Kind of the dumbest promo ever (to me)....you get an extra battery with all the cheaper $$ ego products but not their most expensive line (mowers).
 Maybe if they gave an extra 2.0Ah battery with the mowers, some may think of getting a trimmer or blower (sans battery) instead of a cheaper competitors. Not saying ego trimmers aren't great but their is fierce competition price-wise  in that product market....

Anyhow, since the HD Canada flyer is so ambiguous and the fine print so fine (as in tiny and hidden at bottom). My store honored the deceitful  "promo" and gave me the battery with the purchase of a 2102SP
Lets face it it, An ego is still no bargain at over $1000 Ca dollars. With exchange and all factored in its about $100 cheaper to drive down to the states to get one (but you have to stay there 48hrs for customs exemption).

Amber, you mentioned "Get a FREE 2.0Ah battery with purchase of ANY portable EGO Power+ kits (not mowers). Applies to both in-store and online purchases.". I called the Home Depot in Ajax and they tell me that this free battery promo only applies to the Model ST1502SF. I want to buy the Model ST1500SF. Could you please contact the Home Depot in Ajax and clarify to them that the promo applies to ANY string trimmer and then let me know, so that I can buy the ST1500SF. Thank you for your kind help.

The ST1500SF wouldn’t qualify, Clint, since it’s a bare tool and this sale is only for kits. It does, however, apply to the ST1502SF: https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.15-inch-56-volt-lithium-ion-electric-cordless-string-trimmer-with-rapid-reload-head-and-25ah-battery.1001029223.html

Clint - confusion may be that this is actually a free EXTRA battery.  You purchase a kit (tool + battery) and then receive an additional battery for free.

Hmmmm just bought a 2102 yesterday and didn't see anything about a free battery.  AND now the charger is flashing both green/red lights at same time and wont charge battery.

Not a good start.

Free battery offer does not apply to mowers - only hand tool kits.

Give customer service a call in order to diagnose your battery issue and get a warranty replacement if needed.

2102, or lm2102, is a mower so doesn't apply either. 
There is a lot of confusion with this promotion....when you look at the paper flyer......almost like they wanted to bait and switch. but only in hindsight and reading every word and smallprint does it appear clear. Basically it gives you something (an extra battery) that most won't really need. 
Online it is much clearer, as the extra battery is added to the pictograph (but still not explained that it is a promo).

as far as the blinking red/green.Not sure about this as my battery is fully charged so wont blink but The battery can power up the charger even if not plugged into a power outlet . Seems to do it to me occasionally if i plug battery into charger before wall. Make sure there is power in the power outlet- may be a tripped GFI or switched outlet?

Thanks.  It does seem a bit misleading but not a big deal (I guess).  I am more concerned with charger.  I do not believe its the battery, the charger even stays blinking when I unplug it from outlet (tried several) for a few seconds.
