Well, when a battery eventually dies, butcher it so that you get a 2-core cord out the back with a croc clip on each cord. Attach to car battery. Attach car battery to charger. Plug charger into mains. Key presto! 12 volt 72Ah battery pack, mains powered........

I'm sure I've seen this sort of thing done somewhere. But then it was on a Ryobi :-P

Bought one today,i'm fed up of going downstairs to the garage,this one has a nice shady spot under my side of the bed ready to spring into action for the odd DIY job
Dont tell Mrs Canny but i'm not sure what i'm going to use it for yet as i have done most of the jobs :lol: :lol:

Is it worth registering it with Makita :scratch:

Definately - it gives you a 3 year warranty instead of 1

Oh and Wickes have the single battery 3ah model for £139.99 at the moment which is a good price
