Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation continues to expand the industry’s largest sub-compact battery system with the introduction of the new M12™ Realtree AP™ Heated Jacket. The new addition to the M12™ family follows the Fall 2010 launch of the very popular red M12™ Heated Jacket to satisfy mounting user requests to expand the jacket line to include gear for activities off the jobsite like hunting and fishing. This fall, Milwaukee will offer the M12™ Heated Jacket in the most popular and versatile camouflage pattern, Realtree AP™. Coupled with Milwaukee innovation and powered by RED LITHIUM™ battery technology, the new jacket provides unmatched performance for the outdoorsmen.
“Compatible with the entire line of M12™ professional power tools, users can easily utilize the same battery they have been using all day on the jobsite for a weekend of hunting or fishing with their M12™ Realtree AP™ Heated Jacket,” says Mark Senske, Sr. Product Manager, M12™ Cordless Tools for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. “Features such as a special fabric blend to reduce noise during movement, a concealed heat controller and a back tag patch to visibly display hunting licenses, demonstrate Milwaukee’s commitment to provide innovative products whether users are on or off the jobsite.”
Designed with best-in-class durability, the jacket will actively warm the body and stimulate blood circulation in even the coldest conditions. Hidden in a sleek back pocket, which can now expand to hold an XC battery, the M12™ RED LITHIUM™ battery delivers superior runtime, with up to six hours of continuous heat on a single battery charge.
Providing unparalleled warmth and comfort, the new heated jacket utilizes three carbon fiber heating zones, positioned in key areas, to warm the user’s core. This durable heating element can be set to high, medium, or low with a simple touch of a button. While the red M12™ Heated Jacket’s easy-touch heat controller is located on the lapel, the controller for the M12™ Realtree AP™ Heated Jacket is concealed just inside the lapel so that the blinking light of the controller is not visible while the user is trying to blend in to their surroundings. The heated jacket is also water and wind resistant to provide comfort and durability in harsh environments.
With constant innovation in Lithium-Ion, MILWAUKEE® continues to expand its leadership position in the sub-compact category. With over 30 tools currently in the system, the M12™ platform is the largest sub-compact system in the industry, offering innovative solutions in power, productivity, and portability. \
