40V LITHIUM-ION RAPID CHARGER is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for higher capacity batteries Bought this to complement a new snowblower with twin batteries. Between the ~4 hours to charge with the included charger, and that it came with only one, getting another charger was a no-brainer. Unit is a little large compared to standard Ryobi chargers, but proportional to the batteries they are meant for. Cooling fan is a reasonable volume and only runs while it is actively charging which is a plus compared to the rapid chargers from some other tool brands. Absolutely recommend to anyone with 40 volt Ryobi tools. Excited to see how it holds up against regular use this winter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really is fast! I bought this as I was needing more batteries than I had to work continuously mowing lawns, cutting trees, and blowing. The standard chargers seem to take hours to charge batteries, so I had to sometimes wait. Once I got the fast charger though I can pretty much work continuously with only two 4 or 5 amp hour batteries, and the charger can pretty much keep up with whatever I am doing. Very happy with that, and wish I had purchased it sooner. It takes less than 1 hour for me to charge my 5ah battery now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it my children bought me a Ryobi 21 inch self propelled lawnmower and leaf blower. With both batteries I can JUST mow my lawn 1/3 acre. So I would not feel rushed they got me this rapid charger and now I really love Ryobi. The Rapid Charger only takes 40 minutes, I wish Ryobi gave customers a choice between regular charger or Rapid Charger when you purchase a tool or lawnmower. Don't hesitate to buy this rapid charger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charges Fast, not too loud Super fast charge even on the big 7.5ah battery. Simple to use with auto-detection so it wont try and charge a hot battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Charger EVER This is the fastest charging unit I have ever owned. Is sounds like there could be a thyristor or something building the charge (like the one in an electronic camera flash unit?) I fully-charges a 40v Ryobi battery in about one hour. When I'm working with one battery the other can be recharged to let me keep on going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Charging I bought this because the basic chargers that come with the tools are too slow. While they work, battery charging is 4+ hours on the big batteries, i.e. 6Ah with the basic charger. This rapid charger can charge a battery in about hour. This was very handy last week when we had a 3 day snow event and i was blowing snow with the Ryobi 40v snowblower 2-3 times a day. The snowblower takes two batteries so i needed a way to charge the batteries quicker. While it is expensive, it's worth it if charging time reduction is important to you.
