Can I use the 7.5 amp hour BA4200 battery with the LB4800 blower? The manual states to only use the BA2240 or BA1120 batteries but every product description and every forum post seems to indicate all batteries can be used on every EGO product.

All of Ego's batteries are compatible with all of Ego's tools. The only thing you might notice is the weight or balance, but the battery will work just fine.

I have been reading post on this forum for a long while and it seems to be a huge problem with EGO that people don't understand that any battery works with any tool. EGO, you need to address that in future advertisements.

I saw this in the user's manual. So, wondering maybe even though any battery will fit in any Ego tool, it might not be prudent to use any battery in this blower.

"Use the battery operated blower only with specifically designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries may create a risk of fire.

Use only with battery packs and chargers listed below.

Battery Pack  BA2240 BA1120

CHARGER CH5500 CH2100 "

Now, this could be Ego just covering their bases....
