Has any official tests from Ego been done( or anyone have personal experience) with the battery usage time, or overall mower power, increase or decrease when changing the mulching insert, discharge spout, or bag.

Bagging is going to be the most efficient. It has the least resistance for the grass to evacuate the deck. The side discharge is just silly and does restrict the air flow out. I would bet money that bagging is the best for mower run time. On the other hand, mulching is best for the users run time;) extra weight
