  • 18 volt batteries

    I have a Ridgid 18 volt drill with the smaller battery (1. something amp)
    Can I use the 2.5 amp battery in it? Can I use the same charger?

    Battery Question

    Your drill will certainly work with the 2.5Ah battery with no detrimental effects and the batteries will work on your current charger. Enjoy the increased run time. Thanks for your support of RIDGID.

      What is the differance between the Max HC and Max2.5?

        MAX HC are 2.2 AH and the mechanism that holds the battery to the tool is one piece, the Max 2.5's are 2.5 AH and each button activates a separate catch

          Are they both interchangeable with the small 18 volt?

            yes

            all are compatible, the difference for the end-user is the run time
            1.x, 2.2, 2.5 is just the amp-hour rating of the battery, it is a matter of x.x amps provided for x hours without dropping below x volts

            think of car battery rating as: 12V battery rated as 20AH, it can provide 20A for 20H and maintain a V of 10.5 at the time period
