Q: Re: Snow Joe Ion 18SB Rechargeable cordless single stage snow remover. Is it possible to take the battery out and charge the battery and then put it back into the snow remover. Please let me know. Thank you.
by Eileen Finnegan from Delaware on December 15, 2013

A: Eileen - yes, the battery on the Snow Joe iON18SB can be removed from the snow blower when you need to charge it.
by Joe, Product Expert
Q: Is it possible to operate the blower connected to power outlet after the battery completely discharges?
by Alex from Massachusetts on December 05, 2013

A: Alex - sorry, but the Snow Joe iON18 will not operate off of direct electrical current. This unit will only run off the 40-volt battery.
by Joe, Product Expert
Q: How many inches of heavy snow can it move?
by John from Massachusetts on September 25, 2013

A: The Snow Joe iOn is can easily handle up to 8 inches of light, fluffy snow and can throw snow up to 20 feet. This snow blower is not really intended to handle heavy or wet snow.
by Joe, Product Expert
Q: Is there extra batteries available ? Can they be changed in the field to keep the crews working or would it be too difficult?
by Bill Hack from Illinois on September 09, 2013

A: Bill - the replacement battery is listed in the "ACCESSORIES" tab. They sell for $149.99. The battery is extremely simple to change out. No different than changing the battery on a cordless drill.
by Joe, Product Expert
Q: Bob - What's the charge time for a fully discharged battery?
by Steve from Maryland on September 09, 2013

A: Steve - charging time for the battery on the Snow Joe iON18SB is approximately 3 hours.
by Joe, Product Expert
Q: Are the 40 volt batteries compatible with any other brand?
by Doug from Wisconsin on September 09, 2013

A: Doug - the EcoSharp battery used in the Snow Joe iON18SB is only compatible with Snow Joe and Sun Joe 40-volt products. The battery will not work in any other brand tools.
by Joe, Product Expert
Q: Is the Snow Joe iON self propelled?
by Bob Belknap from Washington on August 28, 2013

A: Bob - the new Snow Joe iON is not self-propelled. You would need to push it to move it.

Attention all earth lovers. If you want your carbon foot print to be minimal but need a electric single stage snow blower that has the muscle to clear 8” of snow without the hassle of being tethered to a wall outlet. Look no further than the Snow Joe iON18SB.

The Snow Joe iON18SB is a 40 volt, lithium ion powered, one of a kind piece of snow removal equipment. The blower will run up to about 40 minutes at full power not fading or slowing up for even a second.

Good For Moderate Amounts Of Snow
I bought this as an experiment to see how well a cordless snow blower could work. My guess was that it should be able to handle the amount of snow that we usually receive where I live. Unfortunately this year we've received a lot more snow than usual!

The first few storms that I used it on were all under six inches, and this did a good job of clearing off my driveway. It turns out my driveway was a bit larger than could be done on a single battery charge, so I ordered a second battery. ... more

I Guess You Only Had It 1 Season
Well, last winter my wife bought me the ion18SB and it did OK, not great. After 1 snow fall this season it's dead. The swell flashlight works and the chute still rotates, but the blower is dead.

I'm guessing at about 8 snowfalls, this machine cost me $50/use. I could have stayed in my house and paid someone to do the work... Since I'm pretty handy, I'm going to take into my basement and see if I can't figure out what's wrong with it.

As for my review, consider buying something more... more

Great Product. Easy to assemble and moved the snow just as described. Tires could be a bit more heavy duty but would add to the weight.

Walk Fast
Tried it for the first time in 3 inches of light fluffy snow. Didn't throw the snow more than 2 feet. Packed it up and was ready to send back. My brother told me to push it walking faster, I was going at a very slow pace the first time. Received 4 inches of snow, unpacked it for another try, walked at a faster pace and it threw the snow very far! Love how light it is, carried it around back and cleared the deck, how it starts instantly, doesn't use gas or oil, doesn't take up the entire... more

Having Fun In The Snow.
I wonder whether the plastic parts are going to last, especially the wheels. It's easy to operate and seems to be handling the job, though I haven't had to put it to much of a test yet. I love the color, and it's easy to transport and store.

Good Snowblower
This snow blower is good for light or powdery snow with less than 10 inches of accumulation. The battery life is acceptable.

The machine is lightweight and easily transported. This snow blower is great for small driveways, walkways, and decks.

Not having to deal with gasoline is also a plus.

Great Purchase
I wanted an easy to handle snow blower for my side walks and walkways that was clean and low maintenance. This is perfect for me.

Light weight, easy to store and powerful, quiet, clean and effecient, I feel more confident using this than my previous gas powered blower

Poor Performance
Have tried to use this for two snow events so far this winter, both unsuccessful. It keeps stalling & then won't restart. Also, it is very hard to get the battery in & the battery door cover won't close all the way. very frustrating.. I almost bought an electric start model for $100 more than this one, but when the clerk was explaining about using the throttle, priming it, gas, oil, etc. my eyes glazed over & I went for this one based on all the 5 star reviews. Unfortunately, I am... more

I Can't Wait For Next Snowfall !!!
I have to start by saying I always read reviews but have never been motivated to write one. I live in Minnesota. This blower works great. I have used it 3 times. 2 light snows and today was a good 5 inches, with some deeper drifts. My driveway is about 70 feet in length and 30 feet wide in one part and about 15 feet wide on longer part. Blew it out in about 25 mins. Then I did about 1/3 of the road in front of driveway. Then I blew out a car width in front of mailbox...still going so I went to... more

Omg
Just came home after working a double shift to find almost a foot of snow around my house. This little thing worked GREAT. I had a Toro that would never start. Every man could start it, but I could not---and this was with an electric start. I used the video to put it together, and I am really pleased. The only drawback is that you really have to push it in deep snow---it is not self-propelled. But I gave out before the battery did. I am totally impressed. I will charge it overnight, and... more
