How would you get this into Canada, or is this for people that live on the border?

This is too many watt hours/cells for Canada Post to ship so I think you will have trouble with anything other than border pickup.

Not for me due to having no amerifriend, but good deal if you can get it. I'd love to have one big 9ah battery
Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers

Ryobi has a 9ah battery for 100$. No good? Or not great because no charger/lifetime warranty?

Good deal but 9AH batts are heavy for cordless.
They can be annoying to have to hold for long periods
6AH are better imo

You are right.

I bought 1 and I'll be using it primarily with a flashlight and the fan. Ill be trying to make a Ridgid to Ryobi adapter since Ryobi offer a 18V inverter to 120V. It provides 1.25A, not much but good enough during a power outage.

Just down the road from HD US, but cannot find any use for this battery. Shame..

Ridgid has way too much electronics packed in the battery which is the last thing you want. Much prefer the dewalt design (dumb battery + smart charger that does the balancing) which is much more reliable.

I'm curious whether Ridgid would honour the LSA, considering it was purchased in the USA.

Of course. It's the same US website and call centre for registering them. You're just giving them a US receipt instead of Canadian, and talking to a CSR in the US.

There is no separate Canadian LSA registration facility/service.

Even if you already have a Ridgid charger, keep in mind that LSA is not available for batteries sold on their own - it must be part of a kit. A charger plus battery qualifies as a kit.

But 9ah seems like overkill for most applications - too big and heavy, too expensive.

I called Ridgid in 2015 when I bought my impact wrench kit and they confirmed that Mexico, US and Canada is fine and considered the same.

Good to know. These things often have loopholes, and I wasn't aware of how they would deal with the LSA on a tool not purchased in Canada.
Back in the '90's, the big camera companies (Canon, Nikon, etc) would not honor US warranties here, and I know many mobile phone companies still follow this practice.
