This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: EGO Battery - Safe Storage and Sleep Mode?

I emailed Ego about this last week but never got a reply. I just purchased an Ego lawn mower, string trimmer and blower. All have their own battery and charger, so I have a total of 3. I only have a small lawn and think that I will only need to use one battery. What is your suggestion for maintenance of my other 2 brand new, unused batteries? Is it better to cycle the usage between the batteries, or just store them and keep them unused?

Thank you!

Vincent,

The beauty of it is that you don't have to do a thing.  After 30 days the two unused batteries will self discharge to about 30% which will be the optimal storage voltage.  Just keep in a cool dry place and you will be gold.  I believe only EGO does this with their batteries.
