I was almost ready to get rid of my whole bosch 18V power set and buy all ridgid. I currently have the following bosch items. 3 drills, 1 jig saw, 1 circ saw, 1 sawsall, 1 dual bay charger and 1 job-site radio box. What convinced be to buy the bosch set was the radio. Some of the radio features are similar to ridgids. Rugged housing, 3.5 mm Auxiliary Audio Input, 12 V DC port, will run off of one of the batteries. What Ridgid doesn't have is a GFCI 4 gang power bay so you actually gain 3 plug instead of losing one and it will also charge a battery when it is plugged in. As soon as you unplug the radio, with the battery still inserted, the radio will automatically switch to the battery. As soon as the ridgid radio has these features I will be giving away my bosch set and replacing with the wonderful ridgid products. Hope someone from product development reads these forums.
