Answer: 
It seems some batteries you can get the LSA on (example the 12V as of today Model # AC82048)
Others you can't.
BE VERY tenacious about your LSA registration. Lithium Ion batteries are still relatively new so I'd guess Emerson has to limit their exposure to risk by not giving every battery a LSA.
It is frustrating - the batteries are so expensive.

Buy it as a kit and you get the life warranty so never worry about having to purchase another battery or charger. No reason to jog from one outlet to the other!

Answer: 
It depends on how long you would need to operate the tool. If you would be running it under a continuous load, the battery would probably last around 15 minutes or so. Be warned when they lose power there is no warning. The tool will run like a champ and then abruptly quit when the juice is gone. Batteries are convenient, but I would get a spare. If you don't need convenience get the corded version. They Read More

if you have other EIGHTEEN (18v) Ridgid tools go with the 18V version. Otherwise go corded.

We do apologize but, we are not able to advise whether to purchase a corded or cordless version of this tool. Without knowing your future plans for usage. We can state that the corded version will help to cut down on the need for replacement batteries in the future but, it will cut down on portability and convenience.

Including batteries) Don't forget to mail in copies of your receipt(s) to Ridgid, or your LSA will not be valid, and Ridgid will not honor the warrantee. If you have a tool or battery replaced under warrantee, you will have to re-register the new tool or battery. Warning! It will take months to get something repaired and weeks to get a battery replaced. If you need warrantee work, be sure to take the entire tool (with kit accessories), the battery and the battery charger to the service center. They will want to see all or part of it. You will also need all paperwork on the tool. Good Luck! Read Less

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 207 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk I bought this multi tool and a similar product from harbor freight for a diy window replacement project. The harbor freight one is corded and loud, but is still running strong. Was also about 1/4 the price. I have had repeated problems with a short in the unit. Home depot would not replace, but took it back to fix. 6 weeks later still not functioning correctly. I am finally throwing it out. What a waste of money. July 31, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Worked for 6 months Tool worked amazing for 6 months, im a flooring installer, so i use it only to undercut door jambs, not heavy work at all. Today the tool just quit, battery said defective when i put it on the charger. So had to leave the job, drive to depot, bought the $70 bigger 12v battery, the small one sucks!!! Back to job, plug new battery in and the tool itself started smoking in my hand! Bam! For 20 bucks more could if just bought the tool over again. And this is what happens when you use a tool maid by RYOBI! Ridigd and ryobi are the same company just so ya know. Stick with what works. Dewalt, black and yellow all the way June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Addition to the Toolbox I purchased this tool to cut into door frames in my new construction for lighting and electrical. Its an amazing tool for many other things as well. I can't believe I waited so long to get around to buying one. The price and quality is also excellent. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jobmax One of the best tools I have purchased. Very good quality and easy to use. The tool was easy to assemble and the optional heads available will be purchased in the near future. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Versatile This is a great little tool for small jobs. I have used it to cut in flooring below door casings, stair stringer, cut notches into studs, grout removal, etc. It is small and lightweight and easy to get into tight spaces. I bought the reciprocating saw and jig saw job max attachments, and found that this 12V unit was quite under-powered even to cut through 2x4, however that is not a surprise and you can't knock it for that. This wont replace an 18V or corded tool in that regard, but for the little one offs in tight spaces it is great. August 11, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Buy the 18v version: this one is underpowered I bought this 12v cordless version of the Jobmax as I already had the 12v driver. I have no issues with the tool itself, but quickly discovered the oscillating cutting head sucks the life out of the small cartridge batteries after only two minutes of use. I bought a bigger 5.0Ah battery, and this works much better. Still, I have to run this tool with two chargers, swapping between four batteries, in order to avoid downtime. I often use an air compressor, so most of the time if I need this tool, I now use the air tool body that I bought, with much better results. Still, great cutting head, that can accept Dremel and Bosch blades, as well as the Ridgid ones. I've also got the jigsaw head and the angle drill head, which also work well. The pneumatic hammer head isn't much use, however. June 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One Of The Best Tools I Own I own and operate my own general contracting business. I normally use all Milwaukee when it comes to power tools. However when looking for a good oscillating tool Milwaukees was $119 for just the bare tool no battery no charger. after looking at every other brand I came upon Rigids JobMax cordless oscillating tool. for the same price it came with the tool, the battery, a charger as well as a carry bag and quite a few other accessories. Having heard good things about the Rigid brand I purchased it. What really got me excited about this tool was the different heads that can be attached to the tool. I also purchased a rotozip attachment and the small Sawzall attachment ad well as a bigger spare battery. I am more than pleased with my purchase. I won't do a single job without this tool with me. I am impressed with its power, battery life and durability. I would recommend this tool and the Rigid brand to anyone. This is now my second choice for any tool under my preferred Milwaukee. March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't know how I would do without it I have been a carpenter/contractor for 40+ years and this is one of the most useful tools I own. I had initially bought a competitors 12v. multitool and that was a mistake; while it did the job, the battery didn't last long and it wasn't very powerful. In certain situations, there isn't anything that will do the job better. I use it to plunge cut into baseboard, undercut door trim and jambs to install flooring, sand trim, spot sand drywall, cut holes in vinyl siding for outlets, and the list goes on. I have had mine for about a year and if I lost it, I would buy one again in days. And if it broke, Ridgid would give me another one for free! Great tool. April 17, 2015
