I know you know, but did you take them up to scan?

My home store still has the ridgid 12V packs marked at $49 even though they scan at 35. I think the price change guy missed them when he was changing prices. They are located in a strange place. I am hoping nobody buys them and they go down again to $17.52.

That’s $3.18 a cell Also they had some Husky combination wrench sets Sae and Metric $10 Great for the work truck or to lend instead of my snap on stuff

Well, you just confirmed what I suspected, these are full of the 20R’s

I put these same packs back yesterday because they were $50—Today at a different store they were on the sale shelf not marked—So for $35 for 2 packs I said what the hoot—couldn’t comprehend how they were 4ah—my mind would only see 3 cells across the bottom—never seen cells in the neck of the pack before—anyway 12 cells for $38 and on my Opus they are testing at 2100-2130mah so far on 4 cells

FYI, here is a pic of the single pack that contains 3 Samsung 13Q’s on the right for 1.3Ah. On the left is an older double pack that contains 6 Samsumg 15M for 3Ah. The single packs can be nice in that they weigh next to nothing at all. But of course they lack any kind of capacity.

Yes I scanned them. I’m going to stop and check them on my way home today to see if they have dropped here yet.

Checked in my local Home Depot for the 2 pack of 4Ah Ryobi batteries and they are gone.  Salesman says they sold out at the $75 discount.

The Ryobis have the Samsung 20Q, not the 20R. The R is considered a little better.

Checked New Hartford, NY and no Rigid twin packs in sight.
Might try during the week, one guy that works is real sharp and will have all the info.
He was a Sears tool man his whole life and always pointed out what you should buy and what not to buy.

Thanks, dchomak. Given that they are Qs and not Rs, would you still consider that a good deal? Is it still worth $50?

If you had the choice between getting the 12 20Rs from Ridgid or 20 20Qs from Ryobi (both $50 at my HD, what would you do?

According to the reviews by HKJ, the R’s are slightly better. But maybe that lies within the margin of error for just a few samples? Both will output 20A at full capacity. In a drill pack I don’t think it matters. In something like a flashlight, a little better becomes a “must have”

So I went to my local HD today to check if the Ryobi packs had dropped. They had and all 3 that were there the other day were in a cart on their way to checkout before I could get my hands on them. One guy bought all 3 sets.

So off I went to hit up some of the other stores. I found one pack sitting on a shelf unlabeled at another store and snatched it up for my father.

I then found some of the Ridgid 2 packs and picked up one pack to tear down for the high current cells.

I took apart my single stack and got 5 of these…

Any idea what brand? I wondered if they were LG’s.

Also, can someone give me a short and sweet verrsion of how to get these deals at the self scan? I’ve read a lot at the front of this thread, but didn’t really see an explanation.
Thanks! Smile

These deals for the drill packs are on, it is just that maybe every store has not updated their prices yet. elsewhere in this thread there are other deal types going on that require skill and a lot of luck.

are you going to upload a picture?

Here’s how:

the 12 R’s should be $35 by now, I wouldn’t pay 50. Keep an eye on them.

Wonder if those are 26500's in there.  Could be handy cells if they are.

Yeah those are sub-C NiCad’s. The good thing about the 18V Ryobi tools is that the tools are compatible with the new Li-Ion packs.

It does appear that way, except for the "One+" label.

EDIT: Nevermind.  One+ platform covers both Ni-Cad and Lithium.

Sorry guys…to first 2 pics were the older Ryobi pack. Wasn’t 18650s so I out it back together and put it in the drill, removing the Li-ion18v. The rest of the pics are the lithium battery. Smile

I finished testing one of the 12v packs from Riggid—It’s kind of what I expected—they seem to match mah and resistance per 12v bank—
One bank 2038/2080/2088mah the other bank 2007/2099/2099 and the resistance ranges from 38-44 with the total of each bank being fairly close—Not sure how accurate the Opus 3400 resistance test is—it gives different readings if it’s cold/if the battery is hot/if you hold your hand from the left instead of the right—but overall better batteries do show less resistance—these 20R are right there with VTC5 I have
