FAQ about Makita 40V

The new Makita XGT 40v tools won't be compatible with 18v LXT batteries (and vice versa) but a charging adaptor has been developed which will enable users to recharge both types of battery from the same charger, so you'll be able to keep clutter down to a minimum when using both ranges simultaneously.

Watt-hours is a measure of energy, and Makita describes it as the amount of performance performed by the tool. The 18V combo kit comes with 2x 5.0Ah batteries, and the 40V Max XGT (36V nominal) combo kit comes with 2x 2.5Ah batteries.

The Makita 40V Max XGT impact driver showed us better performance and strength than their 18V flagship.


There seems to be two main causes as to why your Makita 40v batteries die. The first is overheating which is due to several reasons. The second main cause is that the first two cells fail due to them being used to power the circuity of the battery management chip.

Makita's 40V Max XGT 2.5Ah battery. Shown here is Makita's 18V 5Ah battery. Both batteries have (10) 18650-sized cells.

From 1.5Ah to 6.0Ah, giving you the runtime you require, the Makita 18v cordless battery range is both comprehensive and technologically advanced. Makita 18v Lithium-Ion batteries allow an anytime charge with no memory effect and no discharging required.

Today,Makita all BMSs to take care of Li-ion cells will stop charging the tool's Li-ion cells when it's around 95% fully charged. So, keeping the power tool plugged-in will not hurt the battery.

Every Makita® Lithium-Ion Tool, Battery, Charger, and Pneumatic Nailer is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase.

Don't Leave makita Battery on Charger: Unless your tool instructions specifically say to store the battery on the charger, be sure to remove it after charging is complete. Overcharging can damage a battery and shorten its life, and not all chargers shut off automatically.

No. The new XGT platform has a new style battery. Only the XGT 40 Volt batteries will work on these devices.


Makita batteries are not all the same: larger batteries are intended for the LXT range and offer more power than the CXT range. The G-Series offers the same power as the LXT range, but is not as efficient.


That is something you have to answer yourself, I have always bought the Makita branded batteries and haven't had any problems. I also wait and look for good buys on the Makita branded accessaries

But the real news is the multi-voltage capability. If you're running both Makita 18V and 12V Max tools, you can charge both packs on one charger. There's just one caveat – you need to be running 18V LXT and 12V CXT slide packs. The older 12V stick packs won't charge on this system.

This inverter allow you to use a Makita 18V battery and convert it to 110VAC up to 150 watt (initial surge up to 300 watt). This small inverter generator is good for small household items such as lights, small TVs, laptops, fans, USB chargers, etc.
