Makita 18v battery adaptor for Ryobi one+ 18v cordless tools £19.99 prime / £24.48 non prime Amazon

Posted 13th Apr
All of my cordless power tools are based on Makita 18v LXT and I have several batteries and chargers. I was looking to purchase a decent cordless glue gun and the Ryobi seems to have good reviews. Rather than buy the full kit with battery and charger I have purchased the bare gun with this adaptor which works out cheaper and gives me the option to buy more Ryobi tools in the future. Reviews for the adaptor look ok so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.. Not a deal as such, but could be of interest to other Makita owners.

Same price for ages, what's the deal?


As ops comments say it’s not so much a deal but just informative
Never knew it existed! Opens up a few options

Or it is an advertisement of his own product.


Haha. If it was my own product I would have come up with a better name than ‘Badaptor’!

Is there one that works the opposite way that will let me use Makita tools with my Ryobi batteries?

The problem with going from ryobi to anything else is the sticky outty bit on ryobi would make any adapter really tall. I'm sure something could be 3d printed.

I converted a cheap hedgecutter to ryobi with a printed adapter.
I bought this a month or so ago but slightly cheaper. Wanted a Ryobi nailer as Makita were very expensive for my DIY. Have a load of 18v Makita batteries from the deals on here, and thought this was worth a go. So far so good. Works as described and doesn't seem to have affected battery life. I have set aside one Makita battery for use with it just incase anything should happen .
Thanks OP - I’ve seen these before on eBay but never sure as to quality. Ryobi have decent prices on pole trimmers Compared to Makita, Ryobi have cheaper nailers and garden tools such as pole saws are much better prices
Personally I’d prefer to just put the money towards a ryobi battery. Mines a 5ah and lasts forever. Can use it for nail gun, router and to inflate the tyres on my van before I have to recharge. If you already own a bunch of makita I see the appeal but still you wonder how good these things are and how they affect the makita battery and the tool itself with regards to longevity.
Great idea, as above makita nailers are over £300 vs £130 for Ryobi nailer. Hedge trimmer is about £200 for Makita vs £80 for the Ryobi. Gives you a lot more options.

How wise is this? Are all batteries the same? Do they not have PCB boards in them?
I’ve only just seen these myself yesterday. Looks a good option for some tools. Does anyone know if this would work in the ryobi radio
I watched the video last night of the new glue gun that works off Ryobi batteries. Seems a good product but very expensive for what it is. Same as this adaptor. £20 is too expensive
One for DeWalt/Milwaukee batteries to fit in the Ryobi. £15.48.

I still have Ryobi batteries dated 2008, 2010 and 2013. Used for trade use for a couple of years as well. Makita are not perfect either.

It would appear Makita batteries are quite a bit cheaper than Ryobi so the post could be useful for those who own Makita but fancy some of the Ryobi product line.

Symptomatic of what this site has become.
Not a deal.
I've been looking for something similar to use makita batteries on worx products, specifically the hydroshot. But I've been unable to find one. Does anyone know if one is available?
Could you have bought a 1.2A correct battery for same price as adapter?

I got one from ali express for worx battery to Makita tool, was nearly 30 quid, could've bought cheap battery and charger for similar, the tool was only a cheap chniese impact wrench...

plus charger!... plus better to keep all batts same, though don't always work...
Lol stick to the makita.
I didn't realise these type of adapters were available.
Just been on ebay to find a B&D > Ryobi one for abot £15

Thanks been looking at ryobi soldering iron/vac but have plenty of B&D batteries avail, might be worth a punt now.

Sounds a great idea, ideal for the mountain bike. Post it if you do find it

Just had a look at their website to see the tutorial on fitting the adaptor and it looks like you can buy them direct with free postage.
Yes I saw that a bit later. Looks like they do one for a DeWalt battery as well. I have too much Ryobi gear now to change but the Ryobi batteries are extremely expensive as are some of the tools. I was after an 18 volt circular saw and could have got a DeWalt for less. Same goes for an impact driver.
OP: Did you get this from Charlie DIYte's Youtube channel?

Makita has higher prices for a reson....they're better quality.

Maybe so but is the quality/product more than twice as good to justify the price? I highly doubt it.
