Ryobi One+ Power Tool System Review By Dean Bielanowski
http://www.onlinetoolreviews.com/review ... neplus.htm
Looks like some of the tools are slightly different, but in these days of the internet, not that hard to get a US or Aussie only version if you really want to and no worries about right voltages between countries with cordless!
She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

The Ryobi cordless 18 volt 0ne plus system really does meet my requirements. I am a heavy handed professional user, and I cannot fault this kit. With the exception of the 115mm angle grinder, 1 charger and 2 batteries can keep up with the demands that I place upon this kit. The angle grinder is not at fault, it is the level of work that I inflict on it, when metal grinding. Using it with a slotted daimond cut off disc, when cutting fibreglass and carbon fibre is where this cordless angle grinder is at it's most useful for me. In reality when grinding steel, I am be better off with a powerful corded version, but only because of the amount of grinding prep work that I usually have to do on steel fabrication job.
Currently I have 18 pieces of kit from the Ryobi One plus range;
1) 2 speed drill
3) Impact driver
4) Circular saw
6) Reciprocating saw
7) rotary cutter
8) Corner sander
9) Orbital sander
10) Angle grinder
12) Caulking gun
14) Tyre inflator
15) Fluorescent Light
17) Tuff sucker Wet & Dry Hand Vac
18) Portable 2 gallon Wet & Dry Vacuum
Not only do I make my living with this kit, but it also gets used in my enthusiastic (albeit, unskilled) efforts at DIY and woodwork, along with using some of the kit in my hobbies, cycling and camping adventures.
If you guys would like, I can post individual reviews of the Ryobi kit that I have to date.
