Get outside with Outdoor Adventure, a new series of cordless products that operate within the LXT® system. Outdoor Adventure™ products feature advanced technology, delivering maximum performance and efficiency for the outdoors. Makita offers hundreds of products within the 18V LXT® system so you can create your own adventure.
The Outdoor Adventure™ 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion 4.0Ah Battery charges faster and works longer than standard lithium-ion batteries, giving the Outdoor Adventure™ tools and equipment unmatched performance. The Outdoor Adventure™ 4.0 Ah battery combines more run time (35% more run time per charge than the Makita BL1830 battery) with a category-leading charge time of only 40 minutes, so it spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
The Outdoor Adventure™ 18V LXT® 4.0Ah battery (BL1840) is compatible only with Star Protection tools, indicated by the Star Symbol™ and/or Yellow Battery Receiver under the tool.
Outdoor Adventure™ 18V Lithium-Ion batteries resist self-discharge so they’re ready for use even after long periods of storage. The Makita Rapid Optimum Charger (sold separately) is a smart-charging system that communicates with the battery during the charging process to monitor current, voltage, and temperature. This advanced charging technology helps optimize battery life and deliver a faster charge. In addition, the Charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster and more efficient charging, even in hot weather conditions.
For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls™. STAR Protection is communication technology that allows the tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging, and overheating. Makita, the innovation leader in cordless tool technology, has the world’s cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V lithium-ion slide-style battery.
