how to get the n79 unit to go back to the base unit
Related: Ecovacs Deebot M80, Ecovacs Deebot N79, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 61 days ago

You shouldn't need to do anything to have the n79 model go back to the base unit. When its battery power gets low, Ecovacs Deebot N79 automatically returns to its charging dock, all by itself. Not only does it have auto return, but will continue cleaning on its own once it’s fully recharged.

Should I buy the Ecovacs N79
Related: Ecovacs Deebot N79, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 83 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 93 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.

Which one to buy that's good. And is affordable. I have carpet , wood floor , vilnyl and ceramic
Related: Eufy RoboVac 11, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by Karen 52 days ago

It depends on what you consider to be affordable. If the Eufy RoboVac 11 is in your price range, it is definitely worth checking out. It's compact, runs quietly, and features a powerful battery that will run up to 1.5 hours. This vacuum has a triple layer filter which is good for filtering dust and allergens as well. Assuming you have thin carpet (no shag or high pile) then this would work perfectly for you. The one downside is that it has no virtual wall capability, meaning that it can't be restricted from going into certain areas (e.g. a baby's room) although it can detect stairs and other drops so it won't break.

The best option for pet hair. I have 3 cats.
Related: bObsweep PetHair, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by Chris 57 days ago

I would say two great choices to combat pet hair would be either the bObsweep PetHair, or the Irobot Roomba 960. They both have HEPA filters and large bins to hold a lot of pet hair and dirt (so they won't have to be empties as frequently). 

The bObsweep PetHair would be the cheaper choice, but do not let that discourage you from trying it out. It was designed to combat pet hair. It however may pose an issue if you have a two floor house because it has no stair detection (meaning that it will drop if there is no barrier at the top of the stairs). Its bin is also slightly larger than the 960’s (1000 mL vs. the 960’s 900 mL). It’s not only designed to handle pet hair, but also paw prints, as it is a combination of a vacuum and a mop.

The Irobot Roomba 960 on the other hand is able to handle fringes and cables quite well with its tangle free extractors, and has stair detection, making it an optimal choice if you have a multi story house. It also gives you the ability to control where it can or cannot go with the virtual wall (these may cost extra, however).

What is a better vacuum? Irobot 960 or Samsung powerboat r7010?
Related: Irobot Roomba 960, Samsung Powerbot R7010, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 59 days ago

It ultimately depends on what you're going for. The Irobot Roomba 960 is a good choice if you what something with a very large bin, and is tough no thick carpet. This would be an optimal choice for pet owners. This bot is more expensive, but has great versatility, has remote control capabilities, and is features tangle-free extractors to combat those pet hairs that want to clog the vacuum. 

The Samsung Powerbot R7010 is a good choice if you want something more affordable, with decent results. It features four cleaning modes: auto cycle, spot cycle, max cycle, and manual. It has a bin that holds up to 300 mL( about 600 mL less than what the 960 has - it will need to be emptied more frequently), and does not feature a remote control. This would be a wonderful choice if you want a bot that cleans edges efficiently, and can map and navigate the area with ease.

whats a good robovac that will mop tile floor?
Related: iRobot Roomba 980, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by Chris 59 days ago

There are a few decent choices for mopping tile floor, so it ultimately depends on what sort of features you're looking to get with the mop. The iRobot Roomba 980 is more suited to carpet. The ILife V5s or the iRobot Braava 380t would be great choices to consider for mopping.

The ILife V5s features a water tank for damp mopping hardwood floors. It has the ability to return to its charging station upon job completion or when the battery runs low. It also comes with a remote control. The 4 cleaning modes are: auto clean, spot clean, wet clean, and edge clean. This is a great choice if you want a low cost robot mop, that works effectively. A downside to this is its small bin size of only 203 mL (while the 380T model has 539 mL bin).

In the case of the iRobot Braava 380t, this is a great choice if you want a robot mop that has a great battery life. It can work up to 3.5 hours of sweeping and 2.5 hours of mopping. It also has a great navigational system thanks to its northstar navigation system. It features 3 modes: dry sweeping, damp sweeping, and wet mopping. A downside is that unlike the ilife model, this robot does not have an auto return feature (meaning that you'll have to find it yourself and return it to the charging station when the battery dies), nor does it have remote control capability.

So, it boils down to what you prefer, a longer battery life at a higher cost, or a few auto return features at a lower cost. Bear in mind that while both the ILife V5s and iRobot Braava 380t have mopping features, like all robotic vacuums, they are intended for superficial cleaning only and will not be able to tackle deep stains or big messes very effectively.

I have a n Ilife A4 robot cleaner and when on the charge the amber light blinks but it does not charge. Any ideas?
Related: ILife A4, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 62 days ago

Is this a brand new product for you, or have you been using it, and this suddenly began to take place? There is an initial battery activation for ilife process when you first use it. You have to charge the robot for three minutes, take it off the charger, then charge for three minutes again, and then take off the charger for several seconds. Repeat above actions three times. Once you do all that you must charge the robot for 12 hours straight. If you’ve already done this you should contact the manufacturer. For instructions on the steps above you can visit the web address below.
