FWIW, owning both, I would wait for when the high capacity batteries (https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.one- ... 81583.html) are on sale instead. These go on for $120 for 2 fairly often - or buy them in the USA for $99 any day of the week. The high capacity batteries are much better for a couple of reasons - first, changing battery packs is a big PITA, and because these last longer you won't change them as much. Second, because they have so much more juice, the high capacity batteries will give you more "oomph" for longer - because as we all know, the last 25% of a LiON battery pack is never as strong as when it is full, making your drill not be strong enough or saw not strong enough for the job, even though it still works. The high capacity ones will last a lot longer, meaning the bottom of the battery takes longer to get there, meaning they seem to be stronger for longer. Finally, having a built-in battery meter is really VERY handy as you never have to guess if the battery has enough juice for the job.

The whole point of the Ryobi One+ system is all of the batteries and tools are interchangeable with eachother. As long as the tool is a One+, you would be good with either set.

Bought the 4a high capacity and immediately tried it in my blower with a regular battery. Both were fully charged. Night and day between the 2.
That's just on a blower, imagine a torque wrench or saw.
