I'm looking at getting this drill driver set: https://www.bunnings.com.au/makita-lxt-18v-2-x-1-5ah-cordless-drill-driver-kit_p6240347
My question is, will the standard charger that comes with this set also be able to charge batteries with larger amps?
For example this 18v 5.0ah lithium battery : https://www.totaltools.com.au/106667-makita-18v-5-0ah-lithium-ion-battery-bl1850bl
that I plan to purchase for a cordless circular saw.
It's a good looking drill set.
The Makita charger will charge all 18V batteries in their range. The larger capacity batteries (eg 5ah) will just charge slower as their capacity holders more charge overall.
Good luck with your purchase.
