Order and packaging of the Roomba battery
The delivery from Amazon came as always fast and reliable. The packaging is appropriate and sufficient. A simple box with the following contents: The battery, a side brush and a cleaning tool. The side brush is slightly bent, so the bristles, but should not be a problem. However, I do not really need them, I have enough of them in stock. The cleaning tool is handy if you have misplaced the original.
The battery for the iRobot Roomba
suitable for many models
According to the manufacturer, the battery is compatible with all models of the iRobot Roomba 500 series, the iRobot Roomba 600 series, the iRobot Roomba 700 series and the iRobot Roomba 800 series. It fits perfectly with our 780s. According to the manufacturer, the rechargeable battery still retains at least 80% capacity over 500 charging cycles and, at 3800mAh, has 800mAh as the original rechargeable battery from iRobot. The Akuu has protection against overcharging and discharging and has international safety certificates.
Installation and first use of the Roomba battery
The installation is very easy. Unscrew the 2 screws of the battery compartment, lift off the cover, remove the old battery, insert new battery, screw it in and you're done. No cables or similar need to be unplugged or plugged in. The battery itself is already slightly pre-charged, at least it is enough for a ride on the charging station. Then charge for at least 12 hours and off you go.
Perfectly fitting battery for our iRobot Roomba 780
The battery has a reasonable price and looks well made. He has been in action a few times now. He has not yet completed a complete cleaning trip until unloading. About the stamina I can not say anything more accurate, report is replenished.
Update after 5 months in use
The battery holds and delivers power
The first 5 months have now brought the new battery for the Roomba behind. The performance is right. As in the past, when the original battery was still full of juice, the rooms were sufficiently drained. The purchase what in good.
UPDATE after 7 months
Very good stamina
The last time I left the house and activated the Roomba, I forgot to clear the way to the Charging Station. So what did I find when I came home after over 3 hours? A vacuum cleaner that was still looking for its charging station and still had enough power to drive over carpet edges. I would now appreciate that the original battery has not lasted so long. Now it remains to be seen how long the replacement battery for the Roomba can hold such a capacity. Updates follow.
