Hey Walt, some people have tried putting their rechargeable batteries in the freezer to try and extend the life of the batteries. I've only heard that this solution has had limited results (may or may not work). The biggest problem with rechargeable batteries is that they have a life cycle, (can only be recharged, depending on the battery, a few hundred times to maybe several hundred times, and then they will no longer hold a charge). Try contacting Makita and inquire about getting new batteries. They may still carry them. Otherwise, it maybe time to invest in a new drill. Sorry that that I can't offer a better solution but people have tried just about everything they can think of to increase the life of their batteries and have not succeeded.

Makita battery


Check that you have the correct battery in the charger as the charger will not charge any type of battery, only the battery type listed on the panel.

Have you checked the voltage at the batry when running? Sounds like alternator is not working properly. The battry is only used for starting, once started the alternator runs all the accesories & charges the battry. If not chargeing the vehicle will **** battry power. You may have a good battry surface voltage but a bad battry. The battry should be load tested as well.

Makita Drill's battery is stuck on


IT IS THE DUST THAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM. YOU COULD TRY HOLDING THE LATCH BUTTON ON THE BATTERY AND THEN BANG THE BACK OF THE BATTERY AGAINST THE WORK SURFACE TO KNOCK IT OFF. CLEAN IT UP AND TRY A LIGHT SPRAY OF MR SHEEN. DUST WILL STICK TO ANY WET SURFACE SO NOT A LOT.

A 12 volt battery needs about 13.5 volts to reach a full charge. It should stay at what ever voltage you bring it up to, with no load connected.
Most gate controls are solar charged and should be fine under normal circumstances.
Charge the battery with a regular 'automotive' type charger and then test it with a few cycles, open and closing gate.
Also check voltage from charger at gate...

I have a mikita 12 volt and when I charge it it wont hold charge.


do you have a volt meter toi check the charger voltage? if so then read the voltage out of the charger, it should be 1 or 2 volts higher than the listing 12v would be 13 or 14 volts. if it's working you probally do have a bad battery. if the charger is out then you have a bad charger.
