I have always mulched, with many different mowers. My concern with this mower is that it appears to not pull as much of an "upward vacuum" at the edge of the blade (where cutting occurs) as my previous mowers. I know it is not fair to make some comparisons between overpowered gas mowers and this efficient electric, but I am finding that this mower/blade can "lay my grass over" and not pull it up to cut it off. Yes, this happens more when I have let the grass get too long, but welcome to my world!!
When I look at the shape of the blade, compared to a typical mower blade, you have removed the turned up edge at the outside edge of the blade, which creates the upward air force. I'm an electrical engineer, and so I completely understand that this will be a bigger drag on the motor, and reduce battery run-time (and probably make it a bit louder), but I would make that trade-off, to either buy and extra battery, or mow my back yard, and then get some lemonaid (while charging), and then do my front yard.
Bottom line is that the present blade is sometimes laying my grass over, instead of pulling it up while cutting. PLEASE offer another blade, or I may need to improvise, as we EE eggheads do. I would prefer to use an alternative blade that you offer. The engineering on this mower is awesome... the blade just needs a few options :-)
