Why does my battery only last 15 mins on turbo and 20 on the reg speed? I have to do projects in phases while waiting for the battery to charge!!! I was tired of dragging an extension cord all over so I thought cordless was the way to go, but now I'm not so sure!??

10 to 15 minutes is normal for turbo mode..... No surprise here...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Low battery run time!.

I forgot to add that my lack of battery time is on my new ego blower. I thought they were suppose to last longer?

Hi Stacy,
The 2.0 Ah battery run time on LOW should be up to 60 minutes. On HIGH, the run time is approximately 18 minutes and with consistent TURBO button usage, the run time is approximately 10 minutes. Keep in mind that use of the TURBO button will deplete the battery faster.  We hope this helps.  If this is not what you are seeing with your blower, please give us a call so we can troubleshoot a bit more with you.  We can be reached at 1-855-346-5656 Monday through Friday from 8:30AM - 8:00PM EST (Saturday and Sunday from 10:00AM - 6:00PM EST).
