other patents already issued to Milwaukee in the lithium-ion field provide broad,
valuable rights to Milwaukee in the use of lithium-ion batteries in power
tools,” said Steven Richman, President of Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. “The
granting of this milestone patent confirms the long-stated position of
Milwaukee as having revolutionized the power tool industry as the leader in
