Ridgid Lithium-ion Power Tool Batteries – Every Available Model

RIDGID cordless tool batteries

Ridgid has made a lot of lithium-ion tool batteries over the years. While we’ve seen the expiration of Ridgid Hyper Lithium-ion batteries and Ridgid Octane, we now have Ridgid Max Output batteries and newer packs that promise increased power or compactness. Over the years, the power density has increased dramatically—and charge times have dropped. Ridgid 18V Lithium-ion tool batteries range in capacity from 1.5Ah to 6Ah or more.

The smallest Ridgid battery now charges in just 20 minutes, while their 6Ah pack takes around 90 minutes to completely recharge.

Ridgid batteries all include electronics that protect the packs against overcharging, overheating, and overloading. They also provide excellent cold-weather performance which lets the lithium-ion batteries operate down to -4⁰F.
