I have the old style of this. Any reason to get the newer version?

Yes, this one charges every battery at once. Old does one at a time.

yeah, that's not enuf for me to upgrade. im typically not returning 6 batteries at once and needing them in the time it takes one to charge

annoying, i admit, but not actually impacting me

thanks for the confirmation

That's not what sequential means, nor is that what it says on the product page. It says it charges one at a time.

There was some issue with the older model failing to trickle-charge batteries once they were fully charged; as I recall, if you loaded several batteries into the unit, when it got done charging the last one, it would just stop all charging there... I think. Several reviews mention this problem. One fix was to put the charger on a 24-hour timer so the whole thing would be powered down and back up again every 12 hours or so. "Rebooting" the charger would force it to start all over and top off all the batteries. From what I've read, this issue was fixed in the newer version of the charger.

The much better deal was buying the hammer drill kit plus the special supercharger-plus-two-free-batteries set [homedepot.com] for $149 total, which was posted here at the end of November. Unfortunately the latter kit is not sold in stores and is now out of stock online; I'm not sure it's likely to come back.

yes i do recall hearing that, ultimately, what does that mean for my batteries? would it mean if they sat long enuf, none of them would work? Cuz ive not had any problems of them not being charged when i pull them out, even if i havent used for like months

Honestly I don't think the defective trickle charge issue on the older unit is that big a deal, unless you go many months without using them. They hold most of their charge a pretty long time.

Yup, still kicking myself for missing out on the super charger. Actually, rather me being on the fence about it. I can't bring myself to picking the charger up by itself for 51.xx when the charger with 2 batteries was going for 66ish. Fingers crossed they come back in stock, but I know it's unlikely to happen Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

Nothing wrong with Ryobi, perfectly fine consumer brand. Heck I even know contractors who use it.
