Rated 5 out of 5 by this product is perfect for charging power tool batteries,ipads, cellphones, etc when I'm moving from job to job getting thing done. can anyone tell me how to change the fuse? I lost the information that came with it? May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by just over all great! I have used this over & over again & again .I think all workers should get one ! March 15, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great product. Power Chord fails I have bought several of these. The inverter is great and does as it is supposed to. The power chord unfortunately fails. In each of the ones I have purchased the power chord has failed causing them to be useless. December 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product has great features wonderful products-would pass the word on to all my friends November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by takes a beating and still works excellent charges my cell phone and my full capacity x4 batteries with no problems!! April 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I don't leave home without it. I charge my phone and my Ridgid 12v & 18v batteries on the drive to the jobsite. The cooling fan is quite and it doesn't get as hot as some inverters I had in the past. April 7, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Small easy to use device. Just for the ridgid fans out there. Style and colour are great. Power cord is a little ridgid but manageable. The only downfall is that you can't be charging a ridgid battery pack. It snaps the inline fuse within seconds. Great for keeping my smart phone on charge! All in all, for the price, you can't beat it. October 23, 2013

Once the red to green flashing begins, it occasionally holds on green for a few seconds and delivers momentarily power and then back to the flashing red to green.

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID.

The difficulty you are describing indicates that you are overloading the inverter with the particular device you are attempting to power. You should review the lap tops actual power requirement. They probably exceed or just max out the inverters output capability.
