I had been wanting the RIDGID 18-Volt Hammer Drill and Impact Driver kit because of the higher capacity batteries, but it looks like they are gone. Tried multiple zip codes and nothing. Out of stock online and email info said the kit was not currently a production item, and is unclear if it will become available again or not. The drill/impact/radio kit has the 1.5ah batteries. May have to go that router.
The write up on the 4.0 ah li battery shows it is backwards compatible to all 18 volt Rigid tools. I have the R84015 X2 drill that still works great. Anyone know from real world experience that the new li batteries so work on the old drills? If so, I could get just the impact, maybe even the 1/2" model, with new batteries and use the old drill. Thanks for any help with this question you can offer. Jim.
As of yesterday my local Home Depots still had the combo kits, zip 55337
