MAINTENANCE NOTICE: The site will be down for extended maintenance on Sunday, October 2, 2016, between 12 Noon and 6 PM Eastern. We apologize for any inconvenience!
If you will read everything from the box to the website, it does not say lifetime warranty.
It is a 3year warranty. A lifetime service agreement. This agreement covers parts that are meant to wear out.(o-rings, brushes, and yes batteries) It only covers defects for the first three years( but it will cover the cost of repairs).
Here it is in black and white. http://www.ridgid.com/Manuals/RidgidLSA.pdf
