The lithium ion EV3 Rechargeable DC Battery is designed for use with the EV3 Intelligent Brick and features a capacity of 2050 mAh. It provides longer run time than AA batteries and can be charged without taking the model apart. The battery is included in the EV3 Education Core Set and has a charge time of around three to four hours. It requires the 45517 DC Charger, which is the same charger as used for the rechargeable NXT DC Battery. These are sold separately.
- November 26th, 2020Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0Lacks Charging CableParent31415 | 45-54Purchased for: SonThis rechargable battery pack does not ship with a charging cable of any sort. The battery pack is useless without at $32 charging cable, which is not standard. (We have just about every cable imaginable to charge batteries to phones) We purchased this for our child a year ago. It sat unused for all of this time because there was no way to charge it. We purchased a charger on Amazon for 1/5 the price.November 30, 2020Manouk, Customer ServiceWe're sorry to hear you were disappointed with your purchase! As mentioned on the product page, the charging cord (45517 DC Charger) is sold separately. We've done this to give fans a bit more flexibility with their purchases. For example, If you want to buy multiple batteries, you'll only need one charger cord. Or if you lose your cord, you're able to replace it without having to buy a whole new battery.Level of DifficultyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Building Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?15EV3 Rechargeable DC Battery

The robot i have at home I use batteries and I used a total of 3 Kirkland batteries packs. That costs a lot and is not Eco friendly. with this batteries it is Eco friendly and saves you money.

- May 26th, 2020Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0No power cord!NickShun | 35-44Purchased for: DaughterUnbelievable! SOOO dissapointing. When you get this rechargeable battery pack or EV3 education set, you will NOT get a power charging cable. It's like you buy a Tesla, but you will not get any charging cables. Lego, my robot is stranded on Mars... How can you expect that I have this kind of cable somewhere???
Response from LEGO SHOPJuly 1, 2020Emily, Customer ServiceWe're sorry to hear you were disappointed. As it mentions in the description, the charging cord (45517 DC Charger) is sold separately. We've done it this way to give fans a bit more flexibility. If you want multiple batteries, you only need to snag one cord. Or if you lose a cord, you can replace just that without getting a whole new battery.Play ExperienceAverage rating1out of 5 stars1.0Building Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?35EV3 Rechargeable DC Battery
