RYOBI® ONE+™ Is Now Over 40

Fully Compatible Line of Do-It-Yourselfer Tools That Share the Same Batteries and Chargers

ANDERSON, S.C., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- RYOBI ONE+ 18V system is celebrating being over 40, over 40 different tools that all work on the same battery platform.  So whether you're building your new deck, installing blinds, sanding your new project, listening to your favorite ball game, inflating tires before heading out on vacation or cooling off in front of the fan we have the right convenient cordless products for you.

The ONE+ System is the most versatile cordless tool system on the market, including more than 40 tools and three battery options that are fully compatible.  This allows current RYOBI 18 Volt ONE+ batteries to work with any RYOBI 18 Volt tool ever made and vice versa. The RYOBI ONE+ System enables DIYers and cost conscious pros to purchase the value packed combo kits or tools, batteries and chargers individually. So, they can build their systems to best suit their needs, without the extra cost of batteries and chargers they don't need.

The heart of the ONE+ system revolves around three different 18 volt battery options which enable the consumer to match the battery to their specific project need.  Choose from the NiCd battery for value, the compact lithium-ion for extended run-time and lighter weight and the full size lithium-ion for those more demanding projects.

"We wanted to give users options. If a DIYer loves his five-year-old 18-volt RYOBI drill, he doesn't need to invest in a new tool. He can simply remove the old NiCd battery and replace it with a RYOBI High Capacity Lithium-ion Battery, which will give him more power and a longer run-time," explains Joseph Galli, CEO for TTI, manufacturer of RYOBI Tools. "Alternately, if a homeowner is looking to purchase a new tool, he can choose from a wide range of RYOBI ONE+ tools, all which can share the same powerful battery. No one offers their users more value and options than RYOBI power tools."

RYOBI ONE+ is the #1 Consumer Cordless Power Tool program in North America, and it is available exclusively at The Home Depot®.
