    how much is the battery?
    Aaronnnn

    how much is the battery?



    around £31-32
    Sorry but there is little point in investing in 10.8v tools.
    £20 more gets you an 18v LXT drill which fits in with the current Makita range
    find a 2nd hand charger and a Chinese clone battery, and you'll be much happier.

    cordfree tools are a great investment, but not if you start buying into the domestic range, because you'll never get any 2nd hand trade tools

    If you're offering advice you should get the name right

    I personally think 10.8v tools are great at home for most jobs, mainly because I rarely plan ahead and find that the drill needs charging when I go to use it...no problem, 30 mins on charge and crack on. Time saved is an investment to me

    Where can I get the 18v for £20 more?
    Makita DHP482 (z model) is often around the £45 mark on eBay but if you need a smaller & lighter drill then this is ideal

    It depends what your use will be, If you were drilling all day ni-cd batteries would be a nightmare, especially with the charge time. I have one similar to that and I don't use it...it works ok for very very light use but I got sick of spending more time charging it than using it.

    I don't think there are many folk who see purchasing power tools as an 'investment'.

    These little 10.8v drivers are great for tight spaces, ideal for kitchen fitters and flat pack furniture builders.

    Agree with the other comment re 18v LXT range though, an 18v LXT (combi IMO) drill would be better if its your only power tool, as this isn't really a 'drill' per se, more a driver, but if your after a little driver for tight spaces, or drill lots of pilot holes, the 10.8v (and 12v) are a perfect addition to a tool collection.

    Look for a BL1820 2.0Ah,
    that'll power most of the smaller 18v LXT drills
    normally around £23 but I think I paid less.


    Andy re: investment
    I don't mean as a financial thing, but as sticking to one range of tools.
    Say someone is doing a bit of DIY, they may well end up with a hammer drill, impact driver, multitool, jigsaw, circular saw.
    Now you can go out and pick up whatever tat B&Q are offloading this week, or you can poke around eBay and pick up the Makita 18v cordless tools for around £40-60 each.
    Tradespeople seem to offload their kit regularly, and being the pro range most of it is still fine to use if you don't mind a bit of scuffing.
    So instead of having five different chargers and battery systems, or trying to track down a rare as hens teeth 10.8 battery for a Bosch tool, you can just have a box of BL1820's that fit everything you've got.


    Makita also make the confusing G range which I think B&Q sell? but they require a similar looking but different 18v battery, which is a shitty move by Makita I think

    I point this out in power tool threads often, Makita LXT range is so vast I couldn't recommend it enough.

    Re smaller Ah batteries, I also point this out to folks justifying paying extra for a 3/4/5.0Ah battery, for the average DIYer, several smaller Ah batteries, even 1.5Ah, is far better than the equivalent in 1 battery, much easier on the arm/wrist as its lighter and they have a spare(s) should one develop a fault, having a 5.0Ah battery is great but you need a backup should it develop a fault, opposite for tradesman of course as there looking for battery life first and foremost and any tradesman worth his salt will have multiple batteries.

    Makita G range is a complete con, very clever marketing by akita in that your average Joe is duped into buying what he thinks is a trade rated power tool, when it is far from it, and spares are all but non-existent, no doubt they've gained extra sales BUT the flip side is they may just put folks off when the tool fails and a bare unit to replace it can't be had or same scenario for the battery when it fails.

    I stand by what I said re the smaller 10.8/12v tools though, not if its your only tool, a combi would be better, but as an addition to a tool collection there great to have, great for tight spaces and small jobs.

    I'd avoid the cheaper non-Makita batteries available on eBay etc, they don't last, your much better purchasing genuine LXT batteries.

    As horsey says, look out for smaller Ah batteries, BL1815 (1.5Ah) and BL1820 (2.0Ah) can be had cheaply, and much better to have spares, 1.5/2.0 are ample for the basic tasks around the home, especially if you have a couple, lighter to use as well.
