Edit: 8/30/2023 New Info

Ridgid 18V Professional High Temp Glue Gun R860433B

We now received the official press release info from Ridgid regarding their new 18V glue gun. While we already knew it was a high temp heat gun that goes up to 400F, we learn that it has 3 heat settings. They are as follows (low – 280°/ medium – 340° / high – 400°).

There is a mode selector button on the bottom rear to select your heat settings. High temp is goof for heavy-duty construction glue, low is good for heat sensitive materials, and medium is for general and automotive glue sticks.

We knew that it had a stroke adjustment knob and now we get to see it up close in the image above. This is to help you adjust the amount of glue to dispense per squeeze of trigger. You can dial it up or down for precise dispensing.

There’s also an LED light to help in low light situations. An LED indicator light lets you know of the guns status. It will blink as it heats up and turns solid when the desired temp has been reached. Optimal temp can be reached in just 90 seconds.

It also comes with three interchangeable nozzles – a standard nozzle, spreader nozzle, and precision nozzle, as well as a nozzle wrench to provide easy switching between the three nozzles.

It is available now and is priced at $79 as a baretool.

Ridgid 18V 12.0Ah MAX Output EXP™ Lithium-Ion Battery R840120


Ridgid launches a new battery with very high capacity of 12ah. Ah stands for amp hours which is a measurement of capacity, not power output. This means it has 6 times the capacity of a 2ah battery. 4x the capacity of a 3ah or 3x the capacity of a 4ah and double the capacity of a 6ah and so forth. In some cases larger capacity batteries have been shown to offer better performance on certain tools. This can vary from slight to noticeable but all depends on the tool and application.

Many times a difference in performance isn’t noticeable. Though Ridgid claims this has 3x more power, although they don’t mention compared to what? So take it with a grain of salt as this is marketing and most if not all manufacturers nowadays claim their newest batteries have more power. Whether the difference is noticeable is a different story. This is a Max output labelled battery and supposedly their latest tools perform best with these.

No specific release date or price has been confirmed at the time of writing. Ridgid says it will be available in 2023.

  • 3X more power
  • Runs cooler & lasts longer
  • Advanced intelligent electronics for optimized performance

Ridgid 18V 6A Rapid Charger R86098

Ridgid 18V 6A Rapid Charger R86098

Last of the bunch is a new 18V 6A rapid charger. Ridgid claims it’s 3x faster charging although they don’t mention compared to what? It is rated to charge a max output 6ah battery in about an hour which is quick. It has an integrated pass-through plug to conserve outlet space for other appliances.

No specific release date or price has been confirmed at the time of writing. Ridgid says it will be available in 2023.

  • 3X faster charging
  • Charges an 18V 6.0Ah MAX Output Battery in 1 hour
  • Integrated pass-through plug optimizes outlet space
