Will the ridgid 18 volt nickel cadium and the Ridgid 18 volt Lithium ion battery interchange on the various 18 volt tools?
Welcome to the forum. Yes, all of the 18v batteries made by Ridgid will work in any of the 18v tools - be they 18v NiCads - various ampere hour (Ah) specifications, 18v Lithium 1.5 Ah, or 18v Lithium 3 Ah. You'll get varing runtimes with each battery based on the chemistry makeup and the ampere hour ratings. The "Lithium" rated 18v charger will charge all battery chemistries.
