    Default Just so you know

    Boss' son was looking into wireless cameras and I pointed him the direction of all-star sewer's tablet monitors that hook right up to Ridgid seesnake reels. He pointed out to me that it can use Makita batteries knowing that I just got some Makita cordless tools. I started looking at it a bit closer and saw that it said "uses Ridgid or Makita batteries" just to see I popped 2 of my Makita batteries into my Ridgid cs10 and it fired right up. I think it's kinda funny. You can buy 2 Makita 18v 5 ah batteries and a charger from home Depot at about the same cost of one Ridgid camera battery without the charger at our supply house. Never used batteries with the camera before then but I gotta say it's nice.

    Cool, Do the Makita batteries fit into the Ridgid charger?

    I don't know, I don't have access to one. The Makita charger isn't very much though.

    Yeah the Ridgid battery is crazy money. The Makita batteries will work in the Ridgid charger, same battery.

    I just last night ordered 2 Makita 4.0ah batteries and a charger for a total of $72.00. The lowest price I could find on one Ridgid 2.0ah battery was $125.00

    Correction, the Makita batteries will not work in the Ridgid charger. They each require a same branded charger.

    It won't fit?

    I remember a post long ago about shaving off part of the plastic to make it fit
