Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by twinsdaddy must-have Tek4 accessory
I'm a Service Tech with several Tek4 tools. I bought the rapid charger/battery combo last month because it seemed like a good deal. I didn't think I needed the quick charging capability since most of my Tek4 tools have great run time. However, I now carry it with me on all my service calls. I can use it as a battery gauge to quickly check my extra battery's charge level and if a battery goes dead in the field I can easily charge it in 30 minutes or less. My only complaints are that it is a bit bulky and I wish it came with a cigarette lighter plug. Definitely highly recommended for anyone that depends on their Tek4 tools regularly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToolboyNC You need a TEK4 Rapid Charger!
I was so happy with my first one of these that I purchased another just to keep in the truck. With a 36-minute charge time I never have to worry about dead batteries. And with one charger in the truck I can fully charge TWO batteries at once on my way to work!
This tool should be sold with a cigarette lighter adapter; I use the fast charger in my truck more often than the one in my home. Luckily the DC adapter to this charger is the same as to my ultra-fast AA/AAA charger, so I don't need to keep two cords in the truck.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nevets64 NOT AS DESCRIBED
Solar Panel : NONE
Hand Crank : NONE
Car Charger : NONE
It comes with a USB cable and a Wall Charger. The 2 cables plug into the bottom so you either have to hang it or lay it down. Seemed like a nice charger till getting it home.
Takes 5 hour to charge normally, so how long is a 30 minute charge actually going to last. Going to return ASAP.
Do what I did, bought a second battery. If battery isn't dead in 2 days I recharge it..

This is the most versatile Ryobi Tek4 charger available. This charger allows charging your Tek4 battery either with 110v or any USB PORT. Your cars USB charger can be used to charge your Ryobi batteries. The other real advantage is you can use this charger to keep your car's computer live during a battery swap or even to use your phone when it's battery dies. A real multi-Tasker they don't list in the manual!

just the charger I've been looking for! it has dual voltage 110 & 240 volts which means I can use it anywhere! especially in Asian countries which has mostly 240 volts. its really a fast charger and it comes with a usb cable which you can use also for charging the tek 4 batteries

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobifan A must buy!!!
If you buy any 4 tek tools this is a must.while most of the 4tek tools charge last along time, it is nice to charge in a half an hour instead of 5 hours. If you have the screw driver, this is a much needed purchase.
A side note; it would be nice for ryobi to develop a 4tek impact driver.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by morris771 Great Product!
I have used this charger several times now and absolutely love it. It is super fast at recharging the batteries. I also purchased a device that holds these batteries and allows me to connect several different devices to it for charging. Just awesome!
