Why Choose Makita Cordless Machines?

Rechargeable lithium ion (li-ion) batteries are now widely used for everything from portable electronics to electric vehicles, power tools and garden machinery. Battery technology has advanced significantly over the past two decades with lithium ion replacing the previous generation of nickel–cadmium (NiCad) and nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries. One of the key advantages of the li-ion technology is that the batteries are more ‘energy dense’ which allows greater power and capacities from a smaller pack. This technology has been developed over many years by Makita to perfect their cordless power tool and garden machinery range. Offering many benefits to the user, these batteries make machines much lighter and easier to use – lithium-ion is around 40% lighter than NiCad batteries making machine more comfortable with improved handling and reduced user fatigue during use. The advantage these machines have over their petrol counterpart is they take away the need to store […]
