LXT Lithium-Ion battery and optimum charging system produces 280 percent total lifetime work with 2x more cycles. 5x Lower self-discharge keeps battery cells active and ready for use, even after long periods of storage.
Charging at any time will have no effect on the battery. Built-in shock absorbing features protect the battery. Sixteen firm holding contact terminals reduce the risk of power loss/fluctuation in high vibration work environments.
Battery's built-in Memory Chip communicates with the charger to maximize battery life using 3 Active Controls (Current, Voltage & Thermal). Battery suitable for all Makita li-ion LXT 18 volt machines.
Star Protected Makita Battery
The demanding applications you take on every day are also demanding on your cordless tools and batteries. You rely on your tools, so Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls . STAR Protection is communication technology that allows the tool and battery to monitor conditions and exchange data in real time to protect against Overloading, Over-Discharging and Over-heating. Look for Makita tools and batteries with the STAR and get these protection features.
Makita Star Battery - Overload Protection
High-drain applications require maximum battery power. Makita tools and batteries are engineered for industrial applications, but sustained peak demand can overload the tool. Makita s STAR Protection Computer Controls allow the battery and tool to communicate and protect your tool and battery from overload by cutting power when put under abnormally high current draw.
Makita Star Battery - Overcharge Discharge Protection
Lithium-ion batteries are engineered for longer, sustained performance. But running a battery until it s dead empty can damage the cells. Makita STAR Protection Computer Controls monitor battery charge capacity, and if the battery is too low to complete the application it will cut power in order to extend battery life.
Makita Star Battery - Over heat protection
Extreme heat is the enemy of ALL batteries. It can make batteries charge slower, damage battery cells, and reduce battery life. Makita STAR Protection Computer Controls monitor battery heat during operation. If the battery reaches a certain level of heat it will cut power to the tool.
This battery is suitable for the following machines:
- BDF451RFE , BDF451RFE3
- BDF452RFE , BDF452REF3
- BDA350 , BDA351

- LXT600 , LXT400 , LXT202
Includes the DC18RD Dual port charger, capable of charging two Makita 18V batteries, simultaneously, and it will recharge both in the same time as with their actively cooled rapid charger.
The range of Makita machines utilising two 18v Lithium-Ion batteries to generate a mighty 36v of power is expanding quickly. Therefore the new twin-port fast charger that takes just 22 minutes to fully charge two 18v 3.0Ah batteries will prove invaluable. This new twin-port charger will charge two 4.0Ah batteries in 36 minutes.
With an LED charging display, and full charge audible alert, the Makita DC18RD fast charger has a forced cooling system for battery protection and a built-in electronic current limiter for overload protection.
