SHOP IT: Amazon, $216 (originally $271)
What is it?
A programmable vacuum specially designed for cleaning under low-hanging furniture and tight corners with ease. For an automatic clean, users can use its controller and choose from three cleaning modes: Auto, edge and space. When it needs charging, the vacuum automatically searches the charging dock and returns home when battery gets low.
How does it work?
Small yet powerful (only three inches above the ground), the ILIFE V3s Pro Robotic Vacuum is equipped with a powerful suction passage for effectively picking up dirt, dust, pet hair and fur without tangling caused by hairs blocking into its roller. It also features three infrared sensors that intelligently detects possible bumps and obstacle-free cleaning condition such as stairs to avoid falling off.
The V3s Pro can glide across from hard floor to low-pile carpet or ride over door trims for smooth cleaning.
What are customers saying?
“I have all hardwood floors and tile. I also have a few throw rugs, some thick, some thin. [The vacuum] does a perfect job on the floors, and has no problems navigating over the throw rugs (though [it] might turn up a corner, he will run back over it and still get it clean),” says one five-star review. “I don’t think your robot friend would work very well if you have a lot of or mostly carpet. If you have hardwood or mostly hardwood, you will love your new robot friend.”
“My partner and I have pets and we both work and we have hardwood floors and we like a clean common space. We were sweeping 2-3 times a day and still getting frustrated in between. Then came [our vacuum]. Our house is so clean, our life is so happy! We got it on sale. I can't think of any reason to get a more expensive vacuum unless you just have to have the app integration. Or maybe if you want the mopping feature, because that would be nice,” echoes another. “[It] automatically turns on every morning and goes until she gets low on battery. [It] then docks herself to charge. The first few runs, we had to empty the container every 20 minutes, but now. It can hold a day's worth pretty easily.”
