I really like the Makita line of tools great quality and reliability. These batteries are great they last a long time because of how the charger keeps them cool while charging. I got them a great price.

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.

    Utterly Disappointed with Home Deport online order service
    I ordered the product for its attractive price backed with Makita's name but little did I expect the product (both drills) to be a used one. The rest of the items (led light, charger, storage bag) were neatly packed within their wrappers except the two drills. The seal on the main box was broken but I didn't paid much attention as I was too excited to start on my home project which I was waiting to work on from one week. The drills have the scuffle marks, lots of dust and no plastic wrapper (as on other three items)

      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.

      Battery worked well for me, I used this for my x2 tracksaw. Not enough to drain the battery so I can not attest to how long they will last for. Also with the rapid charger they charge in 45minutes which is greater
