After about 2 years, the battery no longer keeps a charge on one of my vacs (I have 4). Originally, the vac just stopped in the middle of the room without warning. I’ve tried the resetting, removing, etc., but the darn thing would no longer do 1 room (about 100 Sq). So recently, I started the vac at 100%, watched my phone and the mapping.
The first image is the vac at 61% (started at 100%) after 52 ft. The second image is 2 minutes later, but now the vac is at 53% and only done 95 ft.
Total clean time: 5 minutes
Total area cleaned: 95 ft straight
Is there or will there be a replacement battery? I’ve already taken it to a battery place and they are like, um no.
Does the vac have a built in overcharge protection? Based on my experience…no.
It should have at least the most basic li-ion charging circuit, that includes overcharge protection. If mine starts acting up I plan to install in-line volt/current monitoring to see what it actually does.
What makes you think not?
2 years of daily (you didn’t say) use and using a large part of the battery capacity each time would be hard on most batteries. Not to mention the high power and heat generated in operation.
The battery is an easy to remove module. I know the manufacture base for this, I’ll send what I find to you.
A quick search for INR18650 MH1-4S1P-SC shows AliExpress has a replacement battery. It fits the Xiaomi vac which is the company that makes the Wyze robot vac.
Unfortunately they seem to be the only place to buy one.
Max size is going to be around 3500mAh (3.5Ah). So you can avoid the ones over-representing their capacity. (Link below for source of legit 18650’s)
Look closely, I noticed some look very similar, but appear to be 4 cells (twice as wide) so it won’t fit, those were also listed as Viomi v3 compatible. The ones that say ‘vacuum-mop P’ are a better match.
Good gosh, this is happening to mine now too in the past week. I can watch the battery indicator on the app drop a point every 5-6 seconds on medium (standard) suction. Will be sourcing a replacement battery from Ali…
