Not kidding about fast charge times

I had been leaving the 4AH battery on the "fast" charger until it was completely full before finishing a mowing job (one charge isn't quite enough for our particular lawn), but out of impatience today I decided to see whether the "15 minutes will get you a half charge" claim was actually true.  From a complete auto-shutoff of the mower from lack of charge, a half-charge 15 or so minutes later gave me at least 20 minutes of mowing, which was enough to finish what I was doing.  I've never seen batteries charge so quickly.  I do hope the "high tech charger not killing the lifespan of the batteries" claim is equally correct, though I won't be able to verify that for quite some time.

(A spare battery would eliminate the need for fast charging completely, but the marginal utility of having a spare on the charger ready to swap out isn't really worth an extra $200.  Maybe if the kids start using it as a neighborhood low-noise mowing business!)
