I am interested in your products, but want to know how long the batteries will be available for your products. For example, if I were purchase a mower, would it be possible to purchase a replacement batter in 10 years? what if this company doesn't exist then?

No. Ego is making Hondas line. Unless your talking about a different line

Pretty sure the Honda is re-branded Ego (like how Kobalt is re-branded Green Works).

Derek, I don't have a crystal ball, and all I can tell you is I have invested in the Ego line with faith that, yes, it will be around for a long time.

Derek, I can not speak for everyone on this forum, nor do I have the ability to "predict" the future. That said; I invested in EGO for many reasons, but here are my top reasons:

  1. Power of Gas Without the Fume, or at least close to it
  2. Warranty on Battery (3 Years) and Power Tools (5 Years)
  3. Convenience of Immediate Startup without the hassle
  4. Ease of Maintenance vs. gas power equipment

Like most people, I took a "leap of faith" in buying EGO.  But when I saw that Honda Europe invested in EGO technology and "re-branded" under their famous RED color, I feel as if Honda have done their due diligence, before putting their name and reputation behind this technology.

A quote from Honda Europe announcement back in January 2016:

"Manufactured by Chervon, Honda’s new cordless handheld leaf blower and lawn trimmer have been subject to further enhancements by Honda engineers, adapting technologies to ensure compliance with European regulation. The range will be branded in the familiar Honda red, common to all of Honda’s handheld Lawn & Garden products."

Now, this does not guarantees that EGO will last forever, but nothing lasts forever.  At least for now, I have been extremely HAPPY with my tools and they definitely serve their purposes well.  I am not a "professional" lawn care person - just a normal guy who cares about proper maintenance of my lawn, and having the tools to the job well.  Good luck with your final decision ... :-)

Very true... that Honda has partnered with Ego is a huge vote of confidence. Honda's battery tools are pretty much just rebranded Ego tools.
