Makita Announce 5ah Batteries - BL1850

Makita Launch 5.0Ah Lithium-ion Battery For 66% More Run Time

  • Same weight as 18v 3.0Ah batteries
  • Compatible with existing Li-ion 18v tools and chargers
  • Compatible with over 70 products within the Makita 18v portfolio
  • Unbeatable 45 minute charge time

Makita has introduced a 5.0Ah Lithium-ion battery which will be available in the UK from September 2014 and will provide maximum power and extended run time for operators. Where uninterrupted run time is critical, such as on remote construction locations or where charging capacity is distant and would mean valuable time lost away from the operating point, extended run time is all important. The new Makita 5.0Ah 18v Li-ion battery provides 66% more run time than that of the 3.0Ah battery whilst maintaining the same size and weight so maintaining the excellent balance and comfort of a Makita tool in use.

The introduction of a 5.0Ah battery option will suit those operators who regularly undertake high-load operations or are frequently working on large sites far distant from a charging point. The greater capacity within the new 5.0Ah battery protects against over-heating and high discharge during heavy demand operations, thus extending the working life of the battery. The need to carry additional batteries, or be able to recharge batteries regularly, can be avoided by choosing the 5.0Ah battery option.

Recharge time for the new 5.0Ah battery is just 45 minutes when using a Makita DC18RC or DC18RA fast charger. This compares with 22 minutes for the popular 3.0Ah 18v Makita Li-ion battery or 36 minutes for the 4.0Ah Li-ion battery.

This new 5.0Ah battery is compatible with all Makita 18v Li-ion tools that have a star symbol on the connector plate, or a yellow connector plate with a star on, or have a yellow connector plate only.

More power tools are being launched complete with the new Makita 5.0Ah Lithium-ion battery included so look out for further additions to the Makita range.
