          Nailer does not work even with high capacity batt.
          I bought this product less than a year ago or so, and didnt want to put a review until I have used it enough. This tool is the most frustrating tool to use. The electronics wont trigger like its dead. Often times and Im not exaggerating, I have to pull the battery out and reinsert it. Its not any nail or cartridge issue.

            Time saver!
            Quick and easy to use. Great time saver vs traditional nailing. Put up siding and paneling fairly efficiently. After the first 100 or so nails the gun seemed to have trouble reading the nails, issue was fixed after pulling the nails out and reseating them in place. Pairs well with a 4 ah battery, anything heavier and it may fatigue you. I would recommend the LED light to be raised and leaned forward to provide a better view of exact nailing location.

              I think its going to be hit or miss out of the box
              Out of the box the gun looks and feels great. I love that it has a small pointed no-mar tip to protect the wood from the gun. However the nailer I bought didn't work flawlessly out of the box. It locked up when I tried to fire it the first few times so I thought it needed some lubrication on the hammer. The touch of oil fixed the lock up but it still has issues. It lacks the power to drive 2" nails for liners. I really wanted this gun to work for me but it doesn't. Had for ask for my money back.

                  If it works it could be ok!
                  Purchased one brand new out of Home Depot. Used it for 20 min. Shot about 30pc 18 gauge nails before nailer completely stopped working.

                    Amazing
                    I decided to close in my hen house before the snow flies this winter. I used 1 11/2 inch and 5/8 inch brad nails and a 2 ah battery. I shot 700 1 1/2 nails and 400 plus 5/8 nails on one battery. The only thing I don't like about it is the 5 nail count stop. Ryobi airstrike does the same thing. When theres 5 nails left the gun won't fire again. In some instances that would be good. But I prefer emptying the mag before stopping. I dump the 5 and pop in another stick. Absolutely an amazing tool. Good job ridgid. Look close and you'll see the star of this picture.

                      This is a really nice easy to use brad nailer. I loaded with 9/16" brad nails as well as 2" for the use test and it performed great with both, easy to load nails into the tool. I was very impressed with the power, it can be adjusted to meet the demands of the material and nail size you are using. The drill depth is also adjustable, you can leave the nail head showing or drive all the way into the material. It has a perfectly positioned light that helps brighten dark areas. The tool itself is heavy, adding the battery (not included) to the tool doesn't seem to have much impact to the overall weight and the batteries are pretty light weight. In the end I think this tools is awesome for DIY or smaller jobs. For large jobs it will probably be too heavy and a air nailer might be better. The tool is awesome and performs to the standards you would expect form Ridgid.

                      This RIDGID 18 Volt Lithium Ion brushless cordless 18 gauge 2-1/8 inch brad nailer is a handy tool for the home or shop. The best thing about this nailer is that you don’t need to have a small compressor on hand, just a freshly charged battery. This nailer is perfect for finish work like door or floor moldings. It is not light weight but is lighter than an air compressor operated pneumatic nail gun. I have a few 2 A/Hr. batteries and they don’t add much weight. This nail gun holds 105 18 gauge brad nails from 5/8 inch to 2 1/8 inches in length. The gun has a no-mar rubber tip to prevent marring softer woods. To Adjust for the nail length and hardness of the wood use the drive power knob on the top of the nailer. There is also a fine depth adjustment knob. The nailer can be set by a switch to single sequence actuation or contact actuation. I also like how easy it is to clear a jammed nail from the head, just lift the lever and the head opens to remove a jammed nail. I was surprised it did not come with a Ridgid 636181001 Belt Clip. Its handy to slip the nail gun in your belt instead of having to put it down especially if you are on a ladder. It even has a handy LED light built in. I am very pleased to add this versatile tool to my collection and it works with all the Ridgid 18 Volt batteries. Be sure to register your tool within 90 days to get the full lifetime warranty .

                      I can't stress how nice it is to not have a coiled or straight air hose to deal with! This Ridgid 18 volt brad nailer is great for my needs in the shop. I'm not a commercial or even professional woodworker. I make or install much of my own trim around the house and I make some smaller furniture, valances, and other decor. Having a versatile brad nailer that isn't tethered to an air comprrsssor has been wonderful (I imagine a professional would be even more impressed) and I can't recommend this one enough. It has depth and pressure adjustments to dial in the appropriate amounts you need for your project and ergonomics are comfortable. Compatibility with my other 18 volt Ridgid batteries means I don't have to buy new batteries, too. The see-through cartridge helps to know how many nails you have remaining which is a bonus. The only downsides I have experienced is the weight and light. I have been using my 6ah Octane battery (this isn't an Ocatane tool so it doesn't have to be an Octane battery) and the nailer can get a little heavy after extended use. For the light, simply pit, it doesn't work. The light shines above the nail head so you can't really see where it is when it's dark. But let's be honest.. who is installing trim or building cabinets in the dark anyway?
