Roborock S8 MaxV Ultra: The Ultimate Robovac Partner | West Observer

March 30, 2024 | by

Roborock has unveiled their latest flagship model, the S8 MaxV Ultra, which offers a range of new features and improvements. The hardware includes 10,000 pa of suction power, a significant increase from their previous flagship model, as well as upgraded mopping effectiveness with a vibrating mop that rotates to clean edges and corners. The addition of a FlexiArm also allows the side brush to reach corners and sideboards more easily, making for a more thorough cleaning experience.

In terms of software, Roborock has incorporated AI into the algorithm for improved navigation and obstacle avoidance. The bot features a new voice assistant named “Rocky,” although some users may find it easier to set up routines through the app. While the mapping function of the app may have some limitations in terms of dividing rooms, overall the S8 MaxV Ultra offers efficient and thorough cleaning capabilities, with reduced noise levels and a dual roller system that prevents clogs from hair and debris.

The S8 MaxV Ultra also introduces a revamped docking station, with customizable options for water tanks and the ability to refill the bot with detergent. The hot water cleaning and heated drying options provide a deep clean for floors, reducing the need for frequent refills of water tanks. The bot is smart enough to rewash the mop and clean the bottom tray, leading to easier maintenance and a more convenient overall experience for users.

Despite some hiccups in navigation and mapping, the Roborock S8 MaxV Ultra offers a powerful cleaning performance with minimal post-run maintenance required. The addition of a Pet mode for pet owners ensures a more cautious approach to obstacle avoidance, reducing the risk of unexpected accidents or messes. The bot is also equipped with a range of filters to keep an eye on and alerts users when maintenance is required, making it easier to keep the bot running smoothly.

The Roborock S8 MaxV Ultra is set to launch on April 22nd for $1,799, with a range of accessories and a 5-year warranty available during the launch event. Customers can also trade in their old models for cash back, with up to $900 available for trading in an S8 Pro Ultra. The bot will be available on the Roborock website and may also be found on Amazon once it launches, making it a top choice for those in search of a high-performance robovac for their home cleaning needs.
