Do these larger batteries fall off do to vibration? Just saw something that has me concerned. Hoping it was just a fluke or one time thing. I'll be up in trees with the octane 9ah, 3ah, Octane hammer drill, octane recip. saw, and gen 5x impact wrench. Any thoughts from those who have experience with these batteries, the tools, and heights?

Asked by: Jim
I have not found any tools that come with this battery. The only way to get this battery with the lifetime service agreement is in the Charger/Battery Kit model # AC801. There are also a couple of other battery only options, but they only have a 3 year warranty.

18-Volt OCTANE 9.0 Ah Lithium-Ion Battery and Charger Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 225.

It is definitely bigger and heavier than the more standard 4.0ah battery, but it was not really noticeable to me as a home user and it definitely provides significant runtime. The larger dimension of this battery will prevent you from using the brushless Gen5X circular saw at full depth of cut, and I assume (but don't know since this is the only circular saw I have) other circular saw models will have the same problem. This depth of cut is not a problem for me in most of what I cut, and if it was I would just use the 4.0ah battery temporarily anyway. This 9.0ah battery weighs 1164g (about 2.57lbs) while the 4.0ah battery weighs 724g (about 1.6lbs). It is nice to have batteries with the Octane boost so that the newer, more power hungry tools can be run at their full potential.

I paired this with an 8 inch Nils Ice Auger at the recommendation of a friend. So far, this is a beast. Granted, we only have about 8 inches of ice at the moment but this drilled 50 holes without any hesitation and still shows a full charge. The price is a great deal but it was the warranty that sold me on the product. Nobody beats it. I've already had 2 other fishing buddies order the same set-up after using mine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My review of the Ridgid 9ah battery consists of three things. Charging time, weight, and runtime.... My review of the Ridgid 9ah battery consists of three things. Charging time, weight, and runtime. I do not care about Bluetooth connectivity. To me Bluetooth for a battery is just a gimmick. I don't need to look at my phone to know where my battery is. Now I own several Ridgid tools, and I really do not need this size battery, except for one tool I own. The cordless vac. This thing is a battery eater. So my review is based on runtime in the vac, and compares it to the other size batteries I own. Charging time for this battery, takes about 1:15 hours from one bar to full. Weight: Obviously this battery is large, and it weighs in at 40.74oz or approx 2-1/2 lbs. Add that to a drill and its pretty heavy, especially drilling overhead. Size: One reviewer mentioned that the 9ah battery would not fit into the Ridgid fan, and one reviewer said it would. There is no way the 9ah battery will fit into the Ridgid fan. It is physically too big. Runtime: Pretty basic test. I put the fully charged 9ah battery into my Ridgid cordless vac, turned it on, and timed how long it ran. Below are the results. 2ah @ 5:28 weighing at 16.51oz 4ah @ 10:23 weighing at 25.04 oz 5ah @ 13.57 weighing at 27.65 oz 6ah @ 17:36 weighing at 28.82 oz 9ah @ 27:26 weighing at 40.74 oz I wouldn't recommend continuously running the vac, as the battery gets pretty warm, but it gives you an idea of the power of the 9ah Now results may very, so take this information with a grain of salt. I will primarily use this size battery for my vac. For me this battery adds too much weight to my other tools, but that is my 56 year old body talking. As far as the Bluetooth, I don't use it.

Only had it for a couple if days due to holiday shipping slow downs, but so for it has been good. For those planning to use it with the hand held circular saw, it is too tall to get full cutting depth with this battery. You have to reduce your cutting depth in order to get the battery to fit between the batter attachment slot and the base plate of the saw. Also it is heavy so if you do not need the power, if you are just doing light drilling you are better off getting several smaller batteries instead of one larger one. This batteries best uses are for the 1/2 inch impact, the reciprocating saw, the large hammer drill, and the angle grinder for people who are going have a lot of continuous use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery falls off of tool I purchased this 9a battery and charger in September of 2018 to use with the sawzall. After a few weeks the battery would fall off during use because the locking mechanism was not designed properly. A representative of ridgid saw my first review and reached out to correct the problem. They sent we a new battery and had me send the old one back. Apparently they admitted a flaw in the locking mechanism and had a fix for it. Well after another month of use the battery is falling off the tool again. One of the two orange wedges that hold the battery in place broke off as well and I have not used this new battery in any excessive manner. Now the rep who reached out has no interest in responding to my latest issue so it's time to write a review for the replacement. I think this battery is too large and heavy for the existing locking mechanism design.

It came in the time that they stated, the rigid line appears to be an excellent line, the only issue is that they have changed their policy and no longer warranty their batteries separately, forcing you to buy a charger everytime you want your battery warrantied as they no longer warranty the batteries bought separately themselves for some reason. They need to go back to their original policy for when people bought their tools where you buy a battery and it is warranted, otherwise it is excellent.

I have not been able to use the full charge in these 9 ah batteries. I use it in a saws all to trim small branches when cutting up dead and fallen trees. Even cutting 2 inch branches for nearly 4 hours and I still had power left. Maybe in the summer when using a circular saw or driving 3 inch deck screws all day I may be able to completely use up one of these batteries.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Octane 9aH Bluetooth Battery Will NOT connect to APP I've spent over $2,000 on ridgid tools and totally believe in the Ridgid line of products until now. I bought 3 of these batteries. Had problems connecting all three batteries but was eventually able to connect 2 of them. The 3rd battery I just couldn't connect at all... I love the concept of the battery bluetooth with an App but to be clear my left rating is due to my disappointment that they didn't work. I had such high hopes his this collection of batteries purchased. As if today, I can't recommend this product until this is fixed. I'm just so disappointed and wasted so much of my time getting 2 of them to connect. Finally, I noticed for the 2 that connected that their connection status isn't reliable even within the same room.
