Makita LXT 18V 6Ah Battery Reviews

Makita have proven once again they are fierce competitors in the power tool market. With the release of the Makita LXT 6Ah Battery they are one of only a couple of manufacturers to do so. The 6Ah battery boasts a new 4 bar battery indicator and longer run times, whilst maintaining the same weight as the 3Ah Makita battery.

When paired with a Makita fast charger the 6Ah battery can be charged in under 55 minutes.  With its advanced charging technology, the Makita charger helps optimise battery life and deliver a faster charge.

The Makita 18V 6Ah Battery is compatible with all current LXT power tools, over 125 at current. On top of this the back catalogue of Makita Star Protected tools (indicated by a Star Symbol or Yellow Battery Receiver) are also suited.


  • Battery - 18V Lithium Ion

    What can I say? The fuel tank for the best cordless tools on the planet just got more energy dense. I will be picking these up at my earliest convenience. The new 2.0-5.0 batteries have been stellar! I love the 4 bar gauges on them. Finally the best Powertool company got on board. After using the 2.0 and the 4.0 with fuel gauges, I don’t want to use the others anymore. Just a little mental thing it guess. The ones with gauges have cells made in Japan. Maybe you wonder if it makes any difference. I got 10 years out of my lxt 3.0 batteries that came from Japan. Makes me want these all the more

    Got my hands on an early release of the Makita 6Ah Battery and I was not disappointed! The 6Ah runtime was unbelievable on my Makita LXT 18V tools. There was a noticeable improvement in runtime and the fact I didn’t need to change and charge batteries as often is a big bonus when speed and efficiency are important. Very Impressed with the Makita 6Ah battery.

    Bought myself two 6Ah batteries from Amazon in the US and I could not be more pleased with the performance. They last forever! Highly recommended. Kenny – Builder
