I’ve linked the quick charger with double 5A, 18V batteries as that is the set that I have and love. If you are on a budget you can get 3A batteries as well that are cheaper and get the charger separate. The charger will work with both types of 18V batteries, so you can get a battery of 3A to start with and buy a 5A battery later on. Same as with the 5A batteries, when you’re charging one and using one, the charging will be complete before the one in use is empty.
I started off with the 3A batteries myself, but quickly bought a few 5A batteries when I bought the makita 36V chainsaw. I use the same batteries in both.
