I paid $75 for a second 80V battery that lasts 40 minutes in my snow blower or over an hour in my chain saw, and recharges in 30 minutes. What's wrong with that? I hear lots of noise here from people that apparently have not used what they're commenting on. I purchased my Greenworks blower used for $100 including a battery and charger. Both batteries are still fully functional and recharge quickly. I did this driveway (and my deck and walkways) and this load of wood with just one battery. I can do my grass trimming for 3 weeks (about 15 minutes each time) on one battery, as well.like i said the cost and battery technology is just not there yet. the price of batteries need to come down a lot if they really want battery powered machines to take off. the batteries for most machines or equipment just cost way too much.
