Ecovacs t10+: Incredible Autonomy and Great Performance
The Ecovacs t10+ is a high-end robot vacuum and mop that provides all of the great features you'd expect from one of the best robot vacuums that money can buy. With a docking station that can go as long as two months without being emptied, the ability to automatically sense carpet and respond appropriately, and a navigation system that can double as home security, Ecovacs t10+ has an awful lot to offer.
Here's what you need to know about this vacuum to help you decide if it's right for you.
- Automatically senses carpet so it can avoid it when it's mopping and boost power when it's vacuuming.
- Large dustbin can enable you to not empty the docking station for as long as two months.
- One of the very few vacuums you’ll find that's equipped with an air freshener.
- Works as a home security system, allowing you to see what the vacuum sees.
- Mop pad needs to be changed often.
- Brushes have a tendency to get hair tangled up in them.
The Ecovacs t10+ features some of the most advanced navigation in the industry, with advanced artificial intelligence based obstacle avoidance and true mapping 2.0. The upgraded obstacle avoidance features visual interpretation technology that allows this vacuum to not only see but recognize the obstacles it encounters.
It will map out not only large obstacles like walls and furniture, but also little obstacles like books, shoes, and cords. The Starlight camera can actively avoid objects on the floor depending on what they are, which means you won't have to clean up debris in your home before the vacuum runs.
This feature can make the Ecovacs t10+ a much more practical tool, especially when you consider the docking station. This vacuum can be scheduled and run all on its own, without you having to prepare the house for it each time. Since it automatically empties itself, you can truly forget about it for weeks at a time.
You can feel good about the on-board camera since the Ecovacs t10+ has obtained both hardware and software TÜV Rheinland privacy and security certification. You will also be notified when the camera is on.
This robot has a long battery life, up to 180 minutes, but if it runs out of juice in the midst of a clean, it will automatically go back to the docking station and charge itself before picking up where it left off.
The app gives you lots of control over the Ecovacs t10+, as you'd expect from a high-end robot vacuum. However, this app gives you something that you can't usually expect from the average robot vacuum.
This robot actually allows you to use the camera to check in on your home while you're gone. It lets you see whatever the robots sees in real time, even when the light is low.
The app also allows you to fully customize every aspect of cleaning. You can label rooms, tell the robot to clean particular areas, set up boundaries, etc. You can even use the 3D map to add furniture and tell the robot to clean around it.
You can control the Ecovacs t10+ with Alexa or Google Assistant, allowing you to use your voice to tell it to start or stop a run, clean specific areas, etc.
3000 PA is enough suction power to pick up all of the dust and debris in an average home. Dual side brushes are very effective at shooting debris away from walls and out of corners and into the mouth of the vacuum. The Ecovacs t10+ can automatically sense when it approaches carpet. It will boost the power from whatever setting it's on so that it can get deep into carpet fibers.
A 3-layer filtration system does a stupendous job of getting rid of even microscopic dust and allergens, as much as 99% of them, in fact. Since the filter can capture particles as small as 6 microns, even the tiniest allergens can be removed during vacuuming.
You'll find that your home smells great after the Ecovacs t10+ has vacuumed, thanks to the onboard air freshener. As it vacuums it will continuously release a pleasant scent, leaving your home smelling clean and fresh.
Ecovacs t10+ features the OZMO™ Pro 3.0 oscillating mopping system, which is designed to clean deeply on hard surfaces. It can dig into the grout between tiles or the spaces between laminated wood floors to get every bit of dirt out.
This robot will automatically avoid carpet while it's mopping, so you won't have to worry about it getting carpet or rugs damp. You can set it about its mopping and not worry about setting up boundaries around your carpets. Choose between washable and disposable mopping pads.
Keep in mind that you won't be able to use this robot to mop with as much autonomy as you use it to vacuum. Mop pads will need to be changed each time the vacuum mops. While this robot can function by itself to vacuum, empty, and deploy itself again on schedule, it will need your assistance each time to mop.
The Ecovacs t10+ isn't one of the loudest robot vacuums out there, but at 3000Pa, you can expect it to make some noise when it's in full suction mode. You'll probably be able to get your home clean enough without using the highest suction, but keep in mind that when this vacuum moves onto carpet, it automatically boosts suction, which may also cause it to increase its noise level.
Empty the Dustbin
The Ecovacs t10+ will empty the dustbin automatically whenever it needs it, so all you have to do is worry about emptying the docking station periodically. Dust and debris is sealed into a hypoallergenic dust bag so you won't have to worry about particles of dust getting out into the air when you change the bag.
How often you'll need to empty it depends on how dirty and large your home is and how often you run the vacuum. However, many people find that they can go as long as 60 days without emptying the dustbin.
Clean the Brushes
This vacuum is equipped with three brushes, two on either side and one at the mouth. All three will need to be regularly cleaned, particularly when it comes to hair. The side brushes, in particular, have a tendency to get hair wrapped around them, which can obstruct their functioning and even cause them to break over time.
It's a good idea to clean all three brushes every time you empty the docking station. You may want to check the brushes a little bit more often at the beginning as you get a sense of how quickly they'll get dirty.
Clean the Filter
The filter on the Ecovacs t10+ is washable, so you can wash it off in cool water periodically. Most of the time, the filter will need to be cleaned as often as the docking station needs to be emptied. However, if you’re very sensitive to allergens, it may not be a bad idea to clean it more often so that it will most effectively filter out even the smallest debris.
Wipe Down the Body of the Vacuum
The powerful side brushes have a tendency to shoot dust up onto the body of the vacuum, and it may also get dusty when it empties into the docking station. Therefore, it's important to wipe down the body of the vacuum as dirt shows easily on the white, glossy surface.
Ecovacs t10+ isn't cheap, but it features some of the most valuable characteristics you would expect from a high-end robot vacuum. The ability to go as long as two months without emptying the docking station is a huge advantage. It's pretty cool that you can use it as a home security system and air freshener as well. If you're looking for a high-end vacuum with all the bells and whistles, this may be the one for you.
