    Comments about iRobot Advanced Power System (APS) 3000 mAh NiMH Battery:

    Comments on the battery are overwhelmiingly price related. Online elsewhere there are are much lower priced choices and most likely of lesser quality. They are probably imported clones, notably from Asia where copying is not criminal. Do a web search. I am trying one myself.

          Why aren't you doing something about the battery life or the replacement cost?there is no way I will keep on buying this lousy battery that doesn't hold up even a year. If I do not get a reasonable answer, only thing I canj do is continuous and relentless campaign against your otherwise great product. Either lower the price of replacement battery or make it last longer!

              I loved this thing when I first got it and told everybody I knew just how great it was but that sure did change. The battery I got with the machine worked for about 14 months which was acceptable. But the next one worked about 7 months and the 3rd worked for about 3 months but didn't hold a charge long enough to clean one room and around 4 months died completely. So that's it for me. I will not buy another junk overpriced battery! So like many others mine sits in the laundry room collecting dust.

                Great for getting under furniture and beds but battery life is very disappointing. My vacuum still works but until you come up with a better battery, it will sit in my closet.

                I love the product but I refuse to buy another new battery. My last battery lasted less than 8 months. We have allergies and it is great for keeping dust from accumulating under the beds. Poor value for the money.

                    My Roomba would be convenient if the battery lasted any length of time. Completely dies within a year and at $70. to replace, is not worth it. Totally a waste of money. Roomba company, you have way to many people that have ask for a better long lasting battery. If you can't supply that, I assume you don't care for returning customers.

                      Once the battery goes, that's it. Machine is now worthless. For the money, the company should offer original buyers a substantial discount on either batteries or new machine. For replacement cost of new battery I can buy a new broom, mop, dustpan, bucket, duster, and a lot of vacuum bags.
