I have had my 18 volt Milwaukee drill now for quite some time. Well, it finally crapped out, so i wanna buy another Milwaukee drill.
well, they don't make the ni-cd battery style drill anymore, or at least they don't sell it in stores.
I wouldn't mind switching over to the new litium ion battery and drill....they are pretty cool. well, my problem is, i have a perfectly good working charger that is a DC charger that i plug into the power port of my truck. being I only do service, I'm never really anywhere long enough to plug my batteries in to charge them, so the car charger is how I charge my batteries.
The car charger, however, will not work with the new lithium ion batteries.
I played hell just trying to even get the stupid car charger - it took over 2 months to get it because it was out of manufacture and on back order. this was 7 years ago.
I look tonight to try to find out how much a lithium ion Milwaukee car charger would cost, and the stupid things are out of stock and out of manufacture.
I am so sick of hassles like this every time i want something. Was gonna say screw Milwaukee and go with another brand, but looks like every brand will be hard to get an automotive charger......plus DeWalt and others i looked at don't give you a nice plastic case anymore, they give you that stupid bag.
I guess I'm just going to buy an old 18 volt ni-cd drill off ebay....then i won't have 2 good batteries and a $150 car charger that is useless.
