One of the interesting features of the 18V One+ Heat Pen is its dual temperature settings. Users can switch between a low and high heat setting using a dial on the stand. The low setting pumps out heat at 450 degrees Fahrenheit, while the high setting reaches 750 degrees Fahrenheit. Ryobi claims the heat pen can reach 700 degrees Fahrenheit in 90 seconds. The max temp of this heat pen is a downgrade from the One+ Heat Gun max temp of 875 degrees Fahrenheit. But this is understandable, considering the pen is significantly smaller in size.
Like the rest of the products in this lineup, the heat pen is powered by an 18V One+ battery. Ryobi claims that this battery provides longer run times and better performance. It’s also said to reduce pack temperatures. However, it’s unclear exactly how much this battery is an improvement from a standard 18V battery, as the tools manufacturer does not provide any numbers or data to support its claim.
You will be able to pick up the 18V One+ Heat Pen exclusively at The Home Depot in September. It will come in two models, bare-tool and bundled with a battery. The tool-only model retails at $59.97, while the 2Ah Lithium Battery and Charger bundle will set you back $99.
