Question about Drills

1 Answer

I have a Ryobi lithium ion battery that will not function. The chargers shows a defective battery but when I press the "fuel gauge indicator" button it lights up green. I checked the voltage on the battery and it momentarily reads 19.## volts then reads nothing. I checked the individual cells and they all read 4.2 v Any suggestions? Bad circuit board?

SOURCE: Is it possible to repair a defective lithium ion

Maybe there is something wrong with the charger itself. If you have a friend that has the same drill try to charge the battery on his charger.

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

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.

Who rebuilds ryobi 18 volt li ion batteries


Rebuilding the Lithium batteries is a waste of time and money. For starters the cells cost a minimum of $5 ea and a low power pack takes 5, so now you are in for $25 without doing any work. You can pick up packs on eBay for around $30 - $40 if you shop around. If you know what you are doing, you can strip cells from bad packs and test them to find good ones and then rebuild with those. It can be tricky and you may get mixed results.

What Ryobi batteries p103 or p104 will a battery charger that came with my p100 batteries charge? Or will the charger work with these batteries?


If you have a P100 NiCad battery, the charger for that will not charge the new Lithium Ion P103 or P104 batteries. You need a specialised Ryobi Lithium Ion battery charger like this one

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.

You need to have the charger tested, if you know that batteries are good then what else could it be. This LIon charger has a logic circuit in it like a computer.

Does it harm a Ryobi 18v lithium battery to leave on Charger?


Lithium-Ion batteries require careful charging and temperature monitoring while in the charger. Ryobi's Charging station monitors many functions and shuts off when the battery has gone through a complete charge. This is indicated by a steady Green light. Once the Charge indicator is a steady green the charger stops charging. With any battery It will slowly discharge and I don’t think the Ryobi will maintain a battery that is never removed. For example, if after a complete charge cycle if the battery was left there for 2 years and then you went to use it, it would likely be completely discharged. However if the battery charger is unplugged then plugged back in a new charge sequence would start. I lose power at my house about every 6 months or so. Once power is restored a new cycle would start and the charging cycle begins again.
Hope this helps and have a great day.

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!

Battery charges but is dead


The battery isn't any good. The charger is just going through it's regular steps. (I know how it is. I just bought two Ryobi 18 volt batteries for my Ryobi cordless drill, reciprocating saw, flashlight,
trim circular saw, combo set. $60 for two batteries)
