How to Charge Roomba Without Home Base

“Every great Roomba has a Home Base.”

We’re talking about the primary charging station for your Roomba.

But what if I told you that a Home Base isn’t required to power your Roomba?

So How to Charge Roomba Without Home Base

You may charge your Roomba without a Home Base by inserting it straight into the charger. The dedicated charging port is located on the side of the device. When the battery is full, the Roomba will automatically cease charging.

How to Charge Roomba without Home Base

Is it possible to use Roomba without a Home Base?

The Roomba may be used without a Home Base. If the charging station is not accessible, the Roomba has its own charging port.

This does, however, need some menial work on your part. Furthermore, it violates the entire idea of Roombas being self-contained (sort of).

Note: The Roomba won’t clean unless disconnected from the power supply. With that said, you need to unplug the Roomba first. 

Even if you don’t have a charging port, your robot friend will return to where it started cleaning.

Isn’t that great?

“What’s the sense of having a Home Base then?”

The primary function of a Home Base is to allow your Roomba to dock and charge on its own after completing a cleaning cycle.

There are several advantages to using a Home Base, including:

  • Roomba storage that is secure.
  • Simpler to use and requires less supervision.
  • Maintain a strict cleaning routine.
  • Simple dock, recharge, and clean cycle.
  • Removes the need for you to manually charge your robot vacuum.

Do all Roombas have a docking station?

Do all Roombas have a docking station?

Whether old or new, all Roombas includes a docking station. The docking/charging station (also known as the Home Base) is included with your Roomba.

Even more interesting is the fact that a Roomba can function on many Home Bases.

If you have two or more Roombas, it wouldn’t be strange to discover one parked on the charging base of another.

If there are no obstructions, your Roomba will return home without fail. Also, check to see if the charger is operational.

Models, that have Home Bases are compatible?”

For instance, the Home Bases for Roomba i7, i3, e5, and 675 series are interchangeable.

Because of this, it’s easy to buy a separate Roomba docking station.

To keep your Home Base working smoothly, you should:

  • Store and keep in a cool, dry place.
  • Clean the unit at least once a week. 
  • Unplug the Home Base if not in use.
  • Wipe the charging contacts with a soft, dry cloth.
  • Keep out of children’s reach to prevent damage and electrical mishaps.
