Electrostatic vs Traditional Spraying
The Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer has a leg up on traditional sprayers on account of its ability to cover the whole surface of whatever you’re spraying. The electrostatic spraying, as we’ve mentioned, charges the particles creating a good kind of “static cling”. This makes the particles adhere better and more completely to the surfaces you spray.
As seen in the above image, your traditional sprayer fires off cleaning solutions in a wide cone. You’ll hit what you mean to, but you’ll also spray down things around it, and you could be more efficient in your application.
With electrostatically charged spraying, you get a more directed spray with coverage that surrounds your target. This ups your spraying efficiency, saving you time and materials. Ryobi designed the P2890 as the ideal solution for working with disinfectants, cleaning sprays, and most lawn and garden chemicals.
The Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer runs on the brand’s 18V battery platform. You can use the on/off switch to activate the electrostatic charging function. With the kitted 2.0Ah battery, Ryobi claims the P2890 will spray up to 30 gallons on a charge. That represents a whole lot of spraying.
It also features a 3-in-1 adjustable nozzle selector that lets you choose from three different spray patterns. A turn of the nozzle lets you select between spraying 65-microns droplets up to 2 ft away, 85 microns up to 5 ft away, and 160 microns up to 10 ft away.
Lastly, the Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer is light and compact. With its 1/2-gallon tank, the P2890 really looks comfortable for one-handed operation.
The Ryobi P2890 Electrostatic Sprayer ought to hit the shelves of your local Home Depot this fall. It comes as a kit, packaged with a nozzle change tool, a 2.0Ah battery, and a charger. It will retail for $349, and Ryobi warranties it for 3 years.
