    How long did your battery last?

    I have two Roomba 880s which run every day. Without fail, they stay on the charging base the remainder of the time. Typically missions are about 50 minutes, but every now and then one of them will bounce around without discovering the dock in time. After just 58 to 60 minutes they play the sad song, ask for a charge, and power off.

    Is it expected that they would ask for a charge and shut off after only an hour, or does this mean the battery is already nearing end of life? One is only 3.5 months old. The other is 7 months old.

    If you've already replaced a battery, how long did your Roomba's first battery last? Which model do you have, and how did you know it was time for a replacement?
