Vacuum cleaning and wiping at the same time…the industry’s highest suction power of 5100Pa

Automatic wet mop cleaning, sewage treatment, water replenishment, dust emptying

Reinforced obstacle recognition function and added companion animal recognition and avoidance function

The only downside is the rather high price and the noise and volume.

A robot vacuum cleaner is a representative home appliance that has improved the quality of human life. Robot vacuum cleaners have been around for about 20 years and have had to help with high-level housework, such as moving, inhaling, wiping, and emptying on behalf of humans. At first, it was shunned by consumers for its excessively high price and stupid skills, but as it evolved, the price range and its performance varied greatly.

It was said that people want to sit when they are standing and lie down when they are sitting. As basic conditions such as sensors, batteries, and threshold crossing have been standardized upward to some extent, there has always been a wish that wet mopping can be done by itself. But suddenly, the king of the end appeared who solved these problems in one shot. Roborak’s S7 MaxV Ultra is capable of not only absorbing dust, but also automatic cleaning with a wet mop, automatic water replenishment, and automatic internal cleaning.

The S7 MaxV Ultra, which started pre-ordering through the open market in April, is the most expensive robot vacuum cleaner and is rated as the best in performance. The design and performance of the existing S7 MaxV line were maintained and additional functions were upgraded. Following the ‘S7 MaxV Plus’ with a new ‘auto dust suction’ function, I tried the latest version ‘S7 MaxV Ultra’ with an additional ‘automatic wet mop cleaning and water refill’ function for a week.

In the S7 MaxV series, the main body robot is ‘Roborak S7 MaxV’, and all of them are the same. However, the satisfaction of the product varies greatly depending on the configuration of the ‘Empty Wash Fill Dock’, a main body maintenance device. The biggest feature is that it maximizes the convenience of cleaning with the Empty Wash Fill Dock, which means emptying the dust bin, automatic wet mop washing, and internal cleaning.

First of all, the basic of a vacuum cleaner is suction power. This product boasts the highest suction power of 5100Pa in the industry. Compared to the previous 2nd generation Roborak S5 MAX (2000Pa), it absorbed dust with more than double the suction power. Obstacle avoidance and recognition ability were also far beyond expectations. It took some time for the first mapping to figure out the structure of the house through 3D structured light scanning, but the next time it was cleaned, it took care of the part that was lost in the past and avoided it.

It is basic to avoid objects on the floor by itself, and there is also a function to recognize and avoid companion animals. The floor and existing robot vacuum cleaners could not go over the chin of the clothes dryer and had to be removed by hand, but the S7 MaxV Ultra made it relatively easy to fall over the chin and save the trouble of going to rescue the vacuum cleaner that cried (?) every time. When the light is turned off during cleaning, the auxiliary light automatically turns on to continue cleaning.

What I personally felt was the most innovative is the all-in-one function for mopping and vacuuming at the same time. After vacuuming, the time required for an additional wet mop was cut in half. It is also possible to set the washing time for the wet mop separately. When the set time is over, it goes back to the dock to clean itself.

In addition, it has an auto-lifting function to move the mop when returning to the dock. You can rest assured that you do not rub the floor with a dirty rag while returning the already cleaned floor. Thanks to this, even when you want to clean for a long time, you can set a washing time and leave it without worrying about it.

Personally, I was skeptical of the wet mop function of the robot vacuum cleaner every time, but this product has a wet mop concentration mode in addition to the general vacuum suction mode, so it was convenient to increase the washing time for the same space. It is good for covering a wide range of many foreign substances. It is a sonic vibration system that vibrates 3000 times per minute.

Unlike rotating products, it was good for removing foreign substances by cleaning it like scraping it with a left and right scraper. When I opened the dock sump to check that it was properly washed, it was filled with water that was darker than the one I had washed by hand. The dirty inside of the dock is automatically cleaned after washing with a wet cloth. However, I had to manually wipe the sieve on the side of the plate and the level of stagnant water on the bottom. There is some noise in the process of draining sewage water.

Surprisingly, you don’t have to take it out by hand to fill the water tank. The dock automatically refills water. In addition, there is an automatic dust emptying function that automatically emptys the dust accumulated in the dust bin of the robot vacuum cleaner, eliminating the need to empty the dust bin for up to 7 weeks. I haven’t emptied the dust bin even once in a week of actually using it. However, the dust bag cannot be washed separately and needs to be replaced periodically.

The Roboroc S7 MaxV Ultra is also equipped with a camera and microphone. It is a video monitoring function that enables video calls with family members or companion animals at home. The built-in camera does not store images, while the part where the camera is located moves into the dock when the dust bin is emptied and the wet mop is complete, reducing the potential for privacy risks.

What is somewhat disappointing is that the suction part is in the middle of the body, so it is not possible to completely clean the wall or door gap. In addition, there is no hot air drying function in other brands, so it is a natural drying method with a mop and bottom surface floating, but I am a little skeptical that the mop will smell during the rainy season.

As soon as Roborak launched the S7 MaxV Ultra on the 18th, pre-orders for 1000 units were sold out. The shipping price is 159 million won.

▲Target:

– A ‘gad’ robot vacuum cleaner with automatic wet mop washing, sewage treatment, water replenishment, and dust emptying functions.

– Vacuum cleaning and wet mopping at the same time.

– Propulsion power that exceeds the jaw of 2cm.

▲ Points to note:

– A bit high price for a robot vacuum cleaner

– Due to the bulkiness of the dock, it is impossible to install it in a studio or a very small house.
