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.

Thanks for posting OP! I've been waiting for this deal to come back.

To all the newcomers to the Ridgid line, don't forget to register the batteries online for the Lifetime Service Agreement (LSA). Some folks assume the lifetime warranty is automatic -- nope. No lifetime warranty unless you register WITHIN 90 DAYS of the purchase date.

Second this. I bought my initial set back in 2009. My batteries started going bad (not holding as long of a charge). I called them up and within 15 minutes, I had 2 new batteries being shipped to me.

Quote from VegasGuy89183 :
I got this deal 03/04/21. If you are into the Ridgid ecosystem then this is a great deal. The best part is these 18v batteries are compatible with the old Ni-Cad 18v battery tools. Even though Ridgid will replace 18v Ni-Cad batteries if you have LSA, these new Lithium batteries have more amp/hrs, are lighter and are smaller. They breathe new life into your old Ridgid Ni-Cad tools. I received my LSA confirmation for this kit yesterday, 03/30/21.
What is LSA ?
How did that return work? did you have to ship them back to Ridgid?

THanks!

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
I like my octane's no complaints. But if you were considering this deal, i'd look even harder at https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGI.../206127587. Same 2x 4AH batteries + brushless hammer drill and brushless impact driver. VERY solid set for $179.

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.
Except for my 9ah and my portable fan Frown

If you buy from amazon you will not get to register them for the LSA (lifetime service agreement) basically it is like a lifetime warranty.

You have to buy your Ridgid stuff from home depot or direct tools (only the new, or factory blemished qualify for LSA. Factory reconditioned don't qualify for LSA.

*EDITED TO REFLECT THE CORRECT TERMINOLGY AS STATED BELOW (THANKS FOR THE CORRECTION)

Small correction - Ridgid tools at Directtools are new, or factory reconditioned, or factory blemished. Factory reconditioned don't qualify for LSA. New and Blemished DO qualify for LSA

These use the older batteries.

I have exactly that problem with old batteries and a less old saw. Thank you.

Correct - but this thread is for just their normal 2x 4ah li-ion batteries, not octanes, not max output lines. The package I linked has 2x 4ah normal li-ion batteries, not going to be any real difference.

Quote from wlderdude :
The Megamax console doesn't work well with the normal 4 AH batteries. When under hard use, I've had problems with it faulting out. I was drilling holes in a thick slab of concrete that really was taxing the roto hammer. Had to keep removing the battery and putting it back on to reset the fault. Once I got the 6 AH Octane, it cut the holes with no issue. I don't know about any of the other Octane tools as my non-Octane are working fine.

I will say that the Ridgid Megamax system is incredible. The sawzall attachment makes it into a beast the likes of which I never thought possible. With the amount of power it brings to the table, the blades hardly get hot, cut fast, and don't get hot. It was never really marketed, and they only ever carried it in a few stores. It's a shame it didn't catch on.

If you were interested in Ridgid, you should probably start with a drill set, though.
When you are continuously use small battery with high drawing amp tools. Batteries will get hot and circuit board will shut down automatic to save the battery.
