I checked their database and can find nothing like you described so you have me stumped but I am sure that their tech support would like to hear about this. Their number is -800-462-5482 and they are there from 7AM to 7PM EST. If you find out anything please let me know for future reference. Thanks

One question please, I have makita cordlless


according to the schematic I saw yes you can and I think that you will be pleased with its performance, their operator manual even lists the weight of tool with this battery. Makita has a 1 year limited warranty on the Li-Ion battery that you might want to consider if you have the receipt.

When plugging battery into charger the battery plays music


this is an unusual but not unheard of experience. I would try plugging the unit into a different outlet in your house, one that is not on that same circuit. If the problem presists even after that, take the unit or contact makita with the issue, they may offer you a replacement charger, its most likely not the battery.

MAKITA LXT BL1830 18V LITHIUM-ION 3.0AH BATTERY


If the charge count on the batteries is under 300, Makita will replace them. Makita has a known defect in this battery that causes the battery to shut down before it is dead. So as of now they are exchanging ones with low use.

If they are truly defective and makita won't replace, you have to open them, find the dead cell or blown fuse, and replace. Search youtube makita battery for a video on repairing this battery. But once the red and green lights on the charger flash, the the battery can't be charged on a Makita charger -- it's been locked. So use a third party charger.

I have a li-ion Makita BL1830 18V 3.0Ah battery that can't be charged...when on the charger the bottom two lights flash red..it will charge my other battery, so it doesn't seem to be the charger


Sorry Mate your battery is dead...
The makita lithium batterys dont like getting worked hard quickly.
There is a chip in them that recognice each battery to each specific charger. Try another charger. This has not worked for me. Try anyway

DC18SC CHARGER NOT WORKING


If you have an older charger with a model number that has "RA".
That is the problem. Their were some issues with that charger.
It has been replaced with a model that has a "S" at the end.


Contact Makita. Those batteries are under warranty.
