I have 2 18v Hitachi EBM1830 batteries that came with a 8 tool combo kit. Tried using my hammer drill, 1 battery works fine, the other says fully charged on the charger and when I use it with the drill, it runs about a minute before the drill quits. I can immediately place it back on the charger and it shows fully charged. Both batteries read 20.4v with a voltmeter. Bad battery?
This was the conversation I had with Ryobi when I was informing them about why I was frustrated with my batteries that won't work anymore. Guess I'll be looking at Ridgid from now on. Comments 2014-04-21T23:59:23-04:00 I would like to say that I am extremely disappointed in the One plus Li-Ion batteries that I have. I was given them as a gift since I owned a set of Ryobi One plus tools. In less than a year and a half 2 batteries are dead. My charger blinks red then green pretending to charge them then stays lit on green. When I grab the batteries (either one) none of them work. I have always been impressed with Ryobi and had been a faithful customer up until this point. I work around a lot of tools and not having a battery that works is the most frustrating thing to happen. 2014-04-22T00:01:16-04:00 I must add, that I hope someone from your R&D group should look online and see how many people have turned away from Ryobi due to the battery issues. 2014-04-22T09:01:54-04:00GERRY There are no issues with the batteries. If maintained properly they will not have any trouble. store between 50-100 degrees charge the batteries every 4-6 weeks to maintain the cell life remove from the charger once they are fully charged. let the battery cool after each use before you charge.

I know how to use my tools as well as the accessories that go with them. As I mentioned, I cannot believe that Ryobi has not addressed the discontent that a lot of people have who own your tools. Your response is very condascending and I would guess that people will feel the same when they read about it after I post it. Thank you for the tips I, just like most every Ryobi owner already knows.
Scott B posted a topic in Outdoor Power EquipmentI just received the CORE "PowerLok" 14" string trimmer I bought off Woot.com on Saturday evening. The trimmer arrived early this morning. Very surprised at the shipping speed! The battery was pretty much fully drained so its on the 3 hr charger now. I just got to spin it a few times before it quit. Its super quiet. I didn't get a chance to access power or performance but I did remove the bump head to take a look at the mechanism. I'm interested to see if its possible to attach an aftermarket brushcutter head or blade. It does appear that it would support screw on type bump head replacements, but it does not have a raised ring guide in order to hold a bare brushcutter blade.
