Customer Questions & Answers

Are these two 12v Li battery chargers interchangeable - r86049 & r86045 ? what is the difference?

I purchased the r9000k 12v combo kit which includes the r86045 batter charger and r82059 & r82049 batteries. Can I also use the r86049 battery charger with these batteries?
Asked by: krazkix
My experience with the R86045 is that it would not function properly with the 2.0 ah battery. I have had no problems charging the 2.0 ah or the 4.0 ah battery with the R86049

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad purchase Worked for a year then the batteries died, purchased 2 new batteries, then the charger died, warranty is a joke.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Batteries and Charger are short lived. Batteries and charger only last about 1 year. After that they need to be replaced. The lifetime warranty is not as is advertised. After filling out the paperwork they only warrantied for three years and now looking to purchase batteries and charger to keep the drill going. The drill is small and good for the work I do but for price given with the expectation of lifetime warranty on tool and batteries, this has turned out to be a bad purchase. The warranty paperwork and detailed process is designed to discourage the user from following the process. I did and still only recieved 3 years. Next problem is calling Rigid Service. Get ready to be on hold for a long time and don't be surprised if you get disconnected. You can repeat this process several times and may get through but I never did and gave up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Excessively short life span This thing did not last 20 charges. Unfortunately, I had to buy another one to charge my four batteries. Go with the AC power head and forget this battery powered feature/hassle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I liked the tool very much while it lasted, but now it's pretty much useless. The battery charge is only good for drilling 5 holes, and then goes dead. Put the dead battery in the charger, and it runs for only 4 or 5 minutes and then shuts down.
