Rated 1 out of 5Â by steab RYOBI 18V Lithium Drill Kit
Great product for a novice DIY person like me......let down massively by the battery/charger unit.
Using the drill and it died on me.....so i took the battery off, fixed it to the charger, plugged the charger in and nothing.
This would of been it's third charge in the 12 months I've owned it!!!
I'm awaiting feedback from Ryobi themselves as I lost my receipt when I moved house.
I feel loathed to spend more money buying a new battery or charger, due to the lack of reliability of this one.
Buy at your peril

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Katodog Excellent product as usual from Ryobi
I've used Ryobi tools for a long time, some of my oldest are around 12 years old and still work perfectly. These new tools, the "green" versions, are everything I'd expect from Ryobi...great build, great quality, run like champs. I'm a maintenance mechanic, been one for 28 years, and I've used Ryobi tools for some heavy-duty stuff and they never give me any hassle, always work great. Ryobi can't be beat for what they offer and the prices they have. This particular drill, works just like any of my other Ryobi tools...perfectly. I use it every day, the Lithium batteries are great, hold a charge for a long time, never lose power (until they die), and charge within a decent time. Definitely cannot go wrong with Ryobi tools. It's a great drill, lighter and smaller than the "blue" drills, easy to work with and a joy to own. I also like that the new chargers will work with the old NiCad batteries, seems to give them a little bit extra power and duration

This is a great all around the house tool. Very fit for your low to medium duty DIY projects. The level and magnetic tray are a nice touch.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by hambone Great value very smooth running motor.
Actually bought this drill because I needed the batteries and charger. The sales person pointed me to this because it was cheaper to by the drill set than it would have been to buy the batteries and charger separately. When I started to use the drill, I found it to be much smoother and easier than the old RYOBI. I am very impressed with this set. Purchased two more to give as presents.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by countryboy pleasant surprise
I bought this drill when the batteries on my ni-cad drill died. It stated in the brochure that any 18v+one battery would work on any 18v+one tool, and that would mean that I wouldn't have to trash the other 4 ryobi tools that I have plus I gained another drill with a 1/2 inch chuck. The lithium batteries indeed worked on my other tools, but the biggest surprise was yet to come. My old batteries were still in a trash bucket in my shop where they had been for over 6 months. I took them out and put them on the new charger, and believe it or not the new charger charged them. I'm a happy camper.
