Answer: 
Deb,
You can buy the charger by itself for $99 at any Home Depot. A great deal going right now is a compact drill, one compact battery, and a charger for $99. I saw it at the Pro Desk. They have a special display there as the "Pro Pick of the Month." For the price of the charger, you're getting a back up drill and a compact battery, too!

I'm assuming you mean a 24v Makita tool? The battery is a similar profile and design to the 24v MakStar battery, but the connections are likely very different. Even if it did fit your 24v tool, you won't get full power to the tool- it basically would just be a heavy 18v tool.

Your best bet is to "bite the bullet" and just get into the 18V LXT platform. There's a not more options than the 24v platform, the weight is incredible, and in many of the tools, the 18v LXT performs just as well, even better, than the 24V stuff!

Hi Vlas, I reached out to Makita to get you an answer.
Makita stated this battery would not fit the 24 volt tool. Also this lithium battery requires a lithium charger.

Answer: 
MAYBE. The 1815 batteries I bought several years ago as part of a drill set will not fit - i.e., CANNOT BE USED - with the BSS611Z 6 1/2 in circular saw. Bummer! (Doubles the cost of the saw!) Also makes me wonder whether I'll be able to charge the 1830 battery on my (Makita) DC18RA charger that came with the 1815 batteries.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Last longer them Milwaukee and DeWalt 18v October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Makita battery Thought the battery would come with charger but it didn't. Should have done more research to confirm before I ordered. Thought this battery would also use same charger as the other makita batteries use for the other tools but this battery would not work with other chargers I have. Ended up buying charger separate and it works good just disappointed mainly that battery did not work with makita charger already have. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita 18v battery Long lasting and well worth the money. Makes projects easier to get done without changing and charging batteries so frequently. June 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by The infamous intentional defective Makita chip which turns their batteries into paperweights. I bought a new Makita drill / impact driver set two years ago (already owned other Makita tools as well). Both batteries supplied died. Thought that was their average lifespan. So I bought a pair of these batteries at Home Depot. I use mine Mon - Sat on job sites. I always go through two full batteries a day. After four months the first one died. I sent it in to Makita. They will not warranty it. Two months later the second one would not recharge. Dead. Sent that in to Makita, again, they refused to warranty. Now I buy the generic batteries on ebay and amazon. Then I did digging around... Makita has an intentional design flaw which causes your battery to become a brick. Google it! Unbelievable. I am dumping my Makita tools and going with something else. By the way, Makita tools are not very good. I've had plastic parts fall off and overheating and misalignments. Stapler which does not take staples they claim. So many more disasters. Where did they go wrong? I do not drop my tools. All are carefully taken care of and never loaned to anyone! They are my paycheck! May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good battery I used this battery for a week without charging it once using my impact I took multiple things apart and back together...and on the last day I was building some boxes which involved tons of drilling screws it lasted another good hour. I would totally recommend this battery because it is very high quality...and withstood a couple of drops (oops) but would also recommend any makita tool. June 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cant beat the battery have replaced my older lithium batterys with the 3.0 lxt and its night and day.do a lot of framing with my Makita driver.and have been able to do over 5 lbs of 4 inch screws with out changing the battery June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid smart power pack! These battery packs record a complete charge and recharge history. A Makita service station can check it out for you and provide a complete history. I have four of these. Had to replace one once and the service center had no problem giving me an on-the spot replacement based on the history. Overall they are very trouble free. I use it for my drill, flashlight, impact drive, weed wacker, blower, reciprocating saw and vacuum! January 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Battery dies after ten charges. Do not buy! Battery was charged about 10 times. Gave good power for the first ten, then out of the blue it gave me that red beeping alarm on the charger. This is due to their internal chip that shuts down the charging for some random reason - not for the number of cycles. These batteries are expensive and are defective!! Look for another brand. Home Depot should not sell these and Makita should offer a refund or a recall. My battery is now of no use and new ones are $99. Home Depot sold it to me as a sale item but now I wont buy one again at Home Depot and I wont buy another Makita! October 6, 2013
