is there a difference between batterys, BL1830 & BL1830B
i have two different Makita drills, one takes a different battery.
the one i would like is a BL1830, but 5.0ah.
Thanks for your question, but Makita does not offer a battery model number BL1830B. Note that batteries with a “B” in the model number (BL1820B, BL1840B, BL1850B) include an integrated L.E.D. battery charge level indicator. Models without a“ B” (BL1820, BL1830, BL1840, BL1850) do not have an L.E.D. charge level indicator. For further information, please contact our Service Center at (800)4-MAKITA during business hours.
