I do not know, but I have looked at generic battery versions as copies of those two and they seem one and the same in most respects.
So my thought is do they charge up? do they power anything else OK?
Then I would look at the contact areas to see if there is a difference like one has a longer contact or some bit of plastic is on one or not the other.
Many types I have found start out as specific, then over the years manufacturers sell out of older model types then decide to unify whats left to cover a slew of older models.
If charging is the issue then it is a real problem as these modern batteries require exact charging and if its controller finds a battery is below a safe charge up level point they become a brick.
Do not try to "fix" them as methods used on "tolerant" Nicad types to get them to work, is not safe on them they have a BAD reaction to overcharge situations.
If they are not that old maybe you can do a swap deal with Ryobi?

Hope this helps..........

Ryobi troubleshooting


The motor may have overheated and burned open. Use a multimeter to check resistance across the battery contacts in the tool with the switch closed. If it reads open, the motor has failed.

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.

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

The battery will power your equipment for 30 to 45 minutes, that is normal. What you're thinking of is the lifespan of a lithium battery. It with your battery will last 10 times longer than a regular NiCad battery. So you will be able to charge the battery and use it Hundreds of times before the Battery Life is depleted. Sounds like it's working as designed

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.
