Ridgid battery upgrade option with LSA!
« on: Jan 23, 2018, 11:20 AM »
theses were sold out because they were only 130$ on sale. they have been sold out for quite a while now and just now are available again. if you buy one just watch for them to go on sale and have them price match it for you in store. you have 90 days for the price match/return policy.
to try to break it down. the 4 amp battery is 110$. the 2 amp battery is at least 50$. the dual port charger with usb charge ports is not for sale as far as i know, but a single port w/o usb is 50$. so this is at least a 210$ package. so basically your paying for the two batteries which if you bought them not in a kit would not come with the lsa option. instead they would have a three warranty. so your getting the sla option and charger for free with this kit and maybe some money back later.

batteries and charger offer the sla, so just get them registered as soon as you have them and your set for life on two more batteries and is a perfect upgrade for those who bought the 2 amp battery/drill kits. i like the 2amp for lights and smaller jobs that don't the 4 amps or added weight.
the only way to get the lsa on batteries is when bought in a kit, that's why this qualifies.

Well, this is confusing.  I always thought SLA meant for sealed lead acid battery.  What does the SLA stand for in this case???

yep, meant to say lsa. i say sla all the time here and didn't think twice. anyway you know what their warranty is and it's a good deal. if you want a larger battery and a spare small one and a charger. many people are using the small 2 amp or 1.5 amp buying the cheap kits. so this is more for them or those who use a lot of batteries on the job like myself.

(fixed) thanks buz!

Batteries and chargers purchased separate from a tool do not have lifetime warranties, only three years.
Only batteries and chargers that were purchased in a "KIT" with a tool have the LSA.
The Lifetime Service Agreement is available free of charge, on all eligible RIDGIDŽ Brand hand held power tools, stationary power tools and pneumatic tools.

never seen it with two 4amp's in a kit. this is the only kit form i've seen w/o tools.

this is the retail cost right now. so you can wait it out and see if a sale follows or not, but at least others know how to upgrade their batteries if they had only the 2amp's and if you want more for your collection of lsa batteries. the charger is also a one of kind and only sold this way as far as i know.
