Update: 2/22: 2 pack of 4AH P108 batteries (P122 package) NOW $59 CLEARANCE! -- RUN to get them and stack with this deal, they will be sold out fast!

For the weeks of 2/12 - 2/18 _AND_ 2/19 - 2/25: If you live in an area of the country with a competing Menards store nearby, you MAY be able to stack this with Home Depot's 11% gift card rebate match for Menards 11% off sale his week.[/b]

This is NOT confirmed yet as working, and requires 6-8 weeks of processing -- Please, if any others have done this on previous Ryobi "free" deals stacked with HD's rebate match let us know if the 11% rebate match was accepted or not.

Historically this rebate only works at a subset of HD's in similar markets as Menards. There is a link on HD's web site that has the rebate form. Previously it has listed specific store #'s that the promotion applies for. It currently does not, but YMMV whether or not the rebate would be honored based upon the location of your HD in relation to the nearest Menards: https://www.homedepotrebates.com/11percentmatch/

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Start here: Featured Products Ryobi One Plus Starter Kit Promo [homedepot.com].

1) Add the following "free" item to your cart:
$ 59.00 P128 Green Fast IntelliPort Charger (P117) w/1.2 Ah black Lithium Ion battery (P102) [homedepot.com] (Strange the offer claims "$50 value" when the item itself is $59)

2) Then, pick two of the following tools: I noted the ones included on the endcap banner[*] as shown in the attached picture, but also included all of them that are showing the offer applying on the web site [+].

$ 49.97 * P170 Compact-Lithium-Ion-Battery-2-Pack [homedepot.com] Kit which contains 2x P102 = ~1.2-1.3 Ah (24 Watt hour) *each* for a total of ~2.5 Ah / 48 Wh [toolboyworld.com]) Note:Sale price, was $59.97 but these are low capacity. For $40 more you get 8Ah vs 2.5Ah total with the P122 kit, and you're already getting a P102 in the freebee package.
$ 54.00 + P107 Advanced Lithium+ thin battery (1.5 Ah) [homedepot.com]
----------
$ 59.00 * P105 High-Capacity Lithium+Battery [homedepot.com] (2.4 Ah / 45 Wh)
$ 59.00 * P237 3-Speed 1/4 in Impact Driver [homedepot.com] Note: Sale price, was $79, so with deal is really good bargain.
$ 59.00 * P720 Dual Power 20 Watt LED Work Light [homedepot.com] Note: Sale price, was $69, so with deal is even better
$ 59.97 * P340 JobPlus Base with Multi tool Attachment [homedepot.com] Note: Sale price, was $69, so with deal is even better
$ 59.97 * P523 Orbital Jig Saw [homedepot.com]

$ 99.00 + P122 2 pack advanced lithium+ thick batteries (4.0 Ah each = 8.0 Ah total) [homedepot.com] **Great deal; but note that these are cheaper in most stores at $89 a pack so doing a B&M purchase will save you $10 as they are on clearance from the black friday deal**
$ 99.00 + P109 2 pack advanced lithium+ thin batteries (1.5 Ah each = 3.0 Ah total) [homedepot.com] **NOT a good deal, get P122 instead unless you absolutely need 'thin/light'**
$ 99.00 * P108 High-Capacity Lithium+ Battery [homedepot.com] (4.0 Ah) **HORRIBLE deal, get the P122 instead as that is a double pack for same price, see below**

$ 99.00 * P551 7 1/4-in-Miter-Saw [homedepot.com]

CURRENTLY AVAILABLE One+ series Batteries:
  • Basic One+ Lithium (subtle naming difference from the next series below)
    Black body, White Lettering, NO green labelled sides anywhere, NO level indicators
    .
    P102 [homedepot.com] - Basic 'thin' battery. (1.3 Ah / 71% of classic P100 NiCd power; or normalized to 100% of basic P102 "thin lithium" performance)
    P105 [homedepot.com] - Double size basic 'thick' battery. (2.4 Ah / 141% more than P100 NiCd; or 85% more than P102)
    ----------
    P170 [homedepot.com] = 2 pack of P102's
    P181 [homedepot.com] = 4 pack of P102's
    P155 [homedepot.com] = 3 pack of P105's
    .
  • Advanced One+ Lithium+ (subtle naming difference from the series above)
    Black top and bottom, silver body, White Lettering, green connection tip and top body sticker, green button and 4 green LED level indicator
    .
    P107 [homedepot.com] = Advanced 'thin' battery. (1.5 Ah / 88% more than P100 NiCd; or 15% more than P102 )
    P108 [homedepot.com] = Double size advanced 'thick' battery. (4.0 Ah / 235% more than P100 NiCd; or 307% more than P102)
    ----------
    P109 [homedepot.com] = 2 pack of P107's
    P122 [homedepot.com] = 2 pack of P108's

Basically, a drill or other low-amp-drawing device can easily use either 'thin' battery. A high amp draw device like a saw or blower will absolutely *need* the double size batteries. The two layers run in parallel and can feed higher amps when needed vs. just longer run time from more capacity. Again, either Lithium or Lithium+ will work fine.

You only get about a 15% increase in amp capacity with the Lithium+ over the Lithium batteries in the thin model however in the thick model you get a whopping 67% increase in the double Lithium+ over the double Lithium. Also you get a nice battery level tester.
Yes. There is a datecode on each battery. More info here: http://toolboyworld.com/eBay/Ryobi_Batteries.htm

The problem with small batteries on higher draw tools is not run time, but the amount of current which the batteries can put out. The smaller batteries are a series of five individual 3.7v cells, so each cell must produce the amperage that the tool is calling for, if it can. This rapid discharge rate creates a lot of heat and is bad for the battery. A larger battery pack will have two paralleled banks of five cells, so each cell only has to provide half of the tool's draw, which it will do happily. Even larger packs have even more paralleled banks of five cells.

2ah and under is only going to be a five cell pack which may hamper performance in your high draw tools. 3ah and above should provide much better results.

All that being said, I still use a socket and breaker bar for lug nuts. I add a pipe if some shop gorilla (or corrosion) made them too tight and they come off like a hot knife through butter without that annoying impact cacophony.

Interesting, one of the "tool" options is the 6-battery mega-charger. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but it looks like they redesigned it; the original product had some stupid flaw, can't remember exactly what it was, maybe something about dropping down to trickle charge inappropriately, required a kludgy workaround to overcome (attaching the charger to a timer, forcing it to shut off and reboot at least once every 24 hours)....something like that anyway.

Last year, the way the "Custom Combo" promo ended up working, you could order three of the "qualifying items" and get $59.00 off of the total instead of being locked into buying two and getting only the advertised freebie. It will be interesting to see if this year's promo works the same way.

Well I got the kit from last weekend (3 speed 1/4 inch impact, drill and 2 batteries) and just happen to be looking at the 1/2 impact on ebay If all I plan to do is the occasional Car or trailer tires, do I really need the BIGGER ($60 or $100) batteries or will a few smaller ones do it?

If it was me, I wouldn't buy the bigger capacity batteries just for that. Actually if it was me, I probably wouldn't buy the 1/2" impact at all. I prefer air tools for heavy work like impacts.

If what you want to do is take off a car or trailer's tires, then maybe put them back on (I'd use a torque wrench for the reinstall, of course), then the compact batteries will suffice, especially if you have more than one. If you will be doing a lot more work, say building a deck, hanging drywall in multiple or large rooms, or anything that requires using a saw frequently, the high capacity batteries are a must. The 1/2" impact wrench is hard on batteries, but you should be able to do a whole car just fine with the smaller batteries.

I have a Nicad Sears 1/2 inch drill I bought 10 years ago. I went to go charge the batteries a few years ago. They no longer charge. I tried to Ebay batteries, with no luck, or well priced at a reasonable rate. I bet I used it 10 hours on the pair of batteries.

I probably grabbed the set from last week out of impulse. I know the corded drill works every time. I thought the 1/4 impact would be fun to try, but I do have hand tools that have worked every time too for the last 40yrs. Its just I thought I could add more toys to the tool box.. Why? IDK.. I guess I could Ebay that set and wait for brushless devices.

My 1/2" impact is much happier with the bigger batteries. At the very least use the grey 2.0 batteries. The original black ones sometimes won't get it going on a full charge. The impact is pretty battery hungry

I suspected that.. guess its the 1/2 impact ($120)+ another $60 or $100 in batteries in order to get the extra charger and battery or $200 buys a compressor or a good part of it..

For whatever it's worth I haven't touched my air impact since I purchased the 1/2" Ryobi impact. Plus you'll need a good compressor to run an impact. I still use air for die grinding and sanding but that's at the bench where I don't have to pull out a bunch of hose to use it. I think you'll enjoy your tools very much. They're a great addition

The Ryobi 4ah high-capacity batteries work much better with the impact wrench. Just more current available to loosen bolts than the compact 1.5ah batteries.
