I have an older B&D electric mower and the only problems I had with it was the original battery started to die, causing issues as it takes two batteries to mow the entire lawn when it is long nd damp. They have redesigned the newer mowers so the old batteries are no longer available, so I opened the battery and found the markings on the individual batteries that make up the unit and order replacements. Was able to put it back together and back in business. Other than sharpening the blade a couple of times that’s the only issues I’ve had.

My lawn mower often doesn't explode after I put it away for about a month

What?   your lawn mower usually explodes?   that can't be good.

Most of the issues I've heard of with electrics are lack of power (normally this means the owner is trying to mow very tall grass which the mower wasn't designed to do).
Battery goes down too fast (usually caused by the owner not realizing how much power the mower really needs to do the job they have).

My wife was looking at some of the battery powered electrics and by asking enough questions we determined we would need at least 40 volts to do our back yard (3/4 acre)
We also found out that for any length of time of no use, a trickle charger is the way to go.
Wife then decided to stick with our current light hydrocarbon (gasoline) powered mower
