All of these are cordless and run off the Ryobi ONE+ 18V battery. They are sold as tool only, ideal if you already own a Ryobi battery and charger.

However if you have to buy the battery and charger, that will make these expensive. Depending on which battery size and charger you buy, they cost anything between £65-150.

A small battery 1.5Ah battery and charger at the lower end is perfectly fine for a small tool like a glue gun.

The good news is that once you own that battery, it can then be used with 150+ tools in the Ryobi ONE+ range.

As you can quickly see from the above, their Ryobi R18GLU-0 model is their best selling glue gun by a long distance, and also gets the highest buyer ratings.

Just below we have completed a review of each glue gun and explained the key differences between them.

The Ryobi Cordless Glue Gun Compared to other Cordless Glue Gun Brands

Stanley Cordless Glue Gun

200+ reviews

As you can see the Bosch glue gun is the best seller on the UK market. It comes with a 3.6V battery and micro USB charger so better value for money overall in our opinion. That said, the Ryobi model does get higher buyer ratings.

The Stanley glue gun is the cheapest but although it runs off a battery it needs to be charged from the mains when it needs to be re-heated, and has a much lower buyer satisfaction rating.
