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.

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

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 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

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 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

Answer: 
I just purchased a new Ryobi 40V battery two days ago from Home Depot. It still says 4026 on the back. I checked Ryobi's website, https://www.ryobitools.com/products/details/500, it clearly states that the 4026A will work on ALL Ryobi 40V tools. That indicates to me that the 4026 & 4026A are interchangable... Hope this helps... Len Smith

Hello Adam. The OP4026A is the accessory battery. It has an "A"on the end of the model number on the packaging to denote that it is an accessory battery purchase. Both batteries the OP4026 and the OP4026A are the same batteries and will be listed in the packaging. I hope this helps!

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 193 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 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 Faulty product I bought this battery as a back-up for the 40 volt pole saw, weed whacker and cordless leaf blower, all of which I purchased this year. I received the battery 2 weeks after placing the order, then attempted to charge it on the Ryobi 40 volt charger. Battery was defective and would not charge. Returned it the next day and purchased another one which I ended up returning 2 weeks later after it quit working. I purchased a third one...we'll see how long this one lasts! I really regret purchasing any of Ryobi's 40 volt tools due to the short life of the batteries. August 16, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by love the trimmer and blower, but 2nd battery to die within 4 charges I love the tools... The trimmer is awesome, the blower is awesome - however I have gone through 2 batteries that dont seem to last more than 4 charges. I dont understand what I could be doing wrong. I will begin to use the tool and it will randomly stop working. I click the battery tester and it shows full charge. I try again and sometimes the tool will begin to work and allow me to finish the job. However this is the identical symptom right before the battery can no longer be charged. 2 batteries dead within 60 days of purchase. I will exchange it again at home depot but it really hurts my feelings. I LOVE THE TRIMMER, but HATE THE BATTERIES... July 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Known defective batteries I purchased both the 40 volt Ryobi string trimmer and the 40 volt Ryobi blower from Home Depot. Both batteries quit at the 4 month point. I googled the problem, and sure enough it is an extremely common problem. Home Depot won't stand behind this defective low quality Chinese product, telling me I should have spent extra on a warranty. August 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beware this Battery-Expensive for Less than Five Charging cycles Purchased two of these batteries for use with a Trimmer, RY40002. Neither battery made it to five cycles without failing (charger gives alternating Red and Green flashes). $99 is too much for a battery that can't make it through 5 cycles. Read a review that said the batteries need to be stowed indoors, but our garage hasn't gone below 50 degrees, or above 90. Any product designed for outdoor use should be able to handle that temperature range. August 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Battery! This battery has a long life and is not so heavy that it makes using the trimmer/edger/blower/hedge trimmer un comfortable. I would recommend this battery to anyone that has a Ryobi tool that it fits. September 8, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by disappoined in life of battery before recharge is needed purchased this as a back up as original battery charge only lasts for 20 minutes of weed eating then when i got it home it was defective and had to return to the store for an exchange hope this isn;t a sign that this battery will provide even less up time than my original version these tools are a great idea but battery charge/use time needs improvement August 17, 2016
