  • question about makita lxt

    I have the makita lxt drill and impact driver with the 3ah batteries and I was wondering if the 1.5ah compact lithium batteries will work with the lxt tools I have because I was offered 2 from a friend. Are the batteries and tools interchangable with each other?

    ... I think I read that the LXT batteries will work in the Makita compact LI drills. If that's true, I would imagine the reverse would be true.

      No they don't. The 1.5AH batteries won't fit in the blue tools, but they do use the same basic slider connection. But, there is a way to modify them (involves filing some plastic) so that the 1.5's fit in the other tools.

        They don't fit but they work. Look at the battery slide rail on the tool itself. You'll notice one of the sides has a small square tab slightly wider than the rail. Just file that tab off or clip it with a knife down flush with the rail they'll fit. I did this to my LXT tools and I can share compact batteries between all the tools.
