Question about Drills

1 Answer

Charging question Hi I bought a Ryobi 4 v lithium-ion screwdriver. When I bought it the salesman said I could just leave it on the charger. After reading the manual it says to plug in the charger and a red light will come on. Both on the charger and the driver. When it is charged the red lights will go off. The book says to remove the screw driver from the charger. Does this mean that I can't leave it on the charger all the time? Rod

Because it is Lithium Ion it is supposed to hold its charge for years.

So once it is charged what is the point of using electricity to keep it standing with a full charge in its cradle ?? (Does not compute)

My Bosch screwdriver sits on a shelf for months and has never failed to start when required.

If you are doing a lot of work then have the cradle handy and pop the drill on after a few operations and for 10 minutes before you put it away.

Once the full indicator comes on put it to bed ready for the next time it is needed

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.

My 18 volt Ryobi battery shows charged in charger (Green Light) But will not work in any of the power tools. I have three other Batteries that do work. Bought at Home depot on july 24 2011 Ryobi Two 18V...


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

Is the green light supposed to flash while charging lithium batteries> just got the p113 charger but no instructions in the dang box


I have used alot of battery type drills and other action tools . Ryobi is on the lower end of the market as opposed to Milwaulkee and Dewalt . But my experience with battery operated tool charging equipment is that if the light is green and it's blinking , I would say it's charging . When the light goes off or stays on . I would say it's charged . Leaving the battery or batteries in the charging unit for 24 hours will not hurt the battery . My solution here is put it in the charger , and check it 12 hours later !

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 a 18v lithium battery in a nicd charger?


Do not try this since the charging circuit for lithium batteries are different than nicad! Improper charging of lithum batteries can cause a fire.

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.

Can I leave my Ryobi P113 charger with a P103 battery inserted in it for an indefinite amount of time with the charger plugged in, without doing damage to the battery or charger? Thank you. Phil


Yes you can that is an automatic charger when it is fully charged it shuts down the charging portion but keeps the charged light lit however this does not effect the battery.
