Bottom Line

The ILIFE V7S Pro is not perfect, but it does its job well on thin carpets and bare floors. Thanks to the water tank, you do not need to keep the mopping cloth damp manually, but you probably should soak a mop before starting the mop mode.

Overall, it is a reasonable budget 2-in-1 robot vacuum for a bare floor.

The iRobot Braava 380t

The Braava 380T is something different from other devices we've seen from iRobot. This robot is the best model in their floor mopping series built for hardwood floors. Let's see what iRobot proposes for the under $300 price in this short review.

  • Multi Pass Technology allows the robot to clean even the toughest stains
  • It is quiet compared to other Roomba robots
  • Recharging time: 2 h
  • Weight just 4 lbs (1.8kg)


  • The Braava 380t can't get to its charging station automatically. You need to do it manually right after the robot finishes its job.
  • It comes with the NorthStar Navigation Cube that helps the robot find its way around. For more than one room you have to buy one more NorthStar.

Items coming with the Braava 380T in the box

  • NorthStar Navigation Cube with 2 C batteries
  • Microfiber mopping cloth
  • Microfiber damp mopping cloth
  • Turbo Charge Cradle
  • Pro-Clean Reservoir Pad
  • Multi-Purpose Cleaning Pad

The iRobot has three buttons: one for dry mopping, one for wet mopping, and one to turn the thing on and off. It takes a while before the mop cloth gets wet, so you should start with a wet mop in wet mop mode.

Rollibot BL618 Review

The BL618 is a quiet robot vacuum cleaner designed for vacuuming, sweeping and UV sterilizing. The Rollibot BL618 uses an ultraviolet lamp that sterilizes your floor from bacteria and germs. The robot does not have a roller head, so it can suck all the threads on its way. It comes with rubberized covers to help protect your wood flooring or other surfaces.

BL618 comes with double Hepa filtration and has long running time


  • UV germicidal lamp sterilizes your floor from the likes of e.Coli and other germs or bacteria
  • Rubberized covers on the underside help protect wood flooring or other surfaces
  • HEPA filtration
  • Low sounds operation
  • Scheduling


  • It has some problems with carpeted floors, so better to use it on a bare floor
  • Without a rolling cleaner underneath, there’s only a narrow vent sucking in the dust. If a hairball misses that, it will come out the other side.
  • It is not that quiet as the ILIFE and makes an annoying sound when bumping against something
