Unusual IMO for you to have battery issues with the Makita 1/4 inch impact. I have used a few 1/4 impacts in plumbing van up fitting shelves. By the time it was ready to swap out batteries the gun was hot enough that I was glad to take a break so my hand and the impact needed a while to cool off. I worked those guns very very hard.

Makita is under advertised IMO as the products are excellent.
