12-Volt Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 54.

Next day is was a little cold I went to use the tool it was in and it was dead. It would not charge. It has not worked since. My neighbor had the same problem with his battery also. None of the stores around here carry the battery and the online is sold out. I have a number of Ryobi products, none top of the line. Last Ryobi I will buy since I have received NO SUPPORT FROM Home Depot on this product and quite honestly I don't think they ever care. I have several tools that are now useless because of it. A new Lowes in the area, at least they stand behind their products. Bitter

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The battery does work however is if get down below 40 degrees it will the battery and it will nev... The battery does work however is if get down below 40 degrees it will the battery and it will never work again, (And the Home Depot repair shop in my area do not have the capabilities to test the Ryobi 12volt batteries). To my knowledge as of this date, Ryobi has never fixed this issue. The 18V seems to do a little better but it to cannot be stored below 40 degrees. Dewalt XRP's seem's to be a lot better at colder temps. As a contractor this was a real problem as my tools are stored in a work trailer. So gave away all of my common Ryobi 12v and 18v work tools, saws, drills, etc. I switch to mainly using Dewalt tools and batteries and if I leave them out in cold temps for a few days, No Biggie they still work fine. I hadn't had a problem with my Dewalt XRP's in over 5 years. I hear the 20volts have their issues too so I'm sticking with 12volts for now. But if you can store the Ryobi's inside where it's warm they should do OK. I have over 20 batteries and just about as many charger. I have no room in for them. (However I must say that the tools always worked great, they generally always out lasted the batteries.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AVOID THIS PRODUCT!!!!! I bought the 12v combo of Drill, Circular saw, Reciprocating Saw and flash light with 2 batteries and 1 charger for $99, batteries didn't last long. I bought this combo because of the price and the amount of times i was going to use. i used it no more than 10X (light duties only) in 1 year and the batteries went defective. The amount of power the batteries can hold it was not enough to power the Miter Saw and Jig saw even when I charge the batteries. So now i'm stuck with brand new never used Circular saw and Reciprocating saw. I refuse to buy new 12v batteries!!! So for fathers day, i bought myself 18v Drill and impact drill combo and bought the extra 2 year warranty....just in case.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Another unhappy consumer Thanks to all of the other reviews I did not make the same mistake and spend the $ to replace these poorly designed/manufactured batteries. I also agree the drill itself is great - lightweight, and with plenty of power to do small jobs WHEN YOU HAVE A WORKING BATTERY. However, the batteries failed to hold a charge after a few months, then registered as "defective" on the charger as everyone else has stated. I bought an 18-V Drillmaster from Harbor Freight for half as much money as a single one of these replacement batteries. But it is large and unwieldy for someone with arthritis as I have, so I guess you just can't win.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ryobi 12V battery unreliable Received the Auto hammer kit (tool, battery and charger) for Father's Day 2013 as a gift (no receipt). I used it initially a few times that year. This summer I wanted to use it again and the battery would not charge. Looked up warranty and it is for three years (receipt required). However, if the battery was part of a kit purchase NO receipt is required. Took the kit to my local service center (currently Kingston, Ontario). They contacted Ryobi and were told that Ryobi would not honor the warranty because the tool was stamped 2009 as date of manufacture, and they applied three years from that date. Disappointed no trust from a major company, as manufacture date has no bearing on purchase date. Things can stay unsold for years. Since there is an obvious issue with the reliability and stability of this item (internet full of defective battery claims for new and seldom used batteries), Ryobi should replace every person's battery that had reported a problem with the 12V type. I have several 18V Ryobi tools and I have no problems with those batteries.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Drill Purchase!!! Bought this drill 6 months ago, used it a handful of times since the purchase date. I have literally charged the battery twice in that time. Went to charge it today and found I have a defective battery. Complete waste of money. Take a trip to Harbor Freight and buy something for cheaper that is higher quality than this piece of junk. If I could find the receipt I would try to get my money back .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POOR QUALITY i bought the whole set 2 years ago (drill, battery and charger). I hardly used it since I always call a handyman to do some repair/s Just recently when I tried to use it, it didn't work (of course the battery's charge was consumed after years of inactivity). So when I tried to charge the battery I noticed the red and green lights kept on flashing, I thought it was just because I just charge the battery and after a couple of minutes or hours it will normalize the charging, but unfortunately it di not, the flashing of the red and green lights continued. This means that the battery was/is defective after just a couple of uses. I went to Home Depot to buy a new battery but unfortunately they don't have it in the store and the sales clerk said I can buy it online. After reading the reviews and checked the rating of only 2.4 star I felt good that it was not only me who experienced this bad situation. I am not buying any RYOBI products anymore.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from avoid at all costs both of the batteries that came with the drill went bad in about a year with very little use. They look like new and the charger rejects them as faulty. I'll bet there's a known problem with these. They never had enough power to keep from shutting down with minor torque in the first place.
