Hey! I'm new here but I was just reading about a comparison between a ridgid and a dewalt and it reminded me of how disappointingly short the battery life is on the Ridgid. I bought it reconditioned, and promptly bought a brand new battery, hoping it would last an hour or two of driving 2inch exterior screws for a fence I was building. It maybe lasted 20 minutes, maybe 30, and i had to switch over to my 1/2 inch cordless drill. What's the deal???Does anyone else have similar experiences with the Ridgid or should I break down and buy a brand new one? Or, god forbid, switch brands?
