 48-59-1812 M12 or M18 18V and 12V Multi Voltage Lithium Ion Battery Charger w/ Onboard… $28.27

I own both the batteries and tested charge and discharge numbers on both.
Under extremely high demand (leaf blower from 100% to dead continuously), the 12Ah battery lasts 25:45 and the 6Ah lasted 12:45.
The 12Ah consumed 260Wh to recharge, and the 6Ah consumed 130Ah (measured using a Kill A Watt).
Near perfect scaling!

The 3Ah (just got it) also uses a single row of the same 21700 cells and used 67Wh when charging. I haven't done a discharge test but expect to get around 6 minutes or slightly over to account for extra heat from higher drain current.

The 6Ah will not be slowing any tools down, and I suspect it outputs more consistent power than the 9Ah (I don't have one) so I agree with the 2X 6Ah > 1x 12Ah philosophy. They are bad ass so don't feel like you need the 12Ah for anything.
