Makita BL1850 18v 5.0Ah Li-Ion Battery
At Buyaparcel we have been patiently awaiting the receipt of the new Makita 5 amp battery and at last, the time has come!
With all the big power tool competitors fighting it out for the highest rung on the ladder, it was only a matter of time before the Makita BL1850 arrived.
Re-charging can cause valuable time on the job to be lost so longer run time is critical. The Makita BL1850 provides 66% more run time than a 3.0ah battery whilst maintaining the same size and weight.
The question you will all be asking…Will the Makita 5.0Ah Battery Work With My Makita Tool?
This 5.0Ah battery is compatible with all existing 18v li-ion tools and chargers 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.
The greater capacity of the battery also means it is protected from overheating and high discharge during heavy demand operations therefore extending the working life of the battery.
The 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.
So, why choose the Makita 18v 5.0AH battery? It will reduce the need for you to carry additional batteries and reduce the time spent re charging allowing you to have a lighter toolbox and more time spent on the job.
