The iLife V9e robotic vacuum represents a phase up for iLife vacuum technological know-how. Transferring absent from the classic robotic vacuum styles, the V9e robotic has reinvented the way it sweeps flooring.

At somewhere around twelve inches in diameter, the V9e is smaller sized than most of the robotic vacuums I have reviewed, and taller at four.four inches. It is significantly louder much too —  but why?

This robotic vacuum works by using a cyclone system to suck up grime particles to the iLife’s 700ml dustbin. It also has no roller brush as an alternative there is a tender silicone rubber mouthpiece under the vacuum that sucks up particles into the machine. The further noise is owing to the robot’s 4000Pa suction electric power – to drive the cyclone.

The dustbin has a a few-stage filter system together with a HEPA filter. Ilife claims that this removes up to ninety nine.95% of very small particles and allergens up to .three microns in dimensions.

I have been unhappy with the app functionality in some earlier iLife styles.

The ILife A80 would only link to the main router in my property, The A9 app would not link to the product as it was optimised for US customers only, and the A7 would not link at all. Only when I looked at the ILife V80 could I link to the app.

The corporation has performed a great deal of function on its app and connection was straightforward. Agenda and method environment can be established in the app. You can use auto, and edge method, or crank the motor up with max method – at 3000Pa. Spot method boosts the suction electric power to 4000Pa.

If the V9e senses that its battery is getting low – right after almost two several hours of procedure, It will return back again to the dock, recharge, and resume cleaning when it is charged.

The V9e – like other ILife styles — does not have LIDAR so It will not build an exact map of the area. As it does not have an exact map, its cleaning path does seem to be a very little bit random moving in parallel zig zags across the floor.

The map reveals simply an approximation of the room it has cleaned. Nevertheless, it generally finds its way back again to its charging dock – I only have to rescue it and acquire it back again to the dock about a single in 6 situations of use.

The map in the app bears very little relation to the rooms cleaned – still the V9e does include all of the available room.

All in all for a very little over $two hundred, the iLife V9e robotic vacuum is a outstanding, reasonably priced single-function robotic vacuum that is truly powerful in use. 

Its cyclone dustbin does appear  to gather a great deal of dust from carpets and tough flooring, and its lack of roller brush signifies it will want less routine maintenance over time. The compact iLife V9e robotic vacuum is absolutely value your consideration.
