This article was originally published in May 2017. This RYOBI 18V Glue Gun Model P305 is still available at The Home Depot as well as a few newer models and accessories.

If you are part of the Tools In Action Power Tool Forum, then you probably already know that Mig found out RYOBI is coming out with an 18V cordless glue gun.  Well, that was back in October (2016) and now we have one to show off.  I can’t tell you how many times a year I use a hot glue gun.  I have two kids and I am always finding new uses for a hot glue gun.  So when I found out RYOBI has a cordless version available, I have to say I was pretty excited.  Now they aren’t the first to market with a cordless glue gun. However, they are the first tool company to include a cordless glue gun as part of their “tool” line. This RYOBI 18V Glue Gun is part of their broad line of 18V tools.

Ryobi Cordless Glue Gun

I have to say that RYOBI did a great job with this glue gun.  As you know, most glue guns are corded and also when you are done, you’re supposed to let it cool while propped up on that little wire easel. On which they usually fall over most of the time.  Trust me if you have used a glue gun before you know that it can get messy.  You just get done gluing something together, you have strands of glue all over the place.  You are trying to hold the two pieces together, but you have to try to set your glue gun down AND hold the pieces in place?  With the RYOBI 18V Glue Gun you can pretty much just set the glue gun down and it will stand up straight on the battery.  You won’t have to worry about it tipping over and making even more of a mess.

On the end of the glue gun, there is a metal nozzle encased in molded plastic to help protect the user.  If for some reason this nozzle gets damaged, it just unscrews and you can replace it with another one. Or maybe you need to change out the nozzle size with one of the Accessory Nozzles you can purchase separately.

A user will get about 3.5 hours of runtime. The gun is operated with a two-finger trigger.  The glue heats up fairly quickly and you are ready to go to work in no time.  This RYOBI 18V Glue Gun retails for about $30 as a bare tool or you can grab a kit for about $40 at The Home Depot. The kit includes the gun plus three glue sticks, a battery, and a charger  – so $40 is not a bad price.
