Does this charger know enough to turn itself off before it runs the vehicle battery down too far ...

I believe so. Here's why: when I put a 5.0ah battery on the charger, and the vehicle is running, charges just fine. And most of the time without the vehicle running it charges just fine. BUT sometimes, when I'm opening and closing doors, lights are on all day and the vehicle battery is too low to start, I look at the charger and it is flashing red and green lights indicating bad battery. It's not really bad, there just is not enough juice to charge the battery. I've noticed after using this charger for over a year, it does this occasionally when the vehicle is not running

How does a 12v car battery charge an 18v battery?

Asked by Gaca April 9, 2017

Answers

The circuit to perform this usually referred to as a "step up charge controller", because it steps up the voltage from the input voltage to the voltage needed to run the device, so in this case, changing ~12v input to 18v or so as needed to charge the battery. Hope it helps.

will this charger charge the new makita 4 and 5 AH LI batteries

In the compatibility section of the specifications, it says "Makita 18V LXT Slide Style Lithium-Ion Batteries" and in one of the images, it says it can charge a 5.0AH battery (which is LXT style) in 90 minutes, so I think it will charge all 18V Makita batteries.

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.
