Thank you for your excellent question.  You may know that battery life is usually measured in terms of recharge cycles. It is nearly impossible to predict the number of cycles your battery will produce because of varying environmental conditions. We do have a 3 (three) year warranty on all batteries and chargers, so you can feel confident knowing your battery will be protected in the unlikely event that it doesn’t function properly in those first three years of ownership.

I've deleted my previous post as I now know what to ask to get a direct answer.

Is the battery pack made up of  (14) 4 Volt cells?   If not please state the number of cells and cell voltage used.

Thanks for your question. Yes, our EGO Power+ 56V Battery 2.0 Ah is comprised of 14 4-volt cells. The EGO Power+ 56V Battery 4.0 Ah is comprised of 28 4-volt cells and will run approximately twice as long as the 2.0 Ah battery.

after a little research, I have learned that lithium ion batteries last longer when recharged often and that you shouldn't wait until they are fully discharged. with proper care, they should last a long time.

Can you tell me the estimated life of the battery? The approximate $200 replacement cost is giving me second thoughts about purchasing the backback blower if I am looking at replacing the battery in just a few years as I have had to do with other battery powered tools.
Thank you
