Is there really any difference between cordless tool batteries? That’s the question I set out to answer with my own test to verify tall claims being made right now by one major power tool manufacturer. The company is Milwaukee, and they say that their RedLithium batteries offer much longer run time than any other battery, including their own previous generation of lithium-ion batteries. RedLithium is also supposed to deliver more tool power, even with the same battery voltage. Results from my own gruelling, backwoods test surprised me, and to see the action and results for yourself, check out my video at http://bit.ly/battery-endurance
