I am aware that i may sound like a complete novice (because i am) but is it possible to buy an 18V battery with a higher AH separately ?

Makita G-series batteries are only available in 1.3Ah.

Makita G series batteries (and only 1.3Ah at that) not compatible with other tools.

That's a good one andynicol, although you have to buy the drill bits separate.
As I mentioned in my post, I know that the batteries are not that powerful, but for the bundle and the price (after cashback Lloyds + TCB ) it's a better deal that most of the ones out there.
Anyway, thanks for your input and your good spotted deal ;)

I disagree, its not worth £100, even factoring in the accessory kit worth around £15.

I'd disregard the Makita branding on this, its only a Makita drill in name only, its nowhere near as good as there LXT range.

Why they have decided to tar there good name with cheap crap aimed purely for the DIY market is beyond me, they should bundle LXT tools with smaller batteries to keep the price down for the DIy market rather than the G-series, but hey ho.

There are other drills out there, comparable in quality and with better batteries to this, buy the accessories you require and you'd still be cheaper....

I bought the screwfix offer too with the 2 x 3.0Ah batteries. I also bought the 101 piece makita accessories set for £19.99. Worth spending the extra £30 IMO.

Yes. Although you'd have to work out which battery fits which drill (easy). Look for a drill sold as 'bare' or 'body' only.
This means just the body of the drill without the battery and charger.
Hope this helps.

Spot on.

Amazon have the trade rated brushless DHP480 with 3Ah battery, charger and macpac for £139.99.
Plenty of power, great battery life. Would be crazy to buy a G series.

Avoid the g series. I have makita lxt and it's great. There are also so many tools you can add to your set and quality is good.

False, the only battery's you can use are the white topped ones (in the pic) that only go up to 1.3ah. If using for trade get andynicol deal but if for diy id go for a bosch for £87 http://www.diy.com/departments/bosch-cordless-18v-2ah-li-ion-combi-drill-2-batteries-psb1800li-2/1131623_BQ.prd?ecamp=Seapla&ppc_type=shopping&ds_kids=92700018912028092&gclid=CNuFi6-gj9MCFWcq0wodasQOeQ&gclsrc=aw.ds.ds&dclid=CJLdr6-gj9MCFZUT0wodhqwG8w

The question was re higher output batteries but you are referring to bare units?

Makita G-series, can be all black or have a white top and are only available in 1.3Ah ;

These are NOT compatible across other Makita tools i.e. LXT range which are distinguishable with the star (newer models the star is yellow) ;

Got to be cold. No point in spending 120 on a Makita that's not the real deal.

My understanding from previous hukd's is that the makita accessory kits aren't up to much either so wouldn't really factor that in...
