This former front page deal is back! Eligible for Lifetime Service Agreement because it is a kit with a charger. I purchased it the last time and I already have LSA confirmed.

Updating title to YMMV because it appears it may be store pickup only in some locations.

This is the newly released version of Ridgid's standard capacity battery (thanks x_workman_x). The new higher output version is the "Max Output". The new batteries are backwards compatible with the previous 18v lines (regular and Octane), and older 18v batteries are forward compatible with the new line of tools they are releasing.

ICYMI, Ridgid is retiring the "Octane" line and revamping with the Max Output tools, which are supposed to be a little more compact and brushless.

I'm assuming they're talking about HD's return trick when they had a promo of "buy this combo, get a free bare tool". You can return the "free" tool for a portion of the total cost.

Quote from VegasGuy89183 :
If you are not in a hurry, you can get a smoking hot deal like I did in November of 2020. I bought a three tool compact combo kit with a charger and two 2.0 Ah batteries with LSA for $199. I returned the free tool, an impact wrench that I don't need, and netted out at $117 and change. So for $117 I got a compact 1/2" brushless drill and a brushless driver with two 2.0 Ah batteries with charger and LSA. That beats every other brand I know of.
Although apparently tolerated by HD, buying a package and returning one tool violates my sense of fair play. I expect the store to be fair with me and I act that way with them as well.

Yes. I did this with two different sets and got a Subcompact impact wrench for $80 and a large kit with recip, impact driver, drill, 2ah, 4 ah, flood light, charger, bag for $187. All LSA.

Quote from ViperDaSnake :
Octane batteries are only supposed to be noticeably different when paired with Octane tools.
To be clear, all 18v Rigid batteries are supposed to work with all 18v Rigid tools.
I have the Octane saw and I cannot make a full depth cut on a non octane battery but the Octane battery makes the same cut and doesn't stall.
So would these batteries in this deal provide as much power as the Octane Batteries? Not sure if I should try to stock up on extra octanes for my Octane tools, or if the new ones are equivalent to them.

The short answer is no. But they will power your octane tools as long as you don't need the maximum amperage under a full load. I regularly use my Non-octane batteries on my octane tools.

Ok thank you. I assume that the Max Output batteries *would* provide at least the same amount of power as the Octane batteries, correct? Ex: these -- https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGI.../315320800

it appears Ridgid is claiming that these new "Max output batteries" are superior to the octane ones. I'm a bit skeptical myself but here is the source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PhDAuop2TE

I told the gal at Home Depot the set was a Christmas gift from my wife and that I didn't need the impact wrench. It was still unopened in its original box. They refunded $88.70 for the impact wrench.

they must be separate line items on the receipt, the return value of each item is clearly stated... if it's a "kit" or single line item combo set, it can't be returned.

Quote from Diplowmatic :
True. Octane line is done. That being said octane brushless with octane does create some more power but even without octane batteries they're plenty powerful and will not make or break getting the job done.
Not only they might still not get the job done, but they also get drained sooner. I got a 9ah battery and does not last as much as I wish it did. However, I'm still happy with all my Ridgid tools since I got them all dirt cheap when they got clearanced out by Home Depot and they are actually great for home owners that like to do DIY

I want to get into Ridgid. This seems like I should buy this 2pk 4 this and get a bare tool to start. Is the octane series a noticeable difference? Thanks
You notice a big difference between the two if you have an octane tool for the battery, otherwise it is just a longer lasting battery

This a great deal for anyone with only 2A batteries or anyone that needs more 4A batteries. I might pick these up to replace some 2A batteries that don't have warranty coverage.

For you tinkerers out there, you can 3D print adapters to use Ridgid batteries on any 18V tool or use other brand batteries on Ridgid tools.
