I have a feeling you kept them discharged for a long time. That's your fault, not Makita's.

I have a feeling you're wrong.  I know how to keep NiMh batteries maintained properly - and it's not just a matter of keeping the pack in the charger cooking away.  The battery had a weak sister - it gave up before the rest of the cells did.  That is clearly Makita's (or whomever made the batteries for them) fault.  Quit making unsubstantiated accusations before you have all the facts.

Sorry, I assumed they were Li-Ion because we are talking about li-ion. If they are NiMH and died within 2 years, there was a problem with them. On the other hand, you can get them for $35 a piece on eBay, brand new.
