Any makita tool battery experts here?

Makita seems very confusing as they have the LXT li-ion battery which is interchangeable between tools, yet some drills seem to have some kind of round battery which must be very week considering they say the LXT has the best power to weight ratio and its far bigger than this round one.

then they have the drills at B&Q which look like they take LXT batteries but have a warning sticker on them saying they dont take LXT ones.

Any help appreciated

Non standard battery:-


LXT battery (but looks identical):-


Round battery:-


I am asking as my Dad got me the first one above from B&Q for £92 and from reading up, I will struggle to get a replacement battery.
