Camelfilter Curious if it’d work on one of my brass tumblers and the Franklin case prep station. That’d be convenient!

cook Could have used it mon.,power went out at 3 am...but got here tue.
Anyways,it works fine..tried it out on the router,box fan,desk fan,tv,and lamp.
Very happy I got it.
Is it worth the price?Thats up to you to decide.It was for me.

Yep, ryobi's got that covered.
Well damn, the list keeps growing. That on just moved to the top of the list. Followed by the hot glue gun.

Yah, about the time some phones were burning up due shorted batteries, some fanatics oversees decided to swap out laptop batteries with “other things”.

Similarly printer cartridges, if I recall correctly.

Lithium battery shipment was implicated in a fatal UPS cargo plane fire & crash.

OliverR. Not going to lie, if I was in your situation, I would have bought it too.

I like the light, USB and power output design of it. It's not high output, but would be just perfect for running a led droplight/stringlights at a camp.

I have Milwaukee tools for work. Drills, impacts and radio with a few batteries. I bought an adapter a while ago that is a 18v battery to USB and also has a port to power milwaukees line of heated clothing. I have yet to use it, but would much more when my boy gets a little older and we start camping and stuff. Milwaukee tools are great, the batteries kick ass. But they are expensive and the tools and batteries are still chinesium.

My dad uses Ryobi stuff. He likes it, and it's very reasonable. But I wouldn't count on them making a good 9-12 amp hour battery. Maybe they will. Who knows
06-09-2019 02:44 PM
country_boy One thing, Iíd use it for would be a cordless soldering iron or gun. It would have the power, and some of the solder type connectors go in the dampest places. But otherwise, not terabally useful. You could get some use out of a 12v regulated output. I built one at work out of a broken dewalt sawsall to run a red LED flasher on the back of a long load. Build the prototype at work, and saved enough parts to do one at home.

BTW, you canít carry lithium batts as checked baggage., so I had a intern build a 2 battery, 12 battery, a 24 battery carrying case. Using a hot wire band saw. Filled with 3 Ah batteries, thereís some serious power there.

Only problem is she took the bandsaw back to her sorority, and doesnít want to give it up.

randolphrowzeebragg Ryobi is offering this because it allows people to plug in low-load devices like phone chargers when AC isn't available. If you're on a job site or repairing your vacation cabin, this would be a handy device. Who would want to plug an inverter into a cigarette lighter and then turn on your vehicle's ignition just to make a call or check your messages?
It's the same reason that batteries aren't interchangeable between different manufacturers' hand tools. Once you decide for whatever reason that you want to buy Ryobi, it behooves them to offer as many options as possible. People who believe that this device is suitable for powering a refrigerator are the same people who would plug a Ryobi charger into a Ryobi inverter as a way of charging the inverter's battery

I hear what you're saying, and perhaps it is my imagination that is the limiting factor... but what do you envision this being used for?

18V x 4 amp battery pack = 72 WH assuming no losses within the device. The inverter is also limited to proprietary batteries and in in a pinch, those batteries may be more useful working other things in the ryobi lineup like a drill, radio, saw, flashlight... which brings us back to the point of what will it power that ryobi doesn't already have in it's lineup?

I see this as a glorified battery charger for phones etc... which for a similar price one would do better purchasing a 1000w lithium jump starter which has 1000 watts available, and for an extra $10, buy a 140w inverter on ebay, and you have a better, more useful, more versitalie backup to the backup.

I agree that it's a neat toy to add to the collection of yellow in the garage if you got money looking to be spent, but I see this more as a gimmick, or spontaneous purchase and not something of with any real usefulness.

$0.02

It has and hasn't. Handy for portable tools but limited versus plug in versions. With multiple battery packs and fast chargers you can do a lot of work in certain applications.

Hanged on to them for a long time before I simply ending up chucking them out. Seemed a shame.

Based on the numbers you will not be able to power much of anything. But if you are happy and having fun experimenting with the new addition to your Ryobi arsenal that is a good reason as any to own it.

maintenanceguy Volts x Amps = Watts -or- Amps = Watts / Volts.

150 Watts / 120 Volts = 1.25 Amps. So, you can run an applicance that draws less than 1.25 amps. But that's if the inverter is rated for 150W continuous use. I don't know if this one is.

But there's more... the battery can only provide 6 Amp hours according to the listing on Home Depot's site. Using the same formula for the battery side of the inverter:

Amps = Watts / Volts -or- 150 Watts / 18 Volts = 8.3 Amps. You would be drawing 8.3 Amps from the battery which can deliver 6 Amps for 1 hour. Your setup should last for about 45 minutes.

Keep in mind that manufacurer's ratings often leave out some real world stuff so your real world results are more likely to be about half of that.

randolphrowzeebragg Pretty steep for a 150 watt inverter. Most likely if it will work with a 18vdc input, it'll probably work with 12vdc like a car battery.

Camelfilter Hmm...neat! Would be another way to power our portable 12V/120V fridge / freezer, perhaps. Albeit not the most efficient way, but a convenient backup to a backup...
06-07-2019 06:20 PM
JRR I only own three things that use over 150 watts: the air conditioner, washer, and dryer. And I don't use the dryer any more.
06-07-2019 02:43 PM
cook JDH,I checked back on-line at my lunch break and saw that.Hard to navigate the site,but ende up getting the inverter and the battery starter kit for the 99.99$ and about 6$ tax,free delivery.
