    Looking one step further. I feel development of these bad boys has reached the point of feasibility. I know I would be first in this area.

    i get about 2.5-3hrs out of my 2.0ah echo 58v battery in the hedge trimmers. a 4.0ah battery would last 5-6 hrs.

    All good and well, But..
    If in 5-10 yrs electric power equipment is as productive as gas equipment they won't need to make any laws. Ppl will switch over because the market has matured.
    Did they NEED a law for ppl to buy cars? Cell phones? Computers?
    No markets take care of themselves.
    Government needs to get out of the way and let the ppl choose for themselves.
    It will be ok !

    That could be interesting to watch. Might not be a bad thing.
