That was quite a while ago, maybe they are using better battery technology now.
I bought one and found that oriental rugs and roomba don't like each other. Roomba gets caught in the fringes. After not using it a while tried it in a different room and the battery started its journey to permanently empty.

I gave up on my Roomba a few years ago. Now I just use a shopvac. Handles dog hair and sand way better than the little vacs!
