Ryobi’s 18 volt batteries work with all their 18 v. tools, but they have come out with 2 or 3 configurations that vary in storage capacity (amp hours). I like the biggest ones because they are so light weight that that is never a concern for me.

rwe: As I said above, I have Ryobi Lithium batteries at least 4 or 5 years old that have never showed signs of weakening. The drill driver has never faltered, though admittedly I don’t do much driving with it as I like the impact driver better. That particular tool is from the old “blue” era, which shows how old it is. Has never whimpered or complained no matter how heavily I use it.

I probably would have liked the jig saw just fine if the tool less blade changing set up hadn’t crapped out.
