Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MaryTurner 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...

I've had the unit for several months and it is powerful and works great but, after only using it for about a month and a half, when I went to charge the battery I was getting a light pattern on the charger stating that the battery was defective. I emailed Home depot.com and they sent me out a replacement unit and it worked fine. That was about a month and a half ago as well. I just attempted a recharge this past Saturday after using it and the same condition appeared. This time I emailed Ryobi and have yet to hear from them. If I fail to receive a plausible answer as to why this is happening and another replacement battery and perhaps charger as well, I am going to send the complete unit back for a full refund.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dissapointed BATTERIES FAIL - DO NOT PURCHASE
Over the last several years I have purchased many of the Ryobi 40V battery powered garden tools all of which perform very well. But, recently one of my 3 batteries failed, and according to many others owners battery failure is common.
Assuming a 10 year lifetime of the tools and the historic failure rate of these batteries I will have to spend many hundreds of dollars in replacement batteries to be able to continue to use these tools.
Consequently until Ryobi and Home Depot are willing to replace or improve these defective batteries I cannot recommend them or the tools that use them to anyone. And If I had previously been aware of these battery problems I would not have purchased any of these tools.

Ordered online as NONE in store.
The unit when working does fine (nice power but short use time)
When this arrived I opened it , read the directions, charged the battery and put it to use. The first use lasted 10 minutes and it died. The indicator on the battery itself said it needed charged. Once it was on the charger, it would not charge, "faulty battery" indication. Went to the store for a exchange and guess what, NONE in stock ("a common problem with these batteries I was told"). I was given a in store credit and told to order a new one online, paying with the store credit.
6 days latter I received the replacement battery. Charged it and got about 20 minutes run time. Just charged it again and the good news is it took a second charge. Time will tell

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 5680 BEST INVESTMENT I HAVE MADE
I HAVE STARTED USING THE TRIMMER IMMEDIATELY AND THE BATTERY IS STILL IN A PRETTY GOOD CHARGE. USING THE ENTIRE PRODUCT HAS MADE MY LIFE MUCH EASIER.
GREAT VALUE FOR THE MONEY

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Freewheeler Shockingly good deal!
Sometimes I have a problem removing the battery from either the charger or weed wacker unit, and that is partly due to my crippled hands and not strong enough. Love the way unit hums when its working and how easy the operation is.
