  • LI battery / charger mismatch?

    I'm the originator of the 'LI batteries and NO customer service' thread:

    While investigating my options, I came across the same batteries being sold by It says:
    "Ridgid 18 Volt Lithium Ion Battery 130383001 - Use only with Ridgid R840091 Battery Charger"

    That is my same battery number, but that is NOT my charger model. My charger is model #140276006.

    They came together as a kit, so one would assume they should work together but does anyone know for sure? Could a mismatch between charger and battery be the cause of both my batteries' demise? They were only charged maybe three or four times in their short lives.

    Those two numbers are for the same charger. See here:
    "HONK if you've never seen a gun fired from a moving Harley"

      Oh, okay, thanks. So much for that theory.
