If you happen to be the proud owner of (or you’re considering to buy) any Ryobi Tools that are part of the Ryobi 18V ONE+ Tools Collection, then the Ryobi P166 ONE+ Battery Starter Kit is exactly what you need to power up those tools. With this dual battery and fast charger kit, you can power up your Ryobi 18V ONE+ Tools for a ton of hours.
Just over a year ago, Ryobi Tools released its Ryobi ONE+ Tools Collection (during June 2018), the world’s largest 18V Home Maintenance Tools System. The main feature that this entire collection has to offer is that all of its tools have the same battery compatibility.
That’s right, all the tools from this collection are compatible with all of Ryobi’s removable, portable, rechargeable 18V ONE+ batteries. This means that whenever you get a battery down to 0% on whatever ONE+ tool you’re using, all you have to do is get a battery from a different ONE+ tool, and worry about recharging both of your batteries later.
The Ryobi Tools brand in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand is owned by Techtronic Industries of Hong Kong, an original equipment manufacturer for brands such as Craftsman, Milwaukee, AEG (AEG Powertools, licensed from Electrolux), Ryobi, Homelite, Hoover US, Dirt Devil, and Vax.
By using the Ryobi P166 ONE+ Battery Starter Kit, you can charge any tools that are part of the Ryobi ONE+ Tools Collection. This includes the Ryobi P3330 18V ONE+ Hybrid Surface Dryer, the Ryobi P747 18V ONE+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator, the Ryobi P590 18V ONE+ Portable Band Saw, and the Ryobi P3340 18V ONE+ Hybrid Air Cannon.
Let’s take a look at the Ryobi P166 ONE+ Battery Starter Kit, and check everything it has included as well as what it can offer you.
DESIGN & SPECS
The Ryobi P166 ONE+ is a Battery Starter Kit for anyone that’s looking to start or expand their s Ryobi ONE+ Tools Collection. The kit comes with a Ryobi P118B Compact Fast Charger and two included Ryobi P191 18V ONE+ 3.0Ah Batteries.
The Two Batteries – x2 P191 18V ONE+ 3.0Ah Batteries
The two included Ryobi P191 18V ONE+ Batteries are lightweight LITHIUM+ HP rechargeable batteries – their extremely light weight helps to reduce user fatigue. The batteries are also designed with a durable constructed frame for impact protection, which means that if you accidentally knock them over and/or drop them from a short height, they should be fine – something like knocking them from a table or having one battery accidentally slip from your hands.
The batteries easily snap into place, no matter what Ryobi 18V ONE+ Tool you use them with, and also come equipped with quick-release easy-access latches that let you easily detach them from the tool you have them installed on.
Each lightweight battery comes with a built-in 4-bar illuminated charge indicator that makes it easier for you to check how much power it has left.
Both batteries feature advanced electronics that allow you to maximize the run time of any 18V ONE+ tool. These premium battery cells also feature an enhanced high power terminal design, offering improved power and battery life, which basically translates to up to 2x the runtime of older models, like the Ryobi P102 18V ONE+ Lithium-Ion 1.3 Ah Compact Battery.
With superior runtime, power, and performance, these batteries can take on more demanding applications than ever before with the introduction of HP Technology. This technology lets the batteries communicate with brushless tools to maximize performance in all applications, allowing users to make faster cuts, drive larger screws, utilize bigger drill bits, and much, much more.
Compact Fast Charger – Ryobi P118B Charger
The included charger is a Ryobi P118B Charger, which was designed with portability in mind, featuring a very compact size.
The charger comes equipped with indicator lights that show the batteries’ charging status while you’re using it to recharge your portable batteries.
The Ryobi P118B Compact Fast Charger can charge the two included P191 ONE+ batteries in as little as 1 hour.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
Inside their package users will find: one Portable Tool Bag (to store your compact charger and both batteries), one Ryobi P118B Compact Fast Charger, two included P191 18V ONE+ 3.0Ah Li-Ion Batteries, and an Operator’s Manual.
As stated before, the two included P191 18V ONE+ 3.0Ah Li-Ion Batteries are compatible/can be used with all tools that are part of Ryobi ONE+ Tools Collection (over 125 different tools).
Since each of those tools is compatible with any 18V ONE+ Battery, you can focus on acquiring each and every product that’s part of the collection slowly, and at different times. This way you can slowly get a ton of different tools that are all compatible with Ryobi’s removable, portable, rechargeable 18V ONE+ batteries, which can all be used for some easy house maintenance.
You can also use multiple batteries for a single Ryobi 18V ONE+ tool throughout your “house work day”, recharge them all when you’re done and never worry about which battery goes into what tool. The fact that all Ryobi ONE+ tools are compatible with all 18V ONE+ batteries is probably the best feature of the entire collection – 100% battery compatibility, ease-of-use, and quick and fast house maintenance. That’s just awesome!
The Ryobi P166 ONE+ Battery Starter Kit is exactly what you need if you’re looking to start and/or expand your Ryobi 18V ONE+ Tools Collection.
The batteries can be charged in as little as 1 hour and each battery can provide your Ryobi ONE+ Tools with additional hours of battery life. Not only that, but the batteries also allow you to disconnect your Ryobi ONE+ Tools from their power cable and use them as portable home maintenance tools.
Having one/multiple Ryobi 18V ONE+ Battery(ies) means that you can focus more on your home maintenance work and worry less about running out of cable length to power up your tools.
