Works OK when it has power!
Ni-Cad battery died within one year.
This strimmer uses Ni-Cad battery technology which is prone to "memory" effect if it is not fully charged & then discharged regularly. My battery died in the first year & the replacement battery is > £50. Previously I had a FLYMO cordless strimmer & this lasted for years!
Interestingly if you check the Bosch web site they have just re-launched this product including a Lithium ion power pack. Li-ion batteries are far superior to Ni-Cads as they last longer & do not suffer from the memory effect (most laptop computers use Li-ion technology).
