Question about Hand Tools
My semi-new 18 volt ryobi batteries will no longer ''hold'' a charge. how can I recondition or ''bump'' them so that they will work again. most of my hand and power tools use this battery. thank you for you help, (in advance)
Ryobi batteries are specific to each Ryobi model, so please write down which model number or the original battery part number you have. How old are the batteries?
I had the same problem with many bateries I had at home, like cell-phone batteries and also some power tool bateries. Did not have any Ryobi power tools tho, so don't hold me acountable if this doesn't apply to your hardware:)
Many batteries have the "memory effect" which means that if the battery was not completely empty when it was set to recharge it might now only recharge to the level it was emptied to, so for instance if you used the power tool for 10 mins and the battery emptied to, lets say, 90% capacity, it might occure that the next time you recharge the battery it will only charge to it's 90% maximum...doing that many times lowers the maximum recharge capacity. As I heard the new Li-Ion batteries do not have this problem.
I hope this makes some sence as my english is not that good and it was a bit hard explaining my thoughts:)

I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW THE BATTERY IS NO GOOD, THIS ASSUMES YOU HAVE TESTED THE CHARGER VOLTAGE AND IT IS WITHIN SPECS.
