Should I buy the Ecovacs N79
Related: Ecovacs Deebot N79, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 18 days ago

The Ecovacs Deebot N79 is definitely worth trying out. It’s an affordable model that cleans effectively. It has a fantastic suction power of 1000 pa, a 3 in 1 brush that cleans allergens, it cleans well around edges, and a great battery life of 4 hours. It features 4 cleaning modes: Auto, Spot,Edge, and Single room cleaning mode. It's an ideal choice for pet owners, and even has a hepa filter. A downside to this device is you’ll have to come in and rescue it every now and then because it may get stuck. It also has a rather lengthy charge time.

Is internet or Wi-Fi required in the home for the EcoVacs DeeBot N79 to operate??
Related: Ecovacs Deebot N79, Ecovacs Deebot N78, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by Sharron 28 days ago

No, wifi is not required for your Ecovac deebot n79 to operate. The wifi feature gives you the ability to control the vacuum from your smartphone, but the ecovac also has a normal remote control, so it shouldn't be an issue. The wifi feature will give you a free remote in the case you lose the regular one.

I am very interested in the Ecovacs Deebot brand. I am unsure if I want to choose the n79 version or the m80 version. It seems to me that the only difference between the two is that the m80 has an optional mopping system and the n79 does not. I am curious if the mopping works well and if you can put solutions in the tank other than water. I use Bona solutions on my floors and it is a very gentle/ delicate solution. It does not have a scent and does not leave a sticky residue behind. I currently use a microfiber pad to mop my floors with this solution.
I also noticed that the n79 uses a lithium battery whereas the m80 does not. I read that the lithium battery is supposed to be better and have a longer charge. I have also looked at the reviews and the n79 has higher reviews than the m80, Thank you!

They have a few other differences. The Ecovacs Deebot N79 has half the bin size of the Ecovacs Deebot M80 ( N79's 250mL Vs. the m80’s 500mL), and the Ecovacs Deebot N79 is also not capable of using Alexa, while the m80 is Alexa enabled.

As for the mopping feature, it works decently, but you’re not going to get the same sort of cleaning quality as a traditional handheld mop. To answer your question about the cleaning solution, you can indeed add a mixture of cleaning solution to the water, especially If the solution you use leaves no residue behind.

When it comes to the lithium batteries, it can be better in certain situations, particularly in constant changing temperatures, making it the perfect battery for outdoor use. One of the special attributes a lithium battery has is its ability to withstand extreme temperatures. If you’re house is really cold, it will make a huge difference. Lithium batteries also last longer than typical alkaline (which typically bumps the price up on the item if it contains lithium, as opposed to alkaline).

All in all, I would go with the M80 if you want voice command capability, and a larger bin. The larger bin size is useful if you have a large area that you want the vacuum to clean, or if you want to use it very frequently - you won't have to manually empty the bin as often. The N79 would be a good choice if you want to spend less, and want a robot with a battery that can last a bit longer, and withstand extreme temperatures. I cannot speak for the reviews, but they both are great options.

How does this vacuum do on carpet and stone flooring?
Related: Ecovacs Deebot N79, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 165 days ago

It can clean all type of flooring, but it seems to run into some issues when transitioning from hard floors, to high-pile carpet. It will not vacuum rugs efficiently, and does not deep clean carpets. The Ecovacs Deebot N79 has above average dirt pick-up, but it seems to be a bit inconsistent according to most sources.

We have large area rugs in 3 rooms on top of laminate floors and have problems with the black in our rugs, The roomba will not work on the black in our home. The black causes errors to occur. Will this happen with the powerbot?

Will it clean shag .
Related: ILife V3s, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 10 days ago

Overall, a robotic vacuum is not the best choice for shag carpeting. Most will struggle on shag, or even high pile carpets. An iRobot Roomba 980 would work better on thick carpeting than an ILife V3s (although it'll likely still get stuck sometimes). The Neato Botvac D80 would be a great choice if you were strictly talking about medium to high pile carpet, but true shag carpet would get tangled in vacuum robots brushes, much like it would on a regular vacuum that uses spinning brushes.

Does it get caught u on wires or other stufff
Related: Samsung Powerbot, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 15 days ago

The Samsung Powerbot is designed to handle the issues wires may cause. It has really large wheels that help it a great deal when handling wires, excellent navigation, and coverage. That being said, it’s not a perfect thing, and every now, and again it may still get caught in a wire. It's good to make sure and remove any wire that may have a sharp end to it to avoid dragging an object on flooring, such as hardwood.
