MAKITA 18V LXT Lithium-Ion High Capacity 5 Amp Battery w/FUEL Gauge


SKU: BL1850B

The Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion battery charges faster and works longer than standard Lithium-Ion batteries, giving you and your cordless tools unmatched performance and productivity to take on the most demanding applications. The Makita 5.0Ah battery, model BL1850B, combines more run time (65% more run time per charge than the Makita BL1830 battery) with a category-leading charge time of only 45 minutes so it spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For added convenience, it also features an on-board LED charge level indicator to monitor battery charge. The 18-Volt LXT 5.0Ah battery is compatible only with Star Protection tools, indicated by the Star Symbol and/or Yellow Battery Receiver under the tool. Makita 18-Volt 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. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls. • Integrated LED battery charge level indicator allows user to monitor battery charge • Provides up to 65% more run time per charge compared to BL1830 • Reaches full charge in 45 minutes or less • Compatible only with star protection tools, indicated by the star symbol and/or yellow battery receiver under the tool • Battery delivers consistent power and run time in extreme temperatures, even in winter (-4°F/-20 °C) • Equipped with star protection computer controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating • Impact-resistant outer case and shock-absorbing inner-liner are engineered to protect the battery • 16 contact terminals maintain a constant connection with the tool to help prevent power loss or fluctuation, even during high-vibration applications • Battery resists self-discharge and remains ready for use even after long periods of storage • Makita 18-Volt lithium-ion is the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt lithium-ion slide-style battery • Makita technology delivers category-leading charge time so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger (charger not included) • 3-year limited warranty
