How's everyone's EGO batteries holding up?
I got 3 batteries almost 2 years ago, used only in 1 tool, the line trimmer. I estimate about 50 hours of run time on each battery or about 100-150 charge cycles.
Original batteries have degraded and seeing various issues-
- Run time is only about 1/3 to 1/2 of what they were new.
- Seem to discharge by themselves quite often, if not used for a couple of days charge will be very low or completely flat again
- 1 battery completely died and failed to charge after about 12 months, replaced under warranty, then died again about 12 months later, replaced again.
So I have 1 new battery which has been replaced twice and two older ones which are now almost useless. Considering only about 100-150 charge cycles it's not great. Something to consider especially if you are running the mower a lot or multiple EGO tools I can see the need for the batteries to be replaced often. Think their battery warranty is 2 years, no idea if this covers normal degradation during this time or what the warranty is for commercial, but must also consider the painful EGO warranty process.
