Makita Lithium-Ion 3.0Ah Power Tool Battery

Long lasting lithium-ion power tool batteries from Makita which are suitable for use with their power tools. These lithium-ion batteries are 40% lighter than a similar Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) battery and have an extended length of time during which they hold their charge.

Lithium-ion batteries have longer life spans than Ni-HH or Ni-Cad which is due to the increased number of charging cycles Lithium-ion offers and the run time between charges.

Makita battery design allows each battery cell to be kept at an optimum temperature with extends the battery life. These batteries are also lightweight and shock absorbing

This range of Li-Ion battery from Makita includes the following:
385-455 – (194204-5) 3Ah Li-ion 18V Power Tool Battery, for use with Makita 18 V LXT Power Tools

667-4064 – (194065-3) 3Ah Li-ion 14.4V Power Tool Battery, for use with Makita 14.4 V LXT Power Tools

Features and Benefits:

5x Lower self-discharge keeps battery cells active and ready for use, even after long periods of storage
Built-in shock absorbing features protect the battery
16 firm holding contact terminals reduce the risk of power loss/fluctuation in high vibration work environments
Optimum charging system - Battery's built-in memory chip communicates with the charger to maximize battery life using 3 active controls (Current, Voltage and Thermal)
2000+ cycles tested under load
Balanced cooling around the battery – air flow around the battery allows each cell to be kept at the most suitable temperature which extends the battery life

Typical Application:

Power tool batteries, commonly known as cordless tool batteries, have been designed to work with many cordless power tool types e.g. power drills, impact drivers, angle grinders, jigsaws, torches etc. and allow to continue work without having to wait for the current battery to charge. Batteries coming from the same manufacturers and with the same voltage rating as power tools, are typically compatible with each other, eliminating the need of buying dedicated batteries for each tool. Batteries are available in various voltages and capacity.

Power Tool Batteries are commonly used by:
• Builders
• Mechanics
• Engineers
• Constructors
• Electricians
• Plumbers
• DIYers


How long does it take to fully charge the battery?
The battery charge time may vary and fully depends on charger capabilities.
385-455 – 18V Lithium-ion 3.0Ah (BL1830) battery has a 22 minute charge time
667-4067 – 14.4 V Lithium-Ion 3.0Ah (BL1430) has a 22 minute charge time
