Interchangeable batteries for standalone models

I purchased a standalone EGO ST1520 56 volt string trimmer at the beginning of the summer and am very pleased with it. I'm now considering the purchase of an EGO edger. Which of the two edger models has a battery compatible with the string trimmer? I want to be able to swap the 56 volt batteries between the two lawn tools.

All ego batteries work in all ego tools.
Only consideration with hand tools is weight of larger batteries, but as you are going from the string trimmer this should not be an issue.

I would recommend the power head version as it currently sells as a bare tool for $129 with the edger attachment.  Also this gives you the ability to add other attachments in the future.
