HQRP 3300mAh APS Battery for iROBOT Roomba 550 / 560 / 570 / 580 [Vacuum Cleaning Robot] Replacement plus HQRP Mousepad Review
The original battery in my Roomba 550 has been able to run the vacuum for about two hours at first. After the first year, its duration has decreased by about one hour. And 'deteriorated rapidly over the next 6 months, so that the vacuum can only be run for 3-4 minutes before the dreaded "I-am-beep die. I tried everything to revive the battery, including opening the package and deep-discharging/charging manually. Finally, I concluded that the internal battery has developed a highResistance and can not be saved. That is why I ordered this product (GSP HQRP 3300mAh Battery for iRobot Roomba 550-580) in November last year.
There have been several similar products, which showed when I tried to "Roomba 500 Replacement Battery" on Amazon. This is not the best location, but I chose mainly because the product description is accurate (it says the capacity of 3300mAh, which is 10% higher than the original 3000mAh battery for the Roomba), and comes with aguarantee of 100 days. Instead, specify the other, no less batteries (like the iRobot R3 500 series APS Battery) the ability, but simply make vague claims like "50 percent greater useful life of the original Roomba batteries. In addition, their images show a level of non-branded battery. So there is to say, given the generic nature of the battery.
I installed this battery HQRP arrival and guided my Roomba 550 to directly. Italso had a vacuum for several minutes to run before recharging. This is a good sign because it means that the battery does not suffer from the problem of rapid self-discharge NiMH cells like many others. After a few charge discharge cycles (which were necessary to bring the battery to its full capacity), my Roomba was then able to operate for at least 2 hours, with the indicator still orange (not red). So I think the ability to '3300mAh declared to be "exactly.
Obviously it is too early to say whether this is the last box of spare more than 12 months in my Roomba. But so far has produced wonderfully for more than 3 months, with no signs of slowing down - yet. I will update this review if any problem arises in the future.
