NO! Never charge lithium batteries in a charger designed for nickle based batteries like the NiHi your old charger was meant for. Ryobi did design the new Lithium charger to be backwards compatible so you can charge your older 18V NiHi batteries in the Lithium 18V charger.
Also note, NEVER miss-match the voltage, for example, make sure you are not trying to charge 12V batteries in an 18V charger unless the manufacturer has specifically stated that the charger is capable of multiple voltages.

    If your old Ryobi charger is a ONE and your new lithium batteries are One ...then you absolutely can charge your new batteries on your old Ryobi charger

    What does the OP mean by a "regular" Ryobi charger? He may mean a green charger designed for Lithium batteries, but it sounds more like he is speaking of the blue-gold charger and Ni-Cd battery. Ni-Cd chargers will ruin Lithium batteries.

I have a P115 Ryobi Intelliport charger , will it charge the new lithium 18 V battery?


Ryobi P115 is an 18V battery charger. However, Ryobi Manual did not mention the current rating of P115. if the current rating of Ryobi P115 is 50% higher than your 18V Lithium Battery it will charge. but if it's less than or equal, it will not.

Hi,
Some of batteries drain very quickly. Depends on how they are used.
Feel free to check Your Local battery Manufacturer for best prices for all different batteries. You name it and they have it or they can custom make a battery for you.

Thanks

That is true the One+ 18V Li-Ion battery packs will work in any One+ 18V Ryobi tool. However the Lithium ion batteries will not charge in the original P110 NiCd charger. You will need one of the the new series Ryobi One+ 18V "dual chemistry" chargers for that. The will charge both types of battery packs.

What Ryobi batteries p103 or p104 will a battery charger that came with my p100 batteries charge? Or will the charger work with these batteries?


If you have a P100 NiCad battery, the charger for that will not charge the new Lithium Ion P103 or P104 batteries. You need a specialised Ryobi Lithium Ion battery charger like this one

Can I use the ryobi P110 charger with the P103 lithium-ion batteries ? Thank You


No. The P110 is for NiCad batteries. Any of the Li-Ion chargers like the P113 are backwards compatible and can charge either but do not try to charge Li_ion batteries in a NiCad or NiHi charger.

How long have these 2 batteries been standing idle without being charged? Lithium ion batteries can still discharge if left for too long. There is a voltage detector which detects whether the cells are too far discharged to be safely charged again and if that occurs the circuit is broken and the batteries will be deffective in the charger.
I have had the same problem with these and other LI batteries. Answer is replace the batteries and then make sure they are given a quick charge on a regular basis. However common advice seems to be that LI's should not be kept fully charged, but just partially charged until needed, then charge them for use, especially if usage is sporadic

The battery will power your equipment for 30 to 45 minutes, that is normal. What you're thinking of is the lifespan of a lithium battery. It with your battery will last 10 times longer than a regular NiCad battery. So you will be able to charge the battery and use it Hundreds of times before the Battery Life is depleted. Sounds like it's working as designed

Does it harm a Ryobi 18v lithium battery to leave on Charger?


Lithium-Ion batteries require careful charging and temperature monitoring while in the charger. Ryobi's Charging station monitors many functions and shuts off when the battery has gone through a complete charge. This is indicated by a steady Green light. Once the Charge indicator is a steady green the charger stops charging. With any battery It will slowly discharge and I don’t think the Ryobi will maintain a battery that is never removed. For example, if after a complete charge cycle if the battery was left there for 2 years and then you went to use it, it would likely be completely discharged. However if the battery charger is unplugged then plugged back in a new charge sequence would start. I lose power at my house about every 6 months or so. Once power is restored a new cycle would start and the charging cycle begins again.
Hope this helps and have a great day.

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)
