          Quick charge for 4.0aH battery.
          I have a few ridgid tools and this charger means I don’t really need a ton of batteries. I can use till close to empty, swap over and this has the batteries ready in very fast amount. The power cord has a slot for another item to plug in, so you don’t lose a plug if you decide to leave this plugged in. Easy to see LED to tell you how your charging going. Good and quick. Easy to throw the batteries in and get that fast charge up.

          Ridgid is the industry leader in tool quality and warranty
          I'm a big fan of Ridgid tools because of their lifetime warranty as long as you register their tools within a reasonable time span. This 18-volt rapid charger charges three times faster than most chargers. This particular charger does not come with any tools it's just sold as a tool only. Has indicators to show you when it's charging and when it's charged, it also has indicators to show you if the battery is defective. On the back is designed to be mounted on a wall or it can sit on the table. I Highly recommended and I believe will not disappoint.

          Great for high demand applications
          This charger is great for using with high-draw 18v power tools, like the circular saws and lawn tools. I have several batteries from across at least three generations. Mostly because I use my tools a lot and the basic chargers are pretty slow. This new rapid charger is a game changer. I can use a 4ah battery then throw it on the charger while I use a second battery. By the time the second one is used, the first one is charged. I would recommend this charger before buying more batteries.

            Truly Rapid
            Thanks to the RIDGID team for sending me this rapid charger to review. I have recharged by 2Ah batteries several times and it is truly rapid. By the time I go focus on something else and come back, the battery is fully charged. I also found the passthrough plug a nice bonus, so you don't lose an outlet.
