The Vacuum robot brand "ILIFE", which once sprang from the Chinese electronics manufacturer "Chuwi", now includes a wide range of suction aids, which are also very popular in this country. In addition to models from the low price segment (eg Chuwi ILIFE V5), the manufacturer leads under the name ILIFE V7 or V7S also numerous models from the middle price segment. The ILIFE V7S Plus is already the third model of the V7S model series. Currently the robotic vacuum cleaner is still on sale. Nevertheless, we have already looked at the datasheet.
Sucking and wiping
Dust and water tank in one!
The suction robot is visually oriented to the predecessor models. The circular Kunstsotffgehäuse in the rose gold painting has one Diameter of 34 cm, 8.4 cm is high and brings 0.83 lbs on the scales. New is the combination of dust container and water tank. Instead of two separate containers, you only get one more container with one Capacity of 0.36 liters, Here, the container is divided into one 0.3 liter water chamber and a 0.06 liter dust chamber, The manufacturer expects this to be more efficient, no longer needs to be changed between the two containers depending on the application.
It would still be a powerful "downgrade" compared to the ILIFE V7S Pro. Although this offers two separate containers, but they have the same size, a significantly higher capacity of 0.5 or 0.4 liters. A dust chamber with only 0.06 liters of dust capacity would probably have to be emptied several times during a suction process. Efficiency looks different! There are good prospects regarding the Accessory compatibility of the V7S models among themselves. Already the models V7S and V7S Pro showed that the containers are compatible with each other. It is quite possible that the dust container of the predecessor, which is available separately, can also be used in the V7S Plus.
"I-dropping technology", As the vacuum robot moves, water is dispensed drop by drop to the microfiber cloth. If the vacuum robot stops, the water supply is stopped. As a result, a more uniform and long-lasting water distribution or water supply is possible. The wiper and holder are removable for easy cleaning.
Suction power and modes
The suction power of the ILIFE V7S Pro is 400 Pa. The volume achieved proud 68 dB, A side-mounted brush transports the dirt to the central main brush, which is grown by additional rubber slats and hair. With the party are the 4 classic suction profiles "Auto", "Spot", "Edge" and "Schedule", In contrast to the older ILIFE models, the cleaning takes place in the Auto mode no longer arbitrary. An implemented Artificial Intelligence (AI) ensures fully automatic and systematic room cleaning. in the Spot mode the vacuum robot works in circular movements. in the Edge Mode The vacuum robot is based on the room boundaries. Of the Schedule mode is a cleaning mode according to an individually definable schedule.
slopes masters the vacuum robot up to 15 °, Details with up to which amount carpet edges can be run over, the manufacturer does not. When the suction process is finished, the vacuum robot automatically returns to the charging station (Return-To-Home).
Crash and collision protection
In order to prevent collisions and crashes, the robotic vacuum cleaner with a total of 11 sensors fitted. Front-mounted sensors ensure that the ILIFE V7S Plus changes direction even before a collision. If a collision can not be prevented, an additional one provides "Bumper" for obstacle detection. Sensors mounted on the underside prevent driving over stairs or other edges. Thus, the vacuum robot can be used easily in areas with stair access. The sensors are of the infrared type. There is no laser or camera room recognition.
Battery and running time
The built-in Lithium-ion battery owns one Capacity of 2600 mAh, One battery charge is enough for one Running time of about 120 minutes. The charging time the manufacturer states 5 hours on. As soon as a low battery level is reached, the vacuum robot automatically moves back to the charging station (Return-To-Home).
ILIFE V7S Plus Vs. ILIFE V7S Pro
Describing the ILIFE V7S Plus as an upgrade to the most recently released ILIFE V7S Pro would probably be a mistake. Lots more dares ILIFE with the plus model a new attempt and sets the Focus on the (wet) wipe function of the robot. Due to the i-dropping technology and the combination of dust and water container, quite interesting approaches are understandable. A critical view is to the lower suction power, the same time very high dropping volume and the low capacity of the dust chamber to throw.
Until the end of April, the robotic vacuum cleaner is on sale. The advance sale price is just under 170 €. Of course, as soon as we get a test copy of the ILIFE V7S Plus, this preview will follow a detailed review.
