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.

EV3 Rechargeable DC Battery is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from EV3 battery A fraction on the expensive side, but in the long run worth it. There is an annoying feature in the EV3Mindstorms sets, the ease of changing batteries in built models / robots. In a lot of cases you need to dismantle part of the model to change the batteries and in some cases this can be difficult and includes unplugging sensor cables around parts. The rechargeable battery helps with this problem, but is not the whole solution because in accessing the recharge socket you can still need to pull out sensor cables or move a part to get at the battery socket. Perhaps a right angle power plug on the recharging transformer cable would help in most cases. Alternatively a short adapter cable approx 2 inches long that stays in place on the rechargeable battery, (optional feature ), that way it would be a simple matter to plug in the recharging cable from the transformer without trying to get around the robots cables and parts. Plug and socket extension cable would remain on a robot where it is difficult to access the battery recharging socket due to the robots compact and complex construction.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Expected better from Lego Really disappointed with this purchase, for the cost I would have expected it to at least come with a power cord. Granted looking back at the description it does say it required the charging cable sold separately but really it seems a bit ridiculous to sell the battery pack without the charger. So in reality the chargeable DC battery pack costs more than what is listed. So now I'll need to order the charging cable and wait for it to arrive before I can use the battery pack. I expect better from Lego.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase The battery and charger (sold separately) is an expensive option but economical in the long run. I was churning through 6 to 12 alkaline AA batteries a week with my Mindstorms explorations. I considered rechargeable NiCd AAs but I've had mixed experience with their longevity. This LEGO li-Ion battery seems promising especially because Li-Ion batteries are ubiquitous in their use to power cell phones, tablets, laptops and many other devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a little bit expensive but very good product. I used rechargeable energize batteries and I could only play with the EV3 for 20 minutes. It was awful! The worst thing in this thing is that you need to buy another battery for your ev3 and you can't use your nxt 2.0 battery! My ev3 was a gift and I am was very angry because of this.
