Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimPolandJr easy to maintain
This battery is super awsome and will last longer on a charge than any other battery I have ever used. I have had Dewalt, and Craftsman and got rid of every single one of them. They just did not measure up to the performance of my beloved ridged tools and batteries. Super fast charges and the charge will last all day. I screwed every board on a 40'L x 15'w deck with railing with just the full charge of one battery. Will NEVER buy or use any other cordless or corded tool other than a RIDGID!!!! They are #1 in my book.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DirtyDeeds Good tool but not perfect.
I really like Ridgid tools and own quite a few including this tool which I acquired in an X4 kit.
For the most part this is a great tool. The grip is very comfortable, the second trigger for the LED light is a must have now that I'm use to it.
Surprisingly the size of this tool is not much bigger then the compact Ridgid drill/driver I own. It weighs a bit more but the size is awesome.
The handle is easy to put on at different angles and feels pretty secure once in place.
This tool has alot of power and can get away from you if your not careful.
Having the choice between hammer/drill/driver is awesome, it makes this a very versatile tool.
The only area of concern I have for this tool is the chuck. While it is a quality Jacobs chuck I have found mine is running out on the outer black plastic sleeve. The bit runs true but the black part wobbles a bit. It's not a big deal but it looks awful imo. I've done some research and have come to realize this is an issue quite a few people are having.
The hammer action I find is a bit light but comparable to other cordless hammer drills. It drills holes in brick and stone with ease.
Overall the drill is great, it's powerful and comfortable. I recommend it and give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JGym Hyper vs XCP
I have both the 18V Hyperformance btty and the XCP 19.2 V. from another brand.
I did a comparison on both, drilling 3/4" holes using a separate spade bit for each drill into 2x4 stud.
Now to be fair, the XCP is a slightly higer voltage, but the Ridgid drill I was using has a higher torque and speed rating vs the other brands drill. So take this as you will.
The "unscientific" results: Ridgid hyperformance drilled 41 1/2 holes, while the XCP drilled 86 holes.
Now the Hyperformance combo set I purchased, I am quite pleased with. The drills are an upgrade from the other brand I have, and I do like the Hyper btty, I just think this Hyperformance btty is a bit over priced, IMHO.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Getaclue No lifetime service agreement
Part of the lure of the ridgid X4 line was the lifetime service agreement across the product line but when I tried to register this with ridgid their website indicates it doesn't qualify. The Homedepot listing however showed it as qualifying.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MLB153 Only has 3 year warranty
Make sure you are aware that this battery only has a 3 year warranty from Ridgid and doesn't qualify for Ridgid's LSA warranty.

Had to replace a battery but it WAS covered under the lsa and had no probs in doing so. Cant beat the power and length of the battery life. I have used mine ALL day driving deck screws and only after about 12 hrs did I change out batteries. LOVE IT!!!!! cant go wrong with RIDGID. And by the way the battery I replaced just had a manufactures defect, not a big deal, as it happens with everything.

Strong, long lasting battery. Replaced a Ni-cad with it, and it lasts longer, runs stronger - only downsides are: it takes a long time to charge, and I used to be able to buy 2 Ni-cad's for the price of one of these Lithium batteries. I'll be buying another one in the near future.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mape The drills are excellant, but batteries leave you speechless
I recently bought 6 months ago a Ridgid two piece cordless drill set. But after 6 charges one of the batteries does not take a charge anymore. I think next time I'll pay more money for the Makita brand,
which I have owned for five years with no battery problems
