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

        We bought 14 iRobot Creates for use in the International Aerial Robotics Competition. Besides getting two of our robots dead on arrival, we used the batteries for several hours during the 2014 competition at Georgia Tech. They performed poorly (discharging rather rapidly). After 9 months of storage (with one recharge), all but 3 of the batteries would not take a charge. Very disappointed! We are being forced to use AA alkaline batteries in the 2015 competition just to pull it off successfully. Thanks iRobot!!

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

          The batteries have a very limited lifetime, and are of ancient nicad technology. They have to be replaced annually +/- depending on use. Lithium batteries have been around for a decade that would last longer cleaning by 2x pound for pound, literally, and last longer before wearing out. These are inexcusably wasteful because they need constant replacement. The CO2 load for nicad is MANY times the co2 load for lithium, so thanks for that.

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

          I use this Roomba a bit because I have a dog in my place! Because He sheds a bit. I like how the machine goes around the room and the corners, you have to keep loose cords and other things off the floor in order to have a good cleaning job done though. If you take good care of the Roomba and follow the cleaning and storage instructions, there's no reason why anything should not work. I made the mistake of not having the power plugged in when not in use as this depleted the battery use time and shorts the battery life. The only thing I thought that wasn't great about it was how noisy it seems when its cleaning. The noise is not excessive but just sounds like it.

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

              Although some complaints are likely legit, I believe complaining owners don't use their Roombas to good advantage. These are great tools. Not magic. Just tools that need to be used and treated as such, with no magical expectations. I now have several, and use them throughout the house every day. One is in the kitchen, running once or twice a day while I do dishes. Another starts at 6pm to clean upstairs. Others I run here and there when needed while I dust or do other tasks. If a new battery were needed every six months, that's still a lot less expensive than hiring a maid (which I couldn't afford). If treated properly, I've had no problem with battery life, since most last from two to three years. Those that fail early? Well, you and I are not perfect, either, and could expire at any time.

                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.
