Are they still selling fakes?
Great price if you get a genuine one
Wow, people who bought in 2012 have got to be pretty p!$$€d.
At this price it's almost worth buying them for the individual high discharge cells. If they're genuine that is...

Very difficult. I spoke to Makita about some 5Ah I got from Amazon at around £26 each which was a bargain, they told me even they have difficulty telling good fakes against real ones (from photos alone). You would have to take them to a Makita dealer for a proper check.
matches the lowest I paid back in September
If you buy it from amazon itself or from a third party that sells tools and has a real shop that sells lots of branded tools you should be pretty safe, buy it from some Chinese third party seller then you are asking for trouble.
This price again! Must resist.

Sad to hear about the counterfeits though.
A shame about lots of counterfeits being about but heat added for the price. Hopefully a genuine battery gets sent from Amazon for those ordering.

I ordered last time the deal was on but haven't had to recharge the battery yet. Just tested it in a torch and used a little in an impact driver so far.
back to normal price
£32.99 cheapest now :-(

This is interesting. I upgraded my entire set to 5ah batteries around 6 months ago and all were purchased from Amazon.

Only a few days ago 1 of my newer batteries is refusing to charge. I’ve never had this problem before, I wonder if it’s a fake.

Would Amazon or Makita cover me, if it’s found to be a fake?

All depends on whether you bought from Amazon itself, or a 3rd party. Even if it's genuine Makita then your first port of call is still Amazon as your contract is with/through them.

Amazon would but Makita would confiscate it. I was offered a refund the other day for the 5Ah’s I purchased in July from Amazon when I told them they could be fake (info from another buyer at the same time as me), but it’s looking like they are legit at the moment. Not sure if I could be bothered to go to my nearest dealer to double check as it’s pretty far away. Hats off to Amazon though, great customer service. It was Amazon EU SarL that sold them though and not a third party.
I suspect Makita have a very high mark up on their batteries. Let’s hope competition brings the price down.

IMEO, I would go for a 5.0Ah you'll need two of these, one in the charger, one in the tool. You'll be swapping the batteries more tiems than I (as a pro tradie) have 'breaks' LOLs

You may as well just have the one, about the same money and you'll only need to swap it on your extended lunch break at 1000hrs lols

You’ll need 4x5Ah if you use the leaf blower... had a shed load to clear up this weekend and 1 set wasn’t enough!
