The new batteries in these mowers (Lithium Ion) have proved themselves already in the computer world, powering laptops for much longer periods than the older Nickel Cadmium types. They are free of the memory effect, that stopped the older batteries being fully charged. BUT! Gardening is outdoors. A different kettle of fish. They will have to withstand cold temperatures, hot temperatures, vibration, moisture, winter neglect and careless handling shock damage, in fact everything that in the electronics world will cause failure!
The weight problem
With any motor powered by batteries, you will gain freedom from cables, but you have to lug those heavy batteries around, fortunately technology has improved in leaps and bounds, with batteries getting lighter for the same power capability. As with all new technology you have to weigh up whether the advantages are worth it.
