Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner review: a good housekeeper for you

Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner review: a good housekeeper for you

By  Linky Johnson 2018-11-01 708 0

2018 is a year of rapid development for smart home devices. We are usually dazzled by a large number of smart devices springing up in the market. However, the practicality is the most important for us users. The vacuum cleaners are good choices. Now, let’s take a look at a very popular device - Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner.

What are the upgrades?

For some consumers, the first thing to see when purchasing a product is its appearance. However, when the box is opened, the first visual experience brought by the Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner is that it has a very good look. The black body is covered with three "matte grey" buttons on the front of the body. Compared with the previous product, the Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner put the laser sensor in the head position, and the naked eye looks more coordinated.

The front of the body is equipped with three physical buttons, the left and right side are automatic recharging and partial cleaning, and the middle is power button. Among them, the annular indicator light on the power button can show the electric quantity. If the indicator light is more than 20% white and less than 20% red, the user can more easily identify the electric quantity, which is a commendable design. The local sweeping button, on the other hand, can sweep the 1.5 and 2-meter area around the center of the main engine.

Next comes the laser scanning sensor, the core part of the device. When the machine is turned on, it can sweep the room at a speed of 5X360° per second on the basis of path planning. Obstacles in the environment also form spots in the sensor, which are transmitted to the sensor according to the pixel signal of the spot. By calculating the center distance of the laser ranging sensor, the sweeping robot can draw a map of the room for more accurate cleaning.

It is worth mentioning that the Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner adds an "omni-directional pressure sensor" to the top of the laser range finder, which mainly senses slight collisions. For example, when the robot sweeps the floor, it enters the bottom of the cabinet or gets stuck under the low sofa, which improves the ability of the product to adapt to the environment, and also protects the laser sensor.


In addition, this product is also equipped with "wall sensor", which is used for the sweeping robot to keep a distance of about 10mm from the wall when sweeping along the edge gap. Different from other sweeping machines, this product does not move closer to the wall when working, making the cleaning efficiency extremely efficient.

Compared with the previous product, a water tank was added.


The upgrade dust box

From the picture, the dust box of the Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner is better sealed. We can see that there is adhesive tape protection on the dust suction port and the air outlet behind it. After experiencing it, this design can fully keep the air duct sealed so that the efficiency is not affected.

It is mainly used to clean the hair attached to the main brush or side brush, it is placed on the left side of the dust box, and it can be used at any time.

Washable filter

This time, the Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner uses a washable filter. A waterproof teflon is wrapped around the filter base. With this design, even if you use it for normal washing for a year, it can maintain 95% filtration performance, thus reducing the cost of maintenance for the cleaning robot in the later stage.

This sweeping robot is mainly designed with a single brush, which can deeply clean the ground. In order to maximize the cleaning, this product has improved the barrier breaking ability from the original 1.5cm to 2.0cm. When this function is activated on the APP, it can automatically recognize the carpet and turn on the maximum suction to clean up the dirty things one by one.

Smaller charging base

The Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner adopts a new infrared recharge technology, which has higher recharge efficiency.

In addition, the Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner uses super large capacity 5200mAh lithium battery, and the endurance life is longer. The Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner supports the function of automatic charging and avoids the trouble of manual charging. The robot can locate the charging pile with the infrared charging function, and it can charge after connecting the interface with the charging pile. After completing the charging, you can continue to return to the cleaning until the task is completed.


Sweep function

At present, many sweeping machines in the market have an integrated sweeping and mopping design, but most of the products are not ideal after user experience, and after experiencing the Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner, my impression of not being able to sweep and drag together has changed.

water tank

It is very convenient to install or disassemble the water tank. It can be installed simply by pushing the water tank in its position. When disassembling, the user needs to press the buttons on both sides of the water tank to take it out, which is extremely convenient.

Mop accessories

The mop is made of Velcro design, and the fitting place of the water tank is also made of slot design. By this design, the biggest benefit is that when the machine mops the floor, there will be no draping edge condition. In addition, only areas that the machine has cleaned can be wiped wet.

APP

After connecting with Xiaomi APP, more functions can be achieved, such as map viewing, path cleaning, remote control, regular cleaning and reminder of consumables replacement.


When connected, you click anywhere on the map of APP, and it will go to the area immediately.

After clicking the "recharge" button, the Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner will look for the plug base and automatically charge it. But it should be noted that the socket must be kept in working state. It completes charging after seeing that the indicator is lightened. Or the robot will run around like a headless, looking for a charging base.

After clicking, the Roborock sweeper will clean automatically. It should be noted that if the machine is in a state of low power, please charge it before cleaning. It should also be noted that it is best to store all kinds of wire on the ground when cleaning, so as to avoid electrical power failure and damage caused by product dragging during cleaning. If the product is cleaned for less than 10 minutes, it will clean twice by default.

Through experience, the Roborock robotic vacuum cleaner upgrade is obvious. It not only maintains the path-planning capabilities previously based on laser range-finding navigation, but also greatly improves the cleanliness experience and intelligence, from dusty reminders to more intelligent recharges. It also adds sweeping and dragging functions to previous generations, which undoubtedly provides us with more help in our daily life. Of the products of the same price, I still can not find the second one that can compete with this one.
