BATTERY LIFE HORRIBLE
1 Star Review   By Ohhhh on Home Depot - Jun 12, 2013   

One year and either the battery charger or the batteries themselves are no good. I have read many reviews like this so buyer beware.I have only had my 18v for a year. My bad for not sending in the lifetime replacement option. I guess the reason Rigid offers this is because they know the batteries have a very short life expectancy. Come On Rigid!! I guess its back to the others.

Batteries wear out too quick
2 Star Review   By Dandy on Home Depot - Jan 26, 2013   

For the cost of these batteries the life of them leaves much to be desired. I am seeing about a year of use on the battery life. Seems like every time I turn around I have to replace these batteries. The new design seems better than the old but battery life still seems short to me.

So far so good...
5 Star Review   By ChazB on Home Depot - Jan 1, 2013   

Like most people I really like the Rigid impact and drill. The original batteries have a lot to be desired. I was skeptical about the new battery design, so far no issues. It has been working great.

Improved over origional battery.
5 Star Review   By westi on Home Depot - Dec 25, 2012   

This new battery is much improved over origional battery. Replaced with this battery even though I had a life time replacement on the origional. It was worth the money.

Great battery
5 Star Review   By CodyO on Home Depot - Oct 30, 2012   

Great battery with excellent run time. I have a total of three, which ensures that I always have a charged battery while on the job site, as long as I remember to put it on the charger when it dies...

Terrific! Having this extra battery on the job saved a tremendous amount of time.
5 Star Review   By Xman on Home Depot - Sep 4, 2012   

The Lithium batteries have a tremendous work life. They far outlast my old NiCad batteries. I would recommend that everyone has an extra battery.

waranty to short
3 Star Review   By Doug on Home Depot - Aug 21, 2012   

I was disapointed with only 3 year waranty. I buy Ridgid tools because they boast lifetime waranty. my other cordless kit has lifetime waranty on batteries because I had to buy this one seperate it only came with 3 year waranty.

dont waste your money on a spare battery
4 Star Review   By bretguy on Home Depot - Jun 26, 2012   

No warranty on battery only! MY BAD I made the mistake of thinking that because they were offering a lifetime warranty on the tool and the battery, that batteries only would have the same warranty. I just wasted my money on a spare battery that I didn't need. they will warranty the battery that came with the tool unlimited times. SO YOU LEARN

Great Replacement Upgrade
5 Star Review   By K9Pro on Home Depot - Apr 3, 2012   

Charges quickly, holds good charge for quite a while. The LEDs on this battery aid in knowing how much charge remains. I like this, and consider it an upgrade from my previous batteries without the LEDs built in.

No more guessing
5 Star Review   By Thomas on Home Depot - Feb 29, 2012   

I go pretty hardcore with my Ridgid tools. I'm pretty much all work and all play with them. The light feature is great cuz with the push of a button I can tell when it's time to change batteries instead of waiting for it to die while I'm hard at work. Definitely a great addition to your tool box and to your Ridgid tools.
