Utility safety: Milwaukee Tool introduces the first charging radio to bring the power of Bluetooth® to the jobsite. Cited to be the most advanced radio of its kind, the M18 Jobsite Radio/Charger allows the user to stream rich, full sound wirelessly from over 100 feet away. In addition, the 2792 also serves as a quick and convenient charging station for Milwaukee M18 Batteries and portable electronic devices.

“Milwaukee continues to raise the bar with best-in-class technology across all product categories,” says Tom Simeone, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool Corporation. “Delivering the industry's best reception and sound, this unique radio/charger features components designed from the ground up that not only give the user Bluetooth® capability, but also the ability to charge any M18 battery without sacrificing reception or sound quality.”

In addition, the USB port charges most portable electronic devices over 50% faster than any competitors, and is the only device charger on the market that can work off battery power, rather than just AC power.

Backed by legendary Milwaukee durability, a reinforced roll cage and extruded aluminum handles protect internal components from weather and abusive job site conditions. The radio/charger also offers the industry's largest on-board, weather-sealed storage compartment to protect the user’s small belongings and electronic devices. The user is even able to convert the radio into a portable entertainment center while charging tablets, with a built-in electronics stand.

Complete with an AM/FM Tuner with a digital processor, customizable equalizer, optimized speaker orientation and an on-board bottle opener, this revolutionary Jobsite Radio/Charger will set the new standard for quality and performance in this category.

Powered by Milwaukee’s M18 REDLITHIUM Battery, the M18 Jobsite Radio/Charger is compatible with the entire M18 System, now offering over 50 cordless Lithium-Ion products. Milwaukee® is committed to the ongoing development of this platform and will continue to provide innovative solutions that offer industry leading reliability, performance and ergonomics.

Launch: February 2014
