How about a jump starter for a car? Should be a relatively simple application for the larger 7.5Ah battery

I have a feeling that those handheld Li-Ion jump starters put their battery cells through hell... 400A @ 12V is 4800W, or about 2.5X what Ego’s snowblower is designed to draw from two 4Ah or greater batteries. I somehow doubt this application would fit with Ego’s three year battery warranty. ;-)

I like this idea.  Make it a power station / jump starter / air compressor combination. 

Jump starting a car might be hard on the battery but it's rare use and only for a few seconds in emergencies.

Can it have a Kurig side spout so I can get a cup of coffee.  Heck with the air compressor available it can make me a latte ;)
