DIY AC battery adapter for Ridgid


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm trying to DIY an AC Ridgid power adapter using a 24V 16A output lighting power supply with a Ridgid battery shell I have from a dead battery.  I'd just connect the 24V power supply outputs to the Ridgid 18V battery connectors.


Would this work?  Using 24V to drive 18V Ridgid power tools/shop vacs would be ok won't burn the tool?


This would be real handy when I need to run a power tool/cordless shop vac when my Ridgid battery is out.
