Three Days to Never

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! Thank you Amazon for providing this great product! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 16, 2012

    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.

    Inexpensive replacement battery with exaggerated capacity rating

    I have owned a Roomba 550 since nearly four years ago. The original battery pack became useless after about 18 months. Next, I bought a which lasted 27 months. By the time this second battery pack also died, I feel that my Roomba is already near the end of its lifespan, so I was not going to spend a lot for the third battery. This was among the cheapest I can find, which is why I decided to try my luck and purchased it one month ago.The battery pack I received actually says '3500mAh' (or 3.5 Ampere-hour) on it, which is a nice surprise since Amazon description says just '3.3Ah'. Unfortunately, I just tested the... 3/5 NLee the Engineer (Nashua, NH) - See all my reviews, May 6, 2012

This review is from: Tenergy Replacement Battery for iRobot R3 500, 600, & 700 series 14.4V APS Battery (Kitchen) My Roomba was suffering - it would clean about 10 minutes and then start looking for its dock. Most times, it would simply stop in the middle of cleaning and decide it was too tired to even return home. This battery is an excellent replacement, and my Roomba now lasts longer than it did when new, cleaning my entire main floor before returning, when it was only sufficient for about 2/3ds of the floor when new... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 1, 2010

I bought this battery on Amazon as a replacement for the dead one in my very old "Roomba Discovery" vacuum. The battery looks identical to the original and runs the cleaner for about 1 hour. I'm good with that.However, I downrated this battery by one star because it was not an exact mechanical fit. The Roomba's locking tabs do not click into place on it for some reason and I needed to use something (wooden spoon handle or whatever) to activate the locking mechanisms to make electrical contact and secure it in place. Maybe this is unique to the battery I received? However, if you buy one of these batteries and it doesn't work, check to see if it is locked in place. One way to test this is to turn the Roomba upside down to see if the battery falls out. If it does, put it back in and use something to press down on the locking tabs to activate them.Since you install the battery only one time, I don't see this as a big problem. Good battery otherwise. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 14, 2014

    Defective Battery - Review contains updates re customer service and replacement battery

    Very disappointed in this product. They describe this as an iRobot battery, and even put a picture of the iRobot battery in the product listing, however, and this should have been obvious from the price, this is NOT an iRobot battery! Now, I'm not an iRobot snob, and I would be perfectly happy with a generic replacement battery, IF IT WORKED! It holds juice, and it will power the Roomba, but upon docking with the home base, I get a one red blink error light (battery problem) and a fast red blink on the charge indicator light (never turns green after charging). I thought this could have been due to the Roomba forcing a deep recharge (16 hour cycle), but I left the Roomba on the home base for 24 hours, took it off, and the Roomba was still indicating it had no charge. I did a reset of the Roomba software (hold down the "spot" and "dock" buttons at the same time for 10 seconds), and only then did the indicator light turn green. As soon as I placed it back on the homebase however, the... 1/5 Jason L. Pyrz (Naperville, IL) - See all my reviews, March 22, 2009

    Generic battery but works well

    There seems to be a variety of experiences with this battery, and I wanted to relate my experience with purchasing it.I was shipped a generic Roomba 500 battery by "Allergy Be Gone". I think unless you buy directly from Amazon (for about 2x the price), this is what you will get. When I installed the battery, I found that it was keyed so you could only install it in one direction - it wasn't possible to install the battery backwards. It was really easy to install, requiring only a Philips head screwdriver. My Roomba then charged up in a very short period of time, and it now runs for 2+ hours. The battery charges fine using either the charging station or when plugged in directly.I think "Allergy Be Gone" sells a higher quality battery than "Battery Superstore" sells. Reviews that mention Battery Superstore seem to be lower than other sellers, so I would recommend being careful about who you buy this from.Overall, I am very pleased with this... 5/5 Brian D.

    BEWARE OF BATTERY WAREHOUSE, THEY ARE SELLING GENERIC BATTERIES!

    I was a little skeptical when I saw that Battery Warehouse was selling this battery for $41, when even Amazon.com is selling it for $63.47, and some vendors sell it for as much $90, but I went ahead and took a chance with Battery Warehouse on the battery.What a mistake that was. When I received my battery and opened it up, I immediately noticed that the sticker indicating that the battery was indeed iRobot genuine was missing. I called Battery Warehouse to inquire if this was a real iRobot battery, and they assured me that it was, but I still had second thoughts about it.After a call to iRobot, we determined that this was in fact a generic battery that was NOT made by iRobot. I was also told that using this battery in my Roomba would void my warranty!Battery Warehouse refused to allow me to return this, so I had to get Amazon to give me an A2Z refund on it.
