Home Depot has this combo with battery and charger on sale. It seems a good deal. Isn't it?

Thanks OP. These deals always come up and they're good for small jobs.

BUT!!!! If you already own any of the Ryobi 18V 4Ah batteries then i suggest you get the 18V Brushless string trimmer. It's better than the Ryobi 40V string trimmers. You can find multiple reviews on internet where people echo this statement. Seriously this thing is a beast and will actually do a good job as a cordless trimmer.
They sell it with a battery and charger for $198 or tool only for $129. More expensive but WELL worth the money if you want a useable cordless trimmer and are already in the Ryobi 18V battery ecosystem.

Decent deal.
I have the same trimmer, not exceedingly powerful but more then adequate for residential use as long as you respect its limits.
The 2A battery will give more life then the 1.3A i have. I would expect 15-25 mins of battery life
The beatings will continue until morale improves

no, eh, but they're so much more affordable it should much matter... the hundreds or thousands ou save on the initial purchase of the tools and batts, you can roll in to new batts

Yeah I will probably just pull the trigger on this. The Ryobi inflator is so handy!

My second choice is the black and decker combo that sometimes goes for $99...

Nope, the batteries are 3 years. Just call and get them replaced before the 3 years are up if they don't die before then. Even the replacements are warrantied for 3 years (3yrs from date of the purchase of the ORIGINAL batteries just an FYI) I've done a few claims on my Ryobi batteries as long as you have the original receipt and the battery serial number.

Anyone interested in just the trimmer I'd work out a deal with you to split it. I just want the blower.

I already have a battery and charger from another tool. Maybe it could be like a 60/40 split to who takes the battery or something like that.

Same. I just need the blower and no battery/charger so let me know if you want to part with the blower!
