Hands on with the Yeedi K700 robot vacuum: a super 2-in-1 robot vacuum and mop for a low tech life Review

Maria J. Danford

The Yeedi K700 robot vacuum will wash and mop your floors quietly and efficiently – with no the need to have for voice management – or a complicated-to-put in app.

The K700 is a good hunting robot vacuum. White with a rose gold edging, it appears to be sleek and attractive. There is only 1 button on the prime of the robot – with a scanning digital camera for mapping the room boundaries.

Inside the box there is the vacuum, the mopping module which replaces the 600ml capability dust bin, a docking station and a straightforward distant management, complete with AAA batteries.

The K700 does not have an app. It also has no way to routine any cleaning plan possibly as a result of voice activation, or by way of a routine on the distant management.

This robot is appropriate for the technophobe who is cautious about configuring any configurations on an app, or setting a timed routine. It reminds me of the ILife A4S distant management vacuum, or the Amaray A800 I looked at previous yr, for a again to principles thoroughly clean with no the trouble of an app.

The robot can be controlled by making use of the distant handset which you place at the robot to start off or pause its activity.

You can also deliver the robot again to its charging station or configure it do thoroughly clean in location, or edge mode. Its default is Vehicle mode. When its battery is small, immediately after all around 2 several hours cleaning, it will return to its dock to demand.

When vacuuming, the robot zig-zags across the room and moves with a described sample. To maximize suction mode to a most of 2000Pa, double simply click the ability change when the robot is in use.

If you want to mop lightly soiled difficult floors, change the dustbin to the optional mopping module, filled with drinking water. Connect the microfibre fabric, and start off the robot.

The K700 has no boundaries to mark no-go parts, so if you want to avert it from mopping the carpet, shut the doorway to the room or roll up a rug. The K700 will mop for about 3 several hours and sweep up any debris on the flooring.

I like these multi-perform sweeping and mopping robots this kind of as the iLife V8S, Deebot Ozmo 920, and the Roborock S5. You do not need to have to sweep the flooring just before mopping it – a very practical characteristic if you are in a hurry.

I do recommend having said that, making use of the mopping module daily so your flooring does not get far too soiled. This module – like other 2-in 1 robot vacuums I have tried, will only eliminate light-weight soiling from the flooring.

I do like that you can also incorporate a disinfectant solution up to a ratio of 1:100 to the mopping tank, and rinse the tank immediately after use, for further peace of mind.

While it was complicated for me to bear in mind to use the Yeedi every single working day – I like to configure these robots to thoroughly clean to a routine, and ignore about them.

Quite a few periods, I forgot to invoke the distant management at the regular time each individual working day. Nevertheless, the moment I commenced the robot it discovered all of the parts in the home to sweep or mop.

As the robot has no stored map info, at times, it has difficulty returning to its base, at times taking 20 minutes or so to find its charging station. I have reviewed so lots of robots which have an app, and know where to return to the base station, that I discovered it irritating at times.

Nevertheless, for simplicity, this is a good device. If you know a technophobe, who could reward from a robot vacuum then the Yeedi K700 is excellent for them. But make confident they do not misplace the distant management.
