Re: Drill battery upgrade
Howard, I got the same good advice here, and have been using the 14.4 volt battery for my 12 volt Ridgid right angle impact driver. My complaint was that the 12volt battery seemed to drain down very fast while using the tool and a higher amp hour battery was needed. Well, the 14.4 volt is a much higher AH battery and the tool has been working just fine. I don't use the right angle driver professionally and when I do use it, I run it for a few minutes at a time. I don't know how a 12volt drill would hold up under the higher voltage but if the person who gave you the advice said it was okay, I believe him. Good upgrade and well worth the money. Good luck.
