The Makita 18-Volt Compact Lithium-Ion battery charges 4x faster than comparable Ni-Cd batteries. The combination of Makita's rapid optimum charger (sold separately) communicates with the battery's built-in chip to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature; and has a built-in fan to cool the battery to produce more lifetime work. The battery takes only 15 minutes to recharge.

California residents: seeProposition 65 information

Rated 3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unhappy with this product Similar to many of the other costumers who have written reviews I, too, am having trouble with the battery. I have only had the drill a little over a year and the battery pack is flashing red and green. From what I have read that indicates that it is no longer accepting a charge! This makes me very unhappy considering the new battery will cost over 80 dollars! I am not going to put more money into a battery and product that is likely to fail in another year!I read that Makita will not do anything if it is over the year warranty. Shame on them for not standing by thier products. I will not buy another Makita drill! I had a Dewalt for almost 10 years. That battery and drill was strong during that whole time. Looks like I will go back to Dewalt. August 6, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Battery does not last! I had it for just over a year hardly ever need to use it much, once I need to use it the red and green light goes on, the battery is dead , like other customer said Mikita won't do anything, even A's hardware store said Mikita should replace it, because my drill looks like new . on this review page there are 3 customer said the same thing about the low life battery so how could anyone be such a fool to buy this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by it's a replacement battery If you own a Makita compact lithium ion drill and your battery went bad, this is your only option. I put my tools through he!!. These batteries last for about a year of regular use(making holes in duct, sinking screws, falling off ladders, etc...) 50 hrs/wk 51 weeks out of the year. Then i just get an error code and the battery won't even take a partial charge. The guys running Dewalts replace theirs at about the same rate. I'm going to try the Ryobi +one kit next time around. See how it holds up. July 30, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Battery doesn't last I had two batteries that bought with the drill. I used my drill about once a month and after a year, both batteries won't accept a charge. I have to buy a new battery because I paid 300 for drill, charger and two batteries. November 21, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not too bad... First this ad doesn't say this is the 1.5 Ampere Hour battery, which is pretty basic- HD has trouble getting the details right on their website. Second, the on-line price elsewhere is 20% less, w/ free shipping. Third, I had a couple of the early 3.0AH ones go bad- Makita may have improved them by now, All this having been said, the Makita 18V Li-ion system is great- batteries charge quickly, don't run down even after sitting several weeks, which NiCads do. The tools are very well designed, excellent ergonomics, good value for the price. They're a generation out of date, but they're still the equal of anything on the market. I bought an extra impact driver, just in case the first failed- as a professional, I don't want to be without one. June 25, 2011
