Why do Ryobi batteries fail?

It’s because of a thing called ‘Sleep Mode’. This happens when too much juice has been used up in the battery, and the power level is almost completely emptied. Typically this happens when a battery is used up until it’s normally dead. Then it’s left on a shelf for a long time, where it slowly loses even more power.

How do you fix a lithium ion battery that won’t charge?

If your battery can’t hold its charge anymore and drains extremely fast, you might be able to save it by doing a full recharge. You’ll need to completely drain the battery for this to work, so once it reaches zero percent, keep turning it back on until it doesn’t even have enough power to boot.
