M28 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack 28 Volt

M28 Lithium Ion XC Battery

M28 Lithium-Ion Battery by Vital Signs, Inc., A GE Healthcare Company

M28 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack – Compare to Milwaukee 28 Volt Battery Part # 48-11-2830

Most are looking for the Battery Pack when trying to solve the problem of how much one has to shell out to purchase a M28 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack from Milwaukee for their power tools. While others are simply just looking for an additional Battery Pack for their EnFlow IV Blood/Fluid Warmer kit. Either way, let me say it wasn’t until I saw the resemblance of this 28-Volt Battery Model 320 by enErgy 1 Vital Signs, Inc. that I thought it looked just like the Milwaukee M28 Red-Lithium XC 48-11-2830. Upon further review, you can see it is very, closely related. Then looking at the charger Model 302, again, very closely related. Then when you see the Specs are the same or at least very close, and the fact it runs all Milwaukee tools that take the V28 or M28 then you know either Milwaukee made them for Vital Signs, Inc or they both use the same Manufacturer.

It has also been seen that a former employee of GE Healthcare also worked for Milwaukee and was an Engineer. Is there a relation here to how it came about or just coincidence? Either way, you can purchase one of these Batteries and not only use it for the EnFlow IV Fluid/Blood Warmer but as a backup battery or for any of your Milwaukee tools apparently (SAME SPECS AS MILWAUKEE 48-11-2830).

For those wanting, here is a link to ebay where you can purchase the M28 Lithium-Ion Battery:
