Makita LXT 18V Lithium Ion Cordless Power Tools
Having developed and marketed the worlds first battery powered cordless power tool Makita has now become the leader in lithium ion technology for cordless power tools. Makitas new LXT Series, designed specifically for Lithium-Ion technology, is much smaller and lighter than its predecessor.
Generating power every 90 degrees instead of 180 degrees on the magnetic field , more productive power is delivered in a smaller size. The 4-pole maximum torque motor is supported with two steel ball bearings for more durability. You will appreciate the ergonomic shape which fits your hands like a glove giving you more control with an even amount of pressure. All of the LXT series power tools also have built-in high impact L.E.D. lights that will illuminate your work but, function separately from the tool.
Lithium ion technology has produced a more efficient cordless power tool and Makita is the worlds foremost producer of these tools. The Makita LXT lithium ion power tools listed below are all currently available from eBay and Amazon.
Makita LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries and Optimum Charging System produces almost three times the work over its lifetime with twice the battery cycles than traditional Ni-Cd batteries. The Makita LXT Lithium-ion batteries give the professional many benefits, such as, 1,400 battery life cycles, longer run time, 40% less weight, and 5 times lower self-discharge which keeps cells active and ready to use at any time. There is a built-in memory chip that works in conjunction with the Optimum Charger for more efficient production. Built-in shock absorbing features protect the battery, and sixteen firm holding electrical contact terminals maintain constant high power. All of these benefits are in place to ensure longer battery life.
Makitas new 45-minute Optimum Charger runs diagnostics with the LXT battery throughout the charging cycle. The built-in memory chip in the battery and the built-in CPU chip in the charger records the history and battery condition so as to select the optimal charging method. The optimal charging method with its built in fan for battery cooling, uses Active 3 Controls for current control, thermal control and voltage control. Utilizing all of these features enables the lithium ion battery to give you more work over its lifetime.
The Battery Diagnostic System developed by Makita, was put in place to assist users to get the most out of the battery life by reading the condition of the battery. What this system does is, it gives you a readout on how the battery was used. It logs each battery telling you how the battery has been used, life expectancy depending on how many times the battery has been charged, refreshes each cell for more work production, and puts all of this information in a permanent record. For professionals and industrial users with a lot of batteries, this system maximizes efficiency while increasing production.
