While doing research about what EGO battery to invest in, I came across the info about the imminent release of the new batteries (2.5Ah, 5Ah and 7.5Ah).  So I thought to myself...what the hey, if they are affordable, why not get the bigger battery.

So I did, before realizing that this must be a mistake, but I went ahead and ordered the new 7.5Ah battery for only $201.49...it was of course back-ordered, but I now have confirmation of an order for the new 7.5Ah battery to be shipped by June 30th.

Sadly, I did more research and now have found that I paid WAY to much for this battery as Zoro corp has it for only $121.12 and Neobits.com has it for $182.95.

Zoro :

Now after even more research, it appears these prices cannot be right...even though they are ...

Should I cancel my order for the battery? or should I simply let this play out to see if I really get a 7.5Ah battery in the mail?
