Yes you can. On tools, 18 volts is 18 volts. Tools don't 'know' how the power is being created, either by Ni-Cad or Li-Ion means. Chargers are totally different. Most Li-Ion chargers can charge older Ni-Cad and some Ni-MH batteries but older Ni-Cad chargers will charge Li-Ion battery untill they overheat and sometimes start on fire because older chargers can't detect when the Li-Ion batteries are full.

My 3 year old battery P104 will run my drill about 10 secs and then quit. I restart the drill and the same thing, another 10 secs and stop. I checked the voltage on the battery and it is fully charged. ...


Your batteries are tired and don't put out enough amps to power your drill. They may show 18V in them on a tester and show fully charged on the charger but one or more of the cells inside are just worn out. If you got three years out of them you did extremely well. The only fix is to replace the batteries.

I bought 2 P103 lithium batteries and they will not take a charge from my one + (p110) charger. I was informed that these components are all interchangeable. Will the P103s work with the blue 18v ryobi...


That is true the One+ 18V Li-Ion battery packs will work in any One+ 18V Ryobi tool. However the Lithium ion batteries will not charge in the original P110 NiCd charger. You will need one of the the new series Ryobi One+ 18V "dual chemistry" chargers for that. The will charge both types of battery packs.

Can you charge ryobi lithium batteries in a regular ryobi charger?


NO! Never charge lithium batteries in a charger designed for nickle based batteries like the NiHi your old charger was meant for. Ryobi did design the new Lithium charger to be backwards compatible so you can charge your older 18V NiHi batteries in the Lithium 18V charger.
Also note, NEVER miss-match the voltage, for example, make sure you are not trying to charge 12V batteries in an 18V charger unless the manufacturer has specifically stated that the charger is capable of multiple voltages.

We are only managing to drill 4 x 6mm holes in paveing slabs, drill is 18v and only 1month old.


Ryobi is one of the cheapest drills. They are good for small projects. You need to upgrade to a better drill like milwalkie or Dewalt. Seems if you are drilling in concrete you need a corded hammerdrill. This will get the job done.

New Ryobi 18v lithium battery goes dead after a couple of seconds. Is there any solution other than returning it?


No, just return it, for the money they should give you one that works. It is common to get a defective Ryobi 18v lithium battery. I've had 2 out of 7 purchased that wouldn't hold a charge. But when you get a good one they work awesome!
