Suggestions for battery replacement of 565

Postby SVoyager » August 13th, 2017, 7:59 pm


I am sorry if this is a bit redundant, there are probably a few threads already about this but I can't pinpoint an answer vs the other threads about batteries not charging or other battery related issues, thus this post.

So in short, I have a 565 with a battery that is on its last leg and I am looking for a replacement. Any suggestions?

-There is the one available on irobot's site, the xlife at 80$ USD and up here that makes 100$ CAD + shipping, taxes etc. That's a bit on the costy side. I am looking at something a bit cheaper.
-There are those from tenergy, the green lithium one appears to be problematic with error 5s and the reviews on their NiMH 3500 and 4500mAh batteries are mixed with good reviews and many reviews with quickly dying batteries.
-There are tons of batteries available on ebay but I am uncertain of the quality of those products.

Any suggestions??
Thanks in advance!

The best performing pack for your 565 will be the "Lithium Power Inc" pack. It is a good performer with a 1 year warranty. It packs 4400 mAH and is one of a very few that actually does cell balancing during the normal charging cycle. You can find them on Amazon.

I have had good luck with these. The cells are new 3000mAh, not the 3500 as advertised. The thermistor is correct, not mounted as well as it should be inside the pack. They last a couple of years on normal operation, 200 or more cycles to 50% capacity. What could one expect for $17.99?
Luck of the battery draw, some have tested as high as 2950mAh or as low as 2650mAh.
Stay with this seller, some others that look identical are 1500mAh NiCad.
