Cordless Grass Trimmer - Battery Warranty?

I thought I read on here previously that Ryobi had a lifetime battery guarantee, but I wasn't able to locate this tonight.

In short, I'm interested in purchasing a battery-operated grass trimmer, but am concerned about the battery dying in a few years.

Are there any grass trimmer manufacturers that provide a lifetime guarantee on the battery?

Ryobi batteries have a 3 year warranty.

Thanks, that's what I found too on their Canadian web site.

For some reason, I thought someone here on RFD mentioned Ryobi batteries (or some other brand, as I may be mistaken) has a lifetime warranty on their batteries. Maybe I've got this mixed up?

I'd be shocked to find any company offering a lifetime guarantee on their batteries these days.

I remember some brands (Ridgid perhaps?) have some cordless batteries have a lifetime warranty, but not in consumer level stuff.

Rigid is the lifetime battery company. not ryobi.

But the ryobi ones are great. i've had mine for years and never been dissapointed.

Ah, that must be it. Got the two "R" brands confused.
Ridgid doesn't appear to make any grass trimmers.

It's rigid, but to activate the warranty you need to register with them within 30 days of purchase or something similar, if not done, there's no lifetime warranty.
