The release plate is not easily visible when the battery is plugged into the charger. A 2" square release plate is located underneath the indicator lights. To reach the release, grasp the charger in one hand to hold securely and the front of the battery in the other hand. Using your thumb on top and two fingers under the front of the battery below the charging indicator lights, press the plate (only one end of the plate will depress) as you pull on the battery to slide it off the charger. When you are recharging the battery, be sure the battery clicks securely into place or it will not charge.
Could be better explained, but is simple. Just grab the front of the battery and press the under release plate as you pull the battery off the charger. The charger itself is very lightweight and usually has to be held in one hand as you pull and press the release on the battery.
More Info: To check the charge, press the left most button beside the indicator lights of the battery. One to four lights will light up to indicate the charge level. 4 lights is full charge.
Read your booklet to understand the series of flashing lights located on the charger. One light does a quick 'test', one indicates 'charging', one indicates 'charged', one indicates a 'bad battery'. If the battery is not locked securely into the charger, the charge indicator lights will not light up. Read Less

Press the release by reaching in as far as you can. The hinge point is on the end toward you and it will not release unless you put the force on it ~ 1.5 inches in from pivot point.

Answer: 
A Ryobi 40v lithium ion battery will work in other Ryobi 40V LiO devices of the same generation. Generally a Ryobi will not fit other brand or other voltage devices as each mfg has their own connectors, and vice-versa. Ie, Ryobi and DeWalt, etc, batteries and devices are not interchangeable.

No. It is physically impossible. First, 40 volts would blow the 18 volt electric motor in the trimmer if yo somehow managed to jerry rig some arcane connection. Secondly look closely at the 40 volt battery pack and the 18 volt battery pack. See how totally different they are physically? A 40 volt Ryobi pack slides into its connection point and locks in.

It slides in on plastic rails that match the rails on the back side of the 40 volt pack.
The 18 volt packs are much smaller. They look kind of like they have a big plastic stem sticking out of them right? That stem is also a very specific shape. 18 volt Ryobi tools have a port hole that matches that shape. That is where you slide in the 18 volt packs and it locks in and makes connection. So no you cannot mix 18 volt packs with 40 volt tools and vice versa. Read Less

24 in. 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Hedge Trimmer - Battery and Charger Not Included is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 195.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works surprisingly well Having been impressed with the 40 volt string edger and blower decided to try this hedge trimmer. Have only used in a limited manner, trimming a couple 6-foot tall shrubs badly needing attention. Dealt with the task handily. Opted to not install the orange sweep on the top of the cutting bar as it seems so snug that once installed will not be easily removable. Just a choice, so cannot speak to that feature. Was surprised at the small amount of battery power used in completing the task - three of four charge indicator lights still lit and quickly recharged to full capacity .
Date published: 2016-07-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work awesome, wish there was a discount if I bought multi item for the 40V family but they didn't... Work awesome, wish there was a discount if I bought multi item for the 40V family but they didn't so end up slowly buying there brands

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good reach Was pleased to see that it came with a plastic guard for the blade teeth and the sweep for the top of the blade. This was the first time I've seen the sweep and it works nicely. Definitely would spend the extra money for the charger and battery since it's more expensive to buy them separately. It's light enough to use for areas above shoulder height but apparently wasps don't like to be disturbed that have a nest inside the bush or hedge. Got stung by a couple of the occupants of a nest I was not aware of.
Date published: 2016-08-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, a little heavy This was a great investment. Compared to other models, this product has a long cutting area and good power cutting through branches. It made quick work of my hedges. The only problem with the hedge trimmer is the weight. The battery is fairly heavy making the whole unit heavy on one side, but I don't have much to cut so it is fine. Not having the cord makes it easy to just take out and start trimming. If you have the 40 volt battery on another yard tool, this is well worth getting.
Date published: 2016-08-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Happy I have been using the Ryobi grass trimmer and blower for a couple of years and have been very happy. Recently my old hedge trimmer died so I gave the Ryobi a try and it has been very good. I was concerned it wouldn't have enough power or would use the battery up quickly but that is not the case. It did an excellent job for me and the battery life was very good. I would recommend this to those looking for a new hedge trimmer.
Date published: 2016-11-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Capable for Intended Purpose For a battery powered (40v liO) hedge trimmer with about a 22" cut, I give this a 5 star. The trimmer does what it is supposed to do and my spare Ryobi battery runs plenty long enough to do my average amount hedges and other trimmable bushes. And NO cords or gas and oil to contend with, and the only noise is the blades cutting and not a deafening gas motor. (An Aside: It works much better than the POLE hedge trimmer that I earlier purchased that attaches to my basic string trimmer. I don't recommend the POLE hedger because it becomes so overly heavy when extended, is awkward to use, cuts about 1/4' ragged cut) BUT HIGHLY recommend this self contained 24" 40v ion hedge trimmer that clean cuts 3/8" diam, pretty light, low noise, no motor and serves it purpose with no problem. That said, it has only been in use 2 months and 2-3 cuttings. Just hope that it holds up for at least 3-4 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good Bought the Ryobi 40-volt lithium-ion cordless hedge trimmer for my wife because she has the Ryobi 40-volt lithium-ion cordless string trimmer and could interchange the battery. So far, she has been satisfied with the products and the battery life. My ratings of "Excellent" are based on the fact she is not unhappy with the hedge trimmer. If she were unhappy, I am sure I would have heard about it.
Date published: 2016-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it! I bought this Hedge Trimmer without a battery and am sharing a battery with a Blower I have. I'm amazed that the one battery on just one charge will power both units through a complete yard session. Love the convenience of being able to just grab it and go. It's light enough to not be a problem and does a good job. I like it and will likely buy another tool or two from this selection.
