The batteries are getting weak,I bet if you buy a new battery and fully charge it your drills will run like your used to.

While nicads dont last as long as the newer lithium, they are much cheaper since tehy ve been in production longer. A good source is Ebay. One item to bear in mind is to check your current battery specs for the amh level...its not just the volts you want to match up but also the amp hrs...hope this helps

Your batteries are probably weak and need replacing. I would consider the new Ryobi Lithium batteries as a replacement.
The lithium batteries have no memory and do not lose a charge like the NiCad style batteries. The Lithium batteries will work in your older model Ryobi drills. You would however need a new charger for lithium batteries.I have provided a link to show you the different models. http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?storeId=10051&keyword=Ryobi+lithium+batteries&jspStoreDir=hdus&langId=-1&catalogId=10053

Just a thought, lithium batteries wont charge in Ryobi's old chargers. I upgraded my batteries but not the charger until I found this out.

Battery will not hold a charge


If the battery is one year old, it is shot. I have about 20 batteries under the bench and about 5 cordless drills , saws, lights, you name it , I won't buy anymore. I have a bunch of them, the batteries don't last. It is cheaper to buy a new kit with new batteries than to replace the batteries. No more.

My 14v ryobi charger is givig two lights when I am charging my battries. whats wrong ?


red is charging, green is done, amber is either hot or bad battery ive seen that with both symptoms when on with the green. dont run your battery down to the limit and always keep the battery charged this will prolong the life of the battery, dont store dead batteries in other words.

How to fix an old RYOBI 18 volt battery won't


take a hammer, and apply force. These batteries dont last forever... but i am serious about the hammer... you may be able to free up whats inside (if you know how a batterey works.)... also apply heat.. try to hit it from all angles than slam it down on the back and leave it sit... than try. I hope this works for you my dewalt batteries over the years have don this, and it works.. but BTW. it wont hold a charge for very long anymore.. the battery is pretty much garbage.

Very little juice in freshly charged batteries


have you tried the batterys in any other tool?

you would also need to check the voltage of the batterys they should be at least 18 volts (19 prefered)

then if the batterys do not show charged you would need to make sure the battery charger is putting out voltage.

After that contact your closest Ryobi service center we would check that for free to let you know what you need, I am sure you local place would do the same.

Can a bad ryobi 18 drill ruin a new 18volt ryobi battery


If the drill has a short in it, then yes, it could short the battery out. Probably in the trigger switch.
