I used the Roomba twice after I installed this battery. Put in back on the charger and that was that. I tried using the Roomba this past week and it won't function. When I push down on the unit in the charger I get a very faint glow that it is charging the battery. I am out of the return window. Bought it on September 28, 2014 - it is now November 9, 2014 and this battery is no good. I have looked for a route to contact the seller directly on several pages, but I have not found a contact listed. I removed my 5 star seller review this morning. I can't give a good review when there's no backing up the products you sell. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 8, 2014

I will follow up if there are any issues with longevity. The battery dropped right in the roomba and after being charged it easily cleaned 3 rooms. I recharged the battery again and it did seem to have even more life, the instructions say it can take 5 recharge cycles to reach full capacity which sounds about right. If it lasts more than a year then it was a good deal.My original roomba battery lasted a long long time, something like 5 or 6 years! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 4, 2014

It worked great the first few times but then the run time kept getting shorter,now it has died and will no longer charge. It should be still under the one year warranty period but they have ignored my four requests for question on how to obtain warranty service. I did receive two responses like the one bellow but they are meaningless. I can understand and accept that a battery can go bad but cannot accept poor or non-existing customer support.Dear customer,Your Email has been received.We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that we will be off work for weekend until Monday.We will reply to you and solve your problem once we are back to work.Thank you very much for your understanding.

    Pwr+ vs Tenergy

    I decided to fix up a broken spare parts Roomba that I had inherited, and give the kiddo a thrill by having 2 Roombas. The operating Roomba had a Tenergy battery that I had purchased nearly a year ago, and was starting to show its age. I decided to replace both batteries at the same time, one with the Tenergy, and the other with the Pwr+. I'm not certain of the specific model numbers, but I know the Pwr+ went into an older model 500 series Roomba that supports the lighthouse mode, and the Tenergy went into a newer model 500 series Roomba.Right off the bat, it was apparent that the Pwr+ had a higher capacity than the Tenergy. When the Tenergy Roomba was turning orange, the Pwr+ one was still solid green. I never timed them, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Pwr+ ran twice as long. After about 3 months, I'm already noticing the Tenergy isn't running quite as long between charges as it did initially. I can't verify this without timing them (and having a baseline), it just seems... 5/5 Andrew Cusack (Huntsville, AL) - See all my reviews, March 14, 2014

    A new heart for my aging love, Robert the Robotic Vac

    It's really not a true "review" on something like this if written right after placing in service but here goes. "Robert" my iRobot Roomba was pretty much dead and when he passed he passed fast. Looking back I saw evidence of his failing. He didn't want to leave home long, didn't have much zest for life and would poop out early in the party. Finally he would leave his house (dock) crawl forward a foot or two then faint crying "charge me!." He had been with me maybe 2 1/2 years and danced for me daily save on Tuesdays - his day off. It was true love from the beginning as far as I was concerned. I called up his birth mom to make sure my diagnosis of a fainting heart was correct. Very helpful. Before buying, I went on line with Amazon to compare prices for heart (battery) replacements against those of his birth mother. I found his bm sold on both sites but priced lower on the big A site by about ten bucks.

    Technical questions need to be addressed (*and have been) before we can know if this is going to last.

    UPDATE-Based upon the following review (unedited from original) - the manufacturer responded to answer my questions. Indeed they have some circuitry to manage this charging process and use the onboard Roomba circuitry to stop charging so as to protect the lithium battery- (via the thermal sensors, which they apparently co-op and signal when their battery is charged via an embedded microchip in their battery).Based upon this I have revised my rating to 5 stars- The battery has been working very well for me with our Roomba functioning for very long periods of time between charges-HERE IS UNEDITED INITIAL REVIEW.

    A Powerful Powerpack

    This is the third battery for my four year old Roomba 570 and the last one (NiMH from iRobot) failed in nine months and wouldn't respond to the reset procedure, so I was ready to try lithium technology.So far, so good. After charging overnight, my Roomba runs like new, and runs even longer than it did as new. In fact, it seems to be running even better -- a little stronger, a little faster -- than new. Too early to tell about life expectancy yet, but given the nature of the technology, I have high hopes.A little pricey, but I'm very happy with my choice.**UPDATE** I've had the battery for three months now, so it seems a good time for an update. My robot's performance is still better than new, running for up to an hour and a half before finding the dock. While I was away for a two week trip, my Roomba hung up on some furniture, probably during the first week.

This review is from: Powerextra™ 14.4V 3500mAh Replacement Battery for iRobot Roomba 400 series (Electronics) Amazon is by far the cheapest battery I found for my Roomba. IRobot wanted $70 on their site, and Target wanted $50. I couldn't be happier with the quality. It has given new life to my Roomba. It's a sure thing. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 18, 2010

    Does not work well.

    0 1/5 Kim - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Powerextra™ 14.4V 3500mAh Replacement Battery for iRobot Roomba 400 series (Electronics) I purchased two batteries in May 2011 and here we are in August 2011. One of the batteries is doing just fine. But the other one does not work now and has not worked since July 2011. Surly this battery should work longer than that. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 14, 2011

    Defective Battery - Review contains updates re customer service and replacement battery

    Very disappointed in this product. They describe this as an iRobot battery, and even put a picture of the iRobot battery in the product listing, however, and this should have been obvious from the price, this is NOT an iRobot battery! Now, I'm not an iRobot snob, and I would be perfectly happy with a generic replacement battery, IF IT WORKED! It holds juice, and it will power the Roomba, but upon docking with the home base, I get a one red blink error light (battery problem) and a fast red blink on the charge indicator light (never turns green after charging). I thought this could have been due to the Roomba forcing a deep recharge (16 hour cycle), but I left the Roomba on the home base for 24 hours, took it off, and the Roomba was still indicating it had no charge. I did a reset of the Roomba software (hold down the "spot" and "dock" buttons at the same time for 10 seconds), and only then did the indicator light turn green. As soon as I placed it back on the homebase however, the... 1/5 Jason L. Pyrz (Naperville, IL) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Generic battery but works well

    There seems to be a variety of experiences with this battery, and I wanted to relate my experience with purchasing it.I was shipped a generic Roomba 500 battery by "Allergy Be Gone". I think unless you buy directly from Amazon (for about 2x the price), this is what you will get. When I installed the battery, I found that it was keyed so you could only install it in one direction - it wasn't possible to install the battery backwards. It was really easy to install, requiring only a Philips head screwdriver. My Roomba then charged up in a very short period of time, and it now runs for 2+ hours. The battery charges fine using either the charging station or when plugged in directly.I think "Allergy Be Gone" sells a higher quality battery than "Battery Superstore" sells. Reviews that mention Battery Superstore seem to be lower than other sellers, so I would recommend being careful about who you buy this from.Overall, I am very pleased with this... 5/5 Brian D.

    BEWARE OF BATTERY WAREHOUSE, THEY ARE SELLING GENERIC BATTERIES!

    I was a little skeptical when I saw that Battery Warehouse was selling this battery for $41, when even Amazon.com is selling it for $63.47, and some vendors sell it for as much $90, but I went ahead and took a chance with Battery Warehouse on the battery.What a mistake that was. When I received my battery and opened it up, I immediately noticed that the sticker indicating that the battery was indeed iRobot genuine was missing. I called Battery Warehouse to inquire if this was a real iRobot battery, and they assured me that it was, but I still had second thoughts about it.After a call to iRobot, we determined that this was in fact a generic battery that was NOT made by iRobot. I was also told that using this battery in my Roomba would void my warranty!Battery Warehouse refused to allow me to return this, so I had to get Amazon to give me an A2Z refund on it. Make sure that you buy this from someone other then Battery Warehouse if you really want... 1/5 Debra Barrett - See all my reviews, March 7, 2009
