Overview of the EGO POWER+ LB5302

The EGO POWER+ LB5302 in use

The EGO POWER+ LB5302

  • Power: This cordless leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 530 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 110 MPH.
  • Power delivery: If you don’t like dealing with cords, you will be delighted to know that this blower is equipped with a brushless, battery-operated motor.
  • Battery: Its 2.5 Ah 56 V Li-ion POWER+ battery (1 BA1400 battery included) means that a user can operate the POWER+ LB5302 for an estimated 75 minutes on a full charge. More info on the POWER+ battery can be found below.
  • Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. All told (including the battery), it weighs 7.5 lbs — the EGO POWER+ LB5302 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest cordless handheld blower on the market.
  • Speed Settings: Not all jobs need full power. The POWER+ LB5302 has 3 speed settings so, you can blow more or less air from the blower depending on the job.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 64 dB, the POWER+ LB5302 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

The EGO POWER+ LB5302's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the EGO POWER+ LB5302 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Maxing out at 110 MPH at full power, this blower is on the lower end in terms of air speed for battery-operated handheld blowers. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Makita XBU01PT, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 208 MPH.
  • The POWER+ LB5302 is powerful, with an airflow rating of 530 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the EGO LB7654, with 765 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Thanks to its autonomy of up to 75 mins, the POWER+ LB5302 benefits from a higher run time than many cordless handheld units. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Toro 51822 can run for up to 140 minutes and could be worth considering.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the EGO POWER+ LB5302 is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this blower nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.

POWER+ Battery Technology

EGO's POWER+ technology is based on a high-end patented ARC Lithium™ design which utilizes a third row of cells to achieve high-voltage performance. Combined with a revolutionary phase-change material which envelopes each cell, the arc-design of the cell's arrangement allows for more efficient cooling and an optimum power distribution across all rows of cells. This technology also embeds a patented power management system that monitors and optimizes each individual battery cell to maximize its power, performance, and runtime. Moreover, the battery casing is completely sealed and has an enhanced shock and weather resistivity. Thus, the battery is protected from drops, rain and the elements.

  • In the expected price range

Questions & Answers

On the LB5302. The speed switch on the front of the handle can go from a 10 O' clock to a 2 O' Clock position. What are the non-turbo CFM's in either of those two positions. Is the advertised length of use of 75 minutes only relevant when the switch is in the 10 O' Clock position. (Asked October 10, 2021)

The non-turbo CFM of the unit is 250-400. The advertised length of use of 75 minutes is at the lowest speed. Length of use is around 22 minutes at high speed, and 10 minutes at turbo speed.

    Battery didn’t have as much capacity. I did use the turbo booster, as I have turf and wanted to clean out the debris. Was easy to handle, a lot more balanced than my old Toro. I don’t think it has as much power as the Toro, however, the Toro is a corded blower, and I am 72 with back problems, so I found just snapping the battery on and getting the job done without having to wind and unwind electrical cord was nice. The box was delivered to my vehicle in curbside pick up by the hardware store, not sealed, no owners manual so when I contacted the hardware store, they suggested I should go online and print a manual. I think the unit had been purchased and returned by another customer, seems kind of flaky to not be mfg. sealed and missing the owners manual.

    + PROS: somewhat lighter than my old corded blower.
    - CONS: doesn't hold charge for long.

    Had a Toro corded blower which I hardly used – cord was more of a pain than I envisioned. Purchased LB5302 on sale this spring for $159 with battery. Build quality is very good – feels solid although lightweight at 7.3 pounds with the battery. Already had an EGO string trimmer so now we have a second battery for backup power. Use it primarily for blowing clumped grass after mowing and kicking the blower into Turbo mode provides more than enough power for stubborn clumps or displaced mulch. Purchased the optional nozzle to help achieve stronger airflow. I have neighbors with very loud backpack or handheld blowers that I find annoying. This is really no louder than the Toro electric at high speeds. Have not yet had a chance to try in on light snow but it’s quiet enough that I wouldn’t be afraid to use it early in the morning on a work day. I would consider getting a strap if I were going to use it for more than 20 minutes.

    + PROS: More than adequate power to move debris Lighter than gas models Convenient - no power cords Relatively quiet
    - CONS: None significant
