This is my second Ridgid combo set, the first one is still in use at work and this set I use at home. The tools are very well built and have great battery life. The LED lights in the tools are a great feature. The drill is very powerful and I love the hammer drill feature. The impact driver is a lifesaver and it is very well balanced. The saws get the job done and the light is a light. I did have an issue with the impact driver shortly after I bought the set, I took it back to Home Depot, they sent it off, and I had it back good as new in 2 weeks. You cannot beat the lifetime service agreement that Ridgid offers. This set is more expensive than some but you get what you pay for.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Is there a "portable" ie, 12v cigarette type charger available for Ridgid batteries?

The only thing you will probably be able to do is use a power inverter and plug in your original battery charger.

Is it normal for the tools to "trip out?"

When using a self feeding 3/4" bit, the drill suddenly stops and has to be restarted. Same thing happens with the circular saw when cutting 2x4s and 3/4" plywood. Also had the reciprocating saw do the same thing when cutting 3/4" plywood.
I have never had this problem exactly as you are describing. I have noticed when I am drilling something if the battery gets low it just suddenly stops. The lithium ion batteries don't show signs of being weak they just shut down. This is all I can think of in your case.
