RolliBot BL618 Review – What People Think About The Automatic Vacuum Cleaner?

RolliBot BL618 Robot Vacuum Cleaner

There are so many great vacuum cleaners out there. That said, if what you want is a set-it-and-forget-it machine, then the RolliBot BL618 should be added to the list. At a fraction of the price of the Roomba, the Rolli still comes with a great set of features. Read the review below to get familiar with the properties of the little bot.

The RolliBot BL618 works based on position sensing detector (PSD) technology. It senses walls and recognizes stairs. There are reports that it gets stuck sometimes but for the price, you should not expect it to be perfect as far as navigation. Based on the customer feedback, it does a good job navigating furniture and different rooms.

You can program the machine to do your daily vacuuming, sweeping, and even mopping. This comes with a detachable mop. Not everyone will appreciate this feature but still, the option is nice. The onboard UV light is also a pleasant bonus to deal with nasty germs. A remote control is shipped with the vaccuum, allowing you to manually control your unit.

A total of four cleaning modes are included. In the Auto mode, it adjusts its cleaning according to situation. When the Spot mode is selected, the robot will clean in a spiral pattern when a very dirty area is detected. The Edge cleaning feature is as it is stated, a mode where it will clean along the wall or obstacles.

This domestic robot is powered by a 2400 mAH, 14.4V NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) battery. Charging time, based on the manual, is 200-300 minutes. Cleaning time is 100 minutes at maximum. With the self docking and charging feature, this home automation robot will make your life easier. Of course, you can use the remote to guide it back to the charging base.

To ensure clean air emissions, this little bot comes equipped with primary filter and hepa air filter. Both are cleanable but still require replacement (Max life span is 24 months). A pack of HEPA Air Filter for this vacuum costs around $15. Max life span for the side brushes is 12 months.

The vast majority of feedback for this product has been very positive. Most of the reviewers on Amazon have rated the floor cleaning robot at least 4/5 stars. The mini version, BL100, is also available if you decide a smaller unit would suit your needs better.

No product is perfect. There are no rollers underneath like the Roomba does. If you desire a machine that works well on medium to high pile carpets, then consider investing in another product. Customer feedback indicates that it functions best on hardwood, tile, and laminate floor. Some people have also reported that it occasionally has a little trouble finding home.

Despite the features of this robotic vacuum that have received criticism, a number of its characteristics have impressed many customers.

It might not have a very strong suction but customers, including pet owners, generally have been pleased with its cleaning performance. The Rollibot works well in homes which are primarily hard flooring. Coming with intelligent suction adjustment, people have reported that it has no trouble moving from one surface to another.

Customers have also been impressed with how easy the RolliBot floor cleaner is to set up and to operate. The dust bin is washable. The capacity is only 0.5L so you might need to empty it often but this should not be a deal breaker. Customers have described the dust bin to be easy to empty.

Depending on the enviroment, the RolliBot BL618 can be a good choice as either a primary cleaner or a supplement to a regular vacuum machine. Not everyone is pleased with this robotic vacuum. However, if you have mostly hard floors and are looking to automate some of the vacuuming in your home then based on user reviews, functions, and price this little gadget is worth considering.
