Features & Performance
The AIRROBO P10 is a simple robot vacuum with basic functions you can find on other budget robots. It has a compact design since there is no LiDAR sensor on top. Inside the box, you just have the robot, a charging dock, a power cord, and a remote control. Since there is only one button on top of the vacuum, it is much easier and more intuitive using the remote control. Besides, you can also control the vacuum by pairing it with the Tuya Smart app. After that, you could also use your voice to control it using Amazon Alexa or Google Home. You don’t have to install the app and it is alright because the remote control has all you need for this vacuum.
It is pretty easy to start using this vacuum. You’ll just need to turn it on, place it on the charging dock, wait until the battery is fully charged, then start cleaning your house. Once turned on, the vacuum cleans my house in a zig-zag pattern and I am quite surprised with its navigation system. Although the P10 is equipped with just some sensors on the front, it could detect large objects and obstacles accurately. Therefore, I can see it successfully avoid bumping into my furniture. However, it couldn’t detect small objects or cords on the ground, so it still gets stuck with cables sometimes and I had to lift it up to remove the cables. I’d recommend you to organize cables and don’t leave anything on the floor.
After finishing the first room, the P10 moves on the next one smoothly and cleans in the same pattern. It takes just over 35 minutes to clean the 2 rooms; The cleaning time is really amazing considering the fact that it doesn’t have complicated navigation system like some expensive vacuums on the market. Obviously, if you just need to clean a couple of rooms in your house, you absolutely don’t have to pay more for those fancy features like LiDAR, AI camera, or self-emptying dustbin. The only disadvantage is that the robot can’t go straight back to the dock after completing a cleaning session; It still has to wander around to locate the dock.
In terms of cleaning performance, I am quite satisfied with the AIRROBO. It is equipped with two sidebrushes and a main brush at the center; Moreover, the maximum suction power is admirable at 2,600 Pa. It has 4 operating modes and I rarely had to use it at the maximum power. Probably, you will just need to boost the suction power when cleaning carpets or rugs. At standard mode, the 2600mAh Li-ion battery could last more than an hour. Therefore, it could easily clean my whole floor on a single charge.
Overall, the AIRROBO is a very capable basic robot vacuum to clean small spaces. It proves that you don’t have to spend a fortune to clean your house. It is a good value at $149 but the price might increase after the first week of launch, so you should order it soon if you’re interested in the product.
