Genuine Makita 5ah battery, does what it’s supposed to. Price wise, it’s the cheapest I’ve been able to find, so pleased with my purchase and customer service from FFX.

CP, 23/05/2023

Bought this for my Makita Lxt Hedge Trimmer and my Makita tyre inflator, does the job nicely. Thank you FFX. 10/10.

Anne Christian, 18/05/2023

so so good

sashab, 17/05/2023

I haven't actually checked its capacity but guess it's about right judging by charge-up time. I've been using Makita cordless tools for many years with only one battery failure and that was after many charge-discharge cycles, I think these batteries are very robust.

Owen, 02/05/2023

Great product

Ian Leishman, 13/04/2023

It is a battery

Mr Brian Lowe, 05/04/2023

Always use FFX, great company and never let down.

Good quality battery as usual

Gary Bannerman, 08/03/2023

Reliability gusranteed

Malcred, 10/02/2023

I decided to buy cordless June 2022 after discussions with some joiners. They only used cordless and only Makita. I bought a circular saw and planer. I bought my multi tool last month with no batteries so bought these two a few days later. I can't speak highly enough. Their power is amazing, charge in less than 2 hours, fit all equipment, and snap in easily! Slightly disappointed these did not come with plastic snap on covers like the others I have (protects the terminals when not fitted to a tool), but very happy otherwise.

Peter Jones, 02/02/2023

Makita 18v LXT tools are just brilliant. So many tools to run off the same battery!!

Mr kevin white, 24/01/2023

Andrew Garner, 31/08/2022

Can’t say much , good battery

Mr & Mrs Leighton, 08/06/2022

Seems well worth the extra money for a genuine battery, if bought at a reasonable price, compared to the cheaper compatable ones available. One day I will try a 'look alike' cheapo, just to compare.

R Ward-North Yorks , 01/06/2022

Does what it says

Quality, well built, worth getting a couple extra. Very happy, thanks.
