The coolest charger
on December 29, 2012
Makita hit a home run with their charger and batteries. Starting with the charger, they have something that no one else has, yet it is so useful and amusing; when you insert a battery for charging, it plays a small part of a famous song, when charging is completed, it plays a longer version of the song. One complaint I do have, and this seems to be common with all manufacturers...is it asking too much to have an on and off switch? Is that so hard? These chargers are the only electrical equipment that I know of that has plugging in and unplugging serve as the on and off switch.
Well, on to the batteries... phenomenal...they hold their charge well...very well. They may just sit on the shelf for months and months, yet they lose little if any charge...this combo is a winner!
