Alfawise V8S Max product details
Vacuum robot with UV disinfection
There is a new, interesting household product from the Gearbest house brand “Alfawise”. The Alfawise V8S Max is an inexpensive robot vacuum with an additional wiping function and UV disinfection. You heard that right. There is a UV lamp under the vacuum robot that renders microorganisms harmless in the UVC range (optimal 253.7nm wavelength). How well this works is of course difficult to understand. However, it is a fact that UVC light has a particularly germicidal effect on bacteria, viruses, yeast and mold.
Wipe function with 3 levels of water delivery
Modern vacuum robots can usually not only vacuum, but also wipe. The Alfawise V8S Max can also be equipped with an additional water tank. The volume of the water tank is 350ml. The one of the dust container is a bit bigger with 600ml. The water delivery can be controlled in 3 stages. The robot vacuum cleaner has built in an electronic water pump for this. So that there are no water stains left after cleaning, the water delivery stops at the same time. The microfiber cleaning cloth can be removed and is therefore easy to clean.
The Alfawise V8S Max vacuum robot relies on a gyroscope navigation to orient itself in the room. The vacuum robot is able to remember its cleaning route and to follow it efficiently. The vacuum robot does not create a complex spatial map. This would require an LDS system, which is usually only found in higher-priced models. The robot hoover still recognizes obstacles. On the sides and below there are several infrared sensors that prevent collisions and falls.
Areas of the room that the vacuum robot should not enter can be excluded from the cleaning route using a virtual wall (magnetic tape). The magnetic tape is unfortunately not included in the scope of delivery and must be purchased separately. The V8S Max vacuum robot drives over bumps up to a height of 1.8cm.
1800 Pa and 3 cleaning modes
Alfawise specifies the suction force as 1800 Pa. The suction power can be adjusted in 3 stages. At full suction power, the noise level is around 65 dB. At the same time, you can choose from 3 cleaning modes. Mode 1 combines vacuuming and wiping. Mode 2 is a pure suction mode and mode 3 is a pure wiping mode. The capacity of the battery is 2600 mAh. That is enough to clean a 150 m² area with just one battery charge. The Alfawise V8S Max finds the way back to the charging station automatically.
App and Alexa control
The robot vacuum can be conveniently controlled and managed via the app (Weback). Voice control via Alexa and Google Home is also supported. Those who prefer it more pragmatic can use the remote control included in the scope of delivery.
