I bought this just yesterday with some trepidation after reading bad reviews of these battery trimmers, but thought that if it didn't work for me, then it must be a piece of junk, which I was pleasantly surprised to find otherwise. We have a modest house on a quarter acre, and trimming is the driveway, walkway, around a planter in front, and all the way around the fenced in back yard. Not a ton, but I figured I'd be happy if the two batteries included were sufficient. Turns out they were more than. I charged both batteries for over 8 hours and didn't even use up one completely for the whole job, front and back. I must say I love the instant-on, no-mess electric deal without having to mess with an extension cord, and if I ever get any other Black and Decker 18V tools, I can use my batteries with them. This isn't the product for you if you've got a huge yard or are whacking through an acre of weeds, but for the normal middle-class house with average trimming needs, this is the perfect trimmer.
