My father works for black and decker in R&D for batteries and said "The working capacity is not there. Batteries would last less than 2 hours and then an hour to recharge."

Agreed, I have 6 of the 20 volt batteries. The 40 volt batteries have no appeal to me unless I could afford all the 40 volt equipment. As of now, I have th 20V blower and string trimmer. I am happy with both around the house, but I wouldn't want to use them commercially

Not to mention that heir "20v" batteries are actually 18v. You can't get 20v out of lithium batteries. They have the same number of cells as any other 18v tool.
So I wonder if that's really a 36v battery being sold as a 40v.

Batteries are way better than they were a couple years ago but powering tools like this isn't quite there yet. Leaf blowers take an immense amount of energy to move air and spinning a cutter head on a string trimmer isn't bad but still takes allot of power. I can see it being fine for the average homeowner with a small yard but for more than that the longer run time and lighter weight of a gas engine is still better. Course when the day comes I can replace all two strokes with electric I will. I hate two stroke engines and it's worse with today's crap fuel that dissolves the carbs.

Use the canned pre-mix from your home store in your small two strokes. It costs more but will save time and money associated with carburetor issues. Or if you want to mix your own and save a little bit of money, many gas stations sell ethanol free fuel for power equipment. Use pure-gas.org as a starting place to find a station that sells it.

For cost and power Im happy with my corded electric tools. Its really not a big deal to run around with the 100ft extension cord.
