ILIFE A6 vacuum robot - New model 2017

ILIFE welcomes a new vacuum robot to its ranks. The ILIFE A6 is a vacuum robot released at the beginning of 2017 with a powerful “Gen 2 CyclonePower System” and “BladeAway” brush. You can find out all the information about the vacuum robot and what is actually behind the terms in this article.

ILIFE A6 suction robot

The vacuum robot brand that was once sold under the name “Chuwi ILIFE”, which is now only marketed under “ILIFE”, is expanding to include another model: the ILIFE A6. There are now more than 10 models of the ILFE A and V series available, which differ primarily in details. It is precisely these small subtleties that people try to make palatable with terms like “Gen 2 CyclonePower 3-Stage System” or “BladeAway”.

Gen 2 Cyclone Power3-Stage System

Sounds cool at first, but what's behind it? This term means the combination of the two side brushes and the main brush (3 stage) as well as the vacuum cleaner motor. So there is no special technology behind it. Mainly a more powerful motor was installed, which, in contrast to the other models, achieves a suction power of 1.000 Pa.

BladeAway rubber brush

The so-called BladeAway brush of the ILIFE A6 is more of an innovation. In contrast to the previously used round brush with plastic bristles, this model is the first to use a round brush with rubber blades, similar to the products from iRobot. The advantage of such a rubber roller is that dirt and trapped hair can be removed more easily. In addition, other robotic vacuum cleaners with rubber brushes have already shown that dust in particular is vacuumed more efficiently.

Invisible wall, floor roll and volume

With the ILIFE X5 The manufacturer also introduced the “Invisible Wall”. This can be used to separate an area that the robot vacuum cleaner does not drive over during its cleaning tour. One unit is included in the scope of delivery as an accessory. A rather inconspicuous innovation is the small floor roller, which is located opposite the control roller. According to ILIFE, this achieves even better traction and makes it easier to drive over smaller obstacles such as carpet edges. The removable dust chamber of the ILIFE A6 has a capacity of 0.3 liters. The two integrated HEPA filters are replaceable. There is no wet mopping function.

When the battery charge is exhausted, the robot hoover automatically finds its way back to the charging station.
