Ryobi lithium batteries won't take charge

Ryobi 18V lithium batteries show "test" light [blinking red] when placed in charger. Won't switch to "charge" [green blink]. Had a full charge when they came back to me after borrowed [with their charger] for a hurricane relief job in Louisiana -- volunteers may have tried to charge them in a ni-cad Ryobi charger?? Tried running them down and putting them back in charger -- same result.

    Make sure that the 2 little charging prongs on the top of the charger are pulled out a bit. After a lot of use they become recessed and do not make contact with the battery.

For others with the same problem (flashing red light won't go off)...make sure you FIRMLY PUSH the battery down onto the charger and engage the latches. Simply resting the battery on the charger will not work.

I ran them down a bit then put them in the charger overnight and they kind of fixed themselves -- they finally showed a full charge and are acting normal now.

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.

Hi,
Some of batteries drain very quickly. Depends on how they are used.
Feel free to check Your Local battery Manufacturer for best prices for all different batteries. You name it and they have it or they can custom make a battery for you.

Thanks

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.

I work with cordless tools for a liveing. Its the batterys that are the expensive part ryobi will sell the tools dirt cheap. Iwould contect RYOBI the batterys may have some kind of warranty they don't realy say and they can not be servised. Hears a # 1800 525 2579 this is probably why they gave you so many batterys first place i've never heard of 7 batterys in one combo pack

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.

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.

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.

Ryobi 18V lithium battery won't charge


Hi, Thanks for getting back to me. The yellow and blinking red indicate a defective cell. Since it has lithium cells and is that new any repair to it would be a waste of your time. Ryobi tools purchased in 2008 have a 2 year warranty. I am guessing you probably got it at a home depot and you should return it under the warranty. All new Ryobi tools have a three year warranty. Good Luck! and Thanks for using fixya!
