Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by J_Jules They are unreliable
I have gone through 2 of these batteries so far. The original one that came with my weed trimmer stopped working and would not hold a charge the year after buying it. I was told it was not covered.
I bought a second replacement battery (this one in the picture) and the exact same thing happened. Plugged it in this spring to trim the edges and it wont charge. Brought it into one of the Ryobi warranty guys local and he said it went due to the circuit board most likely. Ryobi said it was under warranty and could confirm the date it was made but refused to cover it because I did not have the receipt of purchase.
I refuse to spend money buying a new battery every year because they are made defective! Plus, they confirmed the battery manufacture date but still wont cover it.
I am done with these.

I do not know how your power is but here in Louisville many times its down, out, blinks, you name it so having a battery back up is a good idea! This battery has preformed wonderfully it made me trustworthy of Ryobi battery products so i bought the cordless drill and weed trimmer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DarthMalgus Proprietary and expensive
The price of the battery and charger were more than half the price of the nailer. Ryobi should find a way to package the nailer, battery and charger as one unit and assess a reasonable price.

I bought a three tool set and although I like the tools (blower, skill saw, weed wacker) the batteries suck out loud!! They quite talking a charge after a few months at best. I have replaced 4 of these and like other reviewers I will continue to take these back as soon as the quit.

The drill is great but these batteries arent. They have a short life then they go dead and aren't chargeable anymore.

More than I can say about HiTech Lithium junk

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by none one+ 18-volt lithium-ion compact battery
i bought this lithium battery with the instructions it could be charged with the old charger, i was given the wrong information. The old chargers will not charge the new lithium batteries, so i am now stuck in buying a new charger for lithium batteries. Very dissapointing.
