How to tell a genuine Makita 18V Battery from a Fake.
Published at : 17 Dec 2020
Purchased two batteries through eBay at the same time, one from the USA the other China. I was quite sure the Chinese one had a high probability of being fake, but how to tell? Check the video and you will see what i found out.
Now you may say, but if it's a fake and its just like the real one, why not? If you do a bit of research, you will see that they don't last long at all on a charge or last at all in their overall life span, so it's important to not be duped and stick to the real one.
PS: I incorrectly say that the weight is in ounces, should be a pound plus so many ounces.
