Ryobi blower flashing green red when charging
I have run RYOBI printing presses for the last 30 years and I bought a RYOBI rechargeable drill and rechargeable garden tool. I am disgusted by how cheap they were and how the batteries just gave up. I have heard about bumping a battery by running a good battery thru it. It was suppose recondition the battery, however I got two ruined battery for that.

Problem charging Ryobi 18v battery
You must connect the battery with the charger separately in the main plug, when it flashes a red light, it's then busy charging and when it goes green after three to five hours of charging, then it's ready to be used. hope that will help.

Why is the green light blinking on the Ryobi charger with the battery in it
My Ryobi 18V One+ charger blinks green while it's charging. When the battery is fully charged, the LED goes to a solid green. However, one battery recently had a faulty cell. After several hours on the charger, the green and red LEDs both were blinking. That indicated that the battery failed late in the charging sequence. It didn't fail the initial testing by the charger. The other battery I charged that day charged fine.
The extended capacity batteries can take 12 hours to charge in my experience. The regular batteries take less time. The charge time will depend on the battery chemistry(The older NiCd batteries take longer to charge then the Lithium batteries.)
I hope this helps. Assuming you aren't dealing with a cold or hot battery or charging environment, if you have any suspicion about a faulty battery, replace it.
(Note: I have a 12V drill as well. Those batteries takes longer to charge for the same relative capacity than the 18V NiCd batteries.)
