Makita 18-Volt Lithium-ion is the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. At the heart of Makita 18-Volt LXT Series is the efficient Rapid Optimum Charger. The Rapid Optimum Charger offers key advantages for Makita 18-Volt Lithium-Ion cordless tool users. The exclusive built-in fan cools the battery (sold separately) by forcing air through the battery's air vents during the charging process for faster charging. The charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature. The result is category-leading battery charge times, which means the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger (note: also charges 14.4-Volt Lithium-Ion batteries).

Traveling in Europe. Can I use it with 220v? Thanks

Asked by Eu June 7, 2018

Answers

No, you cant, I took one home to the Philippines which also has 220 voltage output and my son plug it in the regular outlet and blew up the fuse and burnt the CB, you have to use an AVR ( automatic voltage regulator) But I think Makita has a model for 240V output, for outside of the US use.

Does this run on 50hz only or 50/60hz.

Asked by Kev April 22, 2018

The product can be used 50 - 60 HZ outlets .
