Is It Ok To Leave Ryobi Battery On Charger?

Author: E. Silva (aka Mr. Awesome - The Niche Specialty Expert)

The answer — it IS ok to do so. In fact, some experts even go as far as to say that you ought to be doing so. This helps keep your battery fresh and charged for when you are ready to use it, even in a moment’s notice … it’s ready to go, go, go whenever you are! Let’s talk about this more ….

Now, then, I would like to plainly and simply point out to you all that, when you’re done using it, it might not be a bad idea to un – plug the charger itself ( especially after the battery itself has been fully – charged and visibly shows its fully – charged status, as such, he he he he heh ) once you are done using it all for now. This is, of course, to help you save on electric bill costs just a bit and have less drain on the outlet you are using the charger on … every cent you save counts, am I right? Especially these days ….

Now, I would like to also make it very clear and evident that storing said battery is also of the utmost importance, especially storing it properly ( ideally, you want a cool, dry sort of place for it ) . You can still leave it right on its charger as you store it ( no harm, no foul here, as they say, he he he he heh ) …. since the charger will be un – plugged and won’t be draining power or energy from your outlet or wall. It keeps things nice and together, one piece within another, so to speak ( and as some like to say, he he heh ) .

Do not put the battery and charger anywhere near extreme heat, extreme cold or any sort of extreme indoor or outdoor temperatures as this is proven to cut their life short. Your Ryobi battery can, however, last for many good years if you store it in a proper place as mentioned. Take care of it often, and do not forget to brush it up and clean it a little ( when it is dis – connected, of course, for safety reasons ) from time to time, too. All this helps ensure its proper maintenance and overall life – span.

Now, then, if you were to leave the Ryobi battery sitting on its charger for many days after it has reached its max – charge level, it would not hurt you at all. Yet it would not help you, since as I said, you would still be using up unnecessary energy from that outlet and possibly raising your electric bill by anywhere from a few cents to a couple bucks, per day ( depending on the wattage and usage of the particular charger, what model it is, etc ) . So do try and be conscious about that!
