Question about Makita 18V 1/2"CRDLS Drill Kit
WOW! Count yourself very lucky. Most batteries don't last half that time. The newer battery probably has a lower amp hour rating than the first one. When replacing the battery (and you must replace it) look for the one with the HIGHEST amp hours - which is usually written on the battery or packaging. You can also ask at a Batteries Plus store if they can re-build the original battery for you- since the unit is so old, and Makita might not make replacements for your drill. You could rebuild the battery yourself,it is only 12 AA or C batteries wired together, but ni-cads can be dangerous when soldering and can explode if you slip up. Best bet is to get a new or rebuilt battery.

'Tis not so easy as it would require a different transformer. Praying that the stock transformer would support both 240/120 might be hoping for a bit much. Aplliances that support both voltages (such as computer power supplies) usually have a switch on them for doing so.

I think your tryiong to charge NIMH batteries oon a charger designed for Lithium Ion batteries. With all the new style batteries such as NICAD, NIMH and LI-ION, charging becomes difficult. Most chargers pre NIMH and LI-ion, were designed for NICAD's. The best advise, match your batteries with the correct charger
