Actually, it’s not the yellow connector at all, but a third terminal in the newer tools that slots into the new batteries. However, it doesn’t appear to have any adverse effect on the functionality of the tool.
I’ve done this “fix” on my older cordless grinder and have been using that for some pretty heavy work over the last few years, even with the higher amp hour batteries.
As with anything that you are strictly not supposed to do, use this at your own risk.

  2. “Making me look like a fool”
    Not as foolish as me when I tried to blow the plastic shavings off as you were chiselling the block away. 🤦🏼

  3. My wife bought me an Makita LXT 18V Lithiom Ion Kit of 3 tools and it was very annoying to find that whilst the labels and markings on all of it looked modern (LXT 18V LiOn) they were all the older style tools and none of the newer batteries I had would fit. After looking into it and adapters on ebay I found your video. Needless to say I took the Dremel to the lot and now they are all working perfectly with my 5 and 6Ah batteries. None of these tools have any type of middle data connector or a third connector, just the outer power conductors. All sales waffle aside I'm sure its just planned obsolescence to make you buy new tools. In this case I feel my wife was ripped off by a sales dude who was offloading older tools, but thats Aok, they work great and have great battery life now until they die. Thank you.

  4. You just saved me a ton of grief and time. I stumbled upon your video and "retrofitted" all of my old Makitas. Way too easy. Thanks a LOT man! the yellow bottoms were all good, no annoying tab.

  5. Having same issue with my new cordless router. Large capacity batts fit well but my older smaller ones do not. Problem is with my new router the tab you chiseled away is metal and I see it connects to the electronics for purposes of charging. The thing with those yellow tab connectors is in the tool they connect to nothing but on the charger they do. My fix is to cut a thinner channel on my older batts and allow for the tab with a dremmel. Same thing and it works well. and I dont have to grind the metal tab on my tool away.

  6. I was able to do the same thing with a newer tool and older battery. All I had to do is remove a small plastic wall on the battery… and then it slid in perfectly

  7. I've watched more than a few AvE videos, and IIRC in most of the power tools he examines the outer shell has glass fiber in it. Glass is really hard and will dull blades/chisels fast. Thanks for the useful tip!

  8. 👌 OK… Thanks man… I've been frustrated with the same little thing…. being a terribly busy man it took me a few years to Google my way to your explanation …. Worked like a charm 👍
    Makita tools are almost indestructible so it is crucial that older tools work with these newer battery packs… It puzzles me why makita would put a little bullshit nob In the way to prevent new batteries to work with older tools…. 🤔… In my case the new 5 Amp pack wouldn't fit my makita sawzaw… It does now… 💪👍

  9. Hey sir, any advise on a replacement battery tricks for the hitachi circular saw with an 18v EB 1820 (which they stopped producing)?

  10. The newer Makita batteries seem to have a proper BMS, a low voltage cut off, over currant protection and cell balancing, where as I think some of the older batteries and the Chinese knockoffs might not, they seem to rely on the tool to cut out at low voltage, I've been building 9ah kit makita batteries with samsung 30q's from ali express for use in an ebike/tools, and opened up my other genuine makitas and chinese knockoffs to study, The knockoffs all have the power wires soldered directly to the terminals!! so with the right cells they chuck out all the amps the cells/terminals can handle, but also no LVC, over voltage or cell balancing, so would be more prone to damage/fire from misuse or short circuit, I did install balance taps on them for cell balancing.

  11. THANK YOU! I have had a Makita skill saw, that I got for a steal at a yard sale, sitting in the cupboard for over a year that wouldn't except the batteries from my drill. I was just waiting to give it away BUT now it works with my batteries.

  12. Perfect, an older tool long out of warranty means it is now fully able to fulfill it's lifetime of use capability. Buying a top shelf tool such as Makita D-wilt and the likes means you bought a tool that should be expected to out last the landfill-fillers such are Horror-Fright one-use for the right price type chinesium drek.

  13. I used my grinder to get rid of the ‘rib’on the new battery that’s not on the older batteries

  14. I got two batteries BL1830 and impact driver with star.One of battery is with star aswell. For some reason batteery without star fit to driver and works, but second battery with star do not. Only fitting half way( not fully in) driver works. Found that third contact slot on battery, which is on middle in star battery has two contacts inside, but non star battery only one contact. Any one knows why star not working with star?

  15. Just bought a new drill with a pair of 5ah batteries, because I could get it for roughly $30 more than just buying the batteries I intended to use in my BDF 451 drill. Got it in, tried the battery, didn't fit. Tried the battery in my dad's old BDF452 and fit fine. Spotted that same little plastic nub, and of course figured they changed this tiny detail to make everyone think they needed a new tool. But, before I cut that piece out, I had to check. Thanks for making the video. This was confirmation enough for what I was about to do anyway.
