Home Depot Tool Refund - Your Opinion

Ridgid tools have a newer 18V battery.

The newer ones say "Hyper" Lithium Ion battery where the old ones did not have this Hyper label.

Is this a new technology or same thing under different labels? Does it really work better? Is it the same "guts" inside?

Home Depot Tool Refund - Your Opinion

Battery technology improves all the time but you could be right and this is just marketing through label changes. All you can do is compare the battery specs.
