New battery, will this work?

Postby rehofdk » January 2nd, 2018, 6:12 am

I got and Roomba 564 Pet that need a new battery.

The battery that is in it now is an original Roomba 3000mAh battery. Some online stores sell 4500 mAh batteries, so the quistion is: Can my Roomba enjoy the bigger battery and can it fully charge it without any problemes, og should i just buy a 3000mAh again?

Thx, Rehof

Your Roomba can work quite well with the larger capacity packs.

It certainly will work. However there are a few "gotchas".
I have had mostly bad life (longer running times but bad replacement life) from the larger batteries - maybe they are less "durable"? Use 3000 > 3500 and run the machine more frequently (if needed).
Also consider going to Lithium if you want longer run-times...
