Got my 7.5ah battery today from Zoro. Some notes

Finally, after all of my envy, got the battery.  Some initial thoughts.  It isn't NEARLY as big as I thought.  At first I thought it was a 4.0ah battery.  Yes, they look that similar.  Even holding it in one hand and the 4ah battery in the other, it doesn't even feel much heavier.  I can't wait to mow the lawn, do the weed eating, and use the blower.  See if I can get it all done with 1 battery.  Of interest, it was manufactured in November of 2014?  I'm glad for the warranty.

That's some nice quick shipping you got there! Congrats on the new megabatt, what I believe is the industry's highest capacity battery... If that doesn't remove all lawn equipment insecurities I'm not sure what will! :-)

Yeah.  I don't have e-battery envy anymore  :-).

I can't wait to test it.  My lawn work eats through exactly 2 4ah batteries.  If I can lay my tools out and get it all done with this, mission accomplished.  I have to mow the lawn and do quite a bit of weed/eating (ghetto trimming on the driveway), and blow out the flower beds, driveway and road in front of the house.  We'll see!

BTW, notice on the battery box the physical location of the EGO office in the US.  They get a lot of snow.  If it is a snowy winter, I think you'll get a snow blower.

I can't read it off the images, but if I remember correctly they have offices in both Grand Rapids MI and Chicago IL.

Yep, both snowy places... fingers crossed!!!

I'm getting my Powerball ticket today.  If I win, I'm relocating the EGO employees to southern Florida.  We would see an amazing Edger.

The family is back together!

The 2Ah looks, so, cute! He looks more like papa bear than momma bear.

Aaaaah! I got all excited when I saw this email in my inbox, then opened it and saw a pic of the BA4200 and then a caption saying "Get even more Power Beyond Belief for under $100".


Can anyone blame me for hoping this was some sort of exclusive offer for the 7.5Ah battery for $100? :-)



Alas, they were referring to their line of bare tools... one can dream, can't they?

lol :D I think I'm really going to enjoy this community. BTW, in respect to capacity, Husqvarna is beating you with a 14.4Ah backpack battery. ...I have the perfect way to beat that... get a connector for putting 2 7.5Ah batteries in parallel and a battery extension cord and backpack, put the 2 7.5Ah batteries connected in parallel into a backpack and take the port extension cord and connect it to the battery connector and the tool you want to use. Run around for hours without having to recharge :D
