Makita Battery Warranty Extended from 1 year to 3 Years
Battery efficiency is vital to all cordless power tools. You need a dependable lithium-ion battery to complete a project. It needs to have run time, but it also needs to have a long lifetime. The great news for Makita users is that the Makita battery warranty is being extended to 3 years.
Here at PTR, we haven’t had many issues with our Makita batteries. Looking through the forums and customer review sites, it seems that some people have. With three years of coverage under the Makita battery warranty, those occasional issues are less of headache. The new warranty took effect on October 1st. Here’s more – it is retroactive! Any Makita lithium-ion battery is now covered for 3 years from its purchase date, even if it was 2 years, 363 days ago.
“With the world’s largest 18 volt Lithium-Ion cordless tool line-up and the industry’s fastest-charging 18V batteries, Makita is giving contractors more opportunities than ever to unplug the cord. Now, we’re backing up our expanding cordless line-up with an upgraded 3-year limited warranty that covers all lithium-ion tools, batteries and chargers.”

Under the new Makita battery warranty, all current and future Makita lithium-ion batteries and chargers are covered. Now the entire kit from tool to charger is warrantied for the same amount of time.
What Voids Your Makita Warranty:

- The Power Tool, Battery or Charger has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
