Answer: 
Yes, I bought the combination set of string trimmer and hedge trimmer and this battery will work with both. It actually seems to run the tools better than the stock battery that came with the set.

Great question and surprisingly difficult to find a clear answer. One answer here says yes, then shows a link to the OP243 which is entirely different.

Answer: 
The 24 volt battery is very quick charge -- the average is 2 - 3 hours. You are correct if the battery takes this long to charge it is now a bad battery --- the reason I have to have several batteries on hand. They don't last more than a few years.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi 24v Battery After 2 years the original battery died ! I went looking in several Home Depots for another one , they don't sell them in any stores. You have to order them online! I paid 129.99 for 1 battery pack only because I really like the weed wacker .. What really bothers me is how expensive the batteries are to replace I could have bought another weed wacker for less money but decided against that because mine was only 2 years old!! August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Edmundo12151 The battery holds its charge well and recharges in a short time. August 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by product not found in stores This product is not found in stores making it very inconvenient when a new battery is needed. The product is very over priced and there is no substitute. Unfortunately the weed eater requires this product and we are forced to pay the high price. The weed eater and the battery are excellent just wish the price was reasonable and available in stores. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Discontinued Battery This rechargeable battery charged up quickly - 1 hour. It runs my hedge clippers and string trimmer from Ryobi just fine. However, you cannot leave this battery out of the charger for any length of time as the battery will discharge and not recharge again. Charger reports battery defective. This was an expensive lesson to learn. You also must order this battery online as it's not available in the stores. I believe Ryobi has discontinued these batteries and devices. But for using this battery and devices for its first season, they work great. Thanks. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good battery So far so good. Purchased this battery to use as an additional battery while I edge around my lawn. I purchased one of the trimmer combo and that was nice. However, the battery charge of the original product was not enough to edge the entire lawn. So, I purchased an additional battery so I can do my entire lawn at one time. Now the key is to see how long it lasts over time. The original battery, which is similar, is still holding charge pretty much as the first time used. I'm sure there has been some degradation. However, I have not noticed the difference. Expensive, but productive. May 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Junk. Used about 3 times and battery is now bad. Extremely expensive for something that doesn't even work and is not reliable. I'll shop another brand from now on. June 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A good additional battery for two 24 volt tools Ryobi recently discontinued it 24 volt cordless garden tool line, and this battery (OP242) was purchased as an extra, exactly matching the size (56 Wh capacity) that came with my spin trimmer. The smaller capacity Ryobi battery that came with some runs of Ryobi tools got very poor reviews on many websites and has been confused with this model, with which I've had no problem for the past two years now. Like all lithium batteries, I think that it is overpriced. May 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Battery Dead? Try this fix Like everyone else, my battery went dead. Left it off the charger in the winter for a month. Plugged it in and charger indicated battery was defective. So, I took the battery apart - there was no way I was going to spend $119 for a battery. Using a voltmeter, I noticed that the T2 terminal and positive terminal registered small voltage when tested. However, when testing the negative and positive terminals there was no voltage. When I tested the negative wire before it entered the circuit board and positive terminal it registered voltage. My solution was to splice in a wire from the wire going into the center of the circuit board to the wire coming out of the circuit board (circumventing the circuit board). Put the battery back together, plugged it in the charger and it indicated testing for a few minute; then it turned green and started charging. Battery works fine now. I uploaded an simple diagram of my fix. The blue line is the wire I spliced in. As a previous poster indicated, you must keep this battery on the charger. I think what happens as the previous poster indicated, is that the internal circuit board draws a little bit of power constantly. When the power in the battery gets too low (dead), the charger registered it as "defective." Is it a design flaw with the circuit board? Probably. From my understanding, lithium ion batteries have no memory and can be charged many thousands of times without a problem. Hope this helps someone! April 23, 2015
