The drill should be fine, but some tools are not directly compatible. (The battery is physically too large to install.) Good news, Milwaukee will take the tool back and modify to work with the larger batteries free if you do have a tool that doesn't fit.

The larger battery is going to be useful if you're using the Milwaukee blower, or chainsaw. The 12.0 is literally a massive monster of a battery and due to the fast discharge rate of those two devices, you want as large of a battery as you can get.

For nearly everything else ... the 5.0 XC is going to be that sweet spot in terms of size, and recharge rates. Not to mention, given enough time, every battery is going to fail (degradation, damage from drops or just aging out).

So if you're looking for a battery for a light, drill or anything else that a semi- to light weight pro needs, stick with the 5.0s as the base.

These are real Milwaukee batteries, how do they compare to the redline comparable batteries. I have one and it works ok but sometimes it will not charge.

Will these work with any M18 tools? I bought an M18 drill about 10 years ago. And I recently bought the LED tripod light.

EDIT: Sorry, I think I found the answer in the description. -Versatility: Powers all 200-plus M18 cordless solutions -Compatible with all M18 tools

Yes, Milwaukee has maintained M18 compatibility from the start even with the switch to "Red Lithium" and the FUEL tools and high-output batteries. My original M18 drill and driver work just fine with the latest batteries that I've bought, and it's one of the reasons why I'll stick with Milwaukee.

The only issue is that the 12.0 and 8.0 are a decent amount heavier than the 5.0 batteries. I guess they'd be fine for the light (though overkill), but I wouldn't use the big batteries with a one-handed tool like a drill or driver for any extended period of time.

The V18 series tools, which preceded the M18, are incompatible. I think those were NiCad.

[edit] Read the post above, and I forgot about some of the tools where the batteries fit inside, like the portable shop vac, or at a particular angle like the barrel jigsaw. I haven't run into any issues, but I've only used my 12.0 battery with the blower and the circular saw. The 5.0 batteries have been fine for all of my other tools.

Great deal for these batteries. But it's really not practical if you're only using it on something like a drill. They are just too heavy. I'd much rather have several smaller batteries for the handheld tools.

These large batteries are good for the high power tools that'll kill a standard battery in 10min, or tools you won't move around too much. I use a 12.0 for the shop vac, it gets me about an hr of use.

Don't forget about the saws. There's 3 m18 miter saws an m18 tablesaw and a rear handle circular saw (looks like a worm drive) all of those tools will benefit from the larger battery pack

The 12 doesn't fit in all the tripod lights.

5.0 is old school. You want the slim 3.0 or 6.0 with the newer higher output cells if you are buying new batteries.

I'm tempted... I have a 9.0 and it's literally a beast with the gen 2 blower.

Did an entire yard of leaves yesterday for my neighbor and he was quite impressed with the power and longevity of the blower. His dewalt blower didn't even stand a chance.

Finally a good deal on the 12. Been eyeing them for the two tripod lights that I purchased a few months back but the $200.00 price tag just hurts and i have been using the 5ah batteries they work good but this 12ah is a MONSTER. Good find OP my HomeDepot had nothing at the store showing this deal.
