Can you use 980's 3300mAh Li replacement battery on the 960?

Postby jackyhk » November 30th, 2018, 9:55 pm

I am trying to replace the battery of my roomba 960 and has been wondering if I can buy the 3300mAh instead of the 1800mAh Li battery since it theoretically holds a longer charge and allow 980 to run up to 2 hours. Would I be able to do that, and if done so would my 960 actually be able to run up to 2 hours per cycle?

Thanks

I run 4400 mAH LI packs in both the 980 and 960. Go for it.

Of course the recharge time will be longer too.

That is the vendor I buy from and resell on my website. Good product and warranty.
