The only thing that I was able to find, was via click here Not really a review, more of a product description.

Perhaps this product is re-badged under another name!.

Going on personal experiences with rechargeable garden products, the item must have a fast recharging high capacity rate, otherwise it can be a very tedious venture.

Although it's not an answer to your question I too had a rechargable lawn mower (Black and Decker) and it's been used once because it was so hard to do, I suppose if you've got a really small, flat lawn then they're o.k. but if you've got quite a large lawn with a few bumps here and there then I would think carefully and maybe consider a petrol mower.

I used to work in a Garden Centre and I endorse what tillybaby has said.

Go stand in the corner, put on dunces cap and write 100 lines -- 'I must not play the goat'
and stop looking so sheepish.

Have you considered a small Flymo?

Agreed you need a cord from a power point, but they are much lighter to use than a petrol job and you can get long cords on reels for not much. Rechargeable jobs are not a good idea because they just don't the business

I purchased an Eckman from a webseller, rubbish... Jams on small stones and twigs, blade appears to be made from Cheese, I have to then hammer it straight, yes seriously.... buy a Bosch Rotary if you really want a cordless.

I agree with Ticmick regarding Bosch, my neighbour has this on click here and I have used it a couple of times to cut his grass when he has been away. Very powerful but you do need two batteries if the lawn is of any size.
