What difference does the battery make other than charge time and time it …What difference does the battery make other than charge time and time it lasts? Would 2 x 1.5ah batteries not be as useful as 1 x 3.0? Cheers


For sure, you could drill and charge at the same time with 2 batteries.,....or with the 3Ah drill I linked you'd drill for twice the time and wait 22mins to charge up......The main thing for me is just that this G range of batteries can only be used on a limited range of Makita tools that accept the G battery - these are the lower budget tools Makita make whereas the LXT range of batteries fits the wide range of LXT tools, which you can buy without batteries... many people buy a drill with battery and charger then use the same battery and charger on an impact driver, saw, lamp, sander, planer and so on.

if you're not interested in expanding the tool range it makes no real odds, although I personally would get the LXT drill as it has a metal gearbox and is probably a slightly better built drill.

Good price, next cheapest is £125 on amazon
I'd spend a bit more on an LXT model with higher amperage batteries. Probably OK for DIY but the accessories are pretty hopeless. Big fan of Makita but this is a budget model.

Agreed, these use the G range of batteries and not compatible with the wide range of LXT kit.

I personally feel you'd be much better off buying the £119 Makita LXT DHP453 from Screwfix.
It's a 3Ah battery and a better drill, no extra drill bits included but that Makita drill set is very basic anyway.
If you are paying over £100 I would recommend keeping your eye out for an LXT deal. The G series some times goes on offer at b&q for as low as £70-80

Great explaination thanks

Sure thing, there's nothing wrong with this G series drill, it'll probably be fine for most DIY chores, it's just worth knowing that for not much more you can get an LXT drill that then opens up a wide range of other products that all use the same battery and charger. I started with a drill, battery, charger and then bought a planer and impact driver which can be bought quite cheaply as 'bare' models that don't come with battery/charger.
I bought this drill in homebase at Christmas for £75. My mate wanted it, not heard anything feedback on it, so I'm assuming if wasn't to impressed with it
This is a terrible deal. Smallest possible batteries and low torque
This or dewalt 2059?

That model seems to be a kit for a drill and an impact driver?

Definitely hold off and pay a bit more for LXT if you can - the range of tools is superb e.g hedge trimmer for £50 as a bare tool.

You can buy 1.5 and 2Ah batteries in LXT reasonably cheap - they won't drive all the tools like the circular saw but on drills and impact drivers they last ages and make to tool lighter to use.
