Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Charger!! This charger is excellent!! I've had my 1/4 in impact driver and charger for two and a half years and I am extremely happy with my purchase. It charges incredibly fast; about 20 minutes; however I do not have to charge it often because the battery retains its charge extremely well for my needs. Other reviewers have stated that the charger pictured is not the charger that they purchased; that's not the case as it pertains to me. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works quickly and easily This charger works very quickly and smoothly. I'm very happy with it. December 9, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by I don't see the charger I got with my kit The charger I recieved with the drill/impact kit was very slow and I think it's misleading that you don't even put it on you site. I feel the one I got is the one most people will end up with. If you have an excess of the old ones you should give them away or throw them away, not make people feel like they are getting the better charger because it's the only one seen on your site.

Answer: 
All RIDGID 18V platform tools and batteries are interchangeable. However, RIDGID 18V Lithium Ion batteries do require their correct charger. There was no drill information in this message, but extra or replacement batteries can be ordered through the master parts distributor at 1-877-544-9253. If you are in the U.S. you can order batteries through your local Home Depot stores special services desk.

Answer: 
Spetenwell,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Your #31013 1.1 Ah battery cannot be charged with the dual chemistry charger but CAN be charged with our advanced lithium battery charger (#43458). You can purchase this item from your local RIDGID distributor. You can find the closest one to you by going here (https://www.ridgid.com/us/en/where-to-buy) and entering in your zip code.

Thanks for your support of RIDGID!

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

Yes, you can do that. To use an invertor you would need at least a 300w ac adapter.

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

Yes, that is why it is classified as a dual chemistry charger. It can charge both RIDGID 18V Lithium Ion and NiCad batteries.

1. The label on my charger says Charger No. R840093 (label attached), but this page seems to be for an AC840093. Are they the same device?

2. Is there a manual for the R840093 available? What documentation is available?

3. Two very similar questions were asked about inverters. Username Goodtobeking asked "Is it ok to use this charger with a DC to AC inverter with a modified sine wave?"

Ridgid replied "No, it is not recommended."

Username deerkiller asked "Would I be able to plug this charger, or any other Ridgid charger, in to a power inverter in my vehicle," and he specified a Duracell inverter that appears to be a modified sine wave inverter.

Ridgid replied "Yes, you can do that."

MY QUESTION: Will the R840093 work on a modified sine wave inverter from a reputable manufacturer, such as Cobra, Tripp Lite, Whistler, CAT? Will you please reference some documentation with your answer?

This should be a pretty common application with anyone who would want to charge their batteries in a remote location. An inverter uses 12-volt direct current from a source such as a car battery to provide 120-volt alternating current similar to house hold power. Inverters that alternate their voltage in a pure sine wave are significantly more expensive and less common than ones that output modified sine wave.

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

The R840093 and AC840093 are the same item, the AC only indicates the unit was sold as an accessory at Home Depot. The manual will be the same information. The charger will work with in inverter.
