Product Description

The Hitachi EBM1830 18-Volt Lithium-Ion 3.0 Ah HXP Battery features the revolutionary Hitachi HXP Lithium-Ion technology. This advanced technology delivers a battery that is 50-percent lighter than an average NiCd battery, with a longer overall battery life and a longer run time than any other technology on the market. The HXP battery features a specialized internal circuitry system that is equipped with a current interruption and detection system, thermal protector, and an electronic switch to protect the battery against overcharge and discharge. The EBM1830 provides a steady level of power during the entire usage, ensuring the battery's full potential every time. This battery has a recharge life of approximately 1300 to 1500 times, as opposed to an average of 500 times for NiCd or NiMH batteries. It is important to fully charge your battery before attempting to use it in your power tools. Recharging New Batteries: What to Expect The internal chemical substance of your new batteries is not activated, thus the electric discharge might be low when using them the first or second time. This is a temporary phenomenon and is not cause for alarm. The normal time required for recharging will be restored by recharging the battery 2-3 times. How to Make Your Battery Perform Longer The best way to maximize the life of your battery, is to follow two easy steps. First of all, remember to recharge your battery before it becomes completely exhausted. When you feel that the power of the tool becomes weaker, stop using the tool and recharge the battery. If you continue to use the tool and exhaust the electric current, the battery may be damaged and its life will become shorter. Secondly, you should always avoid recharging your batteries at high temperatures. A rechargeable battery will be hot immediately after use. If a battery is recharged while it's still hot, its internal chemical substance will deteriorate, and the battery life will be shortened.

Better reliability, less weight, no memory problems.
Stephen Vivona
I would like to know exactly what is the difference in weights between 1.5 Ah and 3.0 Ah batteries.

Something is just not right with this product manufacturing, distribution and sales.

Recently I upgraded all my cordless tools from older, heavier batteries to newer, lighter LI-Ion batteries. My new Hitachi drills all came with the smaller batteries, and I noticed that under heavy loads (I was putting in a deck and a huge deer-fenced garden) that the smaller batteries would quit fairly quickly. I have one of these larger batteries, and the difference is amazing! These batteries seem to go on and on and on and I am now upgrading to buy this two-pack so I can spend more time on the projects and less time on the charging. These batteries don't weigh much more than the smaller ones, but the trade off on duration is worth any extra weight!

These work good, last a long time, and charge pretty quick too. A lot of power for the small size

I converted my Hitachi tools to Lithium. Well worth the investment. You have to get used to the cycle meaning when they are going dead your tools just quit they don't just get weaker. Great investment so far

After checking several sites, this site provided the exact match for the batteries I needed at a reasonable price. When they arrived (within a few days) they looked brand new and have worked well with no problems.

In June 2010, I purchased a 6 tool package that came with these same two Hitachi EMB1830 18V 3.0Ah Li-ion HXP batteries. I am a very light user. I stored away the tools for the past 6 weeks with both batteries fully charged. Now today, March 18, 2011, both batteries are dead and will not charge. Each battery shows "broken" on the charger indicator. I charged a borrowed battery on my charger and am using that battery. I've tried multiple times since to charge the original two batteries without success.

If you really want to risk disappointment and waste your money as well as having worthless tools without dependable Hitachi HXP EBM1830 batteries, go ahead and buy them.

AMENDED REVIEW - NOVEMBER 11, 2011:

Over the past year, I have purchased 4 Hitachi EBM1830 batteries. Only one has remained useful. Three have each quickly broken. Two were replaced with new batteries and those refused to charge within a month or so. I had purchased a complete set of Hitachi wireless tools, so I need the batteries or am stuck with a bunch of useless tools. So, I purchased another new Hitachi EBM1830 from Amazon receiving it on September 19, 2011. I am a light user. I charged it and used it for about 10 minutes. A week later, I used it for about 5 minutes and then charged it again. I store the battery in a covered garage separate from the charger. The first week of October, I used it for about 10 minutes and stored it away in the garage. On October 15, it would not charge and the charger indicates it as broken. Hitachi battery sales seem fraudulent. Something is just not right with this product manufacturing, distribution and sales.

AMENDED REVIEW - MARCH 18, 2013:

It has now been almost 1 and 1/2 years since.

I want to rebut some of the claims here that discount these batteries as being weak or inadequate. I don't want to cast aspersions at these reviewers but they seem to be written by amateur DIY'ers and weekend homeowner handymen.

I'm a retired maintenance man who took care of a 130,000 sq ft multi use commercial building, everything from as simple as hanging a picture to building or removing divider (non load bearing) walls to keeping all of the mechanical, ventilating (HVAC) and other machinery, pumps, etc running. Among the many power tools I used I had 3 Hitachi cordless - a DV18DL hammer drill, CR18DL recip saw and a WH18DL impact driver - and used these batteries in all three. These batteries never failed to give me the power I needed to complete my jobs - sure, they would run down, but all batteries do, and not until after I had a good long run time with them.

I still have the tools and batteries and although I don't use then daily as I once did I still don't have any problems with them. Even after sitting unused in my basement workshop for some time they still deliver the power and dependability I need when I have an occasion to use them. They will still be holding a charge and deliver the power and length of usage I want without any decrease in performance.

As I said, I don't want to cast aspersions at those who gave these batteries a poor review but from my use as a professional I never had any problems with these batteries.

I almost tossed my Hitachi drill because the batteries are just worthless and cost a lot if you can find them. Just before tossing it after buying a bosh drill set, I saw these batteries and ordered a few and shortly after I had an all day big project where they worked flawlessly and longer life than the original batteries. I am now going to start checking these batteries regularly to see if my fail like I see in these reviews. I will update my review later after another summer of use or beforehand if they are dead, but for now l am happy with them.
