    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'.

It has been in use for more than a month now with my Roomba 530 running for an hour or more one or two times a week. 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

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.

    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

Allowing it to completely discharge can kill the battery completely. We went on vacation and unplugged it then didn't recharge for a while and it just died.
