Ridgid has announced two new 18V cordless power tool battery chargers – a 6-port sequential charger and a dual-port simultaneous charger. While there’s nothing especially significant about either release, they’re welcome additions to Ridgid’s 18V lineup.
As with Ridgid’s other 18V tools and accessories, both chargers will be exclusively available at Home Depot.
Ridgid 18V 6-Port Sequential Charger (AC86096)
Ridgid has a new 18V 6-port sequential charger, meaning it will charge up to 6 connected batteries one at a time.
Ridgid says that their new 6-port charger can charge an 18V 2.0Ah Li-ion battery in just 30 minutes, which is 2X faster than their R86093 charger.
The charger features a carrying handle, LED indicators, and a pass-through AC plug.
A battery port selector button allows users to choose which battery is actively charging.
There’s also an energy-saver mode, which lowers power consumption, maintains battery charge, and maximize battery life.
ETA: April 2022
Ridgid 18V Dual-Port Simultaneous Charger (AC86095)
Ridgid has also come out with a new 18V dual-port simultaneous charger. As with the dual-port charger, it can recharge a 2.0Ah battery – or two of them – in 30 minutes.
The charger has a pass-through AC plug, and also keyhole slots on the back for wall-mounting.
ETA: April 2022
Existing Ridgid 18V Dual-Port Charger
Ridgid has an existing 18V dual-port charger in their lineup, model AC840094, which launched in late 2016. This is a sequential charger, meaning it can only charge batteries one at a time.
The dual-port sequential charger features (2) pass-through 2-pront outlets, as well as (2) USB charging ports.
