TP-Link has introduced the best floor robot vacuum cleaner that is supposed to impress with a wide range of functions. Because the new TP-Link Tapo RV10 can vacuum and wipe floors and clean carpets as well as be controlled by voice control with Alexa and Google Assistant.
With the Tapo RV10 Lite, TP-Link has presented a comparatively inexpensive vacuum and floor-mopping robot that has a particularly large collection container for up to 800 ml of dust, which means that, according to the manufacturer, the robot only has to be emptied every two weeks.
The more expensive Tapo RV10 only offers space for 300 ml of dust, but the robot is equipped with a water tank and a mopping pad so that floors can not only be vacuumed but also wiped. The more expensive RV10 Plus also comes with an extraction station, so that the dust is collected in a 4-liter bag. To match the aggressive price point, the TP-Link Tapo vacuum RV10 series eschews LiDAR scanners, cameras, or map-making.
Thanks to an integrated gyroscope, the robots are supposed to drive through the home systematically in lanes instead of just driving in random directions like older robots. After all, the robot offers voice control via Alexa and Google Assistant, a quiet mode in which the noise level should not exceed 53 dB, and an associated smartphone app with which the robot can be easily set up. The battery lasts three hours, which should also be sufficient for larger homes.
