Makita Fast-Charging 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Battery Delivers Longer Run Time

The 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 6.0Ah battery, which is compatible with over 150 Makita 18V cordless solutions, reaches a full charge in only 55 minutes.

For added convenience, the BL1860B has an LED charge level indicator.

Makita U.S.A., Inc. has expanded its 18V lithium-ion cordless tool platform with the 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 6.0Ah battery (model BL1860B), which is compatible with over 150 Makita 18V cordless solutions.

The BL1860B is engineered with more run time, but with the same weight and dimensions as the lower-capacity 3.0Ah, 4.0Ah and 5.0Ah LXT batteries. It reaches a full charge in only 55 minutes, and for added convenience, it has an on-board LED charge level indicator.

“The new 18 volt six amp-hour battery will create new standards in cordless efficiency and productivity,” said Carlos Quintana, senior product manager, cordless, Makita U.S.A. “With two six amp hour batteries, an 18-volt X2 tool can meet and exceed corded tool performance, but with the same fast-charging 18-volt batteries that (they) use on their core 18-volt tools like drills and impact drivers, as well as flashlights, fans, radios and many more.”

Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries deliver consistent power and run time in extreme temperatures, even in winter (-4°F/-20°C). The impact-resistant outer case and shock-absorbing inner-liner are engineered to protect the battery, and each battery has 16 contact terminals to maintain a constant connection with the tool to help prevent power loss or fluctuation, even during high-vibration applications. The Makita Rapid Optimum Charger (sold separately) is a smart-charging system that communicates with the battery during the charging process to monitor current, voltage and temperature. This advanced charging technology helps optimize battery life and deliver a faster charge. In addition, the charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster and more efficient charging, even in hot weather conditions.
