Yes, both are required. However if you own any battery and charger from the Ryobi 18 Volt One+ system you can use it to work your saw. You can also buy a kit that will bring the battery and charger and then keep adding tools.

It's an 18-Volt tool. No battery operated tool will run without the battery. If it's dual power (battery and a/c), it will say so like the new work light. The reason for selling some of their tools without a battery is to save you money instead of making you pay for a battery and charger for each tool you buy. Typically the batteries that come with some of the tools are the cheapest/smallest they make. Read More

Typically the batteries that come with some of the tools are the cheapest/smallest they make. You're better off buying a couple of their top of the line batteries because a charge lasts forever. You can sometimes find them in a 2 pack for $109.00 and normally its close to $100 for one. Here's the link to their best 2 pack battery and their single charger.

I do not recommend buying this tool anyway. It works great but you must buy Ryobi blades and they don't even sell Ryobi jigsaw blades in the stores. In Raleigh anyway... It's supposed to accept standard T-shank blades but it doesn't. All they sell at HD is Bosch jigsaw blades with the exception of 1 or 2 knock off brands. The Bosch blades will not fit properly. I'd say the Bosch blades are the standard size and Ryobi has screwed up on this tool. I have several Ryobi tools and this is the only one I've been disappointed in. I emailed Ryobi and they gave me a lame excuse that the Bosch blades were too thick. I ground down one of the Bosch blades almost paper thin, and the blade locking collar still wouldn't lock like it should. It's the T part of the shank that Ryobi didn't allow enough room for the standard sized T-shank blades to fit properly. After I ground the top of the T down on the Bosch blade, it fit and locked in fine. HD could at least carry the Ryobi blades in the store since Ryobi messed up on this tool. Read Less

Answer: 
The saw requires an 18v battery (I strongly suggest the 18v lithium+ for best performance), and if you don't already have a Ryobi charger, you'll need one, too. The bare jigsaw (P523) is just under $60, but for an extra $100 you can get two batteries, a charger, a VSR drill, and a hammer drill, too (P898-P523). I own all three (and more) and have think they're great!

Understand that this saw uses the T shank blades. However, not all T shank blades work - example, the Bosch blades have a wider T and will not lock into the saw. Other than Ryobi, which brands of blades will work in this saw without having to modify the T shank?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jig saw Wanted the drywall saw but they didn't have it so i got this was on Mt list anyways! Love the speed control and the light! Perfect cuts every time! if you have the batteries buy this cordless for life! June 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Ignore the complaints about Bosch blades not fitting correctly. They do need a little persuasion with a brand new, tight chuck but once seated, work fine. I ran this saw almost continuously for 2 hours, only stopped to let battery recharge. (I never continue once battery hits 1 bar. I let it cool then recharge.) I got this sucker hot! My garage is a bit steamy in the Florida summer. Cut 8 large holes in pressure treated 3/4" plywood. It worked like a charm. I also trimmed some stuff as well. Battery life rivals brushless competitors. (I only run a 4 Ah battery.) This is a fantastic bargain at $59.00! Far more versatile with no cord to worry about. I shot the first blade across the room until I figured out how to seat it properly. But it worked perfectly after that. A great value. August 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice jigsaw...Great customer service!!! I initially wrote a 2 star review and was contacted by customer service because I complained about the battery life for the jigsaw. So their customer service rep asked a few questions for more info, and to shorten the rest of the story, sent me a super capacity lithium to make up for it! Woohoo!! That's the only real caveat, you really should have one of the bigger capacity batteries. It cuts good, has lots of adjustments for speed and blade movement. Once I had one of those It is heavier than a corded saw, but that's to be expected, right? There's always a trade-off. The blade changes are tool-less, just make sure you have the T shank blades. Despite what some have written, the Bosch blades do work very well. Maybe they didn't buy T shank ones? I don't know. I am very invested in the Ryobi system, (7 tools currently) and will likely become much more invested as time goes on. August 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 18 volt jig saw Little heavy, but convenience of no cord more than makes up for that. Only used it a couple of times so far, but really like it so far. August 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Useless for me The blade in my older style Ryobi 18v jigsaw would twist to the right so I couldn't use it with a fence for long straight cuts on aluminum sheet metal. Since the current model has a different style blade clamp. I thought I would try it out. I got it home, chucked up a Bosch 36 TPI blade, and it was almost as twisted as the saw I have now. I packed it and the blades I also bought and immediately returned them for a refund. Why on earth can't Ryobi make a jigsaw that will hold a blade straight? I own quite a few 18v Ryobi 18v tools, some of them as much as 15 years old or more and have been extremely happy with them—they are all still going strong—but there is no way I'm going to buy another Ryobi jigsaw! July 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by One+ Products I really like the OnePlus product. What I don't like is not be able to buy replace saw blade at the store. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by much better than the old blue version I finally had enough with my old blue version on the Ryobi Cordless jigsaw. The old version's blade would eventually turn slightly so that for me to cut a straight line the jigsaw would have to be held at an angle. I have a lot of Ryobi cordless tool and the old, blue, jigsaw was my least favorite tool. This new Yellow version is much, much better and worth the price. Some reviewers have commented on the standard blades from other manufactures not fitting. You have to make sure it seats properly or the blade will pop out. It happened to me on a Dewalt jigsaw blade. I put it in a again and it held and made great cuts. I also like the new Blade saver feature which allows you to raise the saw base further away from the bottom of the saw allowing you to use a different part of the blade which may be worn out. I gave it 4 stars, not the 5 due to the blade lock issue. Other than that I am happy with my purchase. July 15, 2016
