This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Three Electric Contacts vs Four on the EGO Blower.

For the LM2000-S, how many prongs should there be on the inside battery chamber of the mower? My battery has four slots, but my mower only has three prongs (I'm concerned one is missing).

Official Response
This question has come up before:

Three Electric Contacts vs Four on the EGO Blower

The official answer:
"This is normal and not a production defect. Some... generations of blowers were made with 3 contacts while [others] were made with 4. There is absolutely nothing to worry about. Keep in mind that we stand behind our products and if you happen to have an issue, our 5 year (3 year on battery & charger) warranty will be there to help you!"

(Original answer above edited to reflect later correction):
"Different versions of the blower have been produced with either the 3 or 4 contacts (not necessarily first or later generations)."

There is some additional unofficial technical information and speculation on the original thread for those who may be interested.
