ILife V80 Max review: Extra large dustbin and powerful carpet cleaning from a two-in-one robot Review

The ILife V80 Max robotic vacuum appears to be incredibly identical to the A80 Max robotic vacuum I looked at final week. The two units are so alike that I had to spot stickers on each individual device and remote handle device so I could tell them apart.

But the differentiating issue of the ILife V collection, is that most of the V collection robots are multi-functionality robots and have mopping as very well as sweeping ability.

The V80 Max drinking water tank is not integrated in the box with the vacuum, it must be purchased independently. On the other hand, I can not obtain links to it on Amazon – nor on ILife’s individual site.

I did not get the drinking water tank with the V80 Max sample so I can not protect this function. As a substitute, I can only critique its use as a one functionality robotic.

The dustbin must be taken off just before the drinking water tank is inserted which usually means you have to have to sweep the floor correctly just before employing the tank. Many other two-in-1 robots will sweep and mop at the similar time.

Like the A80 Max the V80 Max has a strong 2000 Pa suction which usually means that it is fantastic on carpets, vacuuming carpet fibres out of even definitely aged carpets (over twenty years aged). It has a remote handle and an application to deal with the timetable and cleaning modes.

The application is a generic application across the ILife collection of robotic vacuums, and demonstrates two modes for cleaning: car and s-shaped cleaning.

If you want to use location or edge cleaning, these have to have to be established in the remote handle – not the application. You can also absolutely deal with the robotic employing the remote handle – so the application is not strictly required.

The dustbin dimension is extraordinary. At 750ml capacity, I think that it is the major dustbin capacity I have seen. This offers space for an added huge filter to get rid of particles. Most dustbins are close to the 400-500ml dimension, and can fill up immediately if you have a great deal of dust, or pet hair to remove from your flooring.

The V80 Max will immediately return to the charging station to recharge if the battery gets low, but I am not certain that it goes directly again to the spot it final cleaned. It does seem to be to wander close to a small.

The mapping function on the application is pretty primitive and nowhere around as correct as the mapping on LIDAR models. On the other hand at under $two hundred with the coupon, the V80 Max is drastically much less expensive than any vacuum with LIDAR.

One more differentiator to the A80 Max is that the V80 Max does not have a roller brush. As a substitute there is a U-shaped rubber strip to press dust into the path of the two side sweepers and the suction gap.

On the moreover side, you do not have to have to detangle the roller brushes , but if you are utilized to roller sweepers choosing up added pet hair you could possibly prefer the A80 Max with its roller brush.

The V80 Max is definitely noisy, and however it is supposed to be 60db even though in use, at one hundred% suction ability it surely would seem far louder than this – a little something to check out if your space is totally surfaced with tricky flooring.

I like the simplicity of the ILife vacuums, there are no voice prompts and only a few kinds of beeps to remember to enable you know if the robotic is trapped or has cliff sensor, or wheel/brush concerns. It beeps if you can not obtain it and does not beep in use. It is a good basic robotic vacuum.

All in all for $220, fewer $30 coupon and added five% price reduction employing the code 05ILIFEV80X the ILife V80 Max is surely just one to look at. It is an economical strong (albeit noisy) vacuum with a simplified application, and a complete remote handle to deal with its capabilities.

If you are cautious of supplying your info away by means of an application, then the ILife array of robotic vacuums with fantastic remote handle operation are surely the vacuums for you.
