Rigid tools come through on warranty

I was given a Rigid tool kit for Father's Day.  It had a drill, impact driver, and bizzare saw.  I'm amazed how well these tools worked a the cottage.  That plunge saw was perfect for separating deck planks for replacement.  And that little driver just melts the deck screws in.

But both batteries quickly went tits up.  When I got back from the cottage, I was directed to this Harry Potter-like rental shop that is an official service centre.  Two days and they checked and replaced both batteries.  I was reading that these new Lithium batteries are somewhat troublesome.

Update:  turns out they are getting very picky on the returns of these batteries - must have a lot of failures.
