Yea, grab it at $399. One of best purchases we have made and super WAF (and HAF!) factor.

There’s a new model that was released last month apparently, the Roborock T6. Supposedly better mapping and some cosmetic changes but perhaps not much else in the way of upgrades. Anyone know much about this and when/if it’ll be available in NZ?

I think the next worthy upgrade is a much bigger bin

Or a secondary bin on the charging unit that empties the robot's bin.

A question: if I took our Roborock cleaner into our sleepout, what would happen to the existing mapping?

I’m assuming it would have to create a new map for the second space, but what would it do when it was returned to the main house? I’m not keen on trialing this to see what happens because of the risk I’d lose all the no-go zones I’ve marked out so have to start from scratch.

Thanks!

Hopefully Xiaomi releases one like that.

 

Although I notice in that video they are trying to sell vaccum cleaner bags.

hi all, I wonder if anyone else have experience this issue with the battery (Xiaomi Robot Vac 1st Gen).

 

 

 

Charged to 100%, turn off power to charger. 12 hours later the battery status showed 78%. It was on sleep mode.

 

 

 

Is this normal? cheers

My battery definitely dies quickly if you turn it off. I don't have exact timings, but I assumed it was due to wifi always been on.
