Questions about Samsung Powerbot

Powerboat only runs about 40 to 45 minutes
Related: Samsung Powerbot, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 71 days ago

Is the Samsung Powerbot being used on max mode most of the time? The amount of time the Powerbot can clean depends on the mode it’s on, and the type of surface it’s cleaning. On max mode it’ll last about 30 minutes, on normal 60 minutes, and on quiet mode it’s capable of lasting up to 90 minutes. If you’re using quiet mode, and running the bot on a smooth surface, then I would consider replacing the battery with the manufacturer.

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?
Related: Samsung Powerbot, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 74 days ago

Unfortunately, this seems to be an issue with many robotic vacuums. It’s a sensor glitch caused by the color because the robot believes that it’s about to go over a cliff. The Samsung Powerbot has been reported to experience the same sensor issues with the color black.

Does it get caught u on wires or other stufff
Related: Samsung Powerbot, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 80 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.

will wires on floor cause a problem with samsung
Related: iRobot Roomba 980, Samsung Powerbot, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by Ken 91 days ago

The Samsung Powerbot is designed to avoid getting tangled up in wires, but it always depends on the degree of wires as well. Are the wires very thick? This could potentially pose a problem because it may drag the wires, but for the most part it should navigate quite solidly. This vacuum has large wheels, which helps it maneuver over wires a bit better than the average vacuum robot.

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.

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.
