I don't know whether to spend that much money on the 6ah or not, the 5ah is very disappointing if you give it hard work to do it last about 20 minutes and I need it to cut 1/4 inch by 4 inch pipe then have to wait longer than run time to put a new battery in. Not impressed at all. Now I'm stuck with a $400.000 dollar grinder that gets used.

The World of Concrete trade show is going on right now in Vegas and all of the major brands are there showing off their new 4.0Ah 18-volt batteries. Well, not all of the brands. Makita seems to be taking a pass on 4.0Ah and thinks 6.0Ah is the answer.
ToolStop, our friends over in the UK, had a chance to ask Makita UK why they have not released a 4.0Ah battery pack. So what was Makita's response? 'Two 3Ah li-ion batteries equals 6Ah.' What Makita is not saying here is that they will be coming out with a 6.0Ah battery pack. This is not code. They are saying their two 3.0Ah batteries are better than a single 4.0Ah. Probably not what you were expecting, but does Makita have a point?
I am sure you are saying that, sure, 2x3.0 = 6.0, but 2x4.0 = 8.0, so Makita is still behind. The math might be right, it doesn't lie, but you are still wrong. There is another variable to the equation that you forgot about. How long does it take to charge these 4.0Ah batteries? Makita says that two of their 3.0Ah batteries can be charged in the time it takes a single 4.0Ah battery to be charged. I did some limited testing a few months back comparing the charging time of only 3.0Ah batteries, and Makita was the clear winner. So maybe Makita has a valid point?
Makita 6ah Battery For Sale
What are your thoughts? If it is as cut and dry as Makita says, would you rather have larger battery packs that take longer to charge, or Makita's smaller packs that charge in half the time and give you a 2.0 Ah advantage for every hour of charging?lithium-ion • Makita • battery • 4.0Ah • 3.0Ah • 6.0Ah
Makita has the largest line of 18V tools available. With that said, it only makes sense to have one of the best performing batteries with their new 18V 6 Ah battery. The model number for this new battery is BL 1860B. So what is amps and what does the 6Ah battery mean? Think of it this way. The volts are the size of your gas tank and the amps are how much gas is in the tank. So a 6Ah battery has more gas than the 5Ah battery. Get this, even though the amps increased, the size and weight did not. So you can expect the same size and weight as your older batteries, but with a much longer run time.

I know, the bigger amps means a longer charge time. Actually no, it doesn’t. This battery will fully charge in just 55 minutes. Another cool feature, which most batteries have, is the on board LED fuel gauge. With a press of a button, you can see how much juice or battery life is left on the battery.
Another cool feature to this battery is it protects against overloading and over charging. So in the end, your battery will last much longer. Besides heat, one of the biggest things that ruin batteries is drops and falls. Makita designed this battery with an impact resistant outershell and an inner shock absorbing liner . Kind of like M&M’s candy shell, but just not as tasty. Each battery comes with a 3 year warranty.
