If you hate cleaning, don’t have the time to clean your home as often as you would like to, or don’t have money or space for a live-in helper, I would suggest you look at investing in the new Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra. Not only is it an absolutely beautiful cleaning device, it’s far smarter than its predecessor, and does a fine job of keeping your home vacuumed and mopped every single day without any complaints or drama.

If you are new to robot vacuums, here’s what I have learned. It is better to spend more and buy a better model from a reputed brand, than something budget friendly that is going to end up getting stuck around your chair, or fall down and lay there spinning its wheels like an upturned tortoise until you rescue it.

So why the S7 MaxV Ultra you ask? Here are a few reasons:

The S7 Max Ultra, like the G10 that my editor previously tried and tested, comes with its own Ultra Dock. This is where your robot cleaner will be able to charge itself after every clean, to ensure that its battery is always full and ready to go, as well as the following actions:

Auto Refilling

The Ultra Dock automatically refills your robot’s water tank during clean-up, extending the mopping range up to 300 sqm.

Auto Cleaning

The dock will also clean the mop piece using an active brush that rotates and removes any debris. It will also clean the dock base and siphon up the dirty water from the wash, directly into the dirty water tank. You literally do not need to lift a finger in the whole process, except to empty the dirty water canister and refill the fresh water canister every other week or month, depending upon your cleaning schedule.

Auto Emptying

The auto-dustbin is able to empty the dust compartment from the S7 MaxV into the dust bag. This allows up to seven weeks of dust cleaning without having to change the bag. The dust bag (it’s actually a bin) is also washable, and super easy to keep clean.

The above features just focussed on the dock. Let us now look at the The Roborock S7 MaxV features, and if it is suitable for you.

Super Intelligent With Preci-Sense LiDar Navigation For Obstacle Avoidance

Your new Roborock S7 MaxV is as smart as it is beautiful. Its ReactiveAI 2.0 uses a 3D structured light obstacle avoidance system, and a Neural Processing Unit. And if you were to compare it to its predecessor, the S6 MaxV, its ReactiveAI 2.0 is far superior at obstacle identification and avoidance.

It also comes equipped with an LED fill light, which will automatically turn on in low light areas, which means that it can clean your space even in pitch dark, so if you like to have your house cleaned while you sleep like I do, now you can!

Its Structured Light 3D sensor, combined with Roborock’s PreciSense LiDAR navigation system (PreciSense LiDAR), means that your device is able to navigate your space fast, accurately and efficiently every time, day or night.

Vibrarise Sonic Vibration Mopping

If you were to compare the mopping feature on other robot vacuums, you will find that they often don’t do the job precisely, as this feature is simply an add on. But I can confidently tell you that you are going to love how well your S7 MaxV mops your rooms. Using Sonic vibration technology (vibrating at up to 3000 times per minute), the S7 MaxV Ultra mimics the action of scrubbing to clean deeply and effectively. 

The S7 MaxV also comes with auto mop lifting technology. This means that when it senses a carpet, the mop portion will automatically lift for vacuuming only, without stopping the clean-up, and leaving your carpet damp. This means that you can literally use it to mop hard floors and vacuum carpets in a single clean, without worrying the carpets will get wet. 

Real-Time Video Call

The S7 MaxV Ultra has upgraded its remote viewing capabilities, so now you can do more than just talk to the people in your home, you can even stalk and talk to your fur kids while you’re away, and check out different rooms in your home using the vacuum. This is like the best thing ever, and has made leaving my cat alone at home so much less traumatic for us both.  

Dual Camera Power

I love the fact that the S7 MaxV Ultra has dual cameras (like a smartphone) which allows it to see and bypass objects even as small as 5cm wide, and 3cm tall. Its recognition accuracy means that it can understand that it should avoid items that are always on the floor such as cables, slippers, pet toys etc, but know that other non recognisable objects need to be cleared.

More Suction More Power

We were impressed by the 2500pa suction power of the G10 that we reviewed last year, but the suction power has been cranked up to 5100 Pa on the S7 MaxV Ultra making it a cleaning demon on wheels. Just fire up the Max+ mode, and boost its suction ability when more cleaning effort is required.

If you don’t want the hassle of having to spend an hour or three cleaning your home daily, or weekly, then the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is for you! The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is available at Roborock’s official store on Shopee and Lazada!
