  • Old Battery Charger

    Can I use this Ridgid charger (Model No.140276001) to charge 18V Ridgid lithium ion batteries? Thank you.

    The charger will list the model numbers of all the batteries it was designed to charge. A year or so ago there was an extensive discussion on this forum regarding the issue of using the older chargers for charging LI batts. Probrand finally posted a statement that Ridgid engineers had stated that the older NiCad chargers could be used for charging LI batts. We have a couple of the Max Twin chargers which I tried for charging LI batts a couple of times. I didn't like the way the chargers cycled with the fans going on and off and the lights operating skitszoid. There have been published reports of LI batts exploding when abused so I reverted to charging LI batts on LI chargers only.

      Thanks roadrashray. I'll have to look for Proband's post.
