Ryobi 40V 1800W Power Station Inverter | RYI1802B6


Ryobi Power Station Offers Solutions For Jobsite, Home and Recreational Use

As battery power continues to become more sophisticated and powerful, Ryobi has launched the 40V Power Station Inverter. Doubling as a super-charger for your Ryobi 40V batteries, it provides pure sine wave current to power everything from TVs and refrigerators down to your sensitive electronics. With 1,800 watts of running power (and 3,000 watts of peak power), the Ryobi RYI1802B6 looks like a viable solution for the jobsite, camping, tailgating, and emergency backup applications.

What’s the Big Deal?

The big deal surrounding the Ryobi 40V Power Station Inverter revolves around its modular design. The battery-powered inverter market is not short of options at this point, but where most employ an internal battery design, we enjoy the fact that we can run this inverter using between 1 to 4 Ryobi 40V batteries of any size (though for optimized performance and runtime, you’ll likely want to be using all 4 available ports).

When plugged into AC power using the included charging adaptor, the RYi1802 will operate as a battery charger to sequentially recharge your batteries. It ought to be noted, however, that it doesn’t appear as though the inverter has pass-through capabilities. This means that, when plugged in, the inverter only operates as a charger, cutting power to anything you have plugged into the outlets or USB ports.

However, when operating as a portable power solution, the Ryobi 40V Power Station Inverter provides clean, quiet power. With 3,000 starting watts and 1,800 running watts, the RYi1802 can power appliances, fans, lights, and small electronics from its three 120V outlets. Or you can use any of the 6 various USB ports to recharge your phones, laptops, batteries, and other sensitive electronic devices.

If more power is required, the Ryobi Power Station can be connected to another inverter for twice the power output. Ryobi sells the parallel kit separately.

Ryobi has also designed the 40V Power Station Inverter with Bluetooth capability so that you can use the Ryobi GenControl app to control it from your smart device. With the app, you can activate the remote shutoff as well as monitor battery levels and power consumption rates.

Side-By-Side
