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

      Just want to thank all the reviewers for honest feedback about the battery. I've had my unit for 5 years but most of that time it sat unused in a closet. I replaced the battery once and it lasted only a few months. I thought I'd try again and after reading the reviews, decided it wasn't worth it.

        It did a very nice job for light cleaning. Very cool technology. Set it up and it does its job when you are gone. It sounded so effortless.
        The BIG problem was it only worked for a few months before the battery gave up. The unit was stored for few years unused. Tried buying a battery for it but after reading the reviews I decided not to. Wish there was a longer lasting battery out there.

            I'm still waiting for someone to come up with a battery that will at least clean one room of low pile carpet not just hardwood floors - sure the battery may last longer but how many people have hardwood floors vs. carpet. No this was not a gift I purchased it for my own home use.

            Routine floor cleaning with iRobot Roomba. The battery life (not the run time, its actual lifespan) is so short compared to the price of the battery that I could not recommend it.

            I was hoping for an improved battery by this time.

                When it worked it was very cool! But it was more frustrating waiting for it to charge. Figured the battery died, so I got a replacement... Still don't work. It only worked after a twelve hour charge, then only worked for approximately 20 min.I read the reviews and am horrified! Not ANY good reviews. What does this say for the company?

                I really splurged on this unit a few years ago. Yes, a few years ago and that is also how long ago the battery died and i have not used it since. A pity to manufacture such a nice unit and have it equipped with what i consider a substandard battery for operating it, Yes, i know i can purchase replacement batteries from the company, but why would anyone want to invest in a unit like this and have to constantly replace batteries that only last a few months.

                    I've had a similar experience to what others are saying about the battery's short life. What's puzzling is that this is most likely the very same battery that's supplied in a new Roomba. That's why I bought it. The only explanation is that by the time the original battery dies the Roomba itself is worn out and the extra friction from worn parts is draining the new battery. So perhaps we should be asking for a longer lasting Roomba and not a longer lasting battery.

                        Over the years we owned six Roombas. They all work well until the batteries gave out. All but the latest 500 series have gone to the trash because of the lack of a dependable battery. As an owner of iRobtics stock, and Roomba cleaners, I am concerned that the company has failed to designed a dependable and cost efficient replacement battery. There are more negative battery reviews than positive, and yet the company fails to address the problem.

                            I've been through 2 batteries and I'm out of options at this point. I refuse to buy another battery that I have no confidence will work. I've had my Roomba for a few years and the service has been inconsistent the whole time due to the battery problems. When it's working, I love it, but it's only working for 15 minutes and then takes days to try and get the battery charged again to run. I'll stick with my little broom and dust pan for now. I don't want to spend any more money on this.
