[Home Depot] $74 RIDGID 18V 4.0Ah Lithium-Ion Battery (2-Pack) (Yorkdale location)

It seems that the regular price is $139 and some stores put it on sale from $74 to $118. Yorkdale location shows the lowest.

I know nothing about drills, are these battery packs universal? Have a dewalt drill but batteries are pretty dead. Lasts for a minute or two then runs out of juice. Can I put these in or will it not be compatible?

You need to buy DeWalt batteries, batteries are definitely not universal. If you buy these you need to buy an adaptor but I can’t recall if you should adapt Ridgid to DeWalt or not.

Is 4.0ah considered the best middle ground in terms of batteries for power tools (sawzall/circular saw/sander)? Or should I skip this and look for a 7.0+ ah?

Depends on what tools you are using, how often and for how long you are using each tool, but IMO, 4 or 5 ah is the sweet spot for weight, price, and battery life.

Looks like price went back to $139. Hopefully they don't cancel existing orders.

Why is that? I was going to buy the single 4.0ah battery but if its not eligible for LSA then I will have to reconsider.

Batteries only qualify for LSA when they come bundled with a tool or charger. Battery only purchases have a 3 year warranty.

I considered the LSA thing, but at the end of the day, $40/battery with 3 year warranty is hard to beat. The bundled batteries rarely ever go on clearance and certainly not this cheap. I'll eventually pick up some bundled ones through promos with a free tool, but that's more for the free tool than anything else.

I guess it makes sense if you want to spend more money and have tools you don't need?

Which combo tools? Most of the lower priced combos come with 2.0ah (or some come with 1.5ah). Then you have to go through the hassle of selling the tools to make up the price difference and there have been reports, and the LSA lists, that you may be asked to include the tool + the battery + the charger from the combo for the LSA claim. If you don't have any of the tools to send along, you can get refused.
