SOURCE: Dewalt cordless drill

You have burned out the drill motor, it is shorted, the battery smoked due to a direct short, one thing I don't understand why the thermal limiter didn't trip in battery pack, I would contact manufacturer and try to get hem to buy you a new drill.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: drill stops unexpectedly

I have had 2 of the same drills with the exact same problem. The first one worked for about 10 minutes the first time I used it before it started cutting out. I took it back to Lowes and got bought a new one. The new drill does exactly the same thing. If I charge the battery it will work for a few minutes and then starts working only intermittently. I stuck in the second battery and get the same thing. I was just using it to take some screws out so I wasn't even puting a load on it and only got maybe 10 minutes before it started cutting out.
I would highly recommend staying away from the Hitachi Lithium drills. I will certainly never buy another one.

Ryobi p201 drill doesn't work (doesn't power on). Battery works with my other devices that came with it (flashlight, vacuum, saw). Any suggestions?

Your drill needs to be dismantled and the problem discovered.
Know that these modern tools are not always repairable, but you can at least try.
One reason for the last sentence is parts are not readily
available, particularly if they are made in China.
God bless your efforts.

I checked a couple sites and would suggest calling RYOBI parts supplier at 1-877-545-4099 to ensure that you get the correct charger. They might ask you what the model nnumber and the voltage and type of battery so have these numbers handy. Let me know if you need more assistance.

ryobi is the most inexpensive cordless brand, and they assume you will throw it out after it stops working so there is no repair support. sorry.

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)
