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.

It Works Very Well
I have used this gem a few times now.

It is almost perfect!

It is so light and easy to use - it is almost fun to get out there and clear the snow. It beats using a shovel and lifting - big time. I almost trot with my Joe (it throws farther if you walk a little quicker pace) because it is so easy and light, which means I get done in about 15 minutes - and that is great!

It is quiet. I have been out before dawn and after 10pm - and nobody in the house knew a thing.

We had some... more

Not Enough Power
We only had two snow events so far in Yorkville, IL and both were rather light only 2-3 inches. However, both times my new iON snow blower disappointed me.

It needs more power to help eliminate snow. Have to grab only small amounts of snow during each pass before the unit dies and automatically restarts itself.

The battery was under a full charge and lasted a good 30 plus minutes during each event.

On the positive note I did not disrupt my sleeping neighbors while I cleaned off the... 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

No Snow Yet
We've not had snow yet but am anxious to try it out. one of the screws on the handle does not tighten very well and am afraid of losing it. love the fact that it is light weight. am hoping it works as great as you say.

Does What I Needed
I've only had my snow blower for a short time but so far very happy. Our home is part of an association that takes care of plowing for snows over 2", but since 90% of storms are under this I wanted something to handle the rest. I've only used twice so far buts it's really made quick work. Even though the 1st storm was heavy wet snow it was able to handle it. Dust throw the wet snow very far but was still better than shocking. I've been able to do my full driveway, side walk and 325... more

Worked Well After First Storm With 4 Inches
we are on a corner lot with a 2 car detached garage and a 30 ft sidewalk to the garage. The blower did a good job, the battery lasted for about 45 min, then I used a 2nd battery (bought separately). I love the fact that it is lightweight and I don't have to maintain another device with a motor.

Love My Ion
Our iON came just in time for our first snowfall of three inches of wet soggy snow. I am pleased with the way the iON handles even wet soggy snow. Easy starting, no oil to change. No explosive fuel to store, easy to push and last but not least, always ready to RUN!! A delight to own and use. I am really pleased with my iON!
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Store

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

Surprised How Well It Worked.
Purchased for elderly parents to do their sidewalks and deck. 6 in. snow was no problem, and Mom even did their small driveway. Of course, not as fast and powerful as bigger blowers, but very easy to use. Mom is not strong enough to start a gas engine, and doesn't have any experience with them. Battery powered is easy.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Expensive

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
