It worked great the first few times but then the run time kept getting shorter,now it has died and will no longer charge. It should be still under the one year warranty period but they have ignored my four requests for question on how to obtain warranty service. I did receive two responses like the one bellow but they are meaningless. I can understand and accept that a battery can go bad but cannot accept poor or non-existing customer support.Dear customer,Your Email has been received.We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that we will be off work for weekend until Monday.We will reply to you and solve your problem once we are back to work.Thank you very much for your understanding. Have a great weekend!Best regards,ATC LLC8/23/13 Never heard a thing so I guess they don't care. You get what you pay for shame on Amazon for hosting a company that can just ignore warranties. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 17, 2013

    Long Time Roomba User Extremely Happy with New Version

    I've been a Roomba user for almost two years, so I know the benefits of a little automated vacuum. However we had three primary complaints that iRobot has addressed in this new version:1. Inconvenience of coming home to a dead battery2. Difficult to clean3. Noisy4. Could not focus on dirtier areas; only cleaned randomly.1. We have gotten into the habit of, as we are walking out the door, putting the Roomba to work. However, we always used to have the problem of coming home to Roomba with a dead battery (inevitably it would die in the worst spots, like under our bed just out of reach). Then we would have to plug him in to our charger (which we had to shell out sixty bucks for) and wait for two hours to use him again. That was complaint one for the old version.iRobot has fixed the battery issue on the Discovery. The fast charger (which we had to pay for before) is now built in. Secondly, and what has proven to be my favorite new... 5/5 Jacob & Kiki Hantla (Chandler, AZ United States) - See all my reviews, September 13, 2004

    The Roomba--Does it work or not? The answer is surprising.

    This was a pretty hard purchase for me. The reasons were 1) It was a pretty expensive item and 2) The reviews for this product were very extreme--from high praise to the pits. (See previous review about the person who returned *four* of them. Hard to believe, actually.) But the promise of an automated robot that would do the daily vacuuming was too much to turn down and I decided to take a chance on the Roomba Discovery. The odds were in my favor as the store I purchased it from offered a 60-day money back guarantee. If it didn't work, no problem.I unpacked the Roomba Discovery and found these items packed with it: the Roomba, battery pack, charger, two infra-red "wall" devices, a cleaning utility brush, a couple of extra air filters, a wall mount kit, the home charging base, a remote control and associated manuals, advertisements and offers.The Roomba Discovery and all its contents were fimrly and snuggly packed inside their foam enclosures.

    Better Than You Are

    It's very easy to set up: I just plugged in the battery and the charger, pressed the buttons like the little instruction guide told me, and it hopped on there and started charging.I let the Roomba wander around for a half hour this morning, and aside from a horrible mishap with my bath mat it did well. Although somewhere inside its little chipular head there is a rhyme and reason to its journey, I could not discern it.Sometimes it gets stuck, and I just keep an ear out to hear if it needs help. It spent a good two minutes trying to hump a floor lamp, but like an errant cat I swatted at its bumper and it was discouraged.It's not as loud or as powerful as I thought it might be--it's a different kind of vacuuming. It's basically a sort of robust electric sweeper with a brain. It sometimes has trouble with rug tassels and edges. The acrylic rugs, which are light, peel up off the floor easily and obstruct. The wool rugs are heavier and less... 4/5 M. Wolfe (Gotham) - See all my reviews, April 12, 2005

This review is from: Tenergy iRobot Roomba 4905 APS Replacement Battery (Retail card packaging) for 400 Series Roomba Vacuum Cleaner (Kitchen) My original battery would no longer hold a charge and I was a bit weary about ordering a "generic" replacement battery for my Roomba. I realized that the internals were almost the same. The difference with this replacement battery: I get over TWICE as much vacuum time than the original battery. If I set my Roomba to "Max" using the original battery, (it will run until depleted or about 2 hours) - the replacement battery lasted over 4 hours! When I got home the poor Roomba couldn't pick up anymore dirt as it was stuffed.I would highly recommend this replacement battery to any Roomba user looking to replace their original battery. This replacement battery has performance and value. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2010

I discovered that the battery would not fully seat on one side (the short side), and the spring mechanism that holds it in place would not latch. I took a razor blade and just scraped off a tiny bit of the plastic that was preventing it from latching, and now it works perfectly. It charges quickly. and lasts as long as the original, maybe even a little longer since it's about 15% bigger in capacity than the original (3500 vs 3000mAh).It is a simple fix that should not keep anyone from purchasing this. If you have a similar problem, just look carefully at what's keeping the mechanism from moving over to lock the battery in place. I had to shave off just one side of one latch.(My order was fulfilled by Wondershop.) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 13, 2015
