Abstract: The B0 and B+ meson lifetimes have been measured in e+e- annihilation data collected in 1999 and 2000 with the BABAR detector at center-of-mass energies near the ϒ(4S) resonance. Events are selected in which one B meson is fully reconstructed in a hadronic final state while the second B meson is reconstructed inclusively. A combined fit to the B0 and the B+ decay time difference distributions yields τB0 = 1.546±0.032(stat)±0.022(syst) ps, τB+ = 1.673±0.032(stat)±0.023(syst) ps, and τB+/τB0 = 1.082±0.026(stat)±0.012(syst).
