Which trimmer do you have

What are you having trouble with that makes you conclude it is useless.

Really do not thing the battery output changes much with use, it pretty much goes from full power to off when fully depleted.

My 15" trimmer runs about the same with a freshly charged battery as it does with a nearly discharged battery. I say "about" since I can't tell the difference but that doesn't mean there is no difference.

I'd guess that if it's noticeably slower or less powerful as the battery wears down there might be something wrong with it, in which case it has a 3 year warranty.

BTW, there's no need for the language.

The RPM is listed on Page 9 of the owner's manual: 4,000 to 5,800 rpm.

I haven't detected a noticeable slowing until just before the battery depletes completely. Maybe the last 30 seconds or so.
