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-Ion Cordless series. Three years after its debut, Makita's LXT series has grown from seven 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 NiCd batteries, Makita's 18-volt lithium-ion batteries have 40% 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--2.5 times more than NiCd. In addition, built-in shock absorbing features help protect the battery, and 16 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 faster: 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. Makita's growing line of LXT cordless tool solutions features a wide range of industrial-quality power tools, including driver-drills, impact drivers, impact wrenches, saws, grinders, screwguns, rotary hammers, and more. The LXT series also offers a jobsite radio, rechargeable flashlights, and several different combo kits.
Makita is a worldwide manufacturer of industrial-quality power tools and offers a wide range of industrial accessories. Makita applies leading-edge innovation to engineer power tools that are more compact and energy efficient, yet deliver industrial-strength power and results.
Every Makita lithium-ion tool is backed by Makita's 3-year warranty that covers repair due to defects in materials or workmanship up to three years from the date of original purchase. Makita lithium-ion batteries and chargers have a limited 1-year warranty.
