Product Overview

  • Powers the expanding 18V LXT line of cordless tools
  • Extended Run Time; Powers 18V LXT and 18V Compact Tools
  • Battery has a 3-year limited warranty from date of purchase
Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion batteries charge faster and work longer than standard lithium-ion batteries, giving you and your Makita cordless tools unmatched performance and productivity for demanding applications. The Makita 3.0Ah battery (BL1830B) has a category-leading charge time of only 30-minutes, so it spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger. It also features an LED charge level indicator to monitor battery charge. Makita is the innovation leader in cordless tool technology and has the world's cordless tool line-up powered by 18-Volt lithium-ion slide-style batteries. The BL1830B 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 Rapid Optimum Charger (sold separately) is a smart-charging system that communicates with the battery during charging to monitor current, voltage and temperature. This helps optimize battery life and deliver a faster charge. The Charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster and more efficient charging. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls. STAR Protection is communication technology that allows the tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating.
  • Integrated LED battery charge level indicator allows user to monitor battery charge
  • Reaches full charge in 30-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

will these batteries fit the combo; 18-Volt LXT Lithium-ion Cordless Compact Combo Kit (3-Piece) (Drill/ Impact Driver/ Flashlight) w/ (2) Batteries 1.5Ah
Asked by: rj
Yes. All of the Makita 18-volt LXT Lithium-ion tools use the same style battery. The latest version battery with the fuel indicator is just an improvement to the earlier version.

Hi, What 3.0Ah, 4.0Ah ... means ? Can I use any of them on my tool ? It it the capacity ? So higher is the number, longer I can use ?
Asked by: Bruno
So many of these questions should be answered by the manufacturer and not us contractors in the field. 3.0 Ah means 3 amp hours. So at one amp draw the battery will last 3 hours. Of Course it depends what tool you have it in because they draw different amps and more with load or at higher speed, so it's really impossible to determine how long it will last. Just know, the higher the number the longer the use time. I generally use the higher amp batteries on the larger tools where the weight is not an issue. If I'm using a small drill or driver it makes sense to use a smaller battery to keep the weight down and give my old muscles a break.

will these work for replacement of Bl1830

Asked by: Jeff
I'm not sure, but Google something like "will old Makita tools (no Star) work with new Makita Batteries (with star). I found a Youtube video that said there was a problem, and showed how to fix it, but I don't know if the fix might create any problems. I also found there was a problem getting old and new tools and batteries to allow the different generations to physically accept each other. But just now I retried old and new tools with old and new batteries and both ways worked. I seems Makita, at some point, had something in the old tools that kept the new batteries from sliding in. I assume (but don't know) that the various diagnostics in the new batteries don't work in the old tools, and perhaps also the old chargers. I don't know if the fuel gauge affects compatibility in itself, but it does indicate a newer battery. My BL 1830B (18-volt, 3AH battery with fuel guage) has a star on it. And, if both your tools and your batteries have a star on them, they should be compatible. I think the main issue is BE Careful. Try to find someone at Makita to give you the company's definitive answer. This should not be so complicated. Makita, whose tools and batteries I like, should make it easier for their customers to find the answers.

I have many objects and plants that I have to hand-weed around in this garden, after which I use a string-trimmer to control the pathways, the patches of grass-cover, etc. I cannot do this with a wide-swath trimmer, and I don't want to wear myself out with the weight of such a machine, anyway. Also, many parts of this garden can be reached only by twisting and turning and repositioning any electrical cord very far from an electrical outlet--a situation that makes the corded type of string-trimmer very awkward to use, as I have done, in past years. So the use of this cordless battery-pack type of trimmer is a liberating experience. This machine is wonderful, especially for the particular challenges of edging and trimming in the home garden and in the kind of situation--such as a herb garden or rock garden--that I have just described. It is, of course, not meant for really tough weeds. But if you're edging your home lawn and/or garden, or trimming up a complicated pattern of grass and plantings and rocks, etc, this is the go-to tool. I have used it only about four times by now, but so far I find that it is sturdy enough, and that the cord-feeding tap works o.k. and saves line, compared to my old trimmer. I found that the battery life filled every bit of the advertised promise, and that, when the battery once did get tired before I was, the other battery took over and furnished more than enough power to finish the job. I love it! Gardenergirl

I searched to buy spare batteries for my drill driver set and found the original Makita was quite expensive. These were reduced in price for a short time. They are bigger and heavier than the original battery that came with the drill driver set.
