Three Days to Never

Creator: Tim Powers | Fiction - 2007-11-27

More than fifty years after Einstein makes a horrific scientific discovery, Frank Marrity and his young daughter, Daphne, visit the home of Frank's deceased grandmother, unaware that she had been the secret daughter of the legendary ...

Publisher: Harper

About this book
Albert Einstein's groundbreaking scientific discoveries made possible the creation of the most terrible weapon the world had ever known. But he made another discovery that he chose to reveal to no one—to keep from human hands a power that dwarfed the atomic bomb. When twelve-year-old Daphne Marrity takes a videotape labeled Pee-wee's Big Adventure from her recently deceased grandmother's house, neither she nor her college-professor father, Frank, realize what they now have in their possession. In an instant they are thrust into the center of a world-altering conspiracy, drawing the dangerous attentions of both the Israeli Secret Service and an ancient European cabal of occultists. Now father and daughter have three days to learn the rules of a terrifying magical chess game in order to escape a fate more profound than death—because the Marritys hold the key to the ultimate destruction of not only what's to come . . . but what already has been.

This review is from: Card Tenergy iRobot Roomba 4905 APS Battery Replacement (Kitchen) My original battery would no longer hold a charge and I was a bit weary about ordering a "generic" replacement battery for my Roomba. I realized that the internals were almost the same. The difference with this replacement battery: I get over TWICE as much vacuum time than the original battery. If I set my Roomba to "Max" using the original battery, (it will run until depleted or about 2 hours) - the replacement battery lasted over 4 hours! When I got home the poor Roomba couldn't pick up anymore dirt as it was stuffed.I would highly recommend this replacement battery to any Roomba user looking to replace their original battery. This replacement battery has performance and value. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2010

    Your Roomba may be experiencing an issue where the battery is deeply discharged and may need to charge longer than the standard 2.5 hours. (or 6 hours if you have a standard charger)If you have fully charged your Battery (the Roomba Power light is solid green) and it charging time was short (less than 20 minutes) and its run time was short (less than 20 minutes) you will need to do the following.Reset the Roomba charging system. Do this by removing the Battery and holding down the "power" button for at least 5 seconds. Then reinstall the Battery.Plug the Charger into Roomba (avoid using the Home Base if you have one so as to ensure the Roomba's charging cycle is not interrupted.)Charge the Battery until the Roomba Power light is solid green and keep the Roomba on the Charger for an additional 72 hours (3 days).

    Not an authentic iRobot brand battery

    I just received this order and discovered that, despite the deceptive photo for the product description, this is a generic replacement and not an authentic iRobot brand battery. I have not yet tested it to see how well it performs; but I am quite upset with the deceptive product description. Now that I read the reviews others have written, I find several reviews that point out that this is a generic brand battery-- I wish I had read those more carefully before buying this battery.There are several other companies selling aftermarket batteries for the Roomba on Amazon. I have no idea if they are better or worse than this one-- but several are cheaper and clearly identify themselves as aftermarket, 3rd party batteries. I decided to pay a little bit more for this battery because I thought I was getting an iRobot brand battery.So, if you are considering buying this battery hopefully you read these reviews more carefully than I did and know ahead of time what you... 1/5 Scott A.

This review is from: iRobot Roomba APS 4905 Battery (Kitchen) The original was fine, but unimpressive, generally. My initial battery died pretty quickly, going from over an hour, to around 15 minutes, to under... anyway, after a few charges and discharges, this lasts considerably longer than the original.It does what it's sold to do.

    Pwr+ vs Tenergy

    I decided to fix up a broken spare parts Roomba that I had inherited, and give the kiddo a thrill by having 2 Roombas. The operating Roomba had a Tenergy battery that I had purchased nearly a year ago, and was starting to show its age. I decided to replace both batteries at the same time, one with the Tenergy, and the other with the Pwr+. I'm not certain of the specific model numbers, but I know the Pwr+ went into an older model 500 series Roomba that supports the lighthouse mode, and the Tenergy went into a newer model 500 series Roomba.Right off the bat, it was apparent that the Pwr+ had a higher capacity than the Tenergy. When the Tenergy Roomba was turning orange, the Pwr+ one was still solid green. I never timed them, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Pwr+ ran twice as long. After about 3 months, I'm already noticing the Tenergy isn't running quite as long between charges as it did initially. I can't verify this without timing them (and having a baseline), it just seems... 5/5 Andrew Cusack (Huntsville, AL) - See all my reviews, March 14, 2014

Bought this battery as the most inexpensive replacement for our Roomba. Put it in, charged it up and it works great. Word of warning to Roomba owners...never let it sit off the charger. Allowing it to completely discharge can kill the battery completely. We went on vacation and unplugged it then didn't recharge for a while and it just died. The replacement is great at a much better price than buying from Roomba directly. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 28, 2011

    Great Deal, Get What You Pay For, Good Company

    Within three charges one battery was dead. The company stood behind the product and quickly shipped me another and I was up and running again. These batteries work OK, but do not expect to have the run time of an OEM battery.

This review is from: COMBO: 2 Pcs Tenergy Replacement Batteries (Yellow Case) for iRobot Roomba APS 4905 400 series Vacumm Cleaner (Kitchen) I received my order from ATC LLC and the product received were generic batteries and not the Tenergy batteries as described. I contacted the seller and they assured me these generic batteries were of equal value to the brand. I was hesitant to keep them but they ended up giving me a few dollars off so I did give them a try. The batteries, both of them, died within a months time.

    Low quality... be aware...

    0 1/5 Danny - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: COMBO: 2 Pcs Tenergy Replacement Batteries (Yellow Case) for iRobot Roomba APS 4905 400 series Vacumm Cleaner (Kitchen) First off, this are re-manufactured batteries; both came with scratches on the cases. Not a real issue, assuming that they are OK. Unfortunately, they are not; after less than 3 months, this batteries managed to damage the charging circuit on both Roombas Discovery I was using them on. Apparently, the charging current required by this batteries is higher than what Roomba is designed for and it will overheat some components from the internal charger that will eventually fail. Never had a problem with original batteries; one is still working on the third Roomba I have. If you want to stay out of trouble, look for a genuine Roomba battery. A little more expensive but it will save you money not having to fix the Roomba. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 9, 2013
