Hi Florin, Thanks for your question on the RYOBI 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Rapid Charger OP406A. When the red and the green LED's are flashing that is usually a sign of an error on the battery pack or charger. Try to repeat the conditions a second time by removing and reinstalling the battery pack. If the LED status repeats a second time, try charging a different battery. If a different battery charges normally, dispose of the pack that received the Error (see your battery pack manual for instructions). If a different battery also indicates Error, the charger should be replaced. Thanks for asking! - Eve

Asked by Ady July 28, 2020

Answers

While it is possible to power this RYOBI battery charger with an inverter, a cigarette lighter receptacle will not power an inverter large enough to supply the RYOBI battery charger. Most cigarette lighter receptacles are protected by a 15-amp fuse, very few will be protected by a 20-amp fuse. Even with the engine running, the alternator producing 14 volts, and a 20-amp fuse, it will only supply (14V x 20A) = 280 watts. Most inverters are only 90-percent efficient. The Ryobi battery charger has an input rating of 295 watts. The maximum current draw of an inverter will be approximately 325 watts and would melt a 20-amp fuse and melt a 15-amp fuse much faster. It would be best to connect the inverter directly to the battery or install a 30-amp circuit for the inverter. If using an inverter, I recommend using a true-sinewave inverter over a modified square wave inverter, as the charger could operate warmer or potentially overheat on choppy square wave power. The car battery will not be damaged by an inverter. Most inverters shut down at 10.5 volts, before battery damage can occur. However, the battery may not be able to start the engine if discharged to 10.5 volts. And the battery should be fully recharged as soon as possible. However, if running the engine, most car alternators will supply the inverter and not drain the car battery.

Re-asking if its ok to leave a charged battery on the charger? If not, how long can it safely stay on a charger between uses?

Asked by Shiloh June 21, 2020

This will not damage your battery or charger. Especially if you are using it a couple of times per month, then it will definitely not damage it. What you would need to do in order to get the most amount of life out of your batteries, will be the same as any other Lithium Ion battery. Off the top of my head: If you are not going to use the battery for several months, the battery might last slightly longer if you store it off the charger which will let it naturally self-discharge a small bit and rest in that partially discharged state. To get optimal battery life, the Ryobi booklet prescribed a regiment of storing it half-charged and periodically charging it and then discharging it to half-charge. This seems like more work than anyone is actually going to do.

The RYOBI Rapid Charger has an input rating of 295 watts. At the bare minimum I recommend using a true sinewave inverter of at least 400 watts. I never like operating anything near its peek limit.

Does this charger have boost capability to charge a battery that has gone into "sleep mode"?

Asked by Mishka May 20, 2020
5
Answers

The RYOBI Operator’s Manual does not list a boost mode or the ability to recover damaged batteries. The RYOBI battery will stop operating at a safe discharge level. If recharged soon after the battery has been discharged it should not go to sleep or in a dead state where it cannot be recharged. The RYOBI charger will attempt to condition a deeply discharged battery to a high enough voltage to be recharged. If the charger fails to condition a deeply discharged battery after two attempts, the battery may have reached end of life. This type of damage usually only occurs when an exhausted battery is placed on the shelf or left in the tool in a discharged state and further self-discharges over time. If even one cell as gone into protection mode due to deep discharge, the battery may have to opened to potentially recover a cell that was disabled for safety reasons as applying high currents and voltages to a Lithium battery can have disastrous results.

Can the battery remain on this charger after the battery is fully charged, unlike the standard charger?

Asked by Dan May 6, 2020

Yes and it automatically goes to sleep after a period of inactivity.

This rapid charger is a very helpful addition to our Ryobi tool set. Using a Ryobi 4Ah 40V battery that is completely out of charge, it takes less than one hour to fully charge the battery with the rapid charger, and it takes less than three hours to fully charge the battery with the regular charger. Since this rapid charger reduces the time required to fully charge a battery to about one-third the time required using the regular charger, one can get much more done.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
As the owner of multiple Ryobi One Plus tools that use the 18 volt rechargeable batteries, I am always on the lookout for speeding up the charging time that is required after they become fully discharged. I am still waiting but the technology for rapidly charging their 40 volt batteries is here! The rapid charger has consistently fully charged in an hour or less. This is especially handy as some of the 40 volt tools use up the battery very quickly as in my new chainsaw.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The RYOBI 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Rapid Charger Model # OP406A is a new addition to the already popular RYOBI Brand. Charge time varies depending on the amp hour capacity of the battery pack. Batteries are sold separately and all RYOBI 40-Volt batteries are compatible with this charger. My battery is a 4 AH and with that battery almost fully depleted it took nearly an hour to fully charge. The battery gets warm during charging and that’s normal. There is a cooling fan incorporated in this charger and you’ll hear it running during the charging cycle. Be sure to keep the cooling vents on both sides of the charger clear during charging. RYOBI supports this product with a 3 Year Limited Warranty.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Ryobi products are well built and I have been fortunate to have had other tools from them in the past. With my battery chain saw I knew Ryobi would not disappoint. And their rapid charger was equally well built and did it’s job flawlessly. The battery with the chainsaw was partially charged, but I slid it onto the charger for less than an hour and I was good to go with cutting limbs off of three of my trees. Power never ran out, but nice to know I could quickly recharge if necessary. Charger comes with a limited three year warranty. Clear LED lights display the charge status. Even has keyhole hangers built into bottom should you need to hang on a wall or pegboard.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The RYOBI Brand, 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Rapid Charger significantly reduces Ryobi high capacity lithium ion battery recharge times, recharging up to four times faster over Ryobi wall wart chargers. A Ryobi 40V, 4-amp battery can take up to one hour to recharge for each 25-percent increment, requiring as long a 4-hours to completely recharge a discharged battery. This Ryobi rapid charger can increase battery charge level by 25-percent in as little as 15-minutes for 40 volt, 4-amp battery, completely recharging a discharged battery in as little as one hour or less depending the battery’s discharge level. One rapid charger and two Ryobi high capacity batteries should allow virtually continuous use of Ryobi battery powered tools as one battery can be recharged while a second battery is in use. The Ryobi fast charger incorporates an internal cooling fan and is fully automatic in operation for any battery condition that might be encountered.

This charger was tossed in with the cordless chainsaw I got from the Seeds program. Thanks, Ryobi !!! The chainsaw came with its own little charger that would have taken quite a while to do the honking big 4-amp battery of the chainsaw. The quick charger made short work of it. Has a cooling fan for itself but not the battery, but that doesn't seem to be an issue, the battery sheds heat well enough by itself. The limitation of the regular charger is its power supply. This is definitely a useful accessory for tools that use the bigger batteries.

Fast Charger
This charger really makes a difference in the speed that a battery charges. The small "clip it to the battery" charger takes a lot longer to bring a flat battery up to full charge than this one. If you are using a Ryobi product like a chainsaw that rapidly depletes the battery charge this charger will make a big difference in how fast you can go back to work. It has fan cooling and checks the battery for high or low temperature.

Works as promised. It makes a whirring noise (my other chargers are silent) but that is probably because it is a rapid charger.
