Will the leaf blowers ever be adaptable to the larger mower battery?
I LOVE the mower and would like to try the blower, but after reading too many reviews regarding lack of power in the blower I'll wait. It seems like a no-brainer to make the larger battery interchangeable rather than having to buy 2 batteries and two chargers.

All of the batteries and chargers ARE interchangeable, that is one of the best things about having multiple tools and batteries!

Now whether you want to lug around the size and weight of the 7.5Ah battery, that is up to you. I don't like using the 4.0Ah battery on my handheld tools for very long, but I'm sure it can be done if that's important to you.

Personally, I think the 5.0Ah battery is probably the best balance of extended run time and manageable size/weight, as it is the same as my 4.0Ah battery but runs for 25% longer.

Donald, as David said, all Ego batteries are compatible with all tools and all chargers.  You can put the smallest battery (2.0Ah) in the biggest tool (mower) and it works just fine, and vice versa.  You just need to decide how much weight you're willing to handle.

Regarding your comment on the blower lacking power, I "think" what you're referring to is the short run-time when used with the included 2.0Ah battery and with liberal use of the highest Turbo output mode.

Power from the blower is the same regardless which battery you choose, only the run-time will change based on the battery capacity.  I.E., the 4.0Ah pack should run the blower for about twice as long as the 2.0Ah pack, and the 7.5Ah pack will run the blower until your arm is about ready to fall off. :-)
