When more than one row is combined, the rows of battery cells are connected in ‘PARALLEL’. Arranging enough cells together in series delivers the required voltage (V). Adding an identical number of cells in parallel delivers more capacity and higher power (W). How does EGO ensure the highest battery cell quality? We only use high quality cells from premium manufacturers.
We test and select every single cell before they’re used in the EGO Power+ 56V ARC Lithium™ battery. How does EGO ensure the highest battery performance? The cells are continuously controlled by software and microprocessors within the battery and by our tools’ intelligent power management systems. How does the EGO Power+ 56V ARC Lithium™ Battery manage heat? Our unique Arc design maximizes surface area, so heat dissipates more effectively, every cell is surrounded by our unique Keep Cool™ phase change material (PCM) keeps individual cells at their optimum temperature for longer, and the battery software monitors the heath of each battery. Only 56V can provide the optimal voltage and necessary power for the most demanding commercial & residential equipment. Our 56V system gives our consumer flexibility in terms of battery weight, power and cost. Are EGO batteries compatible with all EGO Products?

This guy wants to change the world by getting as many people as possible to put a turtle on their heads.
The story of how Lynn Johnson plans to change the world starts with him getting into a nasty ski accident in Purgatory, which is a town in Colorado. But his torn ACL doesn't matter—the important thing is that while he was injured, he bought a hat in the shape of a turtle, and this altered his life forever. Strangers would wave hello or laugh when they saw him. Johnson, now 63, is a former minister and used to be a principal at a Christian school; he's got the kind of corny, Midwestern charm that can crowbar a smile out of just about anyone. He'd make jokes about his hats and came up with little sayings like, "You cannot be rude when wearing a turtle, not only would it be impolite, you will also look stupid," and, "Come out of your shell, wear a turtle!" The turtle hat became Johnson's signature look, a conversation starter.
"I can't say I've made intimate friends because of the hat, but it makes cab drivers smile," Johnson, who lives in Indiana, told VICE.
