The description only talks of "one +" batteries. Are ordinary batteries compatable or is Ryobi pushing the customer to buy lithium?

Answer: 
no It doesn`t.the chargers that charge both NiCad and lithium will be labled "dual chemistry",all of their 18volt tools will use either style of battery.the main difference between NiCad and lithium to me is run time.the smallest lithium battery seems to last about 2x longer than the most powerfull NiCad.the bottom line in my eyes is lithium is just better

Customer Reviews

18-Volt ONE+ ToughTunes Radio/Charger is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had three in a row, all three went bad. No sound, charges fine. I had three in a row, all three went bad. No sound, charges fine. I bought my first one in January, radio had no sound two months later. Exchanged for a new one and second radio had no sound one month later. Exchanged for a third and third radio quit in two weeks. Now they seem to be unavailable. All three of my radios never even left my home and when I returned them to the store they still looked brand new. I take very good care of my tools. Hopefully they come out with a newer version so I can have music while I work. I need a radio that works AND charges 18v Ryobi Lithium batteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Radio Yet another "Must Have" Ryobi gadget. Sound quality of the radio is decent, but seems to sound better when playing off of an MP3 player. The storage compartment is large, and there is a small "shelf" to place your player on the exterior of the door. But I would avoid placing your player on the exterior of the storage door as it seems that vibration would eventually cause the player to fall off of the small shelf. Hook and loop material would work well there though. The radio looks sturdy but is not too heavy, I have a blue colored job site radio that weighs 25 pounds so the lighter weight is nice. Charging time is on par with all other Ryobi chargers. I have not run the radio on battery power for long so I cannot comment on run time. All in all a great addition to the Ryobi collection, although I think a better price point would be around $99-109.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the most reliable Good worksite radio with Phone/mp3 capabilities. I am on my second exchange. The power supply quit on my first one after 2 months. The charger quit on my second one after 2 months. My third unit is in shipping now. I did not have audiophile expectations from a worksite unit as others have stated (WTH are you thinking). I do expect it to function beyond 2 to 3 years of light use(let alone 2 months). I have several other Ryobi 18V tools that I use every weekend, so I do desire this format. I bought a couple of LION batteries to upgrade my collection so I needed the mixed chemistry charger. I really hope this one works out because I am fond of its performance and capabilities.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Its okay but could have been better I bought this radio and the 1st. thing that I noticed is the amplifier Hiss. I also can't seem to get the unit to preset radio stations. As far as sound goes it has a Mid Bass sound, but clear. Battery charger in it works with nicads, and lipo ryobi batteries, which is a plus. I would recommend this radio only if you have other ryobi tools to go with it. Ryobi listen to me carefully....next time you make a radio go to a reputable radio manufacturer such as pioneer, kenwood, jvc, etc. for a amplifier for a radio like this next time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea Being a home improvement contractor this was just what I need to charge my iPhone and my ryobi tools. Worked great for 2 months then the USB charger stopped working and now it stopped charging my Li 18vdc battery. I've always been a ryobi fan but now i'm feeling let down. The radio is ok but I bought it to charge my phone and I touch , I'm fed up with devices that keep failing after a month or so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value / Features done correctly It's ruggedly built. Has good sound considering the materials and construction. The USB jack is powered even when operating off of the 18v battery, so a cell phone or MP3 player can be powered/charged when it's not plugged into the wall. Green/Red charging indicators are located on the top-left of the front panel, so it's easy to see the status from a distance. As with any audio device, an tone or EQ control would have been nice. Not critical as most cell phone and MP3 audio players have that feature built into them, but would be nice for the radio aspect of this device. The compartment on the top-front should house any size cell phone or MP3 player. The audio/USB connections are inside the compartment. The 18V battery compartment on the rear has a cover to keep everything clean while charging. Two AAA batteries power the radios memory as well as the clock. The black plastic outer frame should protect it well from bumps while transporting it. Not sure how well it would hold up if dropped more than a foot or two, not that I plan to put it to the test! The power cord winds around two posts on the bottom which keep it out of the way when not in use, but subject the plug to mud/dirt when setting it down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally, a real jobsite radio/charger from Ryobi I am a small home repair contractor with an extensive collection of Ryobi 18V. tools. Much of my work is last minute work from new home owners or home owners needing to make fast repairs to complete a sale. I have honestly considered replacing my cordless collection just becasue I wanted the convience of a jobsite radio with a charger in it. Ryobi used to make some goofy little blue radio thing, that wasn't worth Ryobi's time to manufacturer. Yesterday, I stumbled across this radio and immediately bought it and took it to a job to try it out. Perfect! It charged my Ryobi lithiums (as quick as the regular charger, it plays the radio, plays my ipod (and charges it with a USB cord, it can will charge my phone with a USB cord, is loud enough for me, and looks good/tough. This is a great solution to my jobsite radio jealousy of the other major brands. Thank you Ryobi! Now the yellow, red, and orange tool fans can kiss off, I have a real jobsite radio too. As for the radio, I think the quality its 4 out of 5. There could be a few more features, but they covered the important ones, charge while listening, use spare battery to play radio, a USB port and a MP3/IPod connection. The only drawback is that I thought it was a little pricey for Ryobi, this may change over time. However, it is still cheaper than comperable radios from other manufacturers. The best part is that they made a needed product that Ryobi users/fans needed and wanted. If you use Ryobi 18V products, buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this radio! i had to return the first one i had because it didnt seem to be working right. When i got the new one it started doing the same thing. i actually think i was just not being patient enough. there are no issues with this radio. it is plenty loud, it charges my ryobi 18v batteries, it has aux in and it charges my iphone when im at the job site while playing pandora off myphone. you really cant beat this. the only thing i would add is a couple outlets for running tools like the bosch. but i understand that means a price tag closer to the bosch as well.
