I have the Milwaukee 18v brushless with 2 5ah batteries. I would estimate that I can do 30+ holes in 12" ice with a 7" auger with each battery. Last weekend, I did 60-70 holes in 5"-7" ice with one battery.. If I were betting, I drilled at or over 70 but there's a chance it was in the 60s.So propane doesn't run in the cold and i need to build a Frankenauger ;-) Got it. How many holes in 12" ice is a battery good for with the M18? With the Ion?

You just need an extension (available from manufacturer) for thicker ice.Do any of you fuel/electric guys have concerns about thicker ice? Like Granby in March.
The thickness of the ice doesn't worry me, its the battery life. I just bought a fuel but am pretty concerned that it won't last long enough to drill enough holes for me late season. I figured I'd give it a try and keep my Jiffy pro4 handy until I can put the fuel to the test.You just need an extension (available from manufacturer) for thicker ice.
Helpful Hint: If you are thinking you might need one, buy it now as these are plentiful this time of year but usually unavailable in late ice season.
