Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MowingLouisuana Good battery!
I bought the lawn mower on sale at the end of the season. The first battery got through 3 mowing seasons. In south Louisiana, that's about 9 months of weekly use. I do have a small area to mow, maybe 40x40 all together, but I think it would be fine on a larger lot? On occasion I forget to charge it and can mow the yard two weeks in a row on one charge. When the first battery gave out, I ordered a new one and was mowing within a week! It came right to my front door. I know these things aren't meant to last forever, but I think I got lots of value from the first battery and expect to keep going with this new one for several more years.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BB33 Very poor design, very poor performance, and very dissappointing customer support
This is a very poor design. The charger does not have an automatic cut off, so you wind up over charging, and thus ruin your battery life. It really can't be avoided unless you babysit your lawnmower while charging it. But even when you take extra care to not over charge, the $99 batteries will still only last for one year. Initially HD did not even stock the replacement battery. I had to buy my first replacement from Batteries+. Homelite created a piece of junk in this one and did nothing to stand behind their product. I've since read many technical reviews and it is unanimous that this product should have never been put to market. I believe now that is has been pulled from their lineup, so hopefully no one else will get suckered in.

It works and was easy to install. Phone help on de-installation of old battery was good too. Could have had information on recycling, though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Throckmorton Ultimately, it turned out to be a good purchase.
Lawnmower battery ultimately turned out to be a good one after considerable difficulty getting the battery to Juneau, Alaska. It took 3 1/2 weeks. Shannon, the customer service manager at the Juneau Home Depot was the sole reason that I was successful in getting the battery. After returning to the store for the second time, I decided to get my feelings off my chest. I bitched long and loud. Shannon, to her credit, decided she could help. With the store manager's approval, she was able to get the battery shipped from South Carolina (I believe) and now I have a working Homelite lawnmower. Bravo, Shannon, and bravo, Home Depot.!!!

The first battery lasted four years, which was about what I was expecting from a good lead battery. I tried the cheaper option of replacing the batteries in the battery unit, and that started really well, but after just a few months the batteries started discharging really quickly. This battery is lasting really well, through two cuttings of my yard between charges (I've a small suburban yard, St. Augustine grass). The cordless electric lawn mower purchase was an experiment for me and I think it has been worth it, although the batteries are still more expensive than I'd prefer, compared to the gas option. I was very pleased to see a replacement battery offered by Home Depot, it wasn't always that way.

just drop in battery compartment in Homelite mower,plug in charger to mower,then other end to wall outlet, and charge for 17 hours.
Wish they still made this mower as it is lightweight(i take battery out) and easy to use and adjust,plus very inexpensive compared to Ego or Black & Decker. But lack of popularity,customers not charging them properly and lack of support from Homelite,killed this nice and simple cordless lawnmower.
Thank you Home Depot. for still carrying a replacement battery online !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrandmaM Replacement battery
Glad it was available for home delivery/UPS. No loading and unloading in the car, it is heavy.
Usually lasts 2 years, and some may think that is expensive, but no cords and no gas to tote.
This is my third battery.
