Makita 194204-5 18V 3.0Ah Li-Ion Battery
A necessary purchase
The original battery which came with the Makita drill set failed (over-worked) and as it is not practical to try to work with just one battery I asked my Manager if I could purchase a replacement. The new battery is on charge now and I am hoping it will last for many years to come. Price-wise Screwfix was competitive and I knew that the battery would be brand new - hence my purchase...

great value for money
could not fault this battery i use it in my combi drill. one battery should last a finish joiner well over a day at the charge time is great makita say it should take 22 minutes but in my experience it usually take slightly less time

Not the lightest but the best
Not the lightest battery in it's class but by far the best.
Compared to the DeWalt, Hitachi & Bosch this lasts a lot longer under heavy use. It charges quicker too.
Just a shame Screwfix sell it at twice the price of most other retailers.....

3amp lithium makita battery
Item is powerfull but not as light weight as as the equivilant dewalt battery but holds charge well and is easy to attach and remove from the tools. with the right charger it can be charged in around 25min which is handy when your in the middle of a job and the battery dies. Run time depends on the tool your using it with for me i used it with an angle grinder cutting concrete and it was used for about half an hour and still had enough charge to run my drill for another hour for screw drivering
