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.

    ROOMBA BATTERY

    0 5/5 RCP14 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tenergy Replacement Battery for iRobot 400 series Roomba (Electronics) This is my first review ever. I felt compelled to write it in order to help others looking for a battery for Roomba. I didn't want to spend $70 for a replacement. When I came across this one, I was somewhat skeptical. My robot had been out of commission for nearly three years and I considered throwing away. However, after promptly receiving the tenergy battery and charging it overnight, my Roomba started cleaning better and faster than ever. It ran around for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes and it's extended the time which each subsequent charge. The price and the performance of this battery are just amazing!

    Poor run time.

    I received this battery promptly and happily put it into my Roomba, which had a dead battery. It started right up and worked quite well.About 40 minutes later, my Roomba was dead again. The battery lasted only 40 minutes, when the product description claims it should run more than twice that. Either this is a dud battery or just a cheap ripoff.Please don't claim that a battery has 3.3 Ah of battery capacity when it clearly does not. There wasn't even a label on the battery.I can't recommend this product unless you're really strapped for cash.EDIT:After opening the battery, I can verify that the capacity is not the 3.3 Ah as advertised, but 2.6 Ah, more than 20% less capacity.Not only this but the company that makes the batteries is called Golden Dragon Battery, based in China.Shoddy product, false advertising, and reselling of other companies products makes me want to say with certainty that I would... 2/5 O.

    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.

I couldn't really tell the Roomba's battery was going bad -- at some point it just stopped in the middle of cleaning a room with a red light on the Roomba.Unlike replacing the "cleaning head motor" unit, installation is very easy. Remove the screws on the underside of the Roomba to facilitate removing the faceplate, loosen the set screw for the brush (and remove) --- once you do that, remove the faceplate and the battery will be accessible. Remove, replace, and put the screws and brush back into place.One final thing -- let the battery fully charge before use (at least 12 hours.) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 25, 2014

    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
