Summary: Fast and easy to use charger. Tells you everything you want to know and is does not let you make an error . More then a charger , it tells you battery condition and time to replace along with battery fast track charge.
Summary: I recently moved to a new house and realized i left my charger at the old place. I was called later to be informed it had been stolen :( Looking around for a new charger brought me prices of a new drill basically. The cheapest you will find this charger is about $80. ToolUp sold it for $29!! After the shipping cost it was still 50% less than anywhere i had seen it. The shipping was incredibly fast too.
Summary: I search the internet at several different sites. There are sites that charge as much as $100.00 dollars plus for this charger. Amazon.com had the best price at this time around $50.00 dollars. This charger is amazing it charges my batteries in 15 minutes. I have a De Walt it takes several hours to charge the batteries.
Summary: So, it does a nice,quick job of charging, but the internal circuitry seems a bit temperamental--a quick web search will reveal a couple of common problems. Mine recently died after less than a year of light use--I'll give Makita one more chance because I really like my Makita drill.
Summary: I have this charger from a combo pack with 3 tools from Amazon. Battery wise I use 2 1.5's and a 3.0 lith for them and probably have 30 charges on each with no problems, very fast recharge times! One tip is that this charger can play short music/sounds to alert you when recharge is complete. To activate simply slide a battery in, eject WITHIN 5 seconds and reinsert battery immediately. You can do this several times in a row to cycle through which sound you prefer.
