    No way this is going to be a genuine Makita battery at that price. It will be one of those cheap Chinese knockoffs.
    Genuine ones retail at $168.

      Ofcourse not, Sorry have updated the post.I assumed people could tell the image its not original

      Definitely. Still, I'd be tempted if I didn't already have 4.

      I have a non genuine dyson battery that was about 1/4 the price that has been great.

      Wouldn't expect the advertised capacity but I think it would be fine for general usage.

      •  

        where you get the dyson one from?

        •  

          Just from ebay.

        I would expect 1/4 capacity, and lower power so only good for light work.

        May also catch fire at some point. If your lucky not while your using it.

          I'd prefer the model that catches on fire whilst I'm using it, then the shed doesn't burn down…

      Yeah for sure! Wonder if the genuine ones are 4 times better? 🤔. Never tried the cheap knockoffs!

        having used genuine before on other tools, I am looking at the alternates now, when they are so much lower cost than originals.

    I have a wild assumption that I get 70% of the genuine capacity and 70% of the life of it. If it is still cheaper, I go knock off…. Have knock offs for robo vac, old laptop, and even one 5ah Makita. There is no proof to my logic, it's just how I frame thinking about it.

      Just add to the equation a certain % chance of a fire from these battery packs.

    I have been using those cheap batteries for my tools as they are really cheap.. I can tell the genuine battery is much better then these cheap one.
    A half of these cheap batteries I bought have died within a year and the rest of them are still okay. Considering my experience.. and If you still want these cheap one? I recommend that you buy it from reliable online shops for the warranty althought it will cost you a bit more. Otherwise.. you will waste your money or time.. maybe the both. I don't know how much trustworthy the sellers are on banggood.. but if they are, these cheap ones are very economical.

    Great video to give an idea of how bad or good these may be - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjBiM0GQEe8

    I have purchased 3 of these in the past, each not lasting more than a year. One lasting only 3 months.

    Definitely not the power they're advertising either.

    What I ended up doing in the end was 3D printing an adaptor for the ALDI XFINITY and Ozito batteries to fit my Makita tools. Paid for themselves many times over.

    •  

      Where did you get the pattern to print up the converters.

      •  

        https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3993003. I took my file for a Bosch to ryobi adapter to our locale library and they printed it for me for the cost of the filament.(Gold Coast City Library). Now closed because of covid, but opening back up soon.

    I have used ones that look the same and they performed ok. They have not heated up. I did weigh them in comparison to a lowest spec genuine battery and they did weigh less. I think the ones I compaired were an original 3 amp and a copy 5 amp and my original 3 amp weighed more. I'm fairly certain you can't have a greater capacity without having a greater weight.
    Despite this I got two for half the price of an original.
