Ryobi 40V 2.6A battery. When I put it on the charger the charger blinks green for about 10 minutes and then goes to solid green. However, after 5 minutes of use my Ryobi trimmer dies. I repeat the...

From your description the battery is probably faulty. If the batteries are still quite young it is possibly just one cell and while Ryobi don't refurbish batteries there are companies dotted around that do.

If it is a nicad battery, Ryobi told me just a couple of days ago they no longer supply nicad replacements and expect everyone to upgrade to lithium, which means also buying a charger.

My 40v Ryobi battery will not charge. The charge shows a flat red light that sometimes blinks. The battery shows as charged. It will not work.

Check the battery with your multimeter. If it reads below 36 volts (or whatever the cutoff point is) it may be damaged. But before you run off and buy a new one, use the multimeter to check the voltage from the charger.

Or borrow a good battery and see how your charger behaves.

that way, you can identify the cause of the problem

Ryobi 40v trimmer stops working with 1/2 charge left on battery

Battery is weak. Those lights are really useless...more a marketing gimmick. It almost sounds like it developed a memory...this happens when certain types of batteries are not fully discharged before being placed on the charger. Replace the battery and make sure to follow charging directions for that particular type of battery

Fuel mixture ratio for Ryobi SS300 weed eater

Are you sure about the model number? I see several 30CC engine string trimmers by Ryobi. Two are the Ryobi RY30040B (SS30) and a RY30544 (SS30).

For both of these models, mix a high quality 2-cycle engine oil at 2.6 oz. per gallon of gasoline to pour into the gas tank. This ratio is used in several other Ryobi string trimmer models. Many Ryobi product manuals are available here: . Most Ryobi gas powered and 40V battery-powered tools will have a model number that starts with RY. The 18 V battery powered models often start with a P.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with the actual model number, I may be able to provide more information.
