I seem to be going round in circles.
The old Ryobi charger, the Ryobi BC-1815-S charger that is for 18.0v Ryobi BPP-1820 batteries has finally given up on me after many years of domestic use. It was being used and charging fine and then just stopped, no lights, nothing. I changed the fuse in the plug but no effect.
So I thought I would get a new, modern charger rather than a 2nd hand/used one from Ebay.
I looked at this type ...

and this one ....

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/363571600293?hash=item54a68e5ba5:g:aycAAOSwjpFhX-0W

Now this is where I get confused.

For both different chargers different sellers (all from China) give differing answers. One says it will work with the BPP-1820 and another says it won't. The same for both style of charger so I just don't know what will work or not !

Can anyone please shed some light on this for me, will either of these chargers recharge the batteries or not ?

Many Thanks

Brian.

both those charges you link too are nothing to do with ryobi "for ryobi" means knock off copy but gets the brand in your brain by misguiding you :D
a genuine ryobi charger will charge any older ryobi batteries plus any newer or old tools that fit the batteries
i cannot vouch for aftermarket or knock off as i only use genuine
as an aside your batteries being old are likly to be on reduced capacity off up to 75% lower capacity

this company cbs tools run ryobi direct tools site usually very competitive prices

as an aside a"P" prefix refers to an american battery number as in p104/107/108/109/

uk battery are self descriptiveve as in 1820=18v/2ah
and descriptions like "for ryobi" means non genuine



P108 P107 P109 P104
