Ryobi Compatibility battery chart

Ryobi has one of the most extensive ranges of 18V cordless tools on the market. They quote to have over 100 tools, powered from One battery, from DIY power tools to outdoor power equipment and more.

With all these tools means ONE+You = anything you can imagine. If you can think of the tool then they have probably made it cordless.

So with all of the different cordless power tools on the market which battery is right for you? Which battery is compatible with your tools?

Huge Ryobi Battery Compatibility Chart

This chart shows you how compatible the Ryobi 18v One+ range of batteries is with all of their cordless tools. I have included the 1st generation NiCad batteries in case some of you still have them. They will work in all Ryobi power tools but with limited run time and lower power.

Note: These are from my own thoughts and real life experience only.

  • Not Recommended – May work but you will not get much power and limited run time.
  • Limited Runtime – Has the power but you will have only 10-minutes or so of runtime depending on the application.
  • Geen Tick – You are good to go. Lots of power and long run times.

Milwaukee to Ryobi battery adapter

Milwaukee, Dewalt battery to Ryobi 18V tools adapter

If you have a range of different power tools at home or on the job site you should have the Milwaukee, Dewalt battery to Ryobi 18V tools adapter.

I know it is quite a mouth full but basically, it allows you to use any Milwaukee or Dewalt battery in a Ryobi 18v power tool. It is perfect if you run out of power on a job site and just want to borrow another brand’s battery.

Ryobi Clone Batteries are they any good?

I have a mixture of Genuine and Clone 18v batteries in my toolbox. Recently I have started to buy the cheaper aftermarket batteries as they just save me money.

I have done a full review here on the teardown of cheap Ryobi batteries. They are surprisingly well made with real high capacity lithium-ion cells inside.

Can you charge a Ryobi NiCad battery with a lithium charger?

Ryobi battery not charging fix and flashing red

Yes, my Ryobi BCL1418 charger says on the back label that it is compatible with Lithium and Ni-Cd 18v battery packs.

If you do have issues with flashing red lights on your charger or dead batteries then check out this post on How to Fix a Ryobi Battery that Won’t Charge.

Can you charge a Ryobi Lithium battery with a Ni-Cd charger?

No, you cannot charge a Ryobi Lithium 18v battery in an older Ryobi Ni-Cd charger. The voltage sensing circuit is not set up for Lithium-Ion batteries.

Quick History of Ryobi Batteries

Ryobi Battery Compatibility 18v one+ range inside the battery P108

Ryobi started the production of power tools in 1968. Over that time they have made great inroads into the codless power tool marked for the home handyman.

Their 18v range started with the humble NiCad batteries. These were very susceptible to the memory effect. This is where if you didn’t fully discharge the battery they would slowly lose their maximum capacity.

The new range of Lithium-ion 18v batteries solved this problem and enabled much quicker discharge and recharge rates.

The fact that Ryobi kept the same battery form standard meant that users didn’t have to throw away their old 18v cordless tools. In fact, they are my tool of choice as an Electrician. Every man should have these tools in his garage.

Conclusion

I hope that you have found this Ryobi Battery Compatibility Chart useful. I only need 5 Ryobi batteries to do my trade as an Electrician. I have:

  • 2x 18v One Plus Slimline batteries 2.5Ah
  • 2x 18v One+ High Capacity 4Ah clone batteries
  • 1x 18 One+ Lithium+ Extra-High Capacity 9Ah Genuine Battery

With the slimline batteries being used for weight saving tools like the drill driver or grinder. They will last a few hours of intermittent use.

The 4Ah are great for more power-intensive tools like the chain saw, lawnmower, and circular saw. These are a heavy battery and will wear you down over the day if you have your tool hanging off your tool belt.

The 9Ah battery is my monster. It will power any tool all day long. Great for table saws and chain saws. But it is heavy and large.

Throw away those old Ryobi 18v Nicad (Ni-Cd) batteries they are useless and don’t hold a charge longer than a few weeks. I have had great success with the Ryobi aftermarket clone batteries. They are cheap and are just as good as genuine.

1 COMMENT

  1. My friend left me all his power tools. He turned me on to Ryobi a few years ago so I bought several that use the 40V batteries. His are 18V and only the battery left on the leaf blower was good. I probably fubared several of the red flashing batteries but now that I know the one battery that works runs all the tools, I can just buy some slim 18V and a couple heavy duty ones and be done with the rest.
    Thank you so much!
