Default Makita drill battery dead or alive

Hi Folks, has anyone got a 24V Makita battery for the circular saw that "slides in " to the base of the handle.
I need it to re stuff or convert to a mains adaptor for a saw I was given without a battery.

Cheers, Ed

Have you looked on Ebay, there's new batteries of all sorts quite cheap. I bought a Makita drill battery, NiMh for about 12

Hi Ed I have used an 18volt one as a mains adaptor ,they are a very nice little saw but soon flattened the batteries, I wonder if it is the same connector as the 18v one . Mick.

Hi Mike. a look on ebay shows lots of batteries for sale as well as "umbilical" adaptors, so it would suggest that the battery is the weak point

Hello Ed

all I can offer is a fairly duff 18v unit. I suspect the connector is the same, but would need a bit of creative surgery to accommodate extra cells. Yours for postage.

I've just noticed that couriers / RM won't handle batteries - this would be a problem unless I can take it apart & remove the existing cells.

Hi Pete, thanks for that, as I'm going to do an umbilical conversion, not a restuff it should not be a problem (and lighter) if the cells are removed for posting.

I'll PM details

Hello Ed

the unit will be on it's way tomorrow. Out of interest, I've shown how the cells were connected prior to removal.
