Neato is a robotics company which became famous around the world for the use of patented LaserSmart navigation technology. All of their vacuuming robots come with this system, including the Botvac D80.
The LaserSmart mapping is the thing that makes this product stand above competitors. This intelligent technology allows it to scan the room and plan the route, instead of just randomly avoiding the obstacles. The same technology allows this robot vacuum cleaner to stay tangle-free even when cleaning around cables. The device is 3.9 inches thick, so it can go under the furniture, cleaning hardly reachable areas of your home.
Another system that makes the Botvac special is the SpinFlow System. Basically, it combines powerful vacuum suction with brushing. That makes this robot capable to clean even the most stubborn stains on your floors. Its engine is powerful enough to make it able to suck in all the hairs that might be stuck in your carpet.
To start cleaning, all you got to do is to set a cleaning program via the remote control or directly on the device. You can choose from several modes, including the one for multi-room cleaning. Botvac D80 will easily go from one room to another as it was designed to climb over obstacles to up to 15mm, like the door threshold for example.
The device also comes with a bagless dustbin and a superb battery. Speaking of battery, it can supply the robot with enough energy to make it capable of cleaning constantly for up to 90 minutes. Before the battery runs out, the machine will head back to the dock on its own to get recharged. The manufacturer’s warranty on the battery is 6 months. Neato gives a limited warranty on the whole device for a period of one year.
With so many amazing features packed in one relatively small vacuuming robot, some would think that this unit is expensive. However, the opposite is true. Although it is not the cheapest you can find, considering its features, Botvac D80 is pretty affordable.
Botvac D80 is an ambitious project of the NeatoCompany, which tried to revolutionize vacuuming robots technology. It seems they did a very good job as this robot is great when it comes to navigation. It’s also powerful enough to provide great cleaning and even has a fairly good battery life. All in all, buying a D80 seems as a wise decision.
