The ILIFE V8S is one of the latest robots from the ILIFE family. It is a 2-in-1 machine that can mop and sweep. It also has an anti-tangle design, so you do not have to unwrap hair from its main brush which is annoying. The unit works well on thin carpets, catching pet hair, dust, and dirt. Along with that, the V8S performs amazingly on bare floors.
The robot has 6 different cleaning modes. Using its remote control, you can switch between them, schedule the robo, and manually manage its movements. A large 750ml dustbin holds enough dirt, so you do not have to empty it after every cleaning unless you have many pets that shed a lot.
The suction inlet is good and not that good at the same time. The robot does not have a cleaning brush, so you do not need to untangle it from long human hair and pet hair. But because of that, the robot is not fully able to deep clean carpeted flooring. Mainly, a bristle brush scratches a carpet, catching the smallest particles, which is impossible with the suction inlet.
However, the iLIFE V8S works great on a hardwood floor, laminate, linoleum, marble, tile, etc.
