Makita has launched its largest capacity battery to date with an impressive 288 watt-hours of energy. The 8.0Ah BL4080F offers the longest runtime for its XGT products, especially useful when used on higher drain machines. The 40VMax XGT BL4080F 8.0Ah battery is equipped with 20 cells in a heavy-duty and durable outer and casing, and is IPX4 rated with a water and dust-resistant triple layer structure with enhanced terminal structure to handle any job site condition. The battery also features Makita’s digital communication function between the tool, battery and charger to optimise the charging process, reduce charge times and protect the battery from damage. This real-time digital communication actively monitors heat, overload, and over-discharge as well as delivering up to 2X longer sustained power during demanding applications.
