Battery life is somewhat decent. I got about 30 minutes of use out of one battery with a few minutes break in-between. Highly suggested to have a spare battery charged and ready to go while you are using this. There is no option to connect a cord to it, only battery.
The batteries are interchangeable with other 18 volt B&D tools, which is a huge plus. I have the complete set of blower, weed whacker and this trimmer. If you need a complete set, check out the Lawn Care set. That comes with a 3 battery charger (3 batteries) and hanging kit to organize the tools.
The charger that is supplied with it is a "dummy" charger. It does not know when the battery is full and you have to keep an eye on how long you have had it plugged in. Recommendations are to not have it charged for more than 8 hours. I normally charge my battery in the morning and then use it in the afternoon.
All in all, this is a great trimmer. It is silent and powerful. You can get a lot of work done without worrying about disturbing your neighbors because it makes very little sound.
I highly recommend this tool.
I debated whether to get the Worx brand but went with the Black & Decker because of better reviews. Have used this trimmer for two months now and love the freedom it provides!!! No more lugging out the 75 foot extension cord and hauling it all around the front and back yard, plugging it in here, there & everywhere. Trimming trees & hedges is SO much less of a chore now that I've gone cordless. I have about 10 smaller pine trees, numerous low shrubs, several long rows of hedges and a few other assorted plants in the yard that I like to keep trimmed. Because I can whip this baby out whenever the urge hits to shape things up, I might do a few shrubs one day, and maybe the hedges the following week and nothing gets overgrown or out of control. Plenty of power to get the job done and because it's cordless, it is much easier, and safer (!) to maneuver up, down and all around any of the greenery.
I would like to add that I'm a woman in my early 50s & slightly over 5 feet tall, and find this tool to be the perfect size. It isn't too heavy, bulky or cumbersome. Overall, this is one of the smarter purchases I've made.
