Q:I currently have a GEN1 power source however it does not have the small round plug on it. I don't believe it is compatible with the mat. Does this Mat Light include a GEN2 power source?

    A:  Yes it does, as quoted as Bullet #3 under the product overview section “Each light comes equipped with a power source with USB charging for additional devices”

      A:  It comes with a power source that has the round plug on the side, and the light mat DOES require that round plug. However, as for the USB port this new power source is a step down because is only outputs 1.0 am to the USB port and my old ones that look like your photo are marked as 2.1 amps for USB.

        Q:Is this a GEN2 power source, as the current version (GEN1) only has one USB port, and does not have any 3.5mm (?) jack or port on the side for the power cable to plug into as shown in the photo? And when will these newer versions be available to purchase separately?

        A:  Hi MagicHands0419 This is the same power source currently being sold as a bare tool. It has 1 USB port and a small round plug in port for the power supply to the mat. Thanks for asking. Greg

          A:  The power sources are not marked Gen1, Gen2, etc, but I have two of the RIDGID USB Power Sources (https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-18-Volt-USB-Portable-Power-Source-with-Activate-Button-AC86072B/206936434 ... the packages had model # AC86072B on them but they are marked R86072) without the round side jack and they each have a single USB port that will output 2.1 amps. This new light comes with a different model number power source (marked as R86073B) and it has the side jack as well as a single USB port that is rated at 1.0 amp. I know there was a prior model that I think was designed to power a heated coat and it sounds similar to this new model that comes with this light, but I'm not certain they are they same and I don't have that one so I don't know what model # it was. Hopefully this helps you.

            Q:I asked the previous question which was not satisfactorily answered, so let clarify and ask again. Is there a way to mount or secure the battery and power source onto the light map for when it is hung up? Without any pocket or some other way to support the weight of the battery and power source, it would be hanging unsupported from the small power cable into the mat light assembly.

            A:  Hi MagicHands0419, The power source has a clip on the back that clips into a hole in the mat to support it. Thanks for asking. Greg

              A:  Yes, you can hang the batter and power source/adapter from the mat light. You can't see it from the photo, but underneath the battery adapter is a loop that you can hang the adapter and battery from. There is a clip on the back of the adapter. Hope that helps!

              A:  Yes. You can even see it in the picture if you'd look at it. While hanging the batter and GEN2 clip onto the light mat. Just look at the picture(s).

                Q:Home Depot: since this is a new product please make this suggestion/update to RIDGID before product release for high success vs. mediocre, until version 2.0 correction.

                A:  No. But I suspect something could be easily rigged up.....such as a self adhesive hook or a zip tie that would suffice.

                  A:  Hi MagicHands0419, The battery does lock into place when it is pushed on. Thanks for asking. Greg

                    A:  There is a belt style clip that attaches the battery to the mat light itself.
