So far, so good!
I'm glad that a replacement for this older battery is still available,albeit at a price.I was down to one working battery, and this alternative was cheaper than buying a whole new combo set of tools.The actual new battery was difficult to release from the charger after the first recharge, but slightly filing down the plastic locking nibs fixed that problem.

I have been using Ridgid since 2006 when I bought the hammer drill, the reciprocating saw and a circular saw all Ni-Cad 18V battery powered, brought 2 of them plus the charger and the bag...I use to live in Florida then...Now I live in Puerto Rico and there are Ridgid representative here but wouldn't honor the lifetime warranty as they use to do in Florida...My question is...I tried the Lithium battery with one of my power tools and it worked...Can I still use it on daily basis?...What can I do with the Ni-Cad batteries that I have not working (They don't hold charge)?...Where can I send them?. Thanks for your time.
