Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Masterelectricianbill Best Battery Ever Made
I have batteries from the early 80's and although they may have diminished as to their run time capacity, they are still good enough to run my 9.6 flashlight. The reason these batteries are still being sold is that the tools they go to are still running more than 30 years later. My 9.6 drill is 38 years young!! The design is genius, a stick that fits "inside" the tool handle instead of hanging off the end! Makita was a leader in cordless tools from day one and they STILL have it nailed!! Read the other 5 star reviews.
Lisa and Ernie at 3402 are always awesome for help and advice they found 2 in store.

The Makita battery lasts longer than any substitute and is worth the difference.

I have a couple of old Makita drills in desperate need of new batteries. Finding these new replacement batteries in my local Home Depot at a reduced price really made my day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lilrabbit Two Amazing Things About This Battery
Actually, make that three!
The first amazing thing is that this battery fits the two Makita drills that I bought in 1987, more than 25 years ago.
The second amazing thing is that Makita cordless drills are so well made that I am still using them 25 years later.
The third amazing thing is that my Makita drills saw daily construction site use for 12 of those 25 years and that I am only on my third pair of new batteries. Makita seems to have found a souce for NiCd cells that are bombproof. The original batteries lasted nearly ten years. The second set still hold sufficient charge for casual home shop use. I bought this third set for Justin Case.

These batteries have worked well for me for many years, charge time is fast and an a lot of work can be done before you have to charge again.

This rechargeable battery is a replacement. The other battery I had was 20 years old.

Checked availabilty on line at store and went to pick the battery up. I could not locate it. A splendid sales associate found it for me, (it was not where it was supposed to be), and also obtained another one from the top of the sheving so that I could have a spare battery. Now tell me; how much better does it get than that!
