    ROOMBA BATTERY

    0 5/5 RCP14 - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tenergy Replacement Battery for iRobot 400 series Roomba (Electronics) This is my first review ever. I felt compelled to write it in order to help others looking for a battery for Roomba. I didn't want to spend $70 for a replacement. When I came across this one, I was somewhat skeptical. My robot had been out of commission for nearly three years and I considered throwing away. However, after promptly receiving the tenergy battery and charging it overnight, my Roomba started cleaning better and faster than ever. It ran around for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes and it's extended the time which each subsequent charge. The price and the performance of this battery are just amazing! Thank you Amazon for providing this great product! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 16, 2012

    Not all ROOMBA problems are (dead) battery related

    I have owned a ROOMBA Discovery for about 3 years and am just now finding it necessary to replace the battery. Sure, I had major problems like many others with short battery life beginning when the unit was about 14 months old.I did a bit of research and found a discussion group that listed a good "try this before you panic" solution. Reset the ROOMBA and refresh the battery. And it worked! How?Run the ROOMBA until the unit stops. Let it sit for about 15 minutes and try running it again. Do this until it no longer will start up. Then, remove the battery. Flip it over and hold down the POWER button for 20-25 seconds. Release. Flip back over and insert the battery. (I also took this opportunity to thoroughly clean all of the contacts with a Q-Tip and a little rubbing alcohol - letting it dry completely before putting the battery back in). Finally, I plugged the power supply directly into the ROOMBA (not the docking station) and let it charge for 3 days... 4/5 Thomas E.

    This Makes Three Batteries

    I have now had to order my third battery for this Roomba. Like another poster the first one died within a year. This time it lasted about 1 1/2 years. At $50 a pop that is ridiculous and, after reading complaints here and on other sites, makes me wonder if it is planned that way, a vacuum conspiracy. As funny as that sounds, it is also based on experience. I have given two Roombas for Christmas presents and the same thing happened to them. They both went down before 6 months was up. I have yet to read a review in which the battery lasted more than a year. If this was a car company they would be under Federal investigation. They know they've got you over a barrel and I'd be willing to be that they earn the vast majority of their money through replacement batteries, etc.Well, since the thing is worthless without it I am forced to buy yet another battery. That's three in less than three years. There's definitely something fishy going on here. How else can you... 2/5 dalefl "dalefl" (Here) - See all my reviews This review is from: iRobot Advanced Power System Ni-MH Battery, 3000 mAh, 17373 (Kitchen) I have now had to order my third battery for this Roomba.

    Try this before ordering a new battery

    Your Roomba may be experiencing an issue where the battery is deeply discharged and may need to charge longer than the standard 2.5 hours. (or 6 hours if you have a standard charger)If you have fully charged your Battery (the Roomba Power light is solid green) and it charging time was short (less than 20 minutes) and its run time was short (less than 20 minutes) you will need to do the following.Reset the Roomba charging system. Do this by removing the Battery and holding down the "power" button for at least 5 seconds. Then reinstall the Battery.Plug the Charger into Roomba (avoid using the Home Base if you have one so as to ensure the Roomba's charging cycle is not interrupted.)Charge the Battery until the Roomba Power light is solid green and keep the Roomba on the Charger for an additional 72 hours (3 days). Note: Do not interrupt this charging cycle.In Max mode, run the Roomba for one complete cycle without a Home Base... 4/5 kensmiles - See all my reviews This review is from: iRobot Roomba APS 4905 Battery (Kitchen) Your Roomba may be experiencing an issue where the battery is deeply discharged and may need to charge longer than the standard 2.5 hours.

    Not an authentic iRobot brand battery

    I just received this order and discovered that, despite the deceptive photo for the product description, this is a generic replacement and not an authentic iRobot brand battery. I have not yet tested it to see how well it performs; but I am quite upset with the deceptive product description. Now that I read the reviews others have written, I find several reviews that point out that this is a generic brand battery-- I wish I had read those more carefully before buying this battery.There are several other companies selling aftermarket batteries for the Roomba on Amazon. I have no idea if they are better or worse than this one-- but several are cheaper and clearly identify themselves as aftermarket, 3rd party batteries. I decided to pay a little bit more for this battery because I thought I was getting an iRobot brand battery.So, if you are considering buying this battery hopefully you read these reviews more carefully than I did and know ahead of time what you... 1/5 Scott A.

    Really does hold a charge better than original.

    0 5/5 matt b "matt b" (Chicago, IL United States) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: iRobot Roomba APS 4905 Battery (Kitchen) The original was fine, but unimpressive, generally. My initial battery died pretty quickly, going from over an hour, to around 15 minutes, to under... anyway, after a few charges and discharges, this lasts considerably longer than the original.It does what it's sold to do. Half the reviewers are rating Amazon's ability to ship the battery on time, somehow... mine arrived in 2 days (prime).Good price, good product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 1, 2007
