Spending your entire energy on cleaning every nook and cranny is no more cool stuff to do. And looking at your struggle, there is one thing how you can fix the issue. And that solution is the iLife V3s Pro Robotic Vacuum Cleaner. This is not only an energy saving product but also something that needs to be highlighted. And with this iLife V3s Pro Review, you will get to know all the wonders that it does with its smartness.
We have also reviewed the updated version from the same brand, iLife. You can check out the article about iLife V5s Pro Robot Vacuum to compare with this vacuum.
Features of Our iLife V3s Pro Review
Its sleek white look would be the first thing that will impress you. If you are someone who wants something simple but modern, this can be your pick. The chassis of iLife V3s Pro with gray and black trim can be perfect for any home.
Coming in 3 inches high and almost 12 inches diameter, V3s pro seems one of the smallest robot vacuums you can get for yourself. Not only that, but it is also able to fit beneath dresses, sofas and bed frames easily.
Now you will be able to focus on picking up dirt, debris as well as hairs with its pet hair care technology. The best part is its front obstacle sensors with plastic bumper through which it does all the job by feeling its environment around.
The iLife V3s Robotic Vacuum Cleaner also features a sensor that keeps it from falling down the stairs. You can call it a cliff sensor.
The V3s pro does not need any traditional brush to collect all the dirt. It rather cleans all the stuff by shoving into a small mouth with its two spinning brushes on both sides.
The only thing that might frustrate you is that its dustbin. It sits under a pop-up flap inside the device. You might hate pulling the dustbin out by the handle, remove the lid and then the filter just to empty the dustbin.
And if it is somehow filled to the brim, then all the debris or hair will kind of spillover which is the worst part of the unit.
Not at all a user-friendly product. Even though it comes with a handle but the brand did not seem to try to make it convenient. The iLife V3s Pro is not a connected bot. You are required to count on an analog remote control for operating the unit.
However, the remote has all the basic functionalities which include, 4 modes of cleaning and a button for scheduled cleaning.
You will need 2 AAA batteries for powering the remote. However, the great thing is that it will run for about 120 minutes until you recharge it.
And among all the negativity, there is another thing that comes as positive which is its Auto mode. So even if you are not around, you can keep the device in auto so it can clean all the stuff without your command.
As for the performance of the unit, well it is quite impressive. If you keep it in Auto mode, it will start to clean from the middle of the room and will continue to do until it doesn’t run out of battery power.
It tends to dock itself when it almost gets out of power. But a little drawback is that it sometimes gets lost and might have a hard time locating the base.
There is an Edge mode in the remote that you can use to clean the edges which is the perimeter of your home. However, since the mouth or hole of the device is not that much wide, so it might not be as effective in collecting the stuff as you can expect.
Another annoying part is that iLife V3s Pro Robotic Vacuum does not always make noise when it gets stuck. But it will turn itself off automatically which is pretty a great trait.
However, it can navigate quite well when it runs around the house on hardwood especially. However, you will also need to ensure to take off the Velcro overlay at the bottom of V3s or else it might get stick to the rug.
There are pros and cons for using a robot vacuum, but you have to sure about which robot vacuum you need according to the flooring system.
