1. Store your EGO Power+ outdoor power equipment in any enclosed space that will protect it from the elements.
2. Charge your battery, remove it from the charger and tuck them both away inside your home or another heated space.
What is the minimum DIScharge temperature? If I am using my EGO battery-powered devices on cold days (below freezing -- perhaps some late leaf-blowing), is there a minimum OPERATING temperature, below which I should not use the device, to avoid damage to the battery?
Having them "drain" after months of being stored wrong is of absolutely no value. It's like putting a little fresh paint on a car that has rust holes straight through the body. The advice is wrong, no if's, and's, or butt's. Sorry.
Good evening Eric,
I believe they discharge after 30 days. It isn't months. I didn't use one of my 2ah batteries and after about a month, it was at 30%'ish according to my quick charger. Also, don't forget that EGO has a really good warranty on the battery. 3 years is long.
I'm not a gung ho all EGO consumer, I shop all of the brands. But, I believe that EGO has the best track record handling warranty and customer service issues. They don't treat people as idiots and care about their customers.
I guess at this point, we'll see after a few years how well their built in discharge/storage algorithm works. Register your products and keep your receipts :)
So I'm all psyched about getting an Ego snowblower next year. So psyched that I need to make room for it.
Hmm... I have a 10x20 garage that's already bursting at the seams and no floor space is available. There's no way I'm storing it under the deck where my old forced mower used to go. What to do?
How about taking the advantages of an electric lawnmower one step farther:
Now I have a lawnmower sized void where my snowblower can go. Problem solved! :-)
