I purchased a L-ION Model R86014 drill on 7/29/09. With the Battery's fully charged it seems like the Protection feature kicks in with very little force. I can make it kick in by holding the chuck with a fully charged battery. The Protection feature has been a problem since the drill was new, but never as bad as it is now. The drill is unusable now. The drill seems fine, so i would imagine its either a battery or charger problem. I do HVAC and on occasion i need to force the drill to get the job done. Would i be better off replacing the batteries with a older type without the protection feature? The protection feature has always kicked in since day one, and i just cant imagine i push it any harder then any other tradesman. It also gets high reviews so its very possible mine has been faulty since day one. I purchased this drill on 7/29/09. Am i eligible for any type of warranty from Ridgid?
