How to reset a Ryobi battery

Twice I have experienced Ryobi Lithium batteries going dead. They refuse to accept a new charge from the Ryobi charger. In my case, we’re talking about the 18v batteries for a weed-whacker/leaf-blower.

I found some remedies online which did not work (plugging and unplugging the battery for 30 minutes) Are you serious? That’s not going to work for me. What does work, is warming up the battery to improve its efficiency, and then beginning a charge cycle.

Here’s how to reset your Ryobi battery easily

To reset the Ryobi battery

Total Time: 15 minutes

  1. Turn on your oven and set it to 150 degrees

    DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS IN A MICROWAVE OVEN

  2. Place the battery in the oven

  3. Wait for 10 to 15 minutes

  4. Remove the battery from the oven and place it in the Ryobi charger

    In my case, this is all that was needed to get the charging process going.

Good luck with this tip! Hope it works for you as it did for me.
