$219 (for the G30) or $279 (for the G40) sounds almost too good to be true, but they’ve got fairly good reviews.
And they come with mapping and are compatible with Alexa.
Hoping that 1500pa is sufficient for day to day vacuum cleaning.
Tag me in for the review too please. I'm planning on upgrading from my much-loved Samsung Robovac, I passed over the Kogan product thinking it was too cheap for a good product. But if you take the marketing cost out then I guess most brands would be lots cheaper. I'm hoping you have a good review coming, I'd much rather spend <$300 than >$1300
Megabyte - so geek it megahertz
neb: No experience with them, but looking at the specs for the abovementioned G40 it lists a "2600mAh Lithium battery" which seems rather inadequate to do anything useful unless they're doing barely any work with it. The tank is tiny, and probably will be used to damp down a microfibre cloth that wipes the floor rather than doing any actual scrubbing. So I wouldn't expect much from one.
To be honest...it's a pile of rubbish. I received the Kogan G60 earlier this week and have tested it.
I'll be returning it.
It did pick up some hair etc, but it was a nightmare to clean it afterwards.
Still, the majority of things isn't being picked up, neither on hard floor, nor on carpet.
The mopping function is a joke.
Furthermore, I didn't get more than 45 mins out of a clean, before the battery was empty (although it states 90 mins).
I'll be uploading a short review to YouTube, when I get around to it.
Don't waste your money.
I bought the Ecovacs Deebot 950 and it’s awesome if you are looking for a good robot vacuum and mopper. The suction power is the strongest of all tested and the mopping function is great.
Does it actually mop the floor or does it just make it wet?
danepak: @pulsta Is it easy to clean it?
I spent quite some time having to remove hair from the Kogan.
It was all tangled.
Short answer...No - the brush and fittings are pretty much identical. Only way around this issue would be to clean it regularly so that it doesn't tangle on itself.
As a comparison, I’d clean out the roller on our Roborock vacuum (an S50] once every couple of months, and that’s with it running four times a week. It does occasionally get stuff wrapped around the roller, but that’s usually a cable or something the boys have left on the floor. Certainly not feasible to clean it out after every use, and if that’s how the Kogan is going to operate I agree about returning it...
danepak: This was what it looked like after using it once.
Spent a good 15 mins cleaning the brush. Pretty much defies the purpose.
Wow that's a lot after 15mins! I last cleaned mine after it had done 4hrs of vacuuming (so about a weeks worth) and it wasn't anywhere near as bad as that.
