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

    Not sure what's up with all the bad reviews, worked great for me. I use the Roomba about once a week so it is not over used. I dated the last battery replacement and it was 2/8/12, about two and a half years. I do not think this is bad. I do follow direction for battery maintenance, which can be found on the web site.

            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.
