Question about Makita 18V Cordless Lxt Lithium Ion 6 1/2" Circular Saw BSS610Z

2 Answers

Battery compatability problem. I bought the saw and batteries separately and now find that the BL1815 LXT Lithium batteriesdon't fit in the BSS610Z LXT 18v Lithium saw. I also bought the charger. Is there an adapter that will work? This sure is frustrating, time consuming, and expensive. Are the BL1830 batteries the only thing that will work? Will the DC18RA charger work with the BL1830 batteries, or do I need to buy that too. Thanks for the help.

The two are not compatable. The battery chargers are also not compatable. The main difference between the two batteries is the Amp Hours. The 1815 is only 1.5 Amp Hours and the 1830 is 3.0 Amp Hours. The slide pattern for the batteries are different respectfully. You will need a DC18SA battery charger to charge the 1830 batts.

You dont say what country you are in ,but let us assume it is u.s.a,.I would contact toolking and talk to them , another way around the problem(the long way)is to buy thecorrect tool,no matter what it is to match the odd batteries and when you haveyour tool complete you can sell off the other one in workingorder and you wont be so far out of pocket as you might be...that is what I like about de walt the batteries and charges are pretty compatable right through the range not completely but close goodluck "youdoit"

Can you fix a lithium battery?


The Makita 18V LXT Lithium - Ion Cordless Impact Driver Kit Model BTD140 us the BL1830 battery, there are several types for it, 1.5Ah, 3.0Ah, 4.0 Ah. Maybe 5.0Ah battery for it will be available. And, the inside of the BL1830 uses the 18650 battery cell. If you have a good knowledge and skill about electronic, you can buy some 18650 cell to do it yourself. If not, I suggest you to buy a brand new one.

You can buy some original battery for replacement battery for Makita BTD140 Battery

How come my lithium 18v battery (194205-3) wont fit on my new Makita 6 1/2 circular saw?


I sell & repair the Makita line of tools and the BL1830 (194205-3) battery is designed to fit on Makita's entire line of 18-volt tools. You didn't give the model number of your saw so my best suggestion is to make sure the saw is an 18-volt tool then make sure the tool's and battery's mating surfaces are OK. Try the battery in other tools & try other batteries on the saw. If this doesn't help please respond with the saw's model number or what you found out doing what I've suggested.

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.
