  • How do I maximize NiCad battery life?

    I've got 3 18v 2.5Ah and 1 12v compact Ridgid NiCad batteries.
    How do I get the maximum run time & life out of these batteries?
    I normally will use them frequently for one job around the house, then not touch them for weeks or even months.
    I have both chargers.
    Thanks.

    This article will explain everything to you, never let them fully discharge.

      I haven't had a chance to read Garager's article yet, but there is some good info in this old post:
