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
