Makita Rapid Optimum Charging
Makita offer the worlds largest cordless tool system powered by 18v lithium ion batteries so they need to ensure the essentials of this system - the batteries and charger - meet your demands.
Downtime on the job is always a frustration, although it may give you time to make a quick brew, you certainly dont want to be waiting an age for your batteries to re charge.
A built-in fan circulates air through the battery during the charging process to cool the battery for faster charge time. Unlike competitor fast chargers, the active cooling in Rapid Optimum Chargers allows for immediate charging once the battery is installed onto the charger base.
Rapid Optimum Chargers optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature during the charging cycle. This communication allows the charger to provide indications of the battery's status
