Makita 18V LXT Lithium‑Ion Battery and Rapid Optimum Charger Starter Pack (5.0Ah)

Build your own Makita Tool Kit with the 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Battery and Rapid Optimum Charger Starter Pack (5.0Ah). Makita offers many cordless tools available as ‘bare tools’ (tool only, no batteries or charger included). Pick up the Starter Pack, then purchase the 18V ‘bare tools’ you need to get the job done - including 18V X2 LXT Products powered by two 18V lithium-ion batteries. It's an ideal way to start building a Makita Cordless Tool System. The Makita 18V Lithium-Ion Batteries resist self-discharge so they’re ready for use even after long periods of storage. The Rapid Optimum Charger is a smart charging system that communicates with the battery during charging to monitor current, voltage, and temperature. This advanced charging technology helps optimize battery life and deliver a faster charge. The 18V Rapid Optimum Charger (DC18RC) provides tool users unparalleled charging efficiency so their batteries spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls. Star Protection is a communication technology that allows the tool and battery to exchange data in real-time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging, and overheating. Makita, the innovation leader in cordless tool technology, has the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries.
Features
The 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 5.0Ah battery reaches a full charge in 45 minutes or less. It provides up to 65 percent more run time per charge compared to BL1830. The integrated LED battery charge level indicator allows the user to monitor battery charge. The battery delivers consistent power and run time in extreme temperatures, even in winter (negative 4 degrees F or negative 20 degrees C). It is equipped with Star Protection Computer Controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging, and overheating. The Impact-resistant outer case and shock-absorbing inner liner are engineered to protect the battery. Sixteen contact terminals maintain a constant connection with the tool to help prevent power loss or fluctuation, even during high-vibration applications. The battery resists self-discharge and remains ready for use even after long periods of storage. It is compatible only with Star Protection tools, indicated by the Star Symbol and Yellow Battery Receiver under the tool. The Makita 18V Lithium-Ion is the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. The Makita Rapid Optimum Charger communicates with the battery’s built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage, and temperature. The built-in fan circulates air through the battery during the charging process to cool the battery for faster charge time. It optimizes battery life by actively controlling current, voltage, and temperature.
Technology
LXT Tool users who unplug the cord with Makita 18V LXT experience new levels of convenience, efficiency, and productivity. Makita created the 18V Lithium-Ion cordless tool category in 2005, and today it is the world’s largest 18V cordless tool line-up. Makita’s leading technology gives tool users unmatched performance and breadth of line, with innovation in motor and battery technology that is obliterating industry standards – and leaving old thinking behind. With high amp-hour batteries, efficient brushed and brushless motors, and 36V (18V X2) LXT technology, Makita 18V LXT tools not only meet corded demands, they can exceed the performance of corded, all while remaining in a single cordless platform powered by the industry's fastest-charging 18V lithium-ion batteries. When the battery and charger exchange information, the result is a more efficient charging process. Makita created Active 3 Controls, a communications technology that monitors key conditions of the lithium-ion battery during charging. With Active 3 Controls, the battery and charger communicate through the built-in chip inside the battery and exchange information to monitor and control current, voltage, and temperature. The efficient management of these three conditions is engineered to help optimize the charging process, so your battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
