Battery/ies DO come with it.
Fairly solid construction - it's got plenty of plastic pieces, but they aren't too flimsy or easily breakable.
Battery power and life are excellent. I've got a small to medium-sized yard with a fence around it, and one battery takes care of it all. Just in case it were to run out, the second battery (which comes with, if you choose that option) is on the charger.
There are two battery "modes" - power and battery life - and they do exactly what they sound like. Power mode gives you more cutting power (at the expense of battery life) and battery life gives you longer cutting time (at the expense of cutting power). I've found that the vast majority of my weekly weed whacking needs are taken care of using the battery life mode. You can quickly and easily switch between the two modes if you need a little more oomph.
Battery runs about 20-30 mins (of actual cutting) on the power saving mode, a bit less on power mode. If you find you need more run time or power, you can always upgrade to higher capacity Black+Decker universal battery (available at hardware stores, Amazon, etc).
As for the string/cut wire, there are easily-replaceable pre-loaded heads that simply click into place. From what I've read in other reviews, there are ways you can string it yourself with whatever string you like. Personally, I'll stick with the pre-wounds - I'm 3 weeks into this product and still using the first pre-loaded cartridge that came with it. Plus you can get a three-pack of replacements on Amazon here for about $9 (product number is AF-100-3ZP).
The product description doesn't say this unit has an auto-feed feature, and says it has a button on the handle that releases more string; the button sure does work, but I've found that the unit seems to be auto-feeding itself most of the time too. I've rarely had to to "tell it" to let out more line. It's been quite convenient and thus far hasn't tangled or anything.
Additionally, the unit can be extended to make it taller/shorter. You just twist the lock, shorten or lengthen as-needed, and twist the lock back into place. Very quick and simple.
There is a "safety" on the handle that you need to hold down with the side of your thumb before you can pull the trigger. It's very conveniently placed and doesn't make it hard to use.
My only minor complaint with this unit is the handle (the one mid-way down, not the one with the trigger). It functions just fine, but it's got "lock" points (to set the angle how you like it) that occasionally come loose. It has to be set to one of these three lock points and sometimes, if you've been using it awhile, it'll vibrate out of the lock and slip to the next one. Takes all of about 2 seconds to set it right again, so it's certainly not a deal breaker, just a little annoying when it happens.
I am very happy to report that the positive reviews are right! This is VERY powerful and was able to handle very thick weeds, tall overgrown grass, and also delicate grass. I was also impressed by the edging -- it went very quickly!
We already own a gas-powered trimmer, but it took all my arm strength to just hold the thing... I had no muscles left to aim it! This is so lightweight and relatively quiet. I'm thrilled that now I can trim around the garden and walkways when I need to, instead of nagging my husband.
I purchased the set with 2 batteries which I definitely recommend. They last a very decent amount of time (about 15-20 mins for me before it starts slowing down) so having 2 saves it from being a frustrating experience. I also like that the manual specifically and explicitly states that you can leave the battery on the charger with no ill effects, and encourages you to charge it frequently rather than letting it drain down. It's much more convenient.
In summary, two thumbs up!
Chose two smaller batterie lighter weight/balance. Normal home, 100x120' with lawns and lots of bordering plants and grass edges.
This electric powered has about half the power AND WEIGHT of gas and although less power no problem just slow down on the tall weeds and edge grass. On toughest parts high weeds switched to high power and battery held up to finish.
This light weight more than makes up for slower me and cutting AND self feeding nylon never needed manual button. Note one nylon string cutter rather than two BUT rpm plenty fast to compensate.
Maybe more expensive has power and cutting advantages, this one more than sufficient for our regular lot size single family dwelling!
Long lasting cutting cord and easy string advancement
from the pistol grip.
Works on 12" weeds for about 15mins,then 20volt
battery gets slower&slows to stop in 31 minutes.
Other batterys at higher capacity and less expensive
are on Amazon...
I didn't want to whack for extended time anyway.

Easy to use
Great battery life
Con: I wish it would extend a few inches more
This is the easiest to use weed whacker I've ever had. I have a pretty big property on a corner lot. It takes me about 2hrs to do the lawn, 30mins if using this. 1 battery gets me the entire yard done. If I need to clear out some thick weeds in the ditch, I may use the 2nd battery but I've never used both batteries completely.
The batteries charge pretty fast. I'd guess 2hrs ish.
Perfect for anyone unless you have over 2 acre maybe.
Sad to say, not worth it for me and did not suit my needs. Good if you have a tiny yard.
