Uh oh, I ordered a new one like this from Costco to try, and not only does it look like a refurb (signs of dust and bangs), it has a number of very strange alternate universe-like changes.
The label is different, but it doesn't fit the label hole. The tamper-proof stickers are just white. The plastic texture is different. There is no thick manual. There is a cover on the charge port. The charge base has totally different metal strips. The targets behind the dock shield are a different color. The charger is a different power output. The battery comes unplugged. You need a screwdriver to disassemble it before using.
And worst of all for me, the new neato doesn't work on the old chargers!!! Not only will it not charge from the dock, but the old power plug won't fit the back at all! So will neato replace all our old chargers we bought?! What the heck is going on!!!
The hardware versiom of the new one reports as LOWER than the old one. I'm in the twilight zone.
