Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by working so far contrary to other opinions mine is working fine so far. The only complaint as others have mentioned is the short life. I mean, with a battery half the physical size, what do expect? The small size of the battery actually makes the weight distribution a little funny. I'm used to the big batteries on Makita's and deWalt's. October 21, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not worth It. Doesn't last long run time is very poor and so pricey. Very disappointed. October 11, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 12 volt batteries Bought a 12 volt RIDGID drill with 2 batteries both are dead will not spend anymore money for a lousy product. March 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BATTERY FIX!!! It is a common problem for these batteries to just stop working (both lights on the charger indicating a defective battery). This happened to one of my two and I couldn't send it in for warranty because I didn't fill out the warranty papers (company bought the tools and its easier to buy new than warranty) I popped the top off the battery and found that the 0 ohm resistor had fried, I just soldered in a piece of wire as a jumper and BOOM the battery charges again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Complete garbage I love Ridgid tools. And I have had great experience with the 18volt Lithium-Ion batteries. But these little 12v batteries do not work at all. I am tired of sending them in to be replaced. They are too small to start with and make the tools under powered. And they fail quickly. D.O.A. The larger capacity version of this battery DOES seem to have enough power and seems to hold up. In my opinion Ridgid should discontinue this little battery, substitute the larger battery, and anyone going to the trouble to send in a dead little version should be rewarded with a larger capacity replacement. I think the quality brand of Ridgid depends on action like this. June 13, 2013
