Default Ryobi tools batteries

I was a contractor and used Ryobi for many
years, they are a good tool and priced right.
You can buy two Ryobi for the price of one
the others and they for the most part would
last just as long. Now with the batteries,
get the largest amp size battery available!


My thoughts as well...

remember none of these or other contractor
tools are water proof either.


OK!

I've used mine in the rain but working in the
rain is not too smart or ideal and can be
dangerous. Good luck on your project!


Thanks mate

Charging is fast, around 1.5-2h. I guess if
you are a contractor or you are building
a complete new house you'd go for the
biggest version.


Ryobi doesn't seem to have an 18V heat gun tho.
I wonder if that would consume too much energy
for the same battery system or if they just
don't have it. As you say charging is fast and
changing batteries even faster...


The Ryobi heat gun is 2000W or about 112 amps(!) at 18v.
That's why they are offered as 110/230v.

Longer run time is the big advantage, but you might get more power
depending on the tool.

18V lithium ion batteries consist of 5 cells in series, to make the the
18V. Bigger batteries (the 4 and 5 AH ones, probably; I don't know
ryobi's line well) have two sets of five cells in parallel (5s2p is the
common notation). If the design supports it (again, I don't know ryobi),
you can draw twice as much current, which lets you have more powerful
tools. I have milwaukee cordless tools. I have a couple 12V tools (a saw
and a oscillating tool) that are pretty much useless when run from a
single row battery, but are quite usable with the 3s2p ones. Most of my
tools are less noticiably more powerful, though.

At the back side of the 2.5 Ah battery, it says:

Ryobi

18.0V

-----
- - - [the/a symbol indicating DC]

45Wh (2.5Ah)

5ICR19/66 [???]

RB18L25(130429057) [1st - Ryobi 18V Lithium 2.5Ah,
2nd - random product/version number?)

CORDLESS is widespread among Coach n RV people

My truck tires come off with cordless lug turners. and 3 deep charge batts on the rear axle.

I do not question the manufacturer's specs. The deal is finding combo....showing up at Amazon AFTER I bought the best cheap package.

amazing use age no extension after 10 years beginning with a slim Port Cable drill continues to grin.

What does that mean? Do you get more power for

just do the same thing more times
before recharge?


The capacity is shown in Amp Hours so you can do the same thing more
times with the larger battery :-)

But of course the larger battery is heavier so if you are working at
arm's length perhaps you want the smaller one.

Another question, in the manual it says "for
indoor use". What does that mean? The tool
can't take rain? Or cold? Or damp?

I'm planning to lay a tin roof above part of
the area so one can be inside and outside at
the same time. Surely the tools won't break
from use under such a roof?


I don't believe I have ever owned a tool marked "outside" and unless
you plan on working in a cloud burst, which few people do, I can't see
any reason for owning one.
