How it works?
Irobot Roomba and scooba features the iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology.

iAdapt is an advanced system of software and sensors that allows Roomba and Scooba to clean more of your room, more thoroughly, getting into areas you can't easily reach.

With iAdapt, the robots use over 40 robotic behaviors and more than 60 decisions per second to ensure that they clean every section of your room, making multiple passes over the same area.

Roomba 500 series battery Maintenance Tips

With proper care, Roomba's battery can last for hundreds of cleaning cycles before you need to replace it. Here are some things you can do to extend Roomba's battery life and keep Roomba cleaning at peak performance:

Use your Roomba frequently. Your Roomba is powered by a rechargeable battery, which will deliver more cleaning cycles when you use it regularly.

Keep your Roomba plugged in when not in use. If you have a Home Base, keep your Roomba charging on the Home Base. If you don't have a Home Base, keep your Roomba plugged into the Battery Charger.

Place your Roomba and the Home Base on a smooth, hard surface when your Roomba is charging. Do not charge your Roomba on a thick carpet and make sure your Roomba and Home Base have plenty of space for ventilation.

Charge and store your Roomba in a cool, dry place. Keep your Roomba out of direct sunlight and away from sources of heat such as windows, radiators, heating vents, and large appliances.

Keep Roomba's brushes clean. If Roomba's brushes get clogged with hair or other debris, your Roomba will strain to spin them, using more battery power than normal.

Remove the battery for long-term storage. If you will not be using your Roomba for more than a few weeks, remove it, and store it in a cool, dry place.When you want to use your Roomba again, insert the battery and fully charge it.
