I have a feeling that Ridgid will soon be selling one of the NiCad / LI chargers, in a dual port charger, that will be able to charge all voltages, including 24 volt. Sounds like good business sense, and I would imagine they would do that right around the same time they release the new higher Ah 18v LI battery.
Fingers crossed. :rolleyes:
I'm crossing my fingers and toes!:D
At first I thought... No cd player?? as well... but with the aux it allows you to use whatever you want. Also.. how often are you switching cds in and out on the jobsite? just curious. I would think most people listen to the radio. With an ipod you can load it up and let er go for the day or week or year whatever. Just make sure you pick someones ipod with better music than ProBrands ;-)
I agree for a jobsite radio a cd player probably isn't that practical. However if it could read mp3's on burnt cd's that would be nice. You can toss a few hundred songs on a cd and not risk bringing an expensive ipod in to a worksite.
In a few years people will be having the same nostalgic conversation about CDs that was just posted about 8 tracks. Ridgid is right to exclude a CD player from the new radio.
I was shopping for ski jacket, and they all had pockets specifically designed for iPods and holes to route the earphone cords. Some jackets even have "stop" and "play" buttons integrated into the exterior of the sleeve.
I'm having my iPod surgically implanted into my ear drum.
Kids these days are afraid to have a second of silence in their lives.
And yes, I'm 31 years old and already a sarcastic curmudgeon.
