Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pinyot Really good battery but.....
Bought a pair of these last year, one still works perfectly but the other did not hold its charge. Found out how to balance the cells. Once balanced, it has been working perfectly once again. I believe this is a common issue with Li-ion battery packs.

I bought a set of these and one battery only took 2 charges the other took 4 before they would no longer charge. I used 2 different chargers both of which charged my other batteries. I returned them to homedepot and they gladly exchanged them. The next set I got only lasted about 5 or 6 charges before they began to fail. I've bought my last piece of roybi equipment. I have a drill, trimmer and blower. I have several different batteries and none of them get even 30% of the run time they advertise.

I had two of these batteries come with a driver as part of a kit and they both died within months of purchasing. One died within a month and the other within 6 months. Worse, they were sold with a defective charger that is now being recalled by Ryobi. Ryobi wouldn't replace them as they were out of warranty. But even the charger would recognize the batteries as defective, sometimes. Other times, no.
Measured voltage across contacts and it was only putting out 10V as opposed to the necessary 18V. Stay away from this and Ryobi one+ tools until they fix this defect. Tools are useless without the necessary batteries.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handygirl A battery that holds a charge.......FINALLY
When I first got this drill, I also picked up a spare battery. Two weeks later, the spare battery would not hold a charge or even charge up. I bought this spare battery because in an office environment, no one knows how to put a drill on a charger when it's dying so when you really need it, there's no juice left to it. I bought this charger and it's been working great! So nice to have a spare because it is always me that needs it and it's dead! Priced just right!

I purchased a master kit with all the one+ tools. I recieved 2 chargers and 4 batteries. I charged the batteries and used the tools ONE TIME. Then I put two of the batteries on the charger/maintainers. About a month later I switched out the batteries in the chargers. We just had a very cold snap and went out to my garage to switch out the batteries since it had been about two months and both batteries that were out of the chargers will not take a charge and are giviving a fault reading. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. I want to be clear I used the tools for about 15 minutes in 6 months and the two batteries that died had never been used. If the next two batteries do this I will never buy another Ryobi product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Finn So far so good
Everything worked as expected. It is a nice upgrade from the Ni-Cad batteries I had.

I purchased 2 of these batteries 2 months ago. both charged ok initially, but immediately after a single use, one of them was unable to be charged. also, both batteries have built in overload circuitry and if you're in the middle of a job, such as drilling, the tool instantly shuts off with no warning. going back to NiCd
