  1. Hi!

    I think he prefers Bosch mate
  2. haha, sorry about that BK. Not sorry....
  3. hmm, that's worth thinking about DW! I don't mind fast chargers as long as temperature is managed. A well cooled fast charger may keep the batteries cooler than a regular charger, if it does, that's better for the battery right?!
  4. Hey lads/ladettes, enjoy.
  5. Makita Battery cell 20700

    Yeah. They already pissed off users by not having backwards compatibility on their older tools with higher capacity batteries, as well as those tabs that stop users from using 1.5Ah batts on high-draw tools. AND they've never brought 2Ah slim batts to Australia and other places. Also one of the very last to put battery indicators on. Now this. C'mon Makita, pick up your battery game!

  11. Makita DGA900 - 18v X2 - 9Inch Grinder

    Hmm interesting point. I don't even know if we're getting the 18V 6.0Ah battery in Australia, so I may never know There's an interesting relationship between current output (A), heat/resistance and runtime (Ah), and it's one that I don't think I'll ever fully understand. Battery cell chemistry, who could understand it!? I've picked up that 7" 18V Metabo grinder, and you're right, the body is the same as the 5". Hope I get to review it some time ....
  12. Makita DGA900 - 18v X2 - 9Inch Grinder

    Yep, the BL Bosch on a CORE battery was the first 18V unit I've used that was about equal to my basic 720W grinder at home. Hopefully the new Dewalt 18V/20V with FV battery will too. oztooltalk is going to review the Metabo 5" with LiHD battery shortly, so I'll know the answer to that question
  13. Makita DGA900 - 18v X2 - 9Inch Grinder

    Good to know! And it's all I need too. At the end of the day, it is a little below a regular 700W electric grinder in power, which is fine for heaps of people and applications. I'm just saying that there a people who aren't satisfied with a 700W grinder, and upgrade to a 1100W - 1500W 5" grinder. These types (heavy industrial grinding) aren't going to be satisfied with the regular 18V 5".
  14. No we didn't. I have an ultra charger coming, so we'll use it in the comparison. To be honest though, we don't REVIEW chargers. Metabo told me it takes 1 hour, and I'm usually inclined to take them on their word on these things
