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. Have a great weekend!Best regards,ATC LLC8/23/13 Never heard a thing so I guess they don't care.

    Inexpensive replacement battery with exaggerated capacity rating

    I have owned a Roomba 550 since nearly four years ago. The original battery pack became useless after about 18 months. Next, I bought a which lasted 27 months. By the time this second battery pack also died, I feel that my Roomba is already near the end of its lifespan, so I was not going to spend a lot for the third battery. This was among the cheapest I can find, which is why I decided to try my luck and purchased it one month ago.The battery pack I received actually says '3500mAh' (or 3.5 Ampere-hour) on it, which is a nice surprise since Amazon description says just '3.3Ah'. Unfortunately, I just tested the... 3/5 NLee the Engineer (Nashua, NH) - See all my reviews, May 6, 2012

So far I haven't exhausted the battery on any of the cleaning missions!The battery has been performing as well or better than the original battery (when new) and has been a good value so far.UPDATE: 10/22/2012Over a year later and this battery is still going strong! I typically get an hour plus from it.UPDATE: 12/16/2013The battery is starting to show its age. The run time of my Roomba is now about an hour, sometimes a little less. I feel I got my money's worth out of this battery.UPDATE: 11/16/2014I cleaned and lubricated the cleaning head module and now I'm seeing an hour plus run time again. Still very pleased with this battery! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 26, 2011

    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 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.

    ROOMBA BATTERY

I felt compelled to write it in order to help others looking for a battery for Roomba. I didn't want to spend $70 for a replacement. When I came across this one, I was somewhat skeptical. My robot had been out of commission for nearly three years and I considered throwing away. However, after promptly receiving the tenergy battery and charging it overnight, my Roomba started cleaning better and faster than ever. It ran around for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes and it's extended the time which each subsequent charge. The price and the performance of this battery are just amazing!

    Poor run time.

    I received this battery promptly and happily put it into my Roomba, which had a dead battery. It started right up and worked quite well.About 40 minutes later, my Roomba was dead again. The battery lasted only 40 minutes, when the product description claims it should run more than twice that. Either this is a dud battery or just a cheap ripoff.Please don't claim that a battery has 3.3 Ah of battery capacity when it clearly does not. There wasn't even a label on the battery.I can't recommend this product unless you're really strapped for cash.EDIT:After opening the battery, I can verify that the capacity is not the 3.3 Ah as advertised, but 2.6 Ah, more than 20% less capacity.Not only this but the company that makes the batteries is called Golden Dragon Battery, based in China.Shoddy product, false advertising, and reselling of other companies products makes me want to say with certainty that I would... 2/5 O.
