Included in Makita’s LXT702 tool kit is the LXT Rapid Optimum Battery Charger and two LXT Lithium-Ion 3.0Ah batteries. The charger comes with a good cooling fan to allow for quicker recharge when the batteries are low. The one other nice feature on the charger is the display guide. This guide on the face of the charger makes it easy for the user to keep the batteries charged and in good shape. When you buy the package, you will see for yourself what we mean!
Makita has a nice lip on their batteries, so when you slide them into the tool, it will stay in place. We have seen some manufacturers use a small lip which doesn’t offer much surface to meet the battery and the tool. The Makita battery has a lip that is almost the whole width of the battery, so if the tool drops or you hit the tools on something, chances are the battery will stay in place.
