Autonomous vacuums are the type of convenience we believe every homeowner needs because to put it lightly – cleaning sucks! Even if it is your mess. Now, imagine a world where your robovac could vacuum, mop the floor, and then dock, clean and refill itself and be ready for the next round? No, this is not science fiction, this dream is now a reality thanks to the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra, a name so long and so ridiculous it can only be true.
We reviewed the original S7 automatic vacuum and Self-emptying dock at the end of 2021 and came away very impressed with what Roborock was doing in this space and now they have taken it to ‘max ultra’ levels by combining these two products into a truly autonomous hands-off cleaning experience and we love it. For the unaccustomed, the team at Roborock specializes in the research, development, and production of robotic home cleaners and other cleaning appliances. It develops and produces robot vacuums under its Roborock brand, as well as creating robot vacuums for one of China’s largest technology companies, Xiaomi. Each robot it builds is designed to fulfill a singular purpose: To give people more time to spend on the things they love.
Announced at CES 2022, the S7 MaxV Ultra is a brilliant combination of Roborock’s S7 MaxV automatic vacuum which improves on the original S7 by adding more suction power (5100pa) and what they call “ReactiveAI 2.0 Obstacle Avoidance System” or put simply, it recognizes objects using its Lidar sensor, structured light 3D scanning, and RGB camera and won’t run over them, a common cause of robot vacuum distress. It also includes their sonic-powered floor cleaner to help mop up those high traffic floors with ease and don’t worry the mop lifts 5mm when it detects carpet, so there’s no need to keep removing and replacing the mop pad based on which rooms you want to clean. In case you are wondering where the ‘Ultra’ title comes from, it refers to their newly upgraded docking system that will empty, wash, and refill your vacuum when it is done.
With an eye-watering $1399 price tag for the combo, the Ultra dock is one of the greatest things to come out of CES this past year and turns this experience into so much more than the original self-emptying dock. Not only does it automatically empty the dust receptacle on the S7 MaxV upon its return, like its predecessor, but it also refills the approved cleaning solution in the mopping tank and even cleans the mop head and collects the dirty water for disposal in a separate tank. It works brilliantly! One thing we were pleasantly surprised with was how quiet it was during the emptying process, kin to brewing a Nespresso coffee, but buyers should note, it is a little hefty and has a larger footprint than the original but that is the price you pay for such convenience. A few last things to note is that you do have to replace the dust bag occasionally, empty the wastewater tank periodically and refill the water tank on occasion to keep this thing running optimally.
The magic sprinkles on top of this awesome package are some Roborock exclusives such as the ability to customize cleaning in rooms as well as keep-out zones and set schedules using the intuitive Roborock app. Plus, the power to control the robot remotely and watch a live stream of your home through the robot’s camera is just plain fun. Don’t get us started on the two-way talk feature which you can use to terrorize pets or terrify family members, the S7 MaxV truly does it all.
Put plainly, there simply is no better truly autonomous cleaning and docking solution for modern homes on the market today that compares to Roborock’s S7 MaxV Ultra, it takes care of all the unnecessary mess life has to offer and does so without the hassle of having to do it yourself. So, relax, enjoy some more ‘me’ time and let someone else do the cleaning.
