Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToolboyNC Ryobi P150 Fuel Gauge: Great! And then some..
This gizmo works great to check the charge level on batteries which don't have a built-in meter. Handy for checking Li-Ion batteries in-store before purchasing that tool kit on clearance. (If the meter won't come on, don't buy the kit.)
I've also modded a couple of these to make my own new devices. My favorite mod is the USB charger -- drill a small hole in the back, feed through a couple of wires lap soldered onto the battery contacts, and put a 5v regulator with USB socket(s) on the end. Voila, now you have a very powerful USB charger with built-in level meter!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thebeardedlepruchan Simple and easy to use
Great for use on my batteries that do not have a gauge on them. Also works on the ones that do.
Also like the clip for hanging up or clipping to my belt to have handy while using my tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WTDC Works great!
I use my Ryobi tools constantly...and it's quite frustrating when the battery dies when I'm at the most critical part of the job...like up on the ladder or clear across the house in the attic. Now I know how much charge I have on my batteries and I can use the battery with adequate power to get through the job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GaryC Great little tool. Too bad HD has stop selling it.
Great little tool. Too bad HD has stop selling it. The Ryobi web page lists it but their link takes you to the HD web page that says "discontinued". I recommend this tool if you can find it somewhere else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BruceW Helps monitoring batteries
I have a few older Lithium One+ batteries that haven't got the push-button gauge to check battery level, and this battery fuel gauge works wonderfully to monitor when I need to change out and charge those batteries.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joefor Great tool, I want another but it's out of stock.
I use this all the time to check battery state of charge.
I would like to see a USB port to charge my phone when there is no power around, "hint"
I want another but no one has...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bartzip Battery Checker
It is a wonder that this item has not come out sooner. For a very inexpensive $9.95 you can easily and readily check your batteries level. This product is so simple to use it is like the garage door opener. What took so long. Actually I put this product along side the TV Remote as some thing that saves time , money, and convenience. I plan to buy another just to have in my car in case I forget mine on any project.I use it to check any Ryobi battery project before I start or allow for charging time as necessary.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobifan excellent tool! money saver!
Before I climb up the himalayas, I can make sure my batteries are fully charged. There is nothing worst than climbing all the way up the mountain to build an out house and find out your batteries are dead. Going all the way down and then back up causes me allot of chafing. What's also great about this tool, is that I could buy the lithium batteries with out the meter built in and save allot of money. With the money I save, I could buy a new pickup truck to impress my future exwife.
