The BL1830 batteries from Makita are lightweight and compact. They give 430% more working capacity than the old Ni-Cad batteries and take only 22 minutes for a full charge. The Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) system hugely surpasses its counterparts (Ni-Cad & Ni-MH) for power, storage and overall life span. The Makita Li-Ion batteries have many new advantages, one being that they can be part charged at any time. Another advantage is they have a built in cut off operation meaning the battery will cut out before permanent damage is caused to flat cells.
