Optimal Charging

Looking at the graphics it can be noticed the difference in charging between Well Balanced Charging and Unbalanced charging. As you can expect the Makita Lithium Ion charges all cells equally while also discharges them evenly, resulting in all cells being used to their maximum potential therefore increasing the battery performance and charge time

All Makita 18v and 14 v features a built in memory chip, allowing to record the battery usage history. Moreover, the built in CPU will be communicating with each battery allowing to determine its condition (over-discharging, heat abused etc), while also facilitating an optimized charging system.

One of the greatest advantages of Makita Lithium Ion Batteries is that  they can be charged at any time, without having to wait for the complete deployment of power.


Power Tool Compatibility

The 4.0Ah BL1840, and 5.0Ah BL1850 will be compatible with 18v Makita Power Tools if it has a start on the connector place, has a yellow connected place only or a yellow connector plate with a star.

Look for the 'Star' or a 'Yellow Connector'
