I am in the market for an EGO string trimmer.  While considering the purchase I note that I can have two of these units, each with the standard charger and standard battery for the cost of purchasing one unit and a backup 4.0 amp battery?  I think it would make sense for you to market a package with a backup 4.0 amp battery below the cost of two standard units.  Most people, in my opinion will want a second battery charged and ready to go with this unit.

Hi Albert, I made the mistake of buying my trimmer and blower with the included battery and charger.  I ended up purchasing a 2nd 4ah battery to go along with the one with my mower.  I won't touch the 2ah batteries. 

I think the 4ah battery should be standard, and just up the price "a little".  The 2ah battery just doesn't make sense with these tools.  The heavier battery just balances it all out.

If you have very little trimming to do, then then it is a tough decision.  I do think the price points are a bit rough.  Knowing what I know now, I would have purchased without the battery and charger.
