I think they're a decent robot, but i wouldn't buy one.
I have better things to spend my money on.

Anyway, so you've tried two batteries and both don't work?
Have you tested the batteries to see their voltage after charge? It may be the charger is broken...

To do this, turn the robot on (the robot will charge only if the button under the chassis is “ON”).
• Place it manually on its recharging station (Spykee will be with its back to the base).
It will begin to recharge automatically.

The newly purchased product's battery pack is not charged. Charge before operating;

1 - Plug the female connector of the charger into the docking station's male plug;
2 - Plug the charger into an electrical outlet;
3 - (Re)charge for about 4 to 5 hours;
4 – When the (re)charging is over, take the robot out of the docking station.

Have you tested the batteries using volt meter to see their voltage after charge? it should be about 11.2V when full charge.
