Stuff We Love: Ryobi Cordless Glue Gun

Mark and Josh get their hands on a cordless glue gun. See what they think about it.

Ryobi has transformed a useful tool into one that’s incredibly handy. The Ryobi 18V ONE+ Hot Glue Gun lets you take your glue gun wherever you’re working with extension cords. And it heats up in only 90 seconds.

Unlike most glue guns, which lie on their sides, this model stands up straight, keeping the business end out of harm’s way. The rubberized tip doesn’t get hot (only warm), so you can use two hands for precision and you don’t have to worry about inadvertently burning a project. And as the name says, it’s cordless! It runs off the ubiquitous Ryobi 18-volt lithium battery and has a run-time of up to three and a half hours.

If you thought hot glue was only for crafts, you’ll be surprised just how useful hot glue is in the workshop and around the house. When you only need a temporary hold, hot glue works wonders.
