Ryobi 18v One+ battery won’t hold a charge. I have two of them and neither one will hold the charge. The charger is the Ryobi 18v charger plus. I have the same problem. As soon as I put the battery in the charger (even if it is dead) the “charging”, and the “fully charged” lights both come on. Even if I leave it for a day the battery will not charge.
ANSWER : If it’s both of them then i am thinking you have a faulty charger. i have seen mine do that, i got a new charger and it worked properly.

My weed eater hedge trimmer runs for about 10 minutes and cuts off. It seems as though it is flooded, because it won’t start again until some time later. But it continues with the same pattern. I purchased a can of premixed gas/oil to make sure it was my mixture, to no avail. I have not replaced the spark plug yet, but I don’t think that has anything to do with it. Do you have any suggestions?
ANSWER : The plug can be the problem but also the air mix as well get the best plug you can

I am having problems with the battery on my worx gt trimmer. It will not stay charged even though the battery charger indicates a green light. What am I doing wrong? I put it back on he charger it will read a red light and then switch to green after a few seconds.
ANSWER : You can determine exactly what is going on by using a small handheld voltmeter. They are inexpensive, easy to use and come in very handy. Just test the output of the charger (after noting what the volt-output-rating is) by touching the leads of the meter to the terminals on the charger. If the charger is working at all, this is not a dangerous test. Conversely, test the output of your batteries by touching the leads of the voltmeter to the terminals on them. I suspect the charger is bad because after they overheat, they quit working and some don’t last very long. I don’t think YOU are doing anything wrong, just maybe the companies that manufacture these 2 electrical products are.

Why is the red light blinking on the charger??
ANSWER : Either the battery charger or the battery itself is bad. The charger can be easily tested with a volt meter to see if it is producing the correct voltage to charge the battery. The batttery voltage can also be checked the same way. Some other users have had this same issue.

I used my Worx trimmer successfully last season. This spring when I went to use it, it would not hold a charge. The light shows green on the charger but the trimmer only works for about a minute before it slows to a stop. If you press the on button again, it will go very slowly then stops.
ANSWER : Your battery is shot. I had one of these, the batteries are really cheap and don’t last long. If you can afford it, ditch the Worx and buy a quality trimmer at your local hardware store. If you are short on cash you can buy new batteries online.
