Report on the robot vacuum cleaner iLife V5S pro
The Roomba is the best known name when it comes to vacuum robots. Newcomers and challengers for the throne would have to offer something special.
However, since Roombas are expensive for most people, other manufacturers are trying to offer the same features and functionality at a lower cost. iLife V5S Pro is one of the candidates seeking to provide the market with a wide range of features while keeping costs down. You can buy it for less than 200 dollars, but is this price too good to be true?
He gets the features we love about Neato Robotics older robots like the Botvac Connected and the D-Series but for a better price.
How is the design?
The iLife V5S Pro comes in a white and champagne colored gold combination with a single “clean” button in the middle, flanked by 2 LED strips to indicate the state of charge. He just looks great
To schedule a cleaning, press the timer button and wait for a beep. You should see the clock symbol and DAY start flashing on the display. You can then set the day and the time with the buttons Self-Charge and Point.
There are four different operating modes to choose from
The automatic cleaning mode allows the vacuum robot to navigate chaotically through their home, while Spot Cleaning mode instructs the iLife V5S Pro to focus on a specific area.
In spot cleaning mode, the vacuum cleaner robot moves in a small circle, which gradually becomes larger. This ensures that hard-to-clean or heavily soiled surfaces receive more attention.
The edge cleaning mode directs the vacuum robot close to the edges of the walls, so you get cleaner corners and baseboards. Without this mode he would stay away about 2.3 in from the wall. This mode tells him to find the next wall to clean all edges and walls in the room.
All of these modes use Smart Route Planning technology, which allows you to clean more than 99% of your floor space. The iLife V5S Pro has a nominal suction power of 850 Pa, which is more than enough to keep your floors clean. It can handle uneven floors with slopes of up to 15 degrees.
Comparison with other ILife robots
If you find all these things impressive about the robot, then you should know that there are still some other ILife robots on the market. These devices all cost under $ 200. Each is equipped with world-class features such as scheduling, pet grooming technology, automatic charging and navigation sensors.
In terms of wiping performance, the iLife V5s does a decent job of cleaning liquid dirt and any dirt. For long dried stains but he has problems. For example, the outlines of a coffee stain on the tile floor were still easily recognizable after wiping. But actually every wiper robot had problems so far.
How smart is he
This device cleans according to the chaos principle-that is, he does not really have a plan. Nevertheless, he has cleaned in our test 93% of the surface which is quite impressive for such a cheap device. Nothing was damaged. The only drawback is that a cleaning takes a long time.
Conclusion to the iLife V5S pro
The iLife V5S Pro is ideal for homes with bare floors without carpeting. After vacuuming, you can use it to wipe your floors.
Note, however, that you can not wipe and vacuum at the same time. These must be carried out separately one after the other.
The vacuum robot is very quiet, as long as it does not run at full power. It can run silently, but the suction power drops to about 500 Pa. In normal operation, you can reach up to 850 Pa, but it is much louder.
The iLife V5S Pro vacuum cleaner is a godsend for those who can not afford a Roomba.
Overall, he is a solid, albeit unspectacular purchase. In addition, you get the most important features that you will see on more expensive devices, as well as some additional features such as the wipe function and the remote control. He is not perfect in running, but he is fascinating enoughto be a good price-performance ratio. A tip from us. Also look at Ebay and compare the price. They also have new devices and you can save a lot of money.
