The following are some questions and answers about Ridgid Battery Compatibility:
Q: What is the difference between 2.0Ah and 4.2
A: The main differences are the capacity and voltage rating. The 2.0Ah is rated at 5 volts while the 4.2Ah is rated at 6 volts, however both have the same capacity of 4000 mAh and 6000 mAh respectively. Both have a nominal voltage of 12 volts but they will work with any type of power source from 10 to 16 volts depending on their respective capacities.
Q: Is it safe to use two different types of batteries together?
A: They can be combined safely if they are of the same type and capacity.
Q: Can I use them with my current charger?
A: Yes, they are compatible with many of the most popular brand name chargers.
Q: What is the shelf life of the battery?
A: The shelf life of a new battery is about 3 to 5 years before it is considered dead.
