Product differs from picture. Deceptive advertising!
The charger I received has newer housing that’s cosmetically similar to the current 120V domestic outlet-powered model. Unlike the advertised product, which uses the old, previous generation charger housing. Apparently Makita decided to update the product without telling anyone! Now I will have to actually look at the plug or the pictures on top to know which charger I’m holding in my hand! What is happening to my country! Disturbed, I decided to test the charge time to see if Makita also went and snuck in rapid-charging under our noses as well. In this case the charge time was as advertised. Although I couldn’t monitor my 5Ah battery too closely because driving, I did look after 1 hour and 50 minutes and it had finished charging by then. Disclaimers: I can’t know if this update applies to all units presently sold or if there are old stragglers out there still. I accept no liability if you don’t get the one you want. Note, while the footprint of this updated charger is the same as the 120V unit, the unit is taller.

    Worked great. Didn’t have to up grade my inverter that was in my Ford. This did the trick with no modifications. The original Ford inverter cant handle the std 18v Makita charge put no problem with this one.
