Makita BL1840 18V 4.0ah Lithium-ion Battery
The new Makita 4.0ah battery is only compatable with makita tools which either have a star on the connector plate or a yellow connector plate. Please see attached image which clearly illustrates this.
Please note that if ordering a 4.0ah battery in conjunction with a new Makita BGA452Z Angle Grinder the grinder is not currently compatable with 4.0ah batteries.
The new 4.0ah battery is lightweight and shock-absorbing. The Li-ion range delivers 430% more working capacity during it's lifetime compared to Ni-Cad and is 40% Lighter than Ni-MH. The Li-ion has minimal depletion of power during use or in storage over it's lifetime.
Ordering via the internet and subiquent delivery was excellent. I did try and phone to ask questions prior to order however no answer asked to leave number but no call back.
Useful addition to toolkit and and replacements for some tired older units. Bit annoyed that hammer drill bought at same time as rest of my Makita kit is not "starred" and therefore unable to accept the 4.0 batteries.
just whatit said on web page
Brilliant ,would not hesitate to use service again
I have a couple of Makita cordless tools and I have been adding batteries when I find them at a reasonable price. The 4Ah lithium ion battery delivers a good power output for a good length of time. I have used them with both drills and reciprocal saws and have not been disappointed, the reciprocal saw in particular is a big power consumer but I still get over 30 minutes of hard work out of a single charge, enough time to get a spare charged with the rapid charger! Very happy with this item.
