Extended Life Batteries

I've bought two used 650's so far with completely exhausted iRobot Extended Life batteries. After a charge, both ran 2.5 hours before depleting. Good batteries.

There are many Roomba owners that don't know the internal battery will continually discharge if not left on a home base or directly connected to a power supply. This continuous discharge of the battery is due to electronic circuits internal to the Roomba that are always on no matter what. Circuits like the remote control signal receiver, +5 v power to the MCU.

The i7 is still very new and a major change to the Li-ion design from previous Roomba packs has created a vacuum in the design to deliver stream from vendors. Patience is recommended.
