I just got my ego power station and I thought I read this somewhere but I can't find it now can I just leave the batteries on the generator charging until I need them or should I disconnect the charger after it reaches full charged? Sorry about repeating I just couldn't find the answer again.
Kris, theoretically, it's fine to leave the batteries in, but out of habit, I removed them once charged. I have 5 batteries to rotate and use them year round, so they really don't stay idle very long. The recommendation is to partially charge a battery for long term storage at around 30%.
I would be a little concerned if I purchased the Power Station for, say, winter storm battery back-up (e.g. to run my oil-fired boiler, some lights, etc.) to replace my gasoline generator: With the advice given, wouldn't I run the risk of the batteries only being at a 30% charge at the very time I need them?
Alan, I'm not an occasional user; all 5 of my EGO batteries are rotated and used year round. Once one is depleted, it's fully charged and placed back into rotation. That 30% status occurs if it sits idle for an extended period, probably for users with one tool that is a seasonal use like a mower. I have tools of several brand and are used year round; my yard keeps me busy.
