How long does a Ryobi battery take to charge?

There is no quick or easy answer to this question. How long it takes to charge a Ryobi 18v lithium battery will depend on a variety of factors. For instance, the type of charger you have, plus the type and power of your battery. If you’re looking for an all-in-one charging solution, you may be interested in the fastest charger to be released by Ryobi to date – the Ryobi Rc18150 18v ONE+ Cordless 5.0a battery charger. It charges at a rate of 5.0Ah per hour, meaning you can charge their high capacity 5.0Ah batteries in just 60 minutes. This charger is compatible with all Ryobi ONE+ 18V lithium batteries – so whichever you choose, it’ll be charged quickly and efficiently.

Which Ryobi Battery to buy?

If you’re keen to try the Ryobi ONE+ range for the first time, or you’re looking for the best Ryobi battery replacement for your current tools, you’re probably wondering which Ryobi battery to buy. There’s a huge variety to choose from across the range, so it can be tricky to know which one will work best for you and the tasks you’ll be doing. That’s why we’ve put together this handy guide to explain each Ryobi ONE+ battery, including their average charge time and which tools/tasks they are suited to.

Firstly, though, it’s important to understand the Ah metric that’s used to show how long each Ryobi ONE+ battery will last for. Ah stands for ‘ampere hour’ and is a unit of electric charge. Essentially, the Ah tells you how long the battery will last without charging – the larger the number, the longer run time you can expect. For instance, the main difference between 1.5 Ah and 2.0 Ah batteries is the 2.0 will be able to power tools for slightly longer than the 1.5 model.

Here, we look at some of the Ryobi ONE+ batteries we have for sale in order of their Ah metric.
