How Long Does a Shark Robot Battery Last?

Generally, in a normal cleaning mode, the shark robot vacuum battery lasts between 1-3 hours on a single charge and 30 minutes to an hour on ‘Max’ mode. These run times vary between models due to battery capacity and floor type.

Shark has become one of the leading robot vacuum manufacturers and popular in recent years due to their high-quality and long-lasting robot vacuums. But, do they have the same reputation when it comes to battery life?

Let’s check this out!

In this article, I will discuss how long the shark vacuum and their battery last and what you should do to extend the battery life.

Quick Overview of Shark Robots and Their Battery Run Time

Here’s a table of Shark robot vacuum models along with their estimated battery run times:

Shark Robot Vacuum ModelEstimated Battery Run Time
Shark IZ3003 hours approximately
Shark RV1001AE IQ Robot Self-Empty XLNA
Shark AI Self-Empty XL RV2502AEUp to 120 minutes in Normal mode
Shark IQ RobotOver an hour in high-suction ‘Max’ mode
Shark IQ Robot R101AE Self-Emptying Robot Vacuum90-minute battery life on a single charge
Shark ION Robot Vacuum CleanerUp to 90 minutes
Shark Ion Wi-fi Connected Robot Vacuum – Rv765Up to 2 hours

Please note that these are estimated run times and actual battery life can vary based on factors such as the cleaning mode selected, usage patterns and the surface type its cleaning.

How Many Years Do Shark Robot Vacuum Batteries Last?

How Many Years Do Shark Robot Vacuum Batteries Last

On average, the shark robot vacuum rechargeable batteries last for 6 months to 1 year, based on an average household use of 4 times/week. I have also seen some robot batteries lasting 2-3 years with proper maintenance and use.

If you have a robot vacuum (Shark IQ Robot Vacuum) that comes with a charging station, home mapping and a self-emptying base, you do not need to worry about the battery running time and the charging.

The robot will start its job at the scheduled time and go back to the charging station in case of a low battery itself.

Do Shark Robot Batteries Go Bad?

Like any other rechargeable battery, Shark robot batteries can go bad over time. The performance and lifespan of a Shark robot battery gradually decrease with repeated use and charging.

As mentioned earlier in this article, the lifespan of a Shark robot battery depends on various factors such as usage patterns, charging habits, storage conditions, and overall maintenance.

On average, a Shark robot battery can last for about 6 months to a year before needing to be replaced. However, this can vary based on the factors mentioned above.

Can You Replace The Battery in a Shark Robot Vacuum?

All the shark robot vacuums use lithium batteries that can be easily replaced by removing the battery cover and installing a new battery on the device’s base.

Here’s how you can replace the battery in a shark ion robot vacuum (R75):

  1. Turn over the shark robot vacuum.
  2. Remove the battery cover using a Philips screwdriver from the robot base.
  3. Pull the cover off to expose the battery.
  4. Now, remove the battery and unplug the connected battery wires.
  5. Attach the new battery to the connector and place it in the battery compartment.
  6. Re-install the battery cover.

Here’s a quick reference video showing the whole procedure.

Since we are using these latest technology products, it’s our responsibility to keep the environment clean and minimize the technology waste as much as we can and Shark is helping its customers minimize this waste by providing assistance and information on recycling old shark lithium batteries on toll-free number (800-798-7398).

Please do contact them when you replace your old batteries. We must save the environment.

How To Extend the Battery Life of Shark Robot Vacuums?

There are some best practices that I use to maintain and extend the battery lifespan of my Shark ion robot R75, you can use these tips too.

  1. Keep Your Robot Away From Heat: Heat can also affect the performance and lifespan of your Shark robot battery. Make sure to avoid exposing it to high temperatures or direct sunlight for extended periods.
  2. Use Your Shark Robot Regularly: While it may seem counterintuitive, using your Shark robot regularly can actually help prolong the battery’s lifespan. Batteries that are not used for long periods of time tend to lose their capacity faster.
  3. Store Your Vacuum Properly: If you have to store your Shark robot for an extended time, make sure to remove the battery and store it in a cool and dry place. Avoid storing it fully charged or fully drained.
  4. Avoid overcharging: It may seem convenient to leave your Shark robot charging all the time, but overcharging can actually decrease the battery’s lifespan. You should create a charging schedule or unplug the charger once the battery is fully charged.

In addition to these tips, you should always keep an eye on the performance of your Shark robot battery.

If you notice a significant decrease in its runtime or if it stops holding a charge altogether, it may be time to replace the battery.

Fortunately, Shark offers replacement batteries for their robot vacuums, making it easy and convenient to keep your robot running at its best.
