1- Will we see them in the US also in 2018?
2- Will there be a 1 series 3.0Ah pack and a 3 series 9.0Ah pack replacing the 2.5Ah and 7.5Ah packs?
Would be nice! The high draw 3,000mAh 18650 have been out for a while (from all mainstream manufacturers I believe... LG, Samsung SDI, Panasonic...), and their max draw is now proven to be equal or near equal to the very reliable and durable 2,500mAh INRs. Suited for power tools applications.
Extrapolating... a 9.0Ah in the brushless mower would probably returns a good 75min cut time, or would reduce your cycle count (vs a 7.4Ah) if your yard is small.. so longer life battery. And a good hour in fair snow with a pair of 9.0Ah in the snowblower :) I like it!!!
Don't forget to keep these big babies at 50% for extended shelf storage! They will be expensive toys you will not want to replace too often ;) (by the way, will EGO finally add some sort of state of charge indicator on the batteries ;) )
