The new battery is engineered more run time (twice the runtime of the Makita 3.0Ah LXT battery), but with the same weight and dimensions as the lower-capacity 3.0Ah, 4.0Ah, and 5.0Ah LXT batteries, according to the company.

"The new 18 volt six amp-hour battery will create new standards in cordless efficiency and productivity," senior product manager Carlos Quintana said in a statement.
