Battery Power Only ?

Can we plug this into a wall outlet or is it for use with battery power only.
Asked by: CS65
Keep in mind that the AC adaptor slides into the only battery slot. This prevents you from moving the unit away from a power source without powering-down the unit first, removing the adaptor, installing the battery, and then powering the unit back up.

Does the CS65 come with a power source cable ?

If batteries are an optional extra, am I able to use this product out of box, without purchasing additional products such as power inverters, cables etc.
Asked by: CS65
Thank you for contacting RIDGID! The CS65 has the capability to run off 18v battery or an AC adapter. When purchasing, you would need to either purchase the unit with the batteries and charger or purchase the AC Battery Adapter to use with the unit. Catalog number 45363 is the optional AC battery adapter that you can purchase to use with it instead of batteries. Hope this helps, please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

Is the CS65 compatible with all SeeSnakes

I'm having trouble selecting between the CS10 and CS65 for my new SeeSnake Plus (13998). What are the major differences between these two monitors?
Asked by: CS65
Thank you for contacting RIDGID. There are several differences. For example, CS65 has a 1 TB internal hard drive, 2 USB drives and a water resistant keyboard. The CS10 records to a USB drive and does not have a keyboard. Please visit for more information on the specs of these machines.
