A full review of the powerful and lightweight Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer.
There are many reasons why you would want to buy the Ryobi Cordless Electrostatic Sprayer.
Not only does it allow users to easily spray disinfectants to disinfect surfaces, it also only weighs 7.2 pounds.
The Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer is one of the best electrostatic sprayers we’ve found on the market. It utilizes high-quality electrostatic charging technology to powerfully disinfect surfaces.
Performance: Quick and powerful performance
Ryobi is known for their high-quality products, and when it comes to their electrostatic sprayers, they perform very well. I would rate the Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer’s performance 8.5/10 stars, and this is for two reasons.
First, it quickly and powerfully sprays disinfectant solutions while only weighing 7.2 pounds.
Second, it utilizes the best electrostatic charging technology to leave surfaces disinfected for longer. On top of being a very performant electrostatic sprayer, it also has an easy to use design.
Design: Simple and easy-to-use gets the job done
If there’s one reason to shell out your money for the Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer, it’s for its simple design. Whether you’ve used an electrostatic sprayer before, or you are a beginner, you will find it easy to use.
Like other cordless electrostatic sprayers we’ve reviewed, this one is lightweight, making it easy to carry.
Unlike handheld models we’ve reviewed, the Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer has a comfortable backpack design which allows users to easily and comfortably disinfect surfaces. Now, moving on to the battery life...
Battery Life: Long-lasting battery life helps you disinfect surfaces longer between charges
The Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer is known for its long-lasting battery life. The engineers at Ryobi likely knew that a long-lasting battery life is very beneficial for the user-experience, and so they built their sprayer with an 18V ONE+ Ah Battery and 18V ONE+ Charger. The battery life of this sprayer can last users up to 30 gallons.
Price: Not very expensive compared to other models
At just under $900, the Ryobi Backpack Electrostatic Sprayer is more affordable than most high-quality models. We couldn’t find any other electrostatic sprayers that were as good as the Ryobi model for a cheaper price.
There are several other electrostatic sprayers that are worth buying. However, there are a few key differences between them and the Ryobi model. In this section, we’ll cover just that.
Compared to other electrostatic sprayers, the Ryobi backpack model is less tough on the wallet.
The best electrostatic sprayers we’ve reviewed tend to be around the $1000 price point. The Ryobi model is priced under $900, making it a great affordable option.
When choosing which electrostatic sprayer to buy, the price isn’t the only important factor to consider. The tank capacity of the Ryobi sprayer is 1 gallon.
Other popular electrostatic sprayers, like the Victory Handheld Electrostatic Sprayer, has a tank capacity of .25 gallons. Victory Innovations also made a backpack model which has a tank capacity of 2.25 gallons.
So, in terms of tank capacity, the Ryobi model has a good amount compared to other sprayers on the market.
Weight can play a big role in your purchasing decision of an electrostatic sprayer.
Weight can make a sprayer easy to carry and use, and it can also make a sprayer very difficult to carry and use.
According to the Mayo Clinic, repeated heavy lifting or a sudden awkward movement can strain back muscles and spinal ligaments.
That’s why it’s critical to know how heavy the product you’re buying actually is, and if there are other models that tip the scale less.
So, how does the Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer weigh against other models?
The Ryobi weighs 7.2 pounds, weighing less than the Ion Defense Backpack Sprayer which weighs 8 pounds.
The Ryobi weighs less than the Victory Backpack Sprayer since the Victory backpack model weighs 10 pounds.
The Ryobi weighs more than the Victory Handheld Sprayer which weighs 3.8 pounds.
The Ryobi weighs more than the EMist® EPIX360™ TruElectrostatic™ Disinfectant Sprayer which weighs only 3 pounds.
Last but not least, the Ryobi model weighs less than the Electro-Spray Electrostatic Backpack Sprayer which weighs 9 pounds.
Spray range is one of the most important reasons why you would choose one electrostatic sprayer over the other. The longer the spray range, the more surface you can cover in one disinfection session.
So, how much spray range does the Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer have compared to other leading-brands? That’s exactly what we’ll cover in this section.
The Ryobi Electrostatic Sprayer has three settings, each of which have different spray ranges.
- Low setting: Sprays 65 microns up to 2 feet away.
- Medium setting: Sprays 85 microns up to 5 feet away.
