Ryobi 18V Cordless Electrostatic Sprayer

Ryobi 18V Cordless Electrostatic Sprayer

Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer Line Offers Multiple Cordless Options for Convenient Dispersal

Each member of the Ryobi 18V Cordless Electrostatic Sprayer line uses battery power to positively charge your cleaner and disinfectant particles. Why do you need positively charged particles, you might ask?

Because your charged-up cleaner particles deliver better coverage than what your old sprayer can deliver. Coupled with the convenient and portable size of these sprayers, Ryobi designed them to be your new go-to solution for fast, effective spraying jobs.

All of these electrostatic sprayers run on Ryobi’s 18V One+ batteries.

Electrostatic vs Traditional Spraying

Each Ryobi 18V Cordless 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 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. While cleaning with disinfectants might be the most popular today, they’re also effective for most lawn and garden chemicals.

Ryobi PSP02K Electrostatic Sprayer Kit |Handheld Cordless

This one is for quick and convenient spraying of disinfectants, cleaners, and deodorizers, particularly when large quantities aren’t necessarily in order. The PSP02K features a 1-liter translucent tank that helps keep this electrostatic sprayer light and maneuverable. It’s compatible with larger tanks if you find yourself on a job where greater capacity helps you out.

With the kitted 2.0Ah battery, the Ryobi PSP02K can run through up to 60 tanks per charge. Doing some quick conversion, that’s an almost-16-gallon runtime.

You also have options when it comes to coverage and spray distance. A 3-in-1 adjustable nozzle selector with tool-free nozzle turret lets you pick your setting quickly. You can select 50-, 75-, and 100-micron size droplets. The PSP02K can spray up to 5 feet away.

Ryobi P2870 Electrostatic Sprayer | 1-Gallon Cordless

For larger, more time-consuming jobs, the Ryobi P2870 1-Gallon Electrostatic Sprayer might better fit the bill. It features a translucent 1-gallon detachable tank that you can throw on your back.

Again, you’ll see the adjustable nozzle selector on the P2870 as well, though this time, you can select between 65-, 85-, and 160-micron droplets. It can spray up to 10 feet away.

Ryobi tells us that this model can run for 30 gallons per charge when using the kitted 2.0Ah battery.

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, this Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer is lighter and more compact than its big brother. With its 1/2-gallon tank, the P2890 should be more comfortable for quick, one-handed operation.

Hi Chris I see that the handheld offers 50 microns is the low setting but the backpack version the lowest setting is 65? is it possible to change the nozzle to get a 50 micron spray on the backpack version?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
