Makita Drill Batteries
Makita Drill Batteries are usually long lasting but with almost any power source they can give up the ghost. After charging and re-chargins your makita drill batteries they tend to get worse and worse with each charge and before you know it your stuck with the prospect of either getting a new Drill, or buying some new batteries. I thought I would wite a short post explaining the best decision and why. There are numerous Makita Drill Batteries Available so I will have to generalise but for the sake of example I will take the Makita 627DWPE3 12v Drill you can buy this for 108 pounds. Its comes with three makita drill batteries as well as a charger and of course the Drill itself. To re-buy 1 drill battery for this model in particular you are looking at 27.49 if you use your makita drill for living then after a while all your drills will be getting to the same state and I would recommend just re-buying the drill with batteries as replacing all the 3 batteries is very close to the price for buying the whole set. Also bare in mind that makita drills also have a life span of there own and its just typical that they die on you as they come out of manufacturers warranty.
One tip to lengthen the life of your makita drill batteries is to try and rotate the usage of your available battery’s so each has equil use. If you know of some good places to buy Makita Drill batteries online please share with us and our visitors by posting in the comments area.
