All Ogura tools use the amazing Makita 18 V Li-Ion battery.

Recent tests by Ogura prove that the new Li-Ion units suffer a discharge rate of only 9% after 500 days in storage! Ogura are the only manufacturer of rescue tools with access to Makita batteries.

Ogura Li-Ion Battery

Tests prove that the batteries used on Ogura tools have at least twice the life of other power tool batteries. Intelligent charging means that each individual battery has its own charge profile dependent on use. This extends battery life, increases durability and means 30% more cuts per charge. Recharge time is only 22 minutes. Both in-vehicle and mains powered chargers are available.

All Ogura Tools are supplied in sturdy carry cases with versatile foam inserts.
