Did you check out Ben’s review of the Ryobi 18V One+ cordless hand vac from earlier this month? You should – he did a great job testing the tool and covering its pros and cons.
As soon as Ben’s review went live, we heard from a couple of places that Ryobi was coming out with a new cordless vac. Oh yes! Oh no!
Yes, it’s true – there’s a new light green-colored vac. BUT, it’s essentially the same vacuum. This is what our friends at Ryobi said about the new vac:
The new green version is very similar to the previous blue one. Just updated the color and overmold to match the new brand language.
So if you’re looking to add a hand vac to your Ryobi 18V cordless power tool collection, don’t be concerned if you can only find the blue model or the green one. They’re basically the same.
The new model is also priced at $25, which is still a great price for what you get. It looks like you can no longer buy the blue model online – only the green one is shown in stock, but it will probably be some time before the green model replaces the blue one in stores.
