Battery grease gun

Got a Sealey 18v, it’s a generic one that comes under a few brands.

Nothing wrong with it at all except the battery doesn’t last overly long, probably a low Ah rating.
Have a sealy also two batteries with it more than enough for even a dairy farmer

Our sealey works ok but batterys are rubbish. Have two completely dead batteries and one which is useable but really needs to come straight of charger before use.

While on this thread are the g couplers worth buying? And are the harder to get in to tight spots for greasing? Want a battery grease gun but wondering if just changing the end would make it easier
As said they are very good wide angle PTO shafts can be a bit awkward but other than that very good but I do need a normal coupler for the odd grease nipple.

I've got a G Coupler on a manual gun. It works, but I don't find it easy to get it to come off sometimes. I've just bought a Doost coupler to go on a new Dewalt electric gun. Neither unpacked yet as I've been unwell.
 
For the penny pinchers like me Makita also make a device that converts a cordless drill into a cordless grease gun:


I have one, I had a spare cordless driver that I never used, it now lives on the above attachment, has made greasing a LOT easier, and all for £60+vat..........
I take it,it's not too cumbersome?
I have a number of battery drills and that solution looks good for (A tightarse like) me.

I've not found it cumbersome, you can wield it with just one hand on the drill handle, and that leaves the other free for locating the grease nipples etc. I've never used one of the purpose made cordless greasers so couldn't compare with them, but its definitely a step up from a manual grease gun for sure. I've certainly put more grease into my excavator since I got it anyway!

Have recently got a Milwaukee grease gun and makes greasing easy, although it does airlock a bit which is annoying, not sure if it’s the type of grease cartridges? It came with a right angle end as well as the straight one which has its own nipple on so a push fit adapter which is great.
 
I currently have a number of Speedy Grease guns. Like that cartridges are easy to replace with little mess, long hose, magnet and give a decent amount of grease with each pump. What am I likely to find much better about an electric grease gun? Have other Milwaukee power tools and batteries so would probably prefer this. Old style changing of cartridges look a negative though.

They all look like big lumps to me too.

Another vote for sealey. Had mine 3/4 years and even survived being ran over surprisingly. I bought it thinking it would only last a year but still works absolutely fine. And it was only about £100

I bought the makita attachment 18 months/2 years ago....... I bought a Milwaukee 18v the other day, just couldn’t get on with the makita for air locking & not emptying cartridges cleanly. When it wasn’t airlocking it worked well with my wee impact driver. Milwaukee is problem free with the same cartridges.
