I just purchased the Ego Mower. Does the mower battery work in the string trimmer?

Hi Brad.  Yes, the string trimmer can use the mower's battery.  As an added bonus, with the mower's battery, you will get approximately double the run time on the string trimmer vs. the 2.0 Ah battery.  All batteries are interchangeable between all EGO Power+ tools.

So, the mower can also use the string trimmer and blower batteries? Sounds like that is a YES!

John, Ego has designed their tools such that all the tools are compatible with all the batteries. A pretty good idea in my opinion. :-)

Ahh, this is a first.  I get to somewhat correct Blue!  Replace with all the batteries with all EGO batteries. 

I'm usually the one with typo's.  :(

Ah yes! Good catch!

That will be my next idea submitted to Ego; add a feature to their tools that lets me use them with whatever batteries I have laying around... from my Makita drill batteries to a potato with copper and nickel strips inserted, these tools should just run!

Maybe a mower with a massive solar panel so I can cut my grass in the shade! :-)
