I like this trimmer but since the battery is over your shoulder when using the it you can't tell when the battery is getting depleted. If the trimmer stops after starting I assume the battery is getting low but by the time I put the trimmer in a position to see the light on the battery it is off. When I press the button to see condition it's green - trim again and it starts then stops. If I put the trimmer in a non-usage position so I can see the light it is indeed red when on. Maybe in the future designs leave the red light on longer? The battery indicator is easily visible on all my other EGO tools except for this trimmer.
