  1. Since I retired, I got in the 18650s that are in most portable tools. I have multiple chargers and dischargers for single cells. I purchase the 6.0s at a very good price, 159.00 for a set. You are right; it's my first cycle on them using on 36 volt that it pulls a lot of amps. I have a whole lot of batteries, even the 5.0s that were over five years old tested very well. Here is what I do to keep then healthy in multiple tubs and stored half charged at room temperature I baby those things. I have broken five packs that were 1.5s and 3.0s and tested them with surprising results. I would like to know they get the run time and amperage out of them. I have more homework to do.
  2. I just purchased 6.0 batteries that were on sale to make a test comparison between the many batteries I have. What I did was to put a load by using two batteries in blower XBU02PT1. To my surprise, there was a 48-second difference between my 5.0 batteries and the 6.0 mAh hour batteries lasting a little longer. Does anybody know how many amps that blower pulls? I got 11.48 minutes, and the high setting the ambient temp was 67 degrees and using aThermal Imaging Camera, the batteries at the vent hole was 109 Degrees. This was the first cycle of this. Battery I put the blower on full max. I Clamped the fan to the table and ran a timer. The 5.0 batteries ran 11.25 the 4.0 ran 8.20, and the 2.0 ran 3.31 minutes. So is the 6.0 battery worth it?
  3. Does anybody know it Makita is making a 3/8 impact gun soon. I have both the 1/2 smaller and Larger impacts.
