Answer: 
Odd, how "Ryobi Outdoors" did not answer the question on expected life charge cycles. So, I'll ask directly again: Regardless of warranty, what is this product's expected life/charge cycles? You have product testing, and yes, I understand usage may vary. But you still have data...

Answer: 
Extremely disappointed with this Ryobi 40v lithium ion battery. The battery is now shot after only a handful of uses. It shows a full charge, but only runs for a second before cutting off. The actual tools, however, works perfect and basically some of the best I have owned (jet blower and string trimmer).

Answer: 
My battery lasted only a few months and even though it shows a full charge, it will operate the trimmer only a few seconds before going flat. Many others have complained of the same problem. If you buy this product be prepared to exercise the warranty many times. The idea behind the product is good but the batteries are VERY prone to failure- at $100 a pop make sure the warranty is registered.

Thank you, Dione. We do not have an exact run time on our batteries. It depends on many different things such as what kind of grass you are cutting, whether it is dry or wet, how thick it is, etc.

Answer: 
If its the battery that came with the mower 25 minutes to 30 of good mowing then its recharge time. Remember there are 4 different Ryobi 40 volt batteries. The "kit" battery is actually very good and should last a long time. But there are 2 packs above it in amp hour ratings(They hold much more power for longer)and you have to buy the online only Ryobi 40 volt charger to charge them.

The "kit" charger only charges the kit pack. Yes I know it is more money especially the $120 for the biggest baddest 5 amp hour pack as well as $50 for the online only charger but after 5 years of beating my 40 volt Ryobi tools to death NONE have failed. Once I noticed the kit packs running low on capacity ability I spent the money for the 5 amp hour pack and charger. It is like giving your machine steroids and with it you can count on an hour or more of cutting through tuff stuff. Read Less

Answer: 
the default answer of course lol:
it all depends on your usage depending on the growth you will be cutting. the thicker/longer the cutting is, the less time the battery lasts. mow once a week on standard carpet grass etc and you should get a couple of hours usage. also running a weed eater calls for multiple batteries & chargers.
i have 2 chargers with 3 batteries for my home.

i have tools that use the 40 volt battery:
- chainsaw
- mower
- shrub edger
- weed eater
all of them require the, IMHO, 3 batteries @ a minimum & probably i should have 4 or even 5 batteries to rotate thru, all depending on how heavy the usage is

It depends on how you use it, I've had run times as short as 15-20 minutes and as long as 35 to 45 minutes. The trick that I have found is not to be constantly running the motor like you would for a conventional corded or gas powered blower. For instance if you are using a forward swinging motion to push leaves ahead of you then cut the power on your backswing. If you use a side to side motion then run Read More

For instance if you are using a forward swinging motion to push leaves ahead of you then cut the power on your backswing. If you use a side to side motion then run it at about 1/2 to 3/4 power and you should easily get 25 to 30 minutes.
Other things that I have found is that it is much better at moving debris over hard ground than over grass which is the same with most blowers but the issue is much more pronounced with a battery powered blower Read Less

That's about what mine does. It helps to run the blower at slower speed if you don't need it at max. But 15 minutes is in the ballpark for full speed. That blower draws a LOT of current.
That battery is rated at 94W-hr, but that's at a much lower discharge rate than the blower demands. Assuming that the blower is around 1/3hp (a guess based on equivalent power/performance of gas types) that's around Read More

Assuming that the blower is around 1/3hp (a guess based on equivalent power/performance of gas types) that's around 250W or (again, estimating) around 6A to 7A. Battery capacity at this discharge rate is much less than the test conditions that result in the 94W-hr rating, so a 15-20 minute runtime should be about what you'd expect. Read Less

That sounds about right. I also have a blower and I have found that it discharges the 40V battery considerably faster than my string trimmer, mower or hedge trimmer. I have more than one 40V battery and therefore have an additional ones charged and ready. If you only have one battery, and need more than 15 minutes of blowing time...Well, a re-charging break will definitely be part of your leaf blowing Read More

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 212 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The tools are great, but a battery has gone bad after just a couple uses. i got a 40 volt hedge trimmer, blower, and weed whacker. They are noticably stronger than my 18 volt versions, I was really disappointed to find that one of the batteries would not take a charge after only a couple of uses. I googled the warranty and called the number that came up and they are sending me a new battery but I have a half dozen of the 18 volt for a couple of years and never a problem with any of them. By the way, if you are buying a 40 volt battery separately, the 5 amp for $139 seems like a lot better deal that the 2.4 for $99. I think they just use the newer double density cells on the 5 amp, it is no bigger and seems no heavier. September 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very poor battery life I put a full charge on battery when brand new. Charge lasted about 10 minutes. I assumed that it needed "seasoning". On fifth full charge it lasted 13 minutes. Very disappointed in this Ryobi product. Will try a couple of more times then return if I can't get at least 20-25 minutes October 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst product ever The tools are ok but the battery is total junk. Ryobi refers you to HD for wareentee replace but yore dependent on getting a manager To agree. I've had 4 in 3 years and ready to fight to replace 2 more. One purchased in May 16. Not even complete mowing season. I'm surprised they continue to see this junk. Unfortunately I have 4 of the tools so have to continue the fight to get replacements under ware Enter! October 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 40V Battery My husband and i purchased a blower and trimmer along with this battery. The battery is AWFUL! Was holding charge well when we first purchased, however has been sporadic in holding charge the last 3 weeks, then completely lost all charge today after being plugged in for hours. Very frustrating! The only reason i'm giving this two stars, is the excellent customer service from Ryobi. I called directly, and they are sending a new battery free of charge right away. We will see how long this new one lasts... October 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Crapshoot if you get one that works Bought 2, 1 was dead out of box. Other charged and seems to be useful, but history has shown me these seem to only last about 6 months (10 or so uses). Way too expensive per use. Ridiculous that Ryobi sells expensive hardware to go with this battery, then, if you don't want to eat the 100's of bucks you've invested, you have to deal with this battery mess. This may put Ryobi on my "do not buy" list if they don't get a good battery out there soon.... HD did receive the bad one back without a problem. Just sucks this stuff gets to market and wastes peoples time and money. September 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Failed to charge after 8 uses The Ryobi trimmer came with this battery. The charger indicates after only eight uses (and subsequent charging), that it is defective and will not charge. In fact, the battery had about a 1/4 of a charge when I put it on last and has now drained to nearly no charge. It can only be mounted in the charger one way and was properly mounted. Several attempts, same result. Don't buy Ryobi. It's a shame, because the trimmer is fairly powerful and lightweight. This battery though, worthless. The Home Depot reviews for the trimmer were positive, which influenced my choice. They indicated the 40v would run for an acceptable amount of time, but the 18v were too short. August 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 40v batteries are defective I bought the 40v string trimmer, blower and the hedge trimmer attachment. I got two batteries and two chargers. I like the power of the 40v tools, however, both batteries failed after using 6 to 8 times. I'll now forced to try the warranty path or buy another $99 battery since I have so much invested in the tools. Meanwhile, the grass continues to grow. September 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Defective Bought the battery as a backup for our other one. When I got it home, it wouldn't charge. Had to go back to the store and get another one. That one was OK. For what these cost, I'd expect better quality control. I'll looking at the competition's equipment closer in the future. October 4, 2016
