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!

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?

Except for my tractors and walk behind mowers, I have changed all outside equipment to the RYOBI 40 volt system to handle all my acreage needs. This includes: Chainsaw, and extendit chain limb saw, hedge trimmer, garden rototiller, edger, 3 blowers, 5 Heavy duty trimmers and push mower. I use both the 2.6 amp, 4.0 amp and 5 amp batteries, After trial and error, you will learn which batteries is best for which tool. Such as I use the 5 amp in the chainsaw, the 4 amp in the push mower and 2.6 in most everything else unless I deem it might prove a a harder job and then shift to a higher amp battery. I keep all batteries fully charged, and over 3 years, I have had only two batteries fail. If your battteries just quit and only show a red-green on the charger then they may be permanently bad. There are though some sites that inform on how to refurb the battery, but the tasks look hazardous. I have found the 2.6 Ah battery to be the most switchable and dependable. Hope thisa helps.

40-Volt Lithium-Ion 2.6Ah Battery is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 1351.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good battery with lots of power. This battery came with the cordless string trimmer (straight shaft with no edging tool) and I have been very impressed with Iran performance and Ryobi’s is timer service. The battery lasts a very long time on this tool and I am able to trim around my house and yard as well as use it on my blower to clear my driveway on a single charge. It died on me after about 4 months but Ryobi replaced it under warranty no problem. The only thing I do not like about the 40V system is the length of time it takes to charge the batteries. Mine takes between 2-3 hours to charge which would end up being inconvenient if I needed to use it again quickly to finish a job. Other than that, I love it and love all my Ryobi products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing technology What a great pleasure it is to us outdoor tools that have all the power they need without having to fuss with gasoline, without having to smell and breathe fumes, and to work in relative quiet and peacefulness! As the technology improves, I will never again purchase a gasoline powered tool unless there is absolutely no alternative. Ryobi is by far the leader in bringing these advantages into the realm of the average homeowner and I am happy to pay what i consider to be very reasonable prices. I have had a problem with a 2 year old string trimmer which is at the repair shop now. I expect a resolution and I do wait patiently. While waiting, I did not hesitate in buying a newer model trimmer with more improvements. My mower has performed flawlessly for more than 2 years without fail. I recommend these products to anyone and believe they will love the advantages of using electric power and will consider using gasoline power again only as a last resort.

I bought a 40v Ryobi Blower and string trimmer because I got tired of the hassle of 2 cycle engines. When these things work they are amazing. They are quiet and powerful. The problem with these are that the batteries are trash. I have had 4 of these batteries and 3 of the 4 have died, either during warranty or shortly after. The low quality of the Ryobi battery isn't limited to just the 40v battery. I have had several of the 18v batteries die prematurely also. I use cordless products at work, and have never had one fail, so I don't believe it is business as usual with cordless tools. Ryobi makes inferior products and I have bought several and won't be buying anymore. The tools are fine but the batteries are time bombs.

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.

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.

Great battery, provides almost gas power performance in a cord free electric tool. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the first one received had a faulty status level gauge, pushing the button didn't show any lights but was fully charged. Returned to store for exchange, even though I bought it on line. New one works fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from its fine It works just fine! Will work for you as long as your not expecting it to last forever. I use it with my chainsaw, and it will work for bits and bites clearing the small trees away from my truck. Works for the small jobs I carry the charger to keep it top off.
