Ryobi USB Charger

I found Ryobi TV on YouTube and looked to see what new video’s and products they were showing and found Ryobi R18USB-0 18V ONE+ USB Charger (Zero Tool)

The R18USB-0 Charger includes 2 charging ports, 1x 1.0A and 1x 2.1A, both of which can detect the accepted charge rate of your devices for rapid and flexible charging. When paired with a RB18L50 5.0Ah Lithium+ battery the charger can hold as much as 6 full phone charges.

This charger is ideal for charging any USB devices outside, on the go or when camping. For me it’s ideal when I’m on the allotment and the mobile needs a boost or perhaps I could use it to work the mini USB Fridge I have in the shed.

£ 24.99 Amazon
.            B&Q
£ 20.95 CBS Power Tools
£ 23.93 CPC
.            Halfords
.            Homebase
£ 31.99 Littlewoods
.            Machine Mart
.            Power Tool Mate
£ 21.95 Tooled Up
£ 24.99 Very
£ 20.94 SGS Engineering

So a price Range of between £20.94 with the lowest cost from SGS Engineering  and the Highest no surprise Littlewoods at £31.99 that’s £11.05 difference

It’s significant that B&Q, Homebase and Halfords are not stocking these tools, and over the last year I’ve seen that these outlets have been reducing their holdings of Ryobi One Tools.

The market blarb from Ryobi states “Power over 100 different tools with the same battery with the One+ system from Ryobi. One battery fits all power tools for your home and garden.” But you cant get them all from DIY outlets in the UK unlike Home Depot in Canada & the USA 

Looking at the main Ryobi web site there are 85 Bare Tools, 35 Starter Kits and 12 Batteries and Chargers which adds up to 132 products, so yes 100+ however in the UK

B&Q now only stock 28 One+ Products
Homebase only stock 50 One+ Products
Halfords only stock 33 One+ Products

So basically, you can’t always walk into a UK national DIY Store and select what you want from the Over 100+ Different One+ range because they just don’t stock them. So the alternative is buying over the internet, or phone and having the items delivered.

Amazon Prime member get free delivery

Littlewoods – Standard Delivery FREE but not really as £11.04 dearer than lowest price found

CBS Power Tools There is a standard £5.95 + vat (£7.24) shipping and handling charge on UK mainland orders under £100

CPC Free Delivery on good over £8 +vat (£9.60)

Tooled-up £3.95 for this item

Very selling at £24.99 only has free delivery on items over £25 and £2 on orders under £25

SGS Engineering Free Over £50 and £6.99 Next Working Day

So let’s see what adding Delivery does to the prices from the various outlets that’s actually see this item

£ 24.99 + FREE P&P Amazon
£ 28.19 = £ 20.95 + £7.24 CBS Power Tools
£ 23.93 + FREE CPC
£ 31.99 + FREE Littlewoods
£ 25.90 = £ 21.95 + £3.95 Tooled Up
£ 26.99 + £ 24.99 + £2 Very
£ 27.95 = £ 20.94 + £6.99 SGS Engineering

Cost Range now £23.93 - £31.99 with Littlewoods still the dearest after adding P&P

So to get the very best deal wait until you want over £50 of Ryobi Tools and buy for £20.94 from SGS Power Tools with free delivery or if you just want the USB Charger now and can't possibly wait for find a second tool to buy it's £23.95 from CPC. 

If Ryobi UK, SGS or CPC feel like they would like to send me a Free one to play with and review then don't be shy always happy to play with and review DIY Tools and Gardening equipment.
