Ryobi 18V Compact Bluetooth Speaker PAD02B

Ryobi Releases Most Compact Bluetooth Speaker to Date

Coming to The Home Depot this December, the Ryobi 18V Compact Bluetooth Speaker (PAD02B) ties the company’s innovative sound technology to the industry’s most compact design. I mean, it’s barely larger than the battery that powers it!

10-Second Summary

  • Model: Ryobi PAD02B
  • Smart Amplifier Technology
  • 75′ Bluetooth Range
  • Over 20 hours of runtime using 2.0Ah battery
  • Voice prompts indicate power on/off and pairing
  • 3-Year warranty
  • Available December 2020
  • Price: $29.97 (bare tool)

Ryobi PAD02B Key Features

The Ryobi PAD02B Speaker runs on the brand’s 18V battery platform to deliver over 20 hours of runtime per charge (using a compact 2.0Ah battery). Slap it onto a 1.5Ah battery, and you still get more than a full workday with overtime.

It weighs in at around half a pound, and takes marginally more space than the battery it runs on. Ryobi tells us that this is the most compact 18V Speaker on the market, making it extremely transportable around the home and jobsite.

Yet, despite its size, Ryobi tells us that the PAD02B still delivers clear, crisp sound at any volume. This is thanks to the Smart Amplifier Technology, which we’ve also seen on the recent Ryobi PAD01 Bluetooth Speaker. Ryobi claims their speaker tech produces more dynamic high and low frequencies without distortion at higher volumes.

The Ryobi PAD02B has a 75′ Bluetooth range, and it also features voice prompts that indicate power on/off and Bluetooth connection.

Ryobi Compact BT Speaker Pricing

You can pick up the Ryobi Compact Bluetooth Speaker when it hits the Home Depot’s shelves in December. It will sell as a bare tool for $29.97 and come with Ryobi’s 3-year warranty. In our opinion, that’s too good to pass up if you want some quick tunes and already have some Ryobi tools.
