Ridgid Introduces New 4.0 Ah and 2.0 Ah Lithium 18V Batteries
Enhanced Performance and Compatibility
Ridgid has made a significant announcement regarding its new premium lithium 18V batteries. The brand is excited to introduce the 2.0 Ah and 4.0 Ah batteries that are fully compatible with the existing 18V slide packs. It’s important to note that these batteries are not to be confused with the orange Ridgid power tools; they are specifically designed to complement the Ridgid brand’s signature red pipe (Emerson) side.
Cutting-Edge Features for Optimal Performance
The newly upgraded battery incorporates advanced, high-energy density cells that offer enhanced performance for a variety of applications. These batteries come equipped with essential safety features, including short circuit protection, over current protection, over discharge protection, and cell balancing. Additionally, they are engineered to withstand higher temperatures, making them suitable for use in extreme conditions. Operating seamlessly in sub-zero temperatures ranging from 29°F (-20°C) to 158°F (70°C), these batteries provide reliable power. The thermal protection mechanism ensures that the battery pack automatically shuts down if it exceeds or falls below the specified temperature range. To prevent any damage to the battery pack, over-discharge protection is also included to prevent discharging beyond its usable point.
Unparalleled Power and Longevity
When it comes to battery-powered punching tools, all Ridgid devices come equipped with a standard 2.0 Ah battery. With this battery, you can expect over 200 compressions per charge. However, for those seeking extended runtime, the 4.0 Ah battery offers over 400 compressions. It’s unlikely that one would require such extensive usage before their lunch break, so the message is clear: shed some weight! Both batteries boast an impressive lifespan of approximately 400-500 charges, ensuring durability and long-term use.
Faster Charging Times and Unmatched Performance
“With our next-generation 18V Li-ion battery platform, we can maximize tool uptime while reducing battery size and weight,” says Christopher Burton, Ridgid Global Marketing Manager. The newest battery model maintains backward compatibility with existing 18V slide packs. Moreover, the charging times have been significantly improved, with the 2.0 Ah battery now taking just 30 minutes to charge, and the 4.0 Ah battery taking 45 minutes. It’s only a matter of time before these cutting-edge batteries find their way into Ridgid’s line of power tools. With extensive testing, it has been proven that using a 4.0 Ah battery pack provides an almost unimaginable boost in runtime and torque compared to its smaller single-layer counterpart.
We eagerly await the arrival of these groundbreaking batteries.
