We want to pass on our savings to our customers, so we've lowered the price of this item. However, since our price is now below the manufacturer's suggested retail price, we are restricted by the manufacturer from showing the price right away.
The standard batteries that came with my Ridgid drill and impact driver were poor performing, substandard beyond description. The three batteries, none with more than modest use, are all dead -- won't even take a charge. Outrageous! Truth is, if I didn't have the tools which are otherwise useless I wouldn't have purchased these replacement batteries.
Everything appears to be great, but with batteries it take time to know if it will still work properly 9 to 12 months down the road. Since Rigid no longer sells this battery it is a good option to be able to purchase reconditioned batteries and extend the life of your cordless tool. It also helps slow down the quantity of items that end up in our landfills.
This company is fantastic. I have purchased several reconditioned items and have not had a problem. The products are just like new only you pay a lot less! Do not hesitate to purchase from Reconditioned Tools.
