  • Hitachi LIthium Ion Battery Warranty

    Now this is a warranty! I don't find anything on their website to indicate that the battery would be pro-rated. It looks to be a pure replacement. I guess lith-ion battery technology is pretty reliable.

    TEN years for the Hitachi batteries seems to be a good number! My Ridgid 18V is in its 6th year and improvements to newer tools looks more interesting every year: lighter,more speeds/torque, LED, lithium etc. If only Hitachi styling can become a bit more conventional looking........

      I would suspect it is on the tool only and not the battery. A battery lasting 10 years is not really believable or realistic.

        10 years is not realistic for any battery, especially lithium ion, their capacity degrades over time by itself, whether you use the batteries or not. I've had cell phone lithium ion batteries last about 5 years of useful life.

          2 Years on the Battery
