I've never had an experience with a pre-owned battery, but the concept itself is frightening.

It doesn't take much to destroy these batteries. Unless it's extremely cheap, I would stay away from a used battery. "Certified Pre-Owned" is just another fancy way of saying "used".

TD. Original notification says nothing about pre-owned. 5 minutes wasted.

Seems dishonest to specify pre-owned, when it's really just a used item.

Direct Tools is owned by TTI, the manufacturer of Ryobi. As such, these are most likely just Home Depot store returns that couldn't be resold as new. They're inspected and tested and backed by a one year warranty.

This is quite different than buying from some fly-by-night eBay style refurbisher.

No matter what it's always a bad idea to buy used batteries. They could've been in the worse weather, used about 1,000 times and the discharge/recharge rater could be terrible. I wouldn't say it would fail, but expect run times to be cut in half.

This is a decent deal considering it's being sold direct from the manufacturer. While I've never bought cpo batteries separately, I did buy lots of cpo Ryobi tools from direct tools outlet during their March sale. Some of them were kits, so they came with cpo batteries. Other than the 'REFURB' stamp etched into every tool and battery, all of them looked and performed like new. These aren't truly 'pre-owned'; they are returns. So they were used at most for 90 days. But none of the ones I received had any signs of use. There wasn't a single dud either, and they all had testing stickers on them. So I think they do test them before reselling them.

The lowest I've seen these new is $119 for two, while the usual price is $139 for two. Here you're getting 2 batteries for $91, including shipping. The short-lived 4AH deal from 2 days ago was the same cost per AH, but those were new, and so obviously a better deal.

While I have a lot of trust in direct tools outlet based on past experience and would expect like-new batteries, the real bummer with this deal is the 1 year cpo warranty, versus a 3 year warranty with a new battery. I know people who have gotten their Ryobi batteries replaced by warranty when they failed after two years, so the full warranty does have real value.
