Questions & Answers

What is the expected life expectancy for this battery? How many cycles and / or years will the battery last before it should be replaced?

Asked by: SpareKey
I have had all 3 of my 2.6Ah batteries die before the end of the 3 year warranty. All lasted 18 to 24 months. Home Depot provided Ryobi numbers to call to get a replacement battery. I have had all 3 original batteries replaced. Ryobi was pretty good about this. As asked by others, Ryobi charged me nothing for the shipment. They did want the number off the battery and the number off the tool it was sold with. You must ensure you keep good records to ensure the right battery is with the right tool. They suggest not leaving the battery in the charger. Over winter charge the battery once per month and do not leave the battery in a cold shed or garage. When using, drain before charging. These steps may extend the battery life.

This year I purchased a Ryobi 40 volt weed wacker, blower, and hedge trimmer from home depot. The purchases were made over a few months time frame with the last purchase in June of 2017. The newest battery which part number 40261 won't take a charge or light up. The two older batteries part number 40261 are still going strong. What is going on with Ryobi? It used to be a well respected name but now all I hear are Chinese junk complaints. I don't plan to pay another $99 for a battery to replace one with maybe 6 charges on it and less than 6 months old. Do you sell a good quality tool to replace this junk!
Asked by: armynavyman
The battery became discharged too far, and they won't take a charge after that. Some people say plugging the charging in and out quickly when you begin to charge it can sometimes bring it back to life. You Tube has some videos explaining the procedure.

Two batteries failed in 3 months' time. What am I doing wrong? I bought a 40V Cordless String Trimmer. Charged the battery and used the trimmer a few times. When not using the trimmer, I keep the battery on the charger 24/7 in my basement at 70 degrees. 3 weeks later, the charger light says green, the battery light indicators don't light, and the battery only operates for 2 seconds before dying. So I get a 2nd one. Same deal. 5 weeks into it, with the battery on the charger for days and weeks at a time (I don't have to trim very often), the battery is dead again. Foolishly, I returned it and am now on my third unit. Is there a special way to maintain the battery?

Not you it’s the battery. Mine failed after about 20 uses. Shameful in a $100 battery

40-Volt Lithium-Ion 2.6Ah Battery is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 1478.

I own one of these 2.6AH batteries (Ryobi's newest version--the ones with the amp hour rating printed on the side, as pictured here), as well as several of Ryobi's older 2.6AH batteries. I've had these batteries for several years (some for as long as 4 years), and like the experiences reported in some of the older reviews, I've had issues with the older version of these batteries (which Homedepot quickly & painlessly replaced). I've also got the 3.0AH & 5.0AH versions of these new Ryobi batteries. As of yet, I've had nothing but good experiences with the newest version of these batteries--none have failed, and all have exhibited run times expected for the tools involved, and I own just about every 40V tool Ryobi makes. I guess Ryobi heard the complaints and did some redesigning (or quality control improvements, or perhaps both) for the newest batteries that improved their overall performance. As I said, so far I'm very happy with them, and I've been using them for a while.

Trimmer is great, but the batteries just don't last long. You might get a year out of them tops. At $100 for the regular and $140 each for the extended, they get cost prohibitive very fast. I got two a year old in the garage now I can't use and no way to fix them. There are differing stories on the internet and how to work with them. Watch what you believe and don't believe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid this platform. Batteries will not last. The batteries simply do last a good long time. I only recharge perhaps 20-30 times in a year and after 3 years the battery is already failing. The second battery bought new at the store was bad right from the start. And now the third one I bought maybe 2 years ago is failing. Oddly enough, they are all failing with a similar symptom: they simply shut down even though the charge LED shows 2 out of 4 (i.e. battery should still have half the charge left). Realize that you will likely need more than one battery if you have even a "normal" size lot (which is Texas is about 1/3 acre for house and yard). Battery new price was originally $130 and later fell to $100. Now it is back to $130. Given the rate that these batteries fail, this platform simply is not worth it due to the exorbitant pricing on a inferior battery. If the battery had a decent lifespan and were reasonably priced, I can accept the under-powered, small footprint, limited cutting height mower. Alas, this does not appear to be the case. Time to switch to a different platform.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ryobi Cordless Lawnmowers and Batteries Two of these batteries came with my new Ryobi cordless electric lawnmower. Purchased it in August of 2015. It is now May 2019 and both batteries do not hold a charge. I get 10 to 15 minutes of cutting time per battery. The replacement cost of the batteries is $150. each. Robi tells me the batteries only last 3 years. If I replace them and get 3 years out of the new ones, it will cost me $100/year to cut my lawn. I'm now looking for a better name in cordless lawnmowers .

After owning/purchasing the entire Ryobi expand it line (string trimmer, blower, hedger, edger, pole saw) for 11 months I am on failed batteries #3 and 4. While Ryobi customer support is fantastic at honoring the warranty, like the first time I called support, the batteries are once again back ordered with no eta. This indicates to me that they have a high level of failures with the batteries and cannot keep up with the demand to replace failed products. One other thing to note is that the clamp for the electric powerhead that this battery is for broke after 4 months since it was a mostly plastic part. Ryobi would not replace this item so I purchased an all metal one on Amazon to replace it that is a substantially more durable item. Given my issues with the platform, I'm looking at replacing at lease the string trimmer and blower with Dewalt or Black and Decker. Unfortunately, it is summer in Florida and with all the rain, I can't wait an unspecified time to get replacement batteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely expensive for it to be necessary to replace this... Extremely expensive for it to be necessary to replace this battery every 3 years (or less). I had to weigh buying 2 entirely new pieces of equipment vs. a battery. Battery won, which I suppose Ryobi had already figured out. Guess I'll get another one so there will always be one ready to go. I do enjoy the equipment, without cords and without problematic gas engine issues. Please work on price reduction.

The warranty rep stated it is normal for rechargeable batteries to last only 3-5 years. But, I say, my rechargeable cordless phone and rechargeable toothbrush batteries have lasted over 10 years. And, with a gasoline powered engine, my stuff will last 15+ years. Ryobi does not stand behind it's product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't last two years and is costly to replace. I bought a battery operated lawn mower and thought that I could get past buying gas and paying money to run it. These batteries don't last for two years and are way more costly than buying gasoline​. I don't recommend getting a Ryobi lawn mower due to the high cost of batteries.
