Answer: 
The battery charger is included. It is recommended to be recharged after every use. I just plug mine in and leave it till we mow again in 4-5 days. The battery lasts my entire large yard along with drive and curb edge if I use power level 1. It is recommended to not keep out in the fall/winter cold (below 40 degrees F) or extreme heat (above 105 degrees F).

Auto feed

How is the auto feed on this? I currently have an older Black & Decker Grass Hog with an auto feed spool and it is horrible. No matter how careful I am to reload the spool, it never auto feeds properly or it jams. So I dread using it and I'm leary of getting another trimmer with an auto feed spool.

Answer: 
My auto feed works fantastic. Just hang on to the small piece and insert into the hole and snap in. No need to pull out farther when starting. And this sure beats having to reload a typical gas trimmer line over and over. It sounds like too much line was let loose when putting into the housing.

Answer: 
I usually just charge mine overnight. Power level 1 is strong enough and makes the battery last a long time; enough to do my large yard. I keep it plugged in until we mow and trim again sometimes 4-5 days later. Otherwise I have recharged it for a few hours to do extra trimming if I forgot to use power level 1.

20-Volt Max Lithium-Ion 2-Speed String Trimmer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid for my Yard I hated dealing with my corded trimmer, and I don't have a big enough yard to deal with a gas trimmer, so I gave this rechargeable B&D a chance. I have a small yard, and it works well. For most trimming I use the low setting to save battery life, and it does just fine around the rocks, poles, posts, etc. I only switch to high for edging my sidewalk. I can get probably 40-45 minutes out of a charge, so I can't trim the yard and edge the sidewalk. But I can do one or the other. The auto-feed is great and becomes a time-saver; I'm over dealing with bump-feed. I waited a couple months to review this, to myself time to assess it completely. I'm happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Received this for Father's Day Already had the hedge clippers that use the same battery (love those too). This thing works great. Got a 1/2 acre lawn and use up a battery and a half usually. Has more power than you would think. I use the edger wheel a lot for the driveway, walkways, and front curb - its a nice feature. Two seconds to flip from edger wheel back to normal trimming. This trimmer will cut into the dirt nicely to give you an edge. Not quite as powerful as a gas trimmer, but the ease of use / low maintenance factor of this thing is more valuable to me than having the strongest trimmer on the block. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Battery died after 2 months Works well when the battery is charged, but as all others have complained, the battery life is very short between charges and the spools run out fast. Can barely get through trimming out behind the fence before it needed recharging. Then the battery quit altogether after 2 months, won't charge at all anymore. Just cheap Chinese junk when Black & Decker moved to China. My old USA-built B&D tools still run fine. Am done with this brand. Why should I have to pay extra for a 2-year extended warranty at checkout? Because it can't be expected to last more than 2 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd year This has been my second year of use and this trimmer is still going strong. The battery and trimmer function are still running like new. I trim about a 1/3 acre lawn using the trimmer for about 45 minutes at a time and never any problems. The original string is still installed and cuts very well . I would buy another one and highly recommend this trimmer. I'm a senior citizen and the light weight is perfect for all the old foggies!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery charge not up to par for even a standard sized job The quality and durability of the unit itself is decent enough, however, the battery doesn't last anywhere near as long as I expected it would. Would be great for those in a patio home or some type of smaller yard, but anyone who actually has a regular sized year will either have to get a 2nd battery to complete the job in one setting or plan out a block where you can get about 1/2 of it done and then do the 2nd half several hours later or the next day. Guess the Lithium-ion battery technology still isn't quite there yet. Would not recommend for anyone other than the tiniest yards mentioned above

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! I bought this trimmer for my son so he can start learning how to take care of a lawn. It's a great trimmer if you are looking for something lightweight and easy to use . It's power is good for it being one string in oppose to other two string edgers. If you're looking into have a good electric edger and not spending more this one is for you. I also recommend to use number 1 power . There's a option of choosing 1 or 2 , 2 is of course powerful but drains the battery. I just cut my edges with the 2 and my battery drained just when I was about done . With the 1 set on I never drained my battery .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cordless choice This Black & Decker LST522 trimmer / edger is a nice cordless trimmer with excellent features. The trimmer can be rotated with the twist of the wrist so that it performs as an edger; it comes with an edger wheel attached. The trimmer speed can be set at 1 for longer battery usage or 2 for more power. The length of the shaft can also be adjusted with a simple twist. I am 6’ 1” tall and fully extended is best for me. The D shaped handle angle can be adjusted with just the push of a button. The cutting head is the single string type. It uses the Model No. AF-100 replacement spool filled with .065 inch (1.65 mm) round nylon mono-filament line. It comes with a full spool already installed. Assembly is very easy and only consisted of simply pushing the plastic guard into a slot and securing with a single screw. A single 20-Volt 2.5AH Lithium-Ion battery is included. The battery charger that is included is very compact and it takes about 3-5 hours to recharge the battery. With a total weight of less than 8 pounds the trimmer is light weight but it still feels sturdy. It is ideal for trimming borders and edging sidewalks as well as drive ways. I get about 30-55 minutes of moderate to light trimming from one charge. If you have been using a gas or plug in type trimmer you will love the convenience and comfort of this versatile cordless trimmer. Based on my experience I recommend it as a good choice for the smaller suburban lawn. I have provided photos and a short demo video, I hope they help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from String Trimmer THIS TRIMMER IS A GOOD FIT FOR THE LIGHT DUTY GENERAL EDGE TYPE AND GRASS TRIMMING RERQUIRED TO MAINTAIN MY LAWN. IT WILL ALSO HANDLE ANY WEEDS THAT ARE TYPICAL AROUND THE EDGES OF MOST YARDS. RUN TIME HAS NOT BEEN AN ISSUE AS THERE IS SUFFICIENT BATTERY POWER FOR MY USE. POWER HAS BEEN THERE FOR UP TO AN HOUR OF LIGHT DUTY USE.
