  1. Makita Battery cell 20700

    You don't really but some tools with the black star battery terminal aren't actually high drain tools.
  2. Makita Battery cell 20700

    To be fair its the older 1.3ah BL1815 with no star protection that doesn't fit on high drain tools but the newer 1.5ah BL15n does fit.
  3. Makita battery info

    Sony US18650VTC5 in the 5AH and Sony US18650VTC4 in the 4AH
  4. Makita battery info

    What batteries were they. All my 2.0s and 4.0s with fuel gauges (from 2016) have Sony cells. Two non gauge 5.0s from 2014 have the blue Samsung 25r cells. A non gauge 5.0 from 2015 has Sony cells. A 1.5 from 2015 and 1 from 2016 both have Samsung 15m cells. I have seen Sony cells in the 6.0s. I don't know about newer manufactured packs though. One thing I have noticed is that my batteries with Samsung cells have a QR code next date code and serial number and the ones with Sony cells don't have a QR code and the date code and serial number are look ingraved instead of being printed.
  5. Makita battery info

    Makita uses mostly Sony cells and some Samsung cells.

    I can think of the Milwaukee and Makita but not the Dewalt.
  9. Just curious, how does gypsum dust destroy brushless motors?
  10. Hitachi multivolt

    The new tools include: An impact driver that has 10%+ driving speed and longer run time compared to the the 18v Triple Hammer impact(with 6ah battery) A 6.5" circular saw with twice the cutting speed of their 18v brushless circular saw. 4" and 5" variable speed grinders with nearly twice the power of their 18v brushless grinders. A 6.5" sliding mitre saw. More about the first multivolt tools here: http://www.hitachi-koki.co.jp/powertools/pro/multivolt/ https://www.youtube.com/user/HitachiKokiChannel/videos
  11. Cordless Tool Trivia

    When was that?
  12. Cordless Tool Trivia

    Correct as far as I am aware.
  13. Cordless Tool Trivia

    Different colour options count as the same model (Most colour options are for the Japanese domestic market and only available outside of Japan via grey import). US and World wide model name count as the same model, eg. for Hammer drills XPH07 and DHP481 are the same model. Also when the letter L was removed from the naming scheme (eg for Hammer Drills LXPH01 and XPH01) count as the same model.

    They have more current models than that and I'm talking about all unique models ever released.
  15. Cordless Tool Trivia

    How many unique 18v brushless impact driver models has Makita ever released?
