18V LXT System

The LXT System is the world’s largest cordless tool system that gets its power from 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. They take a user from power tools to outdoor power equipment and get the job done. Makita 18V LXT Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories. Thus, they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.

For both improved tool performance and extended battery life, both driver-drills feature Star Protection Computer Controls. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating.
