I have 2 56V  batteries I use to mow grass. It takes about an hour and 15 minutes and I change batteries when the first one is completely out of juice.  One of the batteries appears to be dead.  It does not work in the mower and will not take a charge.  The light on top does not come on at all.  I almost always run the batteries to depletion.  What is the life of the batteries.  Please don't tell me they need replaced after 1 summer of mowing grass.

Laura it sounds like you might need a replacement, but not because it wore out.  Rather, it sounds like a defective battery.  All Ego batteries have a 3 year warranty, so no worries.  Just give customer service a call and they will get you fixed up.

customer service department can also be reached at 1-855-EGO-5656 (1-855-346-5656) from 8:30AM - 8:00PM EST (Monday - Friday) & 10:00AM - 6:00PM EST (Saturday & Sunday).

Come back and let us know how things work out for you.

Also, I would say the conservative side of the general consensus around here would be 5 -10 years normal battery life.
