My understanding, is the batteries are chip protected, plus once the batteries reach full charge, the charger stops its cycle. Ive left batteries on charger for a couple days without dire consequences.

Considered a number of different combo kits and brands. When purchasing a cordless tool, you're committing to a lineup of tools based on the battery pack. Makita had solid reviews and wide breadth of tools using this 18-volt battery. I have not been disappointed. Haven't used the impact driver to a great extent, but have used the drill/driver quite a bit. It has performed well in all tasks - from augering 3/4" dog holes in workbench top/apron to driving 3" screws in to hardwood. Battery life exceeds expectation. With 2 batteries and the quick charger, you should never be without juice. If you are in the market for a solid drill and impact driver combo, I strongly recommend you take a look at this set. I would not hesitate to purchase again.

Got these on clearance. Perfect size and run time. They are the same size as the 3.0Ah ones but with a longer run time. Note: They will not work with older Makita tools that don't have the star on the battery receiver or yellow receiver and don't support the safety features of the newer batteries. Check the notches. Will not work with the bigger notch.

It was a surprise gift for my husband and I was a little nervous because it's not the brand that he usually gets. When he opened it, I don't think I've ever seen him more excited. He was stoked because he loves Makita, doesn't have any, and has always wanted them. He loves the super long battery life, power, and its light weight. Now, I have to ask before I'm allowed to use it!!

I had the 2.0ah that came with the drill which did great. But these are amazing. I have yet to have a project that I have ran these 5ah to even half. I wish I would have bought them a long time ago. I love the push bottom power indicator. The 5ah are only 1/2 longer than the 2ah batteries and the weight difference is minimal.

I needed to buy new batteries to complete a deck project after my last original 3.0Ah battery died (after 12-13 years), and swapping around the one 4.0Ah battery I had really slowed things down ("Are you done with the battery yet? OK. Throw it over to me.") The fuel gauge is pretty nice after all the years of not knowing how close you were to a dead battery. And the capacity is pretty amazing. I used the packs for hours of screwing or drilling into pressure-treated lumber, and rarely got to half power. The only thing that challenged the batteries was the circular saw; cutting through a very wet, pressure-treated 2x12, cutting stair stringers. 12 feet took 3 batteries (almost with 2).

Long lasting battery. Used it to power a random orbital sander for 30 minutes, almost continuously. Still had 2 bars. Plugged it in the reciprocating saw to remove a door. Still showed 2 bars. They also last a while on the circular saw. With (2) 3Ah, (1) 4Ah, (2) 5Ah batteries & two chargers, I have enough batteries for all day, powering drill, impact driver, recip saw, circular saw, RO sander, and grinder. The battery level indicator is handy, but Makita should put them on the same side as the release button. As it is, when you plug the battery in, you can't check the battery level without first removing it.
