Report for the robot vacuum iLife A8
The iLife A8 should be the new flagship of the Chinese. Previously, it was the A6 with a very good suction performance. The suction robot A8 looks extremely modern, but is very similar to its predecessor. Its shiny surface fits into every household and makes a great impression. A beautiful minimalist design with a black surface. With a height of only 2.8 inch , the robot can vacuum under most furniture and catch dust and dirt in hard to reach places.
How good is the cleaning performance ....
The device is one of the few vacuum robots that have a brain despite the slim design. The vacuum cleaner robot is equipped with a 360-degree camera, which together with a special algorithm helps to navigate safely through the home. Through the three built-in graphics chip, the vacuum cleaner robot can create and save a map of space. The excellent suction power assisted by the CyclonePower cleaning system thoroughly cleans the iLife A8 in one operation with side brushes, roller brushes and powerful suction. If the battery goes flat, it charges itself and starts again at the last cleaned point. In addition, a rubber brush is included in the delivery. This is perfect for animal lovers. This robs the vacuum robot nowhere.
Does the robot vacuum cleaner detect all obstacles and stairs?
The iLife A8 is very responsive to obstacles and barely or only slightly rides against it. As a result, furniture is not damaged and cleverly avoided. Stairs are reliably detected and the robot brakes automatically.
Two brushes are included
Two alternative brushes are included: The bristle brush is good for carpeting or carpet, as it can easily pick up dirt. The rubber brush is better for hard floors and special good for animal hair, because nothing can get tangled.
How good is the battery
iLife vacuum robot run usually longer than the competition in the market and there has been the iLife A8 nothing changed. It comes with a Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 2600 mAh, which lasts for 2 hours. The charging of the device takes about 3 hours. Many devices on the market in the price range do not make 2 hours.
What is the iLife A8 talking about?
The feature you’ll love is the Voice Alert Assistant called i-Voice. The robot informs you about the charge status of the battery or when the cleaning process is completed. For almost every status, there is the appropriate voice message. You always know exactly.
Remote or even a mobile app
The display on the remote is very useful. This makes the vacuum robot easy to program and control and you do not have to pay attention to stupid beeps. According to the manufacturer, a mobile app will be added later. When that will be, you do not know. With the app, it should be possible to watch live pictures from the camera of the device. In addition, the room should still be displayed.
Conclusion to the iLife A8
The device plays with the equipment and performance at a price around the 300 pounds in its own league. No device on the market at such a price has a comparable good navigation. Concerning its predecessor, the A6 which navigated by chaos principle, the iLife A8 has improved a lot. If the mobile app really comes then the vacuum robot is a real highlight. Clear buy recommendation from me. 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.
You would rather have a robot that can do more … then have a look at the DEEBOT 900. This is currently our test winner or he is too expensive for you then take a look at the robotic vacuum cleaner under 300 pounds.
