This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: USB Charging Accessory Idea

Hello,

I own the EGO mower, as well as the blower and 13" weed wacker.  I also have a couple of 2 AH batteries, the 4 AH battery, and a soon to be owned 7.5 AH battery which I just ordered online.  A few days ago, we lost our power due to thunderstorms in the area and it dawned on me that I am sitting on massive 56 volt lithium ion batteries that are charged but useless for typical household uses - such as charging cellphones, tablets, or running small LED lights/lamps.


I'd like to recommend that Chevron/EGO explores making an accessory for the batteries that offers 2.5 to 10 watt USB ports at 1.5 - 5 amps of current on it so users can use their batteries to power small electronics - especially in the event of an emergency.  Offering customers such an accessory is sure to be a hit and will find many uses around the house or outdoors (camping, etc).  Virtually all small electronics are charged via USB these days, and there are a lot of USB LED lights and lamps that are also available.  We need to be able to tap into our EGO batteries!


Please consider this!

Thanks

Hi D, we like your idea too. We had a similar thread asking for a possible USB component in our battery as well.  Great minds think alike!  We'll be sure to update you here if this comes to fruition in the future.
