About a year ago I rescued this poor Roomba. It had been owned by some truly disgusting individual. It was full of animal feces, the battery was trash and it finally died due to a red wine spill on top of it causing one wheel motor drive transistor to pop along with a few traces that had corroded away. It really wasn't worth saving.

I just got it running after completely disassembling it, running all the plastic parts through the dishwasher, repairing the mainboard, cleaning out the dog shit, building a custom lithium battery for it and modifying the AC adapter to charge lithium without housefires.

It's a terrible old Roomba that smacks into the walls like a blind and retarded dog, but I love it all the same.
