Just got a reply from Ridgid. I asked if there was any plan to market a higher AH 18 volt lithium ion battery. I added that I felt it would be a good idea considering all the 18 volt Ridgid tools out there and the many lithium offerings from competition. The response was a simple "No plans at this time to add a higher AH 18 volt battery to their lithium line". I'm in no urgent need for such a upgrade at the present time, but if I was in the market for a new set of cordless tools Ridgid would not be my first choice. I'm disappointed because I won't get what I believe is a better battery for my tools. I would probably look into the 18 volt Dewalt nano if I was in the market. Two reasons, good selection of tools new and used, and of course the battery itself. Funny thing is that there was so much confusion and misinformation when the 18 volt compact lithium was introduced by Ridgid, that maybe this information I got is also wrong?
No announcement yet.
No Higher AH 18 volt Lithium, Ridgid
