    Interesting what comes to light during recalls. Like the fact that the Chicago Pneumatic (shouldn’t that be Chicago Electric?) stuff uses Milwaukee batteries..

  2. l_bilyk says:

    No, chicago pneumatic and chicago electric are not the same thing
    Chicago pneumatic actually makes good air tools, and a few cordless impact wrenches which were obviously rebadged milwaukee

  3. Rick says:

    My point is, wouldn’t Chicago Pneumatic – by definition – be air tools? (ie.. why would they need a battery?)

  4. l_bilyk says:

    I dont know
    IR makes battery operated tools

  5. Standard Pneumatic made my favorite electric wire-wrap gun. Go figure. 🙂

    Really fed up with Milwaukee stuff. On my 2nd set and not buying anymore of their junk batteries. Can buy a new drill and batteries for what they charge for just the batteries. Now the crap is made in china…no more!

  7. mike says:

    They have been made in china ever since TTI(most people know the famous brand—-RYOBI) bought them. And this is not there first recall. Just go to their website, they seem to have a recall every couple years.

    I have two 18 volt 2.4 ah batteries. I understand that there is a recall on these batteries. I called Milwaukee on 800-number, the person I spoke with asked for a serial number which is supposed to be on the plate on the bottom of the battery. There is no serial number. There is a catalog number which is 48-11-2230. They told me unless I have the serial number I do not qualify for the recall. These are Milwaukee batteries. There is no serial number. Can someone help me with this. Thank you I don’t also a

    It is there but VERY HARD TO SEE WITHOUT A MAGNIFYING GLASS. If you are looking at the bottom of the battery it is located about 1/2 ” from the right of the label. If you spin the battery 1/4 turn clockwise you will see it and read it. It has the manufacturer County and the date made code. I had the same problem finding it. Go to their website Milwaukeetool and search recalls. They have pictures showing where the date is
