Ryobi launched their line of USB Lithium cordless power tools in accessories in January 2022, and has expanded the line a couple of times since then.
Ryobi USB Lithium tools are powered by a 4V max rechargeable Li-ion battery that features built-in USB-C charging. A 3-port charging station is also available.
The tools are compact and relatively affordable. Perhaps more important than that, they are convenient.
Ryobi recently added two more tools to the lineup – a high-CRI LED worklight, and a “desktop vacuum.”
With these two additions, that brings the total number of tools and solutions to 18 products, by my count, not including the different batteries or charging station.
I find it especially interesting that there’s not much competition in this space, and no signs of any competing brand throwing much resistance into Ryobi’s path.
The lineup launched with just 4 tools and 1 size of battery.
Just a few months ago, there were 9 tools, 2 batteries, and the 3-port charger.
Now, they’re at 18 tools, 3 batteries, and the charger.
