Roborock’s have made a lot of improvements in the robot vacuum space during the last years. With the S7 MaxV Ultra revealed at CES2022 they add a myriad of convenience features and plenty of smart functions.
The goal of the company is to minimize the amount of interaction the customer need to do with their device on a daily basis. With the S7 MaxV Ultra they take another step forward towards this vision.
“We are giving our customers an even more hands-off solution, one that requires minimum interactions with the device. That means building a vacuum that can identify and adapt to items in its path, including carpets and obstacles, while also emptying and maintaining itself whenever necessary. With the S7 MaxV Ultra, customers are taking a step closer toward true autonomy in-floor cleaning.”Richard Chang
A self-cleaning mop and water tank inside the dock
With the release of the S7 MaxV Ultra, Robock has taken another big step forward. Self-emptying dustbins have been around for a while, now they are adding a self-cleaning mop that can be attached all the time with an integrated water tank inside the dock.
Consumers now only need to check the docking station to refill the water tank and empty the dust bin. Gone are the days when you needed to attach the mopping attachment and refill the water level inside it before mopping the floors.
You can keep the mop on at all times
One of the biggest problems with the mop feature in most 2-in-1 robot vacuums is that they can’t vacuum carpets or rugs while the mop attachment is installed. This is the reason why I never use the attachment on my Robocock S5.
Robockock has with their feature VibraRise technology solved this issue. The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra and the VibraRise technology will lift up the sonic mopper when it’s going over carpets or other obstacles. Allowing you to keep the mopping attachment on all the time without risking that the machine gets stuck onto a carpet. This is a really nice feature.
Camera for a smarter obstacle avoidance detection
The ReactiveAI 2.0 obstacle avoidance system, uses a camera to detect potential obstacles in its cleaning path. When an obstacle is identified, the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra will automatically avoid the obstacle without the need to bump into it like other models.
The camera allows it to detect the kind of surface it’s cleaning to adjust its suction intensity and cleaning pattern.
Empties and cleans itself after vacuuming
The dock now alongside the dustbin will also have a water tank for the mop attachment. This allows for almost hands-free operation when it comes to cleaning your house. The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra won’t require you to clean or wash off its mopping pad because the dock will do it for you, the dock will scrub down the mop attachments between the mopping cycles.
The dustbin is sized to hold dirt and desires for upwards of 7 weeks of cleaning.
The robot vacuum will be available to purchase in North America sometime in early Q2. The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra will be sold separately and with the smart dock bundled together. The vacuum alone has an MSRP of $859.99 and the complete bundle has an MSRP of $1399.99.
