    Not sure what the lantern is, but I have the M18 Adjustable head flashlight and love it. Got the light, hammer drill, sawzall and impact and have had no problems. I still use my corded drill and sawzall for heavy work. Milwaukee has trade ins on their tools quite often, can save you some bucks. John

    I have the lantern and it is great for taking in to a quick job instead of dragging out a chord. It was actually a tip for installing a new system in a Milwaukee dealers house. Battery last a long time opposed to the flood light they have. USB charger is garbage but I kinda expected that.

    I have crap-loads of M12 & M18. Getting rid of the V28 stuff. Never bought the usb charger. Just bought a cheap voltage inverter and plug all my chargers into it.

    The lantern has a built in USB port, I was offered the lantern or the flood light as we used both during his install (he put them out for us) but I had to change the battery in the flood light twice a day, the lantern ran for probably close to 16 hours full power on one XC battery. M12s are great, light weight and plenty strong enough for about 80% of what I do. The company this guy owns does in house repairs on Milwaukee tools too, great service.
