Makita ADP05 USB Charger UK Review 

Thanks for taking your time to read our review of the Makita ADP05 Model DEAADP05 Adaptor for Usb. Below we have included a full and detailed review of this highly popular choice for UK buyers.

This very useful adaptor works with all 18 Volt and 14.4 Volt Makita batteries. It also comes with a belt clip so you can charge a mobile phone from a Makita battery as you walk around. It has 2 USB ports for charging 2 mobile devices at once, phones, tablets etc.

In reality though, it only makes sense to buy this adaptor if you already have Makita tools and some 18V batteries. If that is the case then this is a really good device for charging up to two devices.
