Milwaukee uses seven 3.0ah cells rated at 4v wired in a series to get 28v. Bosch and I believe Dewalt too, use two rows of 10 cells. they are 3.6v per cell at 1.0ah each. Every pair is wired parallel across rows and then in series for a 2.0ah 36v pack. Makita does the same but with 10 cells to achieve 18v.
