I wish that you could design a small handle on the 4amp battery.  It is pretty big and I am always afraid I am going to drop it when I pull it off the charger or out of the mower.

Melinda, I'm not sure if you've tried this or not, but there's a molded rubber pad in the middle of the top of the battery and a slight depression in the middle under the battery. I've found that holding the battery is very secure and natural feeling if I place my middle and ring finger onto the rubber pad and use my thumb to grip the depression under the battery.

This hand position lends itself extremely well to the smaller tools that have the batteries upside down; the two fingers go on the rubber pad while the thumb releases the battery catch and then slides into the depression.

With the mower this takes a more deliberate approach, using your thumb to press the release button.

Admittedly, I have large hands so this approach may not work for someone with small hands. However, I would think for smaller hands it would work well or the smaller 2Ah batteries if not the 4Ah.
