Using ego battery in Australia bought in USA.
Want to buy ego blower LB5302 that comes with a spare battery at Home Depot. It’s half the price of the same unit in Australia where I will use the unit. Is there an issue recharging the battery between USA and Australia with voltage? I already have a rapid charger at home in Australia. Thanks

According to Wikipedia:

Australia is 230v and uses a different plug, so a USA market charger won’t work there. I don’t see why a USA battery wouldn’t charge on an Australia charger though? Maybe check with Ego Customer Service to confirm.
