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 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 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

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dajgart No Lifetime Warranty
The battery performs well and is a big improvement over previous generations, however I am very disappointed to learn that it is not eligible for the Ridgid Lifetime Warranty program.
Unfortunately for me, I didn't know this when I purchased the battery as all available literature makes it seem like you can "upgrade" to the Lifetime Warranty once you complete the registration process.
Had I known this prior to purchase, I would not have spent the extra money for this battery.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bernie A very powerful battery. I love the LED feature
I gave this product 4 Stars as I just bought the battery recently and haven't actually used it to perform any work related projects yet. My Ridgid drill runs great with this battery, but that's without a load. The battery seems to be very powerful. I will be able to give a much more accurate evaluation in a few months or a year after I have had a chance to use it for a while. I really do like the LED feature that allows you to view the amount of charge left in the battery at any given time. Very handy.

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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed44 Replacement battery for my Ridge combo kit
I had to replace my battery for my Ridge combo kit, both of the original batteries stopped working after about 3 years. Over all the battery works well although I believe the old batteries held a longer charge. I like the battery meter to let you know at a quick glance how much power is left in the battery. I find it funny that this replacement battery is $99. 00 and I can
