Rapid Charger vs Standard Charger

Jennifer, when I bought my new EGO Backpack Blower, I received a "Standard Charger" with the kit and a 5.0 Ah battery.  The EGO 21" Non SP mower with a 5.0 Ah battery got a "Rapid Charger."  So here are my questions:

  1. How does EGO determines the criteria for which OPE should have a "Rapid Charger?"
  2. Shouldn't all 5.0 Ah and above "automatically" come with a "Rapid Charger?"

Hi David, this kit was a tough one.  We try to consider the best possible value when configuring kits.  All handheld kits so far have included the standard charger, while all mowers have included the rapid charger.  We do apologize if this configuration, sold in stores, was not ideal for you, but please check homedepot.com in the coming months for virtual bundles.  We are working to make the backpack blower available online with the rapid charger.
