The Roborock Q5 Plus is a low-maintenance robot vacuum that requires routine cleaning and filter/brush replacement, with an auto-empty feature and minimal maintenance for the charging dock.
The Roborock Q5 Plus requires routine maintenance such as cleaning and replacing the filter and brushes, which are easy to do according to WIRED. The filter can last up to three to six months depending on usage, and the brushes are attached with screws to prevent them from popping off during cleaning runs.
The dustbin needs to be emptied every seven weeks, and the Q5+ has an auto-empty feature that stores all accumulated dust in a 2.5-liter large dock. The charging dock requires minimal maintenance, and the user needs to keep an eye on the 2.5-liter dustbag and change it out when it fills up. The product description does not provide information on accessing and replacing the batteries.
