20 Most Recent Ryobi Multi-Volt Battery Charger Questions & Answers


This usually indicates that one or more of the rechargeable C batteries is not recharging. The batteries are standard rechargeable C batteries but the terminals are spot welded and are very hard to separate. There are 15 rechargeable C batteries in the Ryobi 18v battery pack. A battery tester will show which battery(s) needs replacing. There are refurbishing centers (Google search) but they will replace all the batteries and usually upgrade the OEM 1500 mah batteries with 2100 mah, or higher, batteries.

Try rotating the plug that goes into the wall. I know it sounds irrelevant but ive had the same issue and it worked for me. The positive and negative may be reversed in the dock.

They have a built in trickle that shuts down after the battery is fully charged, you can leave it forever if you want. We leave ours plugged in overnight. I have one that is always on with a battery in it. Hope this helps.

Bad contact on battery use multymeter to check if voltage is there if not open the battery pack and see if bad connection exists or try another battery

try another battery in the charger

This behavior is typical of trying to charge a battery that is wither too hot (let it rest for a hour) or one that has done its job and is ready for the battery retirement home. Replace your battery for best results with your Ryobi battery powered tool.

The fuse in mine said 4 amp. I have also used. You can use a 4 amp or lower to replace the original one that blew.

Good Luck

Lithium Ion batteries don't charge the same way ni-cads or ni-mh do. You need a lithium ion specific charger to charge them. (Some chargers do multiple types.)

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

It appears that the recoil spring has broken and you will have to pull it apart to replace it

I have a feeling that the batteries might be the issue.
They might have dead cells or if they got to hot or cold the battery case can swell a little.
That will cause the issues you are experiencing.

Purchaseed Roybi P2102 cordless blower at Home Depot yesterday. Put battery on charger for 12 hours and it would not get past the "test" phase. Called Ryobi customer service 800-860-4050 (got a live person quickly), was told I had two options: take the blower back to HD for refund/exchange OR take it to the Tool Rental or Pro Desk at HD and they can test the charger/battery and can provide a replacement if defective, all FREE of course.

if it is not a rechargable battery it will not charge

I've open the charger and found that Q4 is open. But they have removed the part number from the component so you can't get a replacement.
