As a result, high temperatures occur in the battery, so that the battery life is extended, and the charging process is accelerated. The Makita 18v 3.0Ah Lithium-Ion battery contains high energy density technology. Being Lithium-Ion, the BL1830B has no memory effect and is much lighter than other battery chemistries.
22 minute re-charge in DC18RC charger as well as battery capacity indicator LED's which show you how much power you have left at the touch of a button. Fits all Makita 18v LXT Li-Ion tools with Makita'Star' technology so if your tool also has a'Star' you can be assured of battery protection. The Li-ion range delivers 430% more working capacity during it's lifetime compared to Ni-Cad and is 40% Lighter than Ni-MH. The Li-ion has minimal depletion of power during use or in storage over it's lifetime.
When new, these batteries require approx. 6 to 8 full charges to reach their optimum performance. Unbeatable performance with 100% genuine Makita batteries. Battery capacity indicator LED's show how much juice you have left on demand.
Long battery life, takes over 2,000 charges. 18v, 3Ah gives plenty of power. Charge Time (DC18SD): 60 mins. Charge Time (DC18RA/DC18RC/DC18RD): 22 mins. Fast charging - charges Li-Ion 3.0Ah battery in only 22 minutes.
Built-in CPU - gathers information from the battery's memory chip to determine optimum charging method. Forced air cooling fan - cools the battery to minimise charging time. Digital power display identifies the condition of the battery and charging condition.
Makita's 18v & 14v batteries have a built in memory chip that records the battery usage history. While the battery is connected it will transmit the data to the charger. A great advantage of Lithium Ion technology is that it provides the user with the possibility to charge the batteries anytime, without any need to wait for their complete power deployment.
A great improvement compared to older technologies like Ni-Cad. Cell Capacity: 1.5-5.0Ah. Charge Time (1.5Ah): 15 mins. Charge Time (2.0Ah): 18 mins.
Charge Time (3.0Ah): 22 mins. Charge Time (4.0Ah): 36 mins. Charge Time (5.0Ah): 45 mins.
