Roborock is undoubtedly one of the market leaders in robot vacuum cleaners, which has innovated with its wet cleaning technology for floors by vibration. However, the latter is less efficient than robots using rotating skates, a fact that the Roborock Q Revo is about to change.
Robot vacuums are no longer limited to just this role. Thus, more and more models offer a wet floor cleaning function, an area in which Roborock has been one of the pioneers. To simulate the friction of a classic mop, the manufacturer uses vibration technology which is quite effective. However, it can’t handle floors as well as competitors with rotating skids like the Evocovacs Omni X1. A fact that the new Roborock Q Revo must change and it is not the only evolution on the menu.
Roborock kisses the skates
At first glance, this new Q Revo looks like all the other robots of the brand. You have to turn it over to see the most obvious change, the arrival of two round pads. They are driven by a double rotation system which rotates at a speed of 200 rpm.
The aim is to exploit the friction effects produced by the pads and the kinetic energy of the rotary motion. The icing on the cake is its automatic lifting function which can reach 7 mm. This robot can therefore detect a rug or a room with carpet, and treat it without risking moistening it or leaving traces of dirt. A very intelligent service and that Roborock is the only one to offer.
A revisited base
Roborock’s self-cleaning base has been completely redesigned and is closer to what an Ecovacs X1 Omni offers. Thus, the three bins are no longer visible, but camouflaged in a one-piece docking station that performs the self-emptying of the dust bin and the water bin of the Q Revo, the self-filling of the robot’s water bin and washing the mop with hot air drying (45°). The two water tanks (clean and dirty water) have a capacity of 5 L each, the one dedicated to dust and residues of 2.7 L.
The Roborock Q Revo announces a suction power of 5,500 Pa, combined with an all-rubber brush. Equipped with a laser rangefinder and a camera, it should offer excellent mapping and above all know how to avoid obstacles. Note that no information on its ability to detect animal droppings has been given.
The Roborock Q Revo will be available from July 15 at a price of 849 euros, a very aggressive price puts this type of all-in-one robot at less than 100 euros and risks undermining the Dreamer L10S Ultra which displayed up to now the best value for money on the market.
