Where I have been a huge EGO user because I wanted to get away from gas...my batteries have started to fail and the batteries are as much as the tools themselves. My original blower battery now holds about 20% of its original capacity (according to the EGO charts I should be still at 80%). At 4 years old, this is a huge concern as I am relying on these products now 100% for my yard care.

I did reach out to EGO to see if the batteries can be reconditioned...but they want me to "give them" to Home Depot...so what...they can get them back and sell them back to me refurbished?

Getting nervous on this whole system...

Anyone know if the backpack blower requires a 5 battery or will the 2.5s work?

For all EGO products you can use any battery in any tool. I bought a mower with a 7.5 ah battery, sold the battery on Ebay and run it with a 2.5 I already had. All the number represents is the how lomg it will last not the power.

Sure thing. If you sre going to have a weaker than standard battery though, I would highly recommend the rapid charger.

Just curious how long does the mower last with the 2.5 ah battery. I have a 700 sq ft yard and was thinking if i could get the mower and use the 2.5 ah battery i got with the blower and trimmer combo, rather rhan buyingvthe 7.5ah battery. Batteries are super expensive

I actually got a reconditioned 2.5 battery with a tool I bought in April. I belive my lawn is about 2500 sq ft and I can do it on one charge but the battery light is red at the end. That mower is also self propelled so if yours isn't it should last longer.

Just because you can use all the 56v batteries, doesn't mean that there aren't power benefits to larger capacity batteries. Packs like the 5ah and 7.5ah should be able to push out that power faster. This probably doesn't affect smaller tools like the blower or trimmers, but would have an impact on something like a mower, which has a 1000W motor.

Battery composition does matter

I should have clarified that what I wrote was my current understanding and personal experience not a statement of fact.

Too bad there arent any deals on the power multi head. The regular prices on those really aren't competitive... you can often get other brands WITH batteries and chargers for LESS than the bare tool cost

Yes. I used a 2.5Ah battery my first two years owning EGO products. I have about 4500sq ft of yard. I would cut the front. I would have enough juice to start the back, but i would just take a break and let the battery charge before starting. I could finish my back yard on 1 charge IF I didn't let my lawn get out of control.

Battery tools aren't a commodity, and EGO isn't going after the market where price is the most important. As such, saying their pricing isn't "competitive" isn't really fair, in my opinion. EGO makes top-of-the-line battery equipment. There is a reason other manufacturers are cheaper. They aren't as good.
