I already have your 14" chain saw. I am not sure what amp the battery is. I want to get the leaf blower. Does the amperage of the battery matter if I want to swap batteries between the chain saw and leaf blower?

Hi Rick! All of our batteries are interchangeable among EGO tools. Some of our customers recommend using a more powerful battery to optimize run time and/or performance, whereas others prefer to use smaller batteries just out of concern for weight and ease-of-use. To answer your question, amperage is really only going to matter in terms of personal preference.

To expand on what Amber wrote, the rating is actually amp-hours, not amperage. This is probably an oversimplification, but it's mostly a rating of the storage capacity of the battery --- i.e., how long you can run it between charges.
