Rated 1 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by very poor I bought this and in 3 months it just QUIT! no warning nothing just stop taking a charge just like that. I lost my receipt and didn't register it so I have an expensive paper weight. The other reviews are on the money. I will not purchase another one. In fact the quality is so poor I may switch from Ridgid tools to another type. every review is the same very poor.The $90.00 price tag wasn't however. Ridgid needs to re think this battery and maybe a recall is in order. I have better things to do with my money then throw it away on a bad product. BTW I'm not a contractor just a home user so it wasn't used much before it quit. I also use the Ridgid Lion charger also. September 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Both batteries are dead Couple years old and both batteries are dead. Based on web search, this appears to be an ongoing issue that they do not addresss. Im guessing that they like the replacement battery revenue stream. Can you say planned obsolescence? August 15, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I thought Ridgid stood for better quality than DeWalt but I was wrong Bought a Ridgid combo 18 Volt Drill and Impact set with charger and two batteries, one has failed, will not take a charge. These batteries are way costly, to buy a replacement, should have stayed with DeWalt, they stand behind quality. Totally disappointing. September 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Second double failure I originally purchased a combo kit just to use at home due to the lower price . I won't mention the normal brand the I use but I'll simply say that I've gone through a total of four of rigid a lithium batteries. My normal brand has been beat up and used many times as long with no failures yet. The first rigid failure, I was lucky enough to run into a rep at HD and he gave me a free( by mail) third battery if I bought two. All these brands do the same basic function but some have more frequent failures. Almost forgot I was told that my last two were still under the warranty period now I only need a receipt!!!@?

Rated 1 out of 5 by lifetime my butt. This battery seemed great for a short time. After a few months would only run down 1/4 of the way, I thought it was a fluke until it happened to a second battery. Then it happened to a third and about 7 months of not a lot of use they would not charge at all. I made the mistake of not registering the tools and was told since they were more than 30 days old there was nothing they could do. I love the tools, all of my Ridgid tools but the batteries in my opinion are junk. Wish they would just replace them with new, they say lifetime. If they would stand behind them like other brands they are the only brand I would buy. I have about 40+ battery tools and 6 different brands and for the tools themselves they are the best all around but the batteries themselves are junk. November 2, 2013
