  • Battery problems with R841151

    Hi guys,

    I own the R841151 for about 2 years now and the batteries that came with it are Just dead(Charger doesn't recognize it also).

    I bought a new set(includes two batteries) of batteries from Home Depot(like a month ago), and guess what... THEY also DIED!

    Does anybody know what is the problem ?

    Im guessing its the Drill but Im not sure .

    Help would really be appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance.

    i had the same problem with some of my older ridgid battery powered tools and i found out it was the connector in the tool that was worn out so i sent the drill and saw back to ridgid and was covered under the waranty

      IIRC the switch on the drill is shorted internally and when ever you put in a new battery it sees the short and the batteries internal fuse pops

        Thanks guys!

        Sorry i didnt reply back.

        I think what i'll do is call ridgid for an RMA.
