With robot vacuums, there’s no shortage of options to choose from. One that caught our eye at CES 2022 was the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra, as it has features you didn’t even know you wanted in a vacuum cleaner.
The docking system is definitely the first thing that draws your attention, as it’s a lot more advanced than most others on the market. Because the is a mop and a vacuum, the dock will clean the mop, so it’s ready for each use. It also has a dust bag that holds up to seven weeks of solids.
“Contrary to popular belief, robot vacuums still require hefty input from customers, both in terms of maintaining and operating,” said Richard Chang, founder and CEO of Roborock. “We are trying to change that by giving our customers an even more hands-off solution, one that requires minimum interactions with the device.”
The company also touted a new ReactiveAI 2.0 Obstacle Avoidance System, which it says is better at avoiding obstacles than previous versions. Not only that, but it can identify a room’s flooring materials. It will then recommend ideal cleaning methods such as suction power and scrub intensity based on the type of floor.
As far as battery life, the S7 MaxV Ultra can run for about three hours on a single charge, which is impressive.
Finally, the S7 MaxV Ultra features Roborock’s VibraRise technology. It’s a combination of sonic mopping with an automatic lift designed to transition smoothly over contrasting surfaces as it cleans.
All in all, it looks like Roborock got everything right with this vacuum. Between the feature-packed dock, the ability to avoid obstructions, and the intelligent mopping feature, the S7 MaxV Ultra is definitely primed to go head-to-head with iRobot and its Roomba offerings.
