Also heavier and bulkier. But understand your thinking.

Makita states the 5Ah battery pack only weighs .02 lb more (1.5lb to 1.48lb). Couldn't find size info but I don't think they're much larger, if at all.

The 3Ah batteries are old. Still functional for sure, but they've been around forever. Particularly if you're interested in any of the higher draw devices (saws, masonry tools, anything in their 36V setup) you're going to want the bigger battery.

Actually not heavier or bulkier. I have both. The 3.0 batteries are old and are a similar size to the 5.0 batteries. If you want compact 18V Makita batteries I suggest those newer style 2.0V slim battery packs instead.

he doesn't know what he's talking about, they are the same size since they are both "fat" packs, same weight although technically heavier, I doubt anyone will feel the 0.02 pound difference

Extra weight does make a difference during extended use. Im a solar electrician and shaving weight from my tool harness is big deal when im posted up on a extended 40ft ladder or lugging around in a tight attic. But the 5.0 is definitely the way to go imo. $50 might be quite a jump for some too, its all preference

bro do you actually know what 0.02 of a pound is? By your comment you clearly do not.
0.02 of a pound difference is TWO - hundreths of a pound, you are not going to tell the difference in weight, they will feel identical in your hands.
