If you are part of the Power Tool Forum, then you probably already know that Mig found about Ryobi is coming out with a cordless glue gun. Well, that was back in October 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 the 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 company to introduce this cordless glue gun who has a huge line of other tools that go along with their 18V line of tools.
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 have to set it on a stand and most of the time they fall over. Trust me if you have used a glue gun before you know that it can get messy. Does this sound familiar? 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 set your glue gun down and hold the piece in place? With the 18V battery, 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 noise piece that is wrapped in plastic to help protect the user. If for some reason this noise piece gets damaged, it just unscrews and you can replace it with another one.
A user will get about 3.5 hours of runtime and features a two finger trigger. Not there really is much to talk about with this glue gun except it does what it says it should. The glue heats up fairly fast and you are ready to work in no time. This tool retail for about $30 at The Home Depot. Now a bad price for this type of tool.
