– 2-in-1 Vacuum + Mop
– Next-level Intelligence
– LiDAR Smart Mapping & Navigation
While we know Realme for its cell phones or its connected watches, the Chinese manufacturer is trying to break into the connected household appliances sector with a robot vacuum cleaner. Its TechLife Robot Vaccum competes with the Xiaomi Mi Vacuum MOP P.
With its very first robot vacuum cleaner TechLife, Realme is nipping at Xiaomi’s heels and trying to establish itself as the best value on the market. In order to enter this ultra-competitive market head-on, the Chinese manufacturer has no choice but to bring out the heavy artillery at a very contained price; the TechLife is sold from $399.99.
Realme’s heroic breakthrough comes with a laser rangefinder and a fleet of sensors that allow the device to find its way around its environment, provide good surface coverage and handle obstacles well. At the end of a cleaning cycle, the robot provides a map of its environment allowing the user to observe the trajectory of the device and see the areas that have been reached. The application to which the robot is capable of taking over the management of several floors, creating rooms or areas in the room by installing virtual beacons. These will allow the robot to avoid certain areas or, conversely, serve to clean the areas defined by the said beacons.
Like the vast majority of Chinese robot vacuum cleaners, the TechLife wants to provide the dual function of vacuuming and floor cleaning. That’s why we can add a water tank and a multi-surface wipes holder that will allow it to wash the floor. We note in passing that the washing system integrated into the Realme does not “brush” the floor as such as does, for example, the Roborock S7 with its sonic vibrations. In the absence of a motorized brushing system, the TechLife cannot hope to provide the same performance as a real floor cleaning robot.
Finally, Realme TechLife counts on an “ultimate suction of 3000 Pa” to vacuum all types of floors and an “ultra long lasting battery of 5200 mAh”.
