Got a new DHP481Z power tool but i heard somewhere it required 3 AH batteries. Now I know why, they have a little piece of metal which blocks older batteries from being used - not sure why entirely.

Example, the BL1815 1.5 AH battery doesn't fit in it, but they have a new BL1815N model 1.5Ah battery that apparently does fit. The difference? No idea, but I show in this video how to make old batteries fit and work with the new power tools from Makita. Works like a charm for me!
