What better time to talk about the Milwaukee M12 Heated Jacket (2330L) than the middle of summer. As I sit writing this on my patio it is a balmy 86 degrees F outside. The point is I like being warm and do not like the cold, I have been wanting a M12 Jacket since the day they came out. Finally at the end of spring Eric gets me one from ACME Tools (www.acmetools.com) to shut me up. At the rate these jackets sell, now might be a good time to grab one while they are in stock.
When the Jacket arrived eyes gleaming I tore open the box like Tom Hanks in Castaway when he opened the Fed-Ex boxes. Finally I got one, I see it in my hands, I feel it, I smell it, OMG I love this jacket. I try it on and it fits like a glove, I pop a Red Lithium in the back pocket, hold the button down and it lights up flashing red. Everywhere I go with this jacket on and in heat mode people come up to me and say what is that? When I say heated jacket they are amazed and want one, I feel like a rockstar! Read more

Now we are not saying doing this is going to kill your drill and batteries, but why make the tool work harder than it should. Read more
