Will my DeWalt battery fit Ryobi tools?

So, you’ve bought that DeWalt tool you had your eye on for ages. You saved up and decided to treat yourself. But now you’re wondering if you can get a bit more value out of it. What if you could get your DeWalt battery to fit Ryobi tools?

Right now, battery ports on cordless power tools are not universal; a concept that doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon, so that expensive battery can’t power a tool that isn’t DeWalt.

With a Badaptor, you can convert your 18-20V DeWalt battery to work with the entire range of Ryobi 18V tools. Here are some of the reasons why that’s a great idea.

Open up your arsenal

In recent years, Ryobi have really started pushing the boat out with their One+ range. It now includes over 250 tools, and Ryobi doesn’t seem to be slowing down its development anytime soon.

This means you can expand your range of tools from DIY and trade to garden tools, including everything from lawnmowers to secateurs.

Save yourself some money

Cordless power tool batteries seem to be getting more expensive by the day. With the amount of different brands out there, you could be spending upwards of £60 ($82)* on a new battery and charging system.

A Badaptor will not only save you money on a battery but when it comes to buying new tools too! Buying a tool without a battery is considerably cheaper than buying one with a battery or as part of a kit.

Converting your battery also means there’s also less for you to store too, keeping your toolbox leaner and lighter.

So if you want to fit your DeWalt battery to Ryobi tools, and save yourself some money at the same time, head on over to now.

Badaptors let you convert your existing battery system for use with a Ryobi, Makita, DeWalt or Milwaukee tool.

Why you should consider buying Ryobi tools

Ryobi has become increasingly popular in the past 10 years, and you may even be considering buying a tool or two of theirs for your collection. But why would you buy from the Ryobi range, rather than from DeWalt or Makita, for example? We set out to answer this all-important question.

So are Ryobi tools good?

Many users question Ryobi’s overall tool quality and power, comparing them to brands such as DeWalt and Makita which are heavily trade focused. However, Ryobi don’t position themselves to be in direct competition with these companies. They classify themselves as a DIY brand, and their tools are tailored as such.

If you consider this, Ryobi’s products more than stand up to what they’re needed for. In some cases, their tools even outperform some of the trade-oriented brands, despite costing far less. We’ve previously covered Ryobi’s range of air-strike nail guns and how many consumers preferred it to similar offerings from DeWalt and Milwaukee.

What Ryobi can offer compared to other brands

Ryobi has always been a hugely innovative brand when it comes to making cordless tools. As of 2022, there are over 250 tools in the One+ range, far more than other established power tool brands.

Being a more DIY-oriented brand, Ryobi often expands their scope beyond generic power tools. Their gardening range is a key area where the choice of tools has increased. The range is extensive and unrivalled, from basic lawnmowers and hedge-trimmers to more niche pruning saws and secateurs. You can also find tools and gadgets for cleaning, crafting, camping, and automotive applications.

Being DIY-oriented also allows Ryobi to keep costs down when manufacturing their tools. Trade tools need to withstand the wear and tear of everyday, constant usage, whereas Ryobi tools aren’t intended to be under continuous strain. They’re also less likely to need the torque required for tough jobs, meaning they can use cost-effective parts and materials in the production process.
