Wonder if this is why the Edger is delayed?  :-D

The only info I found online says the Prius battery is 6.5 Ah @ 201.6 volts, so about 1.3 kWh capacity.

By comparison, an Ego 7.5 Ah battery has .42 kWh capacity. And the hypothetical 7500 Ah Ego battery would absolutely kill @ 420 kWh! LOL

That 7,500Ah battery is NOT going to be comfortable to carry around in my hedge trimmer! And sure, the 83 day continuous runtime on a single charge is nice, but think about the month-long recharge time...

I heard the neighbors called the cops on you a few times for 24 hour EGO sessions.

I thought the timeline for development of an edger was bumped out to fast-track the snow cone maker they announced April 1st?

I am so worn out on that evil date.  SIGH.  My favorite tech site turns into a terrible, torture to read.  I've pretty much learned to turn off anything that can power up on April 1st, and come back to society on the 2nd.  lol.

Is it just me, or does that Red seem to go very well with that Green.

You guys... OBVIOUSLY this 7500Ah pack is for the new line of Ego farm equipment. It takes a lot of torque to manage crops. :-)

Here you go, I did the easy part for you:

It's already green and black, just paint the yellow bits grey and Ego it up! :-)

Guess this is as good as any place as any to display my latest work.  My thoughts on Gas mowers after being electric for my 3rd year.

According to SNL, it seems that Mercedes has stolen this idea for a non-plug-in all-electric battery-powered car and brought it to market already.

Muhuhuhaha!  A little Googling and I'm IN!

Pretty funny stuff!  Though, if they used Ego packs they could reduce that battery count substantially!  :-)

I'm not opening a new off topic thread, so just adding to this for fun stuff.

Hit your search engine folks.  See who can guess what year these came out.

I think this guy wrote the book on creative.  Bring on the disco balls.  Let's see you try that with today's mowers (safety features).
