Installation is easy - remove two screws from the bottom of the Neato (just under the roller), and you'll be able to access the battery. Unplug that one, plug this one in, and screw the cover back on. Turn on the Neato and reconnect it to your Wi-Fi (hold the clean button and the right bumper to turn it off, turn it back on again, sync the Neato app to the Neato's Wi-Fi, and then select your home network), and that's it. This took me about 5 minutes total.
As for the performance, this battery was everything I thought it would be and more! It's double the capacity (4200mah vs 2100mah), and fits into the Botvac D3 Connected without causing any navigational issues from the extra weight/size. Additionally, even though it's "only" double the capacity, it seems to have almost tripled the area it can clean on a single charge. Cleaning my 1300sqf house ran the other battery down 2.5 times - the new battery finished it in a single cycle with some juice left to spare. I know, it's hard to believe... The only explanation I can think of is that maybe the cleaning algorithm is more efficient when it doesn't have to go back to recharge and it's possible that when it resumes where it left off, some areas are getting cleaned twice. I've noticed this behavior when the Neato gets stuck and it has to try to recover it's position when you resume the cleaning cycle, so maybe it's the same with the charging/resuming.
What this means is that the cleaning area of the Botvac D3 with this battery should be exactly the same as the D5. For those of you with houses over 1800 square feet, this makes buying the Botvac D3 Connected a viable option for you. Personally, I bought this battery and the High Performance filters (as another upgrade for the D3) and I still saved about $100 over the cost of the D5, while having most of the same features. I'm a happy customer!
Support is now asking a bunch of things about the botvac itself, which is out of its 1-year warrantee period. Let's see if the botvac -- being the one thing out-of-warrantee here -- is determined to be the reason the battery arrived completely discharged.
About a week ago I got this higher capacity battery and boy, what a difference! Instead of lasting only 40 minutes the D3 will run for about an hour and 45 minutes, well over double the time. That is almost, but not quite, enough time to do our entire floor. But! The Botvac is smart enough that when it comes back to recharge after having done about 90% of the job, it "knows" that it does not have to recharge the battery again completely to finish. So instead of charging for another hour, it only chargers for about 15 minutes, goes back to where it left off and finishes the job, and then comes back to the dock for a full charge for the next cycle. Smart!
For the reviews that have said that this battery does not fit the D3, I can only assume that they couldn't figure out the correct orientation for the battery in its compartment. The original battery is more or less rectangular in cross section and easily fits in the battery compartment. The compartment itself is triangular in cross section and so is the higher capacity battery. The high cap battery will go into the compartment only one way, but it does fit perfectly when oriented correctly.
Also, I did not buy a new battery, I bought a "Used-Acceptable" battery via Amazon Warehouse at a considerable savings. The description said that it might have large cosmetic imperfections, but I couldn't tell it from brand new.
The agent then suggested that the easiest way to fix the problem was to upgrade the battery to that which comes in the higher priced models - basically double the capacity. He offered it at a discount from them but a "used, acceptable" one on Amazon was less and, has been my experienced in the past, is simply a repackaged new one because whoever returned it did not keep all the original packaging. It fits, charges and works properly, will have to see how long the service life is.
It's probably my imagination, but with the greatly increased run time, the Neato seems to clean more aggressively and in a more direct route. The old run time was always 1:30-1:35 (this does not include any recharging time during the run, strictly how long the machine was actually running) and is now 1:16-1:18 to do our 1600sf house (only 832 feet of which is actually vacuumed).
