A reader sent in a tip about this Milwaukee M18 Top-Off compact AC inverter and 5Ah battery bundle. (Thank you Jim Felt!)
The Milwaukee Top-Off is basically a supercharged USB charging adapter AND it has a 120V AC port for powering lighter duty electronics (175W max output).
The Top-Off fits all Milwaukee M18 batteries, it has separate on/off buttons for USB and AC ports, and it also has a USB C PD port (45W max output) in addition to the typical USB A (2.4A).
As a bare tool/accessory, the Top-Off typically sells for $99 by itself.
Over at Home Depot, they took the Top-Off and bundled it with an XC 5.0Ah battery, with a $149 bundle price.
During the holiday seasons, you can usually get a 2-pack of 3.0Ah batteries for $99 or $100. By extension, promo pricing puts the M18 3.0Ah batteries at ~$50 each.
With this bundle, you get a 5.0Ah battery with the Top-Off. If you consider the Top-Off’s $99 bare tool price, $50 extra for a 5.0Ah battery is a pretty good deal.
If you want the Top-Off and have been eager for a 5.0Ah battery but didn’t want to spend the regular retail price ($139 for 1, $199 for 2), $149 seems to be a very good price for this bundle.
Bundle Price: $149
Thank you Jim for the heads-up!
