Batteries - to charge or not to charge.. I have TWO batteries for my blower and trimmer. I use each tool 10 minutes a week; not enough to discharge one battery. Should I rotate batteries? or keep one in the box and pull it out when the first one dies???

Jim, you can do whatever you like.

I have a small yard, and my personal approach is to just leave a battery in each tool. I get 3-4 weeks worth of use out of the blower and trimmer between charges.

Yes you can leave a battery on the charger, but it’s generally recommended to unplug things that aren’t being used so removing the battery and unplugging the charger is probably the right thing to do.
