I own the Ego mower with the large 7.5Ah battery.  I know the literature says I can use this battery with any Ego tools, but will it be too heavy to easily use with a string trimmer or a leaf blower?

It’s a matter of personal preference, but I think most people would agree the largest battery is a bit heavy to be using for extended periods on the smaller handheld tools.

One of the smaller batteries can be had for a very small premium over the cost of buying a bare tool when you consider the kit price, and would be a good investment if smaller tools are in your arsenal.
