Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ChillerWayne Second double failure
I originally purchased a combo kit just to use at home due to the lower price . I won't mention the normal brand the I use but I'll simply say that I've gone through a total of four of rigid a lithium batteries. My normal brand has been beat up and used many times as long with no failures yet.
The first rigid failure, I was lucky enough to run into a rep at HD and he gave me a free( by mail) third battery if I bought two. All these brands do the same basic function but some have more frequent failures.
Almost forgot I was told that my last two were still under the warranty period now I only need a receipt!!!@?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Senorllaves Both batteries are dead
Couple years old and both batteries are dead.
Based on web search, this appears to be an ongoing issue that they do not addresss.
Im guessing that they like the replacement battery revenue stream.
Can you say planned obsolescence?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gutterman lifetime my butt.
This battery seemed great for a short time. After a few months would only run down 1/4 of the way, I thought it was a fluke until it happened to a second battery. Then it happened to a third and about 7 months of not a lot of use they would not charge at all. I made the mistake of not registering the tools and was told since they were more than 30 days old there was nothing they could do. I love the tools, all of my Ridgid tools but the batteries in my opinion are junk. Wish they would just replace them with new, they say lifetime. If they would stand behind them like other brands they are the only brand I would buy. I have about 40+ battery tools and 6 different brands and for the tools themselves they are the best all around but the batteries themselves are junk.

I am so happy that I bought this radio. I was so surprised at the quality of sound that this little guy has. I plugged my MP-3 player into it's aux plug and it was music to the ears. Wow. Although it isn't a heavy radio, the carrying handle is nice to use. I love how the knob scans for a station, unlike so many radio's where you have to keep turning the knob to find a station that is clear to listen to. This is definitely the radio of choice when I'm out at the pool. The power pack battery does not add much weight to the radio and I like that there are indicators to show me how much power I still have before needing a recharge. I'm very very happy with this Rigid Radio and Battery pack and Charger Unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ApartmentOwner Great Battery - Decent Radio
The charger and battery are awesome! Charges up very quickly. I especially like the indicator lights on the battery that show how many bars of power remain. Also it has a nice long battery life too. I was driving deck screws for 4 hours and it never hesitated. Great power! This will be my go-to battery. When I saw the radio for the first time I was surprised by how small it was, but it does put out a really good sound for the size. Because it's small it's easily portable. Nice features like a built-in MP3/iPod port, convenient handle and straps to mount or secure the radio. Very simple to use. Overall, super impressed with the battery and charger and the radio is a nice bonus to make the time fly by while you're working!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Geoworks I thought Ridgid stood for better quality than DeWalt but I was wrong
Bought a Ridgid combo 18 Volt Drill and Impact set with charger and two batteries, one has failed, will not take a charge.
These batteries are way costly, to buy a replacement, should have stayed with DeWalt, they stand behind quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Med913 Great Value Deal
I purchased this set to get the battery and got a radio and charger for the same price as a battery by itself. Will leave the radio at home for shop use and have put the battery in with a prior Impact/drill combo kit with radio that I had purchased months ago. Radio is great on the job, great reception, sound, size and very durable. The 2.0 amp battery works great and gives a little more run time than the stock 1.5 amp ones I got with the other kit. The charger will go in with the 5pc combo kit I just got to supplement recharging for that set.
