    thanks for the info. i also found something out today about the batteries. first let me say i went down and bought new batteries. cheaper if you buy two instead of one. the other thing is if you let the battery run completely out of juice before you put it on the charger it will last longer. good-luck. ray

Just was on a website for Ryobi drills and it states that if the yellow and green light stay on for more than 15 minutes the battery is fried. Couldn't find the link but if you do a search for Ryobi Drill 18 volt you should find the same info. It was as product review from Australia I think.

I also have a problem with the charging of Ryobi batterys. They seem to charge AOK with the green light coming on but the charge does not last at all. Not sure if the problem is with the batteries on the charger.

    Thanks Ray think I am going to purchase a couple of Lithium batteries and the duel chemical charger as it appears the Ni Cad charger won't charge the Lithium batteries but the new one will charge both. I have 3 batteries one of which seems to be AOK. Going to try the freeze and thaw method a couple of times first as the Lithium solution is quite expensive.

Just bought a Ruobi drill with 18V Lithium Batteries. Been chatging for over an hour. Still not charged. Just the bottom Green light stays on. Is this normal? How long does it take?


The Ryobi charger will flash green as it charges and then remain steady or slowly flashing green when fully charged. Flashing red means testing and if it remains steady or slowly flashing red it is defective.

This is not right. They should last much longer then that. I have one of the more expensive 18V lithium batteries (the one with the button on it that tells you if it needs charging or not) and I can use mine almost all day before it needs to be recharged. I do construction work and I use my Ryobi products almost all day. Either both batteries are bad (I don't believe that is the case) or the charger is not charging them all the way to a full charge. With this charger, you do need to make sure that you remove the batteries as soon as the green light comes on. It is not good on these batteries to stay charging after they are fully charged. You also should not leave the charger plugged in without any batteries charging.Please tell me more about the charger. When you plug in the charger, does the red light come on? When you plug in a battery, does the red light stay bright and the green light blink? Does the red light go off and the green light stay on bright when you remove it from the charger?
If the charger is not working correctly, then return it for a new one.

Both green and yellow light stay on and batteries will not charge 18v


If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.

The Yellow and Green light both come on and stay on when I put in a battery to charge !!! This is a Ryobi 18v battery charger model #1423701.....

It sounds like your battery is bad. If yellow and green are on for more than 15 minutes it probably a defective battery pack. See page 8 in the manual.

Yellow / green light will not go off when charging


Its likely the batteries will take at least several hours to fully charge, if not more. NiCad batteries are slow charging and usually need 4-6 hours for a full charge. Keep them on longer or even overnight but make sure you remove them in the morning. You will probably find the light turns green after 4-6 hours of charging. If lights stay yellow and green after 12 hours of charging, it may indicate a fault in the battery itself where it will not accept a charge.

Solution is two fold. Will try the freeze and re charge approach today and do this a few times. The long term soluiton is to purchase two Lithium batteries and a duel chemical charger. Expensive solution but seems it will work.
