150 minutes of working is an impressive amount of time considering the fact that the Xiaomi Roborock’s powerful motor delivers 2000Pa of suction power. Along with a laser located on top, the robot is equipped with the SLAM algorithm that helps to create a map of an interior and then build the most efficient way of cleaning on its own. This technology allows the machine to work in the dark. The mopping mode works about 45-50 minutes on one charge. The Xiaomi Roborock is further equipped with a washable HEPA filter.

The device performs well on carpeted surfaces and bare floors. The tangle-free design prevents hair from wrapping around the main brush and wheels, making the robot perfect for pet and long human hair. It can easily climb obstacles or thresholds up to 20mm. There is also intelligent carpet identification that turns on maximum suction power once the machine recognizes carpeting, so it is perfect for deep cleaning thin and medium-pile carpets/rugs. (So far no robot vacuum cleaner deso thick carpets). The app allows you to track its movements in real-time (where the robot has been) and create virtual walls--as many as possible. When the Xiaomi Roborock's battery is at 20%, it goes to recharge, which juices the battery up to 80%, and returns to finish the job from the point it left off.

Overall, owners are satisfied with the Roborock performance. It does its job well on carpets, catching even the smallest particles, pet hair, dust and dirt, leaving the carpet clean. It also performs great on hardwood, tile, marble, etc. The mapping feature is accurate, which makes the cleaning process even more efficient. Although the Xiaomi Roborock is one of the best robot vacuum cleaners so far, it has its issues connecting to Wi-Fi, and US consumers cannot fully enjoy the app and they don't get any updates. We have searched the Internet and found the solution. Also, the 2nd gen Roborock has limited Amazon Alexa support.
