    This is a great battery but it could run a little longer(only runs for about a hour to hour and a half0 but if you are looking for a long run time just spend the extra 10 dollars and get the longer life battery but this is a great battery i have never had to replace it and i have had this one for about 6 years and i use my robot every day

    Replacement Battery Complaints

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

        For those who are complaining about shortened battery life in your replacement battery, there is a very simple explanation.
        Your old battery was a NiCd battery which has fallen from favor for environmental reasons. Most all NiCd batteries have been replaced by NiMH batteries -- these included.
        NiMH has high self-discharge and loses about 20 percent of its capacity within the first 24 hours, and 10 percent per month thereafter.
        It's as simple as that. It is not the fault of Roomba or their battery vendor.
        My advice is to buy the cheapest replacement battery, go for 3500mh and plan to replace your battery more often than you might wish.

            I bought this battery to replace the original, that ran my Roomba 570 well for almost three years. It started out really well, but has failed after only nine months. Unlike the original battery, it did not respond to the reset procedure. iRobot will not stand behind it after six months.

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

              I purchased the current battery directly from iRobot on 03/28/12. I used it in the Roomba about twice a week. It started out doing fine, lasting almost two hours, but now, after about half an hour, it's calling it quits. I figure that's about 170 uses, or maybe 100 complete charge/discharge cycles. Kind of disappointing. I would hope iRobot would make a lithium polymer battery drop-in replacement for this expensive and not too powerful nickel metal hydride one.

              Parts are very expensive and don't last long. I bought the currently battery not that long ago (at least the third one I've bought and maybe more). It's been kept charged and not used that much, but it is totally discharged within two or three minutes. Until I break down and buy yet another battery, my robot is useless.

                My son, a Marine, bought me my Roomba before he deployed leaving his Siberian Husky for me to love on in his absence. The Roomba has been a life saver with all the shedding I have dealt with! I do have to empty and clean it probably more than someone without a dog but that is small potatoes to me. My first Roomba quit working after a few months and the company replaced it with no hesitation. I remain impressed with the service they provided. My Roomba is 4 years old and this is my first battery replacement. This is a quality product from a quality company. Oh, son is safe after 3 deploys and I have the dog...and my faithful Roomba!

                I like "Marie". She is doing well. The Problem is the battery. In the beginning it's working good, recharging well. But very soon it's not recharging anymore and Marie is only working for few minutes instead of the 2-3 hours from the beginning. It's a pity.

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

                We are senior seniors and vacuuming is very difficult for us. We bought our first robot (Ruby) in the hope that it would do as advertised. We were so happy with the results that we bought #2 (Robbie) for our winter home. We decided that now life was so good, we bought #3 (Rosie)to use upstairs. These three machines are among the most worthwhile purchases we have ever made. If they are cleaned after every use there is every reason to believe that they will last for many years.
                Regrettably, the batteries are somewhat short lived and quite expensive.

                    SO I purchased this for my mom after her original battery went bad after leaving the Irobot off the charger. I was sceptical because of the negative reviews but she loves it and says it runs longer than she needs it to using doing the living room, dining, and 2-3 bedrooms.
