About Makita's 18-Volt Compact Lithium-Ion Cordless Tool Series
As one of the pioneers driving the cordless tool revolution, Makita changed the game with its breakthrough 18-Volt LXT lithium-in cordless series. Five years after its debut, Makita's LXT series has grown from 7 to over 35 tools, providing a wide range of cordless solutions for professional tradesmen. Makita also added 18-volt compact lithium-ion for cordless power in a more compact size.
Makita's 18-volt lithium-ion batteries and ENERGY STAR rated Optimum Charging system provide several benefits over old battery technology. When compared to traditional 18-volt NiCad batteries, Makita's 18-volt lithium-ion batteries have 40 percent less weight, longer run time, and five-times lower self-discharge to keep cells active and ready to use at any time. Makita's 18-volt lithium-ion battery delivers 2,000 cycles--two-and-a-half times more than a NiCad battery. In addition, built-in shock-absorbing features help protect the battery, and sixteen firm-holding contact terminals deliver constant high power.
During the charging process, a built-in memory chip in the battery communicates with the Optimum Charger for a more efficient charge, extending the battery life. Makita's Optimum Charger is also fast: it will charge an 18-volt LXT lithium-ion battery in just 30 minutes and an 18-volt compact lithium-ion battery in only 15 minutes. Makita also offers a Rapid Automotive Charger for 18-volt LXT and 18-volt compact lithium-ion batteries that plugs into 12-volt DC sockets equipped in most automobiles and trucks for added mobility.
