Makita 18v 4.0Ah Power Pack includes 36 Minute Fast Charger, 2 x 4.0Ah Li-ion Batteries & 1 x Small STACK Case.
The Makita DC18RC Li-ion 14.4v - 18v 240V 36 Minute Charger uses a CPU to communicate with the batteries built in memory chip during a charge cycle, which analyses the data stored in the battery chip to decide on the best charging method at that time. This innovative technology results in longer battery life.
Built in sounds on the DC18RC let you know charging status and completion. Makita Forced Air Cooling Fan technology cools the battery during charging by forcing cool air through the battery' s built-in air vents prolonging the life of the battery.
The Makita LXT BL1840 18 Volt 4.0Ah Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) batteries use Makita's optimum charging system which produces 430% more runtime, and 2x more cycles over the lifetime of the BL1840 batteries.
A 5x lower self-discharge keeps the Makita BL1840 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 and sixteen firm holding contact terminals reduce the risk of power loss/fluctuation in high vibration work environments.
The Makita BL1840 battery's built-in memory chip communicates with the charger to maximize battery life using 3 Active Controls (Current, Voltage & Thermal)
