Bosch Athlet 25.2v Battery Vacuum Cleaner


Owned for 3 years, used Daily

Stress Points
Batteries got worn out from daily use. Which is fair, batteries do die. However Bosch implemented a Mega328p microcontroller that runs a "software fuse" which prevents you from replacing the batteries rendering the device useless after batteries wear out. There are ways to download and hack the code but it is very very technical and you have to be familiar with microcontrollers and electronics. The device screams anti repair.
Positive Remarks
Fair price range, good suction.
Would you buy it again?
