Topic tags/keywords: tip lithium ryobi

I recently purchased a Ryobi dual power grass trimmer- 18V and corded. Works great- better if it was in someone else’s hands. :D Down to business- I saw on the Home Depot website that they had Lithium batteries in a two pack for 99.00 while supplies last. About half the regular price of one. It was pointed out in another thread that the One Plus batteries can be used for a myriad of Ryobi tools. I got the pack of drill, light, sander and saw a few years ago for Christmas. Since three of my NiCd batteries are gone, I decided to take the plunge and purchase the two pack. These batteries also have the power gauge- press the green button and it tells how much charge is left. I figured it would be cheaper to get the two Li batteries than to rebuild three of the old batteries. Also, the charger that came with the trimmer will charge all similar types of Ryobi batteries. Thought I would put this on the forum FYI. Good woodworking to all!

Between the neighbor and I we own most of the 18V Ryobi tools. I have 6 batteries That i keep charged and he has 4. I have had a great experience using the Ryobi tools. I especially like the new Brad Nailer and the paint spray gun. He has the heavy duty impact gun and the 4” grinder that are pretty impressive. We use the tree trimmer all the time along with the hedge trimmer. With all the extra batteries we keep going when others give out. I just bought the 18V chain saw and though it lacks lots power it is light and handy to use for trimming small limbs and branches. Besides it starts without pulling on a cord.

Edit: I forgot to add that I recently bought the drill driver with 2 batteries for $99. I gave my old one to the neighbor and kept the new one ( he was always borrowing mine). It was like getting the drill drive for free!
