Makita 4Ah 18v LXT Battery & Charger Kit inc 2x 4.0Ah Batteries & DC18RC Charger

Makita 4Ah 18v LXT Battery & Charger Kit inc 2x 4.0Ah Batteries & DC18RC Charger

This kit contains 2x Makita BL1840B 18v 4.0Ah Li-Ion batteries with LED state of charge indicator and a DC18RC 18v intelligent charger.

The Makita 18v 4.0Ah Lithium-Ion battery contains high energy density technology. Being Lithium-Ion, the BL1840B has no memory effect and is much lighter than other battery types. Fits all Makita 18v Li-Ion tools. Battery has the Makita 'Star' technology so if your tool also has a 'Star' you can be assured of battery protection.

The DC18RC has a cooling fan and Active 3 Controls. This means that during the loading of the charging voltage, charging current, and temperature is held in the holes. The cooling system blows cool air into the battery. As a result, high temperatures occur in the battery, so that the battery life is extended, and the charging process is accelerated.
