The Makita 18V Compact Lithium-Ion battery charges faster and works longer than standard compact lithium-ion batteries, giving you and your cordless tools unmatched performance and productivity to take on the most demanding applications. The Makita 2.0 Ah battery combines more run time (50% more run time per charge than the Makita BL1815 battery) with a category-leading charge time of only 25 minutes, so it spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries resist self-discharge so they’re ready for use even after long periods of storage. The Makita Rapid Optimum Charger (sold separately) is a smart-charging system that communicates with the battery during the charging process to monitor current, voltage and temperature. This advanced charging technology helps optimize battery life and deliver a faster charge. In addition, the Charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster and more efficient charging, even in hot weather conditions.
