Roomba Battery Charging Issues
Like many heavy-duty rechargeable batteries, your Roomba battery is a metal hydride model that can last for hundreds of work cycles if properly maintained. While it'll doubtless work fine 99% of the time, we realize there are certain occasions when any Roomba aps battery might act a little wonky. If it's not charging properly, for example, allow us to offer a few suggestions.
Battery Not Charging? Simple Fixes
Is your Roomba battery not charging not charging at all? If this is the case, then there are several things you should check before contacting iRobot for a Roomba replacement battery. First, tighten the connections, from the wall plug to the adapter port in the battery pack on your cleaner. You should see a green light on the charger if the battery pack is properly seated and everything's working right, in which case no Roomba replacement battery is needed.
Battery Won't Run a Full Cycle?
These instructions are for the Roomba 400 Series. If your problem is with the battery not charging fully (that is, if your unit's running for less than 20 minutes before returning to the charger), then the battery probably needs to be reset and cycled.
