Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JLB13694 I would not recommend any Ryobi 18-Volt One+ tool.
In the last 18 months, because of Ryobi's universal battery, I have purchased their small leaf blower, electric hedge trimmer, impact driver/drill set and their multi-tool. All the tools were stored for the winter and I charged all of the batteries before putting them away. This spring, much to my dismay, four of the six batteries were stone dead and when I put them on the charger, the all showed as defective. I thought, well, no problem because I bought them at Home Depot and I have receipts for all but one tool, the hedge trimmer. I also called Ryobi customer service to ask if they were having battery issues; naturally, I got the stand answer #1, oh no, our batteries are great, jus take them back to Home Depot and they will cheerfully replace them if they're less than three years old. WRONG "camel breath"! Some of my tools are at my house in Apple Valley, MN and some of them are at my lake-home in Crosslake, MN. So, because the production date on the tools and the batteries didn't match-up, the "cheerful customer service person" at the AV Home Depot, kept my tool for 10 days and did get me a free replacement for one battery. On a side-note, they do make two different batteries for those tools, one sells for about $39 the other about $59. (Has a battery state-of charge gauge like the Rigid 18V battery) The $59 one is good, the $39 one is junk!
I also found out Ryobi and Rigid are "sister" companies and if you don't register the tool, it doesn't have a lifetime guarantee and the battery guarantee is 3-years. I also have a Rigid 18-volt impact drill/driver set and love it. I now love it less after finding out it's also a Ryobi product.
As long as I'm complaining, I also bought a Dremel multi-tool from Home Depot and have used it for 3-4 small projects. It works awesome for special applications. When it was about 11 months old, the variable-speed switch quit working so it just runs at full speed. Anyone that uses this type of tool knows you have to start slow then increase the speed. So, it's virtually worthless as it is. So, I called their customer service, surprise, the switch has been discontinued so you are screwed. By the way for you people that love Dremel tools, they've been bought out by Bosch. I worked for Bosch and could write a book but my contract with them forbids me to bad-mouth the company.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pro60 no charge
After just several months battery does not charge. Charger indicator shows full charge. Indicator on battery shows one bar. Battery will not power any of my Ryobi tools. This is not the first Ryobi lithium battery I've had a problem with, plus they do not seem to last very long. I've had better luck with the standard batteries.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheHolyHandGrenade better of the two compact batteries
This battery is the better of the two "compact" Li-ion batteries that Ryobi currently (11/2012) offers It puts about 2.75 3/16 inch 5 inch deep holes in brick when combined with the P212B Hammer-Drill-Driver. (the P102, the other "compact" Li-Ion, does about 2.5...)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Msmall1950 Like this new and improved battery
I purchased this battery to replace the original that came with the hedge trimmer. The new batter has a longer charge hold, and a led display that shows how much power it left before it needs charging. Technology improves yearly on lithium batteries. Would recommend this product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Al2430 one out of two good
I bought a twin pack of the one+ batteries. When I got home and starting charging them one was defective. I return the bad one to the store and got a replacement. Now both charge, hold their charge, and work perfectly. I prefer the lithium+ over the NiCad and look to replace the older NiCad with the Lithium.
