You don't need help, you need patience. That charger is on a timer. You can probably use it now anyway. If this is helpful, please post as such. TY

Ryobi batteries P103 (2) or P104


The physical differences between two models of Ryobi batteries is:
- The P103 (Part Number 130429008) is a 1.5 Amp/Hour (a measure of how long a battery lasts on a charge) battery. If totally discharged it takes about 15-20 minutes to charge back to full. It is lighter than the P104 because it has half the cells inside. Lighter, quicker to recharge, quicker to discharge, shorter lifespan.
- The P104 (Part Number 130429017) is a 3.0 Amp/Hour battery. It takes about 30-35 minutes to charge it to full if fully discharged. Slightly heavier, longer time to discharge & recharge, longer lifespan.
Considerations:
- No difference between batteries in the performance of your tools.
- The number of times you discharge and recharge a battery determines a batteries lifespan. That's why most manuals will tell you to fully discharge a battery before putting it on a charger.
- If you only have one battery you cannot use your tools while it is recharging. On big projects you have to have two batteries.
- The weight difference between batteries is negligable unless you are working with the tool in your hand for extended periods.

Red light in charger flash when battery is put in to charging


This behavior is typical of trying to charge a battery that is wither too hot (let it rest for a hour) or one that has done its job and is ready for the battery retirement home. Replace your battery for best results with your Ryobi battery powered tool.

I would not say they are not defected, but I think they are not getting fully charged. I have the same problem with my battery once I have used it all day and the red light comes on from the fuel gauge. I have the P104 battery. I would return your charger and try to charge them on the new one first. If you have the same trouble, then return the batteries for new ones.

Battery will "fully" charge and then only run for 20 - 30 minutes of use then be discharged. Have fully discharged and re-charged to no avail. My other battery will run for 2-3 hours of use.


Hi Fred,

I have several 18v tool sets and for the most part I'm quite satisfied with their performance. I currently use Bosch and Ryobi.

When used with the drill, a battery can last me the whole day. On the other hand, the sawzall will eat them up pretty quick.

The thing I've found common to all brands is that it is absolutely crucial to make sure the batteries are fully charged before they get used for the first time. That first full charge seems to set the bar for subsequent charges for the rest of the batteries life.

I too, have tried the discharge/recharge thing. No help. I can only suggest a new battery and letting get all it can take from the charger the first time out of the box.

Since I've been doing that, I rarely even think to bring my charger to job sites, there's that much of a difference in performance.

Hope this helps you out.

Best regards,
Mike

Take it back to the store and tell them it is no good, and get a new pair of batteries, take the charger too. I had the same thing, brand new batteries, gone in weeks, they replaced them, no problem.
