Looking around, there are baretool options and tools with batteries and chargers that give a slight discount, when purchased together.  I really like the idea of the Ego Backpack link to use with my hedge trimmer, power head and blower to take some of the weight off of what you hold you in your arms.  However, why not offer backpack link with the 7.5 Amp Hour battery and charger with it for a combo price?  This might help sell more of these backpacks and larger batteries, if the combo price was a big enough discount.

I too agree that the backpack link itself would sell better at the $100 price point, if it were just the backpack, so I'll throw that out there, too.

I'm at a bit of a loss understanding why to create a commercial tethered line.  I like the idea of more durability.  But tethered... Can't do it.

Lapp3r30, with current Lithium ion technologies, the weight /bulk is the main issue. The only solution is a backpack link where the weight is carried on your back instead of the tool that your hand/arm must support.
