Can I use my trimmer battery for the mower? I see the trimmer battery is only 2.0A so I'm assuming it won't provide long enough power. Home depot is selling a returned( without the battery) unused mower. Originally priced at $499 they are asking $299 but the damn battery cost about $200 bucks so not a good deal to me. Thanks

All of Ego's tools and chargers are interchangeable, but you're right, the Ah rating reflects how long a charge lasts. The 2.0 Ah battery would only give you about 20 minutes of runtime in the mower. (I do use my trimmer battery from time to time to trim part of my front yard.)

That said, you can buy the 5.0 Ah battery from Amazon.com for $219.
