Looking for an impact drill but came across this which might help you guys finding a present?
Better drill for me as i have alot of drills/ power tools and saws and when the battery goes i have to either buy a new spare battery so i can keep the day going or wait a couple of hours till the one i have is charged. With Ryobi all battery's fit all Whoot!!

Plus the battery alone is £40

Any way happy hunting and merry Christmas.....

I've had mine for about 2 years and my batteries are fine (I got the kit with 2 1.5Ah batteries when it was on sale and B&Q had a £20 voucher to spend instore)

The charger that comes with this will charge 18V Ryobi li-ion and Ryobi Ni-Cad batteries.

The Ryobi super-charger is needed to charge the 18V 4 amp hour batteries if you decide to buy those seperately

This is called built-in obsolescence.. It seems to be all the batteries are guarantee dead after 2 years... Things are not built to last, but to die so that you have to part with your money again!
#5
Good spot - been thinking about getting another one.
#6
I have got this drill and it's a cracking little drill for the home DIY type person. Doesn't matter how long I leave it idle in the garage it always seems to have enough charge for the odd jobs I need to do.
Batteries are still fine with mine and had it over a year and a half.
Good price spot op.
#7
I have this drill, excellent for round the house jobs, no complaints good price.
#8
Been posted before and been this price for ages... Mainly because it is unavailable for home delivery or click and collect - so if your store has it then great - but most stores do not even stock it and those that had it these are long gone.

It's Christmas..... use your legs and go shopping then. I'm an avide online shopper but if it means just popping instore while your out for bread or milk jobs a gooden.

Low stock near me (Scunthorpe/Hull)

It's not a new thing: All humans are built with obsolescence built in.

Lithium Ion batteries don't last very well, a couple of years is the average lifespan. It's the nature of them.
You can increase their longevity by storing them at a 40-50% charge and keeping them in a cool place (in a zip locked bag in the fridge for example). However I doubt anyone does this as it's inconvenient and negates the benefits of Li-ion batteries.

There was stock in Newport and Cardiff, the floor stock might be gone but ask a member of staff to go get you one, can always check the stock online anyway..
#18
Er you must have had a duff batery (or the nicad ones) these are Li-ion and one of mine is 3 years old now !
These have been best drills / drivers / planers / saws for me ever.
Yes they are a garish colour but heaps better than overpriced Makita or so called pro ranges from dewalt or other overpriced premium brands.

My combi drill (previous generation in slight less garish colours) is about 4 years old and takes a lot of abuse on an almost weekly basis.

Can't recomend Ryobi enough tbh
#19
I recommend ryobi to anybody who wants a diy drill. They are miles better than black and decker and are even as well built as the cheap Makitas. I actually own a similar model to this which I bought from b&q priced for £80. I've had it 12 months and it's never put a foot wrong.
#20
Bought one last time they were 50, plenty of use and still going strong. Excellent gift for someone
#21
I see this when buying a new drill the other day, I ended up buying the bosch psr 18 instead comes with 2 x batteries. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bosch-Cordless-Drill-Driver-Batteries/dp/B001DSQX0E

Can confirm plenty of these ryobis in b and q grimsby.
#22
Have got this one. Mind you I paid £20 for it back in the summer. Good for diy I.e. Cost/effectiveness.

Got a dealt Walt one too which is good for harder/longer diy jobs and will ad a better all round drill as my hand tends to get a bit sore with the Roybi. Don't get me wrong is a decent drill but if you could it cheaper...would be a bonus.

Heat for the find plus Roybi do the one battery fits all which is pretty good of them. After Xmas I have look to get one of there other power tools to get the collection going :)

Its what got me interested as the one battery fits all comes in hand when you have a collection going out in the bin 3yrs+ because the batteries are mental least i get another battery free when i buy another Roybi
#24
Thanks OP. Just picked one up today in store (they had them at the front, but I went to the usual area thinking they'd be there). Have to say, on a lot of occasions I find my local (Reading) B&Q staff are not always the most helpful. When I asked where these drills were because I could see they were in stock online, they just said the online price is different...not that they are actually at the front of the store!

You don't need a new charger, I bought a 3mah battery for £44 delivered the standard are 1.5mah and it uses the existing charger, the battery's on these the 1.5 mah at least are rubbish,ive gone through two this year..
#27

Think the idea with this one is that the battery or replacement xl battery's fit there entire range, so if you are on a buying spree for power tools then these are the one stop shop. unlike your choice where the extra battery is good but it's just for that drill.

Have had my Ryobi drill and Ryobi Li-ion batteries for 4 years and still going strong. Whats this nonsense about lasting only 2 years. Read other peoples posts here too and dont be put off. Excellent piece of kit.

Can also use the batteries on the worx drill for other worx tools

The charger probably failed because of the duff battery? This has happened to me in the past, I assumed it was because a couple of cells had gone short & draw too much current? especially if it is a basic charger?

do you have any reputable sources/evidence backed research to back this up?
bear in mind, from what i've read, lithium ion batteries don't like being left unused for long periods of time, they are designed (as far as i'm aware) for daily use.
if these are getting used daily(ie contactor use) and last 2 years, i think that is very good value for money

Added heat by mistake... the Aldi Workzone deal from a week or so ago was better

we ive done two batterys in two years, charged regular aswell, I work as a housing maintinence worker for the council battery are rubbish if you compare them to mikita, that's what most of the tradesmen I work with use,..i wont buy Ryobi again, but will continue to use them until my stuff is no longer usable, drill, circular saw and torch..
#34
Just for all of you concerned about the batteries I have had some fail, one after 13 months with little use which Ryobi replaced without question (24 months warranty) but I still have one from 2009. Yes 2009 in case you though I had spelt it wrong. The 2009 battery is as good as my December 2012 battery. In my last job I was using 2 of these which are both my own and they never missed a beat, screwing no. 12 screws in every day. The only issue with the drills are the keyless chucks could be better and can come loose on their own so be careful if you carry them pointing down !!

Great drill for the money. I bought one of these last year to go with my combi drill which came with the super charger. It pays to have two sometimes.

Not a bad price for a lithium ion drill, but I don't get all the fuss about this one battery system. All my DeWalt tools use the same batteries, same on nearly every brand of power tools these days. Just doesn't strike me as a killer feature.
#36
I'd recommend the Black & Decker one at £50 over and above this. Feels a lot better made.

Ryobi of old was pretty good but the new bright green stuff is certainly at the budget end of the market.

Is it the old non-green Ryobi stuff? If so, it's better than the latest green coloured tools.
#38
I can't find one of these anywhere. :o(
Are they still available? How do you get them? I scanned one in my local B&Q last night and it came up at full price £67 or £70.
