Rated 5 out of 5Â by NightWolf Excellent Charger
Since this charger is a spare (I also own the Ryobi 6 battery charger/maintainer) I keep this one in our travel trailer for use when camping. It'll charge both Ni-Cad & Li-Ion batteries and does the job quickly. If you only have a cpl batteries this is a good unit; if you have 4 or more batteries (I have 7 Li-Ion & 2 Ni-Cad), then buy the 6 unit charger/maintainer

This charger has been good so far. It charges a lithium battery (smaller version) in about 30 minutes and a NiCad in about 45 minutes. Lots of built-in protection for the batteries (i.e. battery is too hot or cold).
Only complaint is that Ryobi should include this charger in all of their lithium tool kits, instead of the cheap version (black, 10 + hour charger)

Rated 1 out of 5Â by chris1 disappointed in durability
The charger worked as expected for about 2 years and then suddenly would not charge batteries at all - in fact it started to indicate that all the batteries were themselves defective!! Of course, in order to use the batteries I had to replace the unit, the new one hopefully will last longer.
I would have thought that the the charger would have lasted longer than this given how essential it is to the effectiveness of the tools.

Recently I have purchased a set of Ryobi cordless tools using One+ Nickel-Cadmium batteries. While very satisfied with quality and performance of the tools, I was very disappointed with the basic charging unit that was bundled with the set. It took too long to charge the batteries and not to mention very limited battery status indication. Therefore, I have decided to purchase P113 dual chemistry charger for One + type batteries keeping in mind that eventually I may switch to Lithium Ion batteries. Two days after placing the order, I was pleasantly surprised to have the charger delivered to my doorstep. The charger dimensions are bigger than I was expected, however it is very light and straightforward to use. On, off, or flashing state of red and green light pair is used indicate battery health and charging progress. It takes less than 45 minutes to charge a fairly well discharged battery. In short, I am very satisfied with this unit, and I would recommend it to anyone with One+ battery based tools.

This One+ 18-Volt 1-Hour Battery Charge worked so well that I asked for the six battery charger for Christmas. A must have if you use a lot of Ryobi tools like I do is the 4X battery, it holds a charge 4X longer and is 20% lighter weight than Ni-Cd batteries. I can cut thru a 8 " log with my Ryobi chain saw and it still has power to go, and the added power it gives the tools is great, more power is better.
