Questions & Answers

Is this just a plug in charger? Does it carry a charge?

Where and how does this power source get charged? Or is it just a plug in charger?
Asked by: Roo
This connects to any 18 volt Ridgid battery pack. You can then utilize the battery to charge your phone. The device itself does not hold any charge nor is it a battery in itself. It is just a connector/convertor for your 18 volt batter packs and gives you a USB connector to charge any device that can be charged via USB.

I can not find this for sale

I want to buy this product. All of my local Home Depot stores do not have it and can not tell me where to get it. It is not available online as far as I can tell. Any help?
Asked by: NAPA
You can have them ship it to Home Depot or other tool store in your area.

Does this latch onto the battery like other tools or does just slide on without latching (like battery on a charger)?

Asked by: Elvis
It click's on like a tool would but not as sturdy (moves a little), if pulled hard I think it might come off. But if not yanked on I don't see it coming off.

18-Volt USB Portable Power Source with Activate Button is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 113.

However, if you happen to be a member of the "fraternity" that observes the "disconnect-by-the-plug body -- not by pulling on the cord" rule, then be prepared to keep a pair of needle nosed pliers handy. Either the pliers or strong fingernails. As ingenious & innovative as Ridgid designers seem to be (most competitive products seem to fall a tad short of Ridgid's "make it better" mantra), I would have thought Ridgid would have spent a little extra on the injection mold & one or two extra parts to incorporate a simple USB plug ejection mechanism. I do give Ridgid credit for a well-protected USB port location considering the implied rough operating environment. Also, I would have paid a little extra to have had a "soft" carry/storage pouch to keep this component as dust-free as possible.

Would give it an excellent rating if it could be powered off while attached. The power button is a 1 way affair, which only turns it ON. To Turn it off, the device must be disconnected from the 18V battery.

I picked up the RIDGID USB 18V Battery adapter, because, like many handymen, you come home after a long day with a long drive, and you forget to charge the cellphone. I use a GoPro digital camera to make time lapse videos of my assembly jobs. As the camera is snapping pictures all day long, a battery will not last. And I have to deal with using a 120V power source to power the camera. I figured I would give it a try, and hook an 18V RIDGID 4amp hour battery up to the USB adapter, and plug my GoPro in to that. The GoPro ran for over a day (it stopped once, I guess that was the 8 hour auto shut off) I had it set for a picture every 2 seconds, so it took about 24,000 pictures [still not filling my 64 gig SD card] This will give me some flexibility in terms of where I can locate my GoPro when I want to make a time lapse video. I no longer have to run a lengthy extension cord to my camera. I did not plan on that when I purchased the RIDGID USB adapter.

Took this out of town with me because we would be on the road more than 5 hours, And this thing did everything I expected and more. I honestly charged my phone at least 6-8 times and still had enough juice in from when we got home 4 days later after the 5+ hour drive back home. Used it this weekend to charge my phone and ipad and worked great. Thinking about buying another but maybe with the battery and charger. Highly recommend this!! ALSO when removing the plug do so slow and as close as possible to avoid missing up the plug. AND I always Unplug mine after each use to save power. TRUST me this is worth the $20

Being able to use my Ridgid batteries to charge a phone or tablet is a great idea. I've used this adapter with my 4.oA batteries and they last forever. I was able to charge my iPhone several times without making a dent in the Ridgid battery pack level. My only complaint is that there really should be 2 usb ports. Suggestion for the next version, Ridgid...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome charger Charger works really well with my 4ah batteries. Even charges my iPad. Wish it had dual usb ports and maybe bump it up to 2.1 amps for faster charging on tablets. But all in all love it. Oh also would like to see these in store along with more Ridgid products as you would sell more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool Accessory This is a cool accessory to have around to charge your devices weather you are at a job site or up in the mountains and the power goes out for a day or so. As long as you have a few charged Ridgid batteries around and who doesn't you can charge your device. I bought 2 of them one for the wife and one for me. Registered them for the LSA and both were approved within 2 weeks. You never think of the power going out and if you need to charge your phone and there is no power slap one of these on a charged battery and your in business. A must have item in the toy box.

I have purchased five Ridgid products and three times I had to mail in the original receipt as they were not able to cross reference the purchase with the receipt codes provided. And the registration process needs to be complete within 90 days of purchase it puts unnecessary pressure on the customer.
