Hi Toby....so the tools are 10.8v and the batteries are 10.8v and ,I assume, the charger is 10.8v and ,if you have the manual, it states 10.8v.......so it is a 10.8v set of Makita tools.

I'm not sure if you could use another battery size....let me check! But I am not a sparky so I could be wrong!

Sorry but it seems you will have to use the 10.8v size.

One 'Youtube' vid did say that the new Dewalt 54v would work....but it didn't show it!

Maybe best to stick with the 10.8v Makita battery size for those particular tools.

you can never use a bigger battery than the tool is designed for
in the past dewalt and and other manufacturers would use say the same mechanism for 14.4 and 18v gear to save money with only the battery housing being different but think things are fully matched now :dunno:

You can, but it will run much faster and create its own smoke screen :lol:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Seriously.

1)If you try to run a battery tool on a bigger (Higher voltage) battery it really will "cook" the tool as it will run too fast and burn out.

2) You can run it on a bigger capacity battery (Bigger Ah) it will last longer between charges. BUT can the charger charge a bigger battery? probably not.

3) How will you make the "bigger" battery fit ?

4) If its your first battery tool then use it for what it is and appreciate it. When it fails, bin it and buy something better, repairing it will cost more than a new, better one.
