So it’s been a few years since I upgraded any of my cordless tools. I think like most people, you buy a good set of tools and if you take good care of them, they will last for ever. Well, let me give you a reason to upgrade! Introducing the Ryobi
18v One+ Lithium Ultimate Combo Kit! This kit is a perfect upgrade or a great gift for the handy man! The first thing I noticed was the battery was much smaller, making the tools lighter, but also had far more power! I was even more excited to see two battery packs with this kit! You will never know how important that is until you have a day long project that you need to switch battery packs. You can always have one charging while you are working! This keeps the project on track with no down time! The Ryobi 18V One+ Lithium batteries provide up to 35% more run time and hold a charge four times longer than NiCd batteries. Yes, since it has been a while, I was running NiCd batteries and can clearly see and feel the difference! One great feature is the “check your charge” gauge on the battery. As simple as it seems, I can’t tell you how many times I have picked up a battery wondering if it is charged. Simply push the button on the battery and you will instantly know how much power you have! The Ultimate Combo kit comes with the 18V lithium compact battery, however for heavy users, you can purchase the 18V lithium high capacity battery for even more run time.
OK enough about the batteries, how about the tools? The 18V lithium Ultimate Combo Kit comes with the following tools, P208B Drill/Driver, P236A Impact Driver, P506 Circular Saw, P514 Reciprocating Saw, P570 Multi-tool and rotating head flashlight. So a couple of real cool features about all these products. The P506 Circular Saw features the ExactLine laser for accurate cuts, the P514 Reciprocating Saw features Anti-Vibe technology to reduce fatigue and give you better control of the saw. This is the perfect kit for any job around the house! The nice part about the 18V Lithium One+ system is there are several additional tools you can add to this all using the same battery. For example, the P325 cordless finish nailer. It’s been so long since I have upgraded my tools, I didn’t even know a cordless finish nailer even existed! This is perfect for that quick fix so you don’t have to break out the compressor for just a couple of nails. Other cool cordless tools include hedge trimmers, weed whackers, radio and everything you can think of! When it comes to battery powered tools, your first stop should be www.ryobitools.com! You will find everything you need to upgrade or find the perfect gift for that special handyman or handywoman this holiday season!
