ECOVACS continues to develop products with high potential in the field of smart home, more precisely in the field of robot vacuum cleaners. After the much appreciated DEEBOT 605 comes its natural evolution, the DEEBOT U2 PRO. Let’s find out in our full review.
Design: goodbye glossy finish, welcome “matte” effect
The design of this new generation of robots is decidedly more elegant, with a matte finish able to return a pleasant visual and tactile feedback. But it’s not just a question of beauty as this finish gets dirty less easily than the glossy one and weighs less on daily maintenance. No fingerprints or dust, just a short time after cleaning is enough to make it shine clean.
The lines are the same as the previous model – and almost all robots on the market – while the logo is renewed, as is the wording of the model. Convenient, as always, the hooking and unhooking of the plastic drawer for suction and washing.
Utility: Does this DEEBOT U2 PRO really work?
As with most robotic vacuum cleaners, the answer is yes, as long as you don’t expect 100% deep cleaning. The big cleaning must always be done by hand but for everyday use, this little robot is really the perfect companion. Most of the dirt is effectively removed, especially if you also choose to wash the floor with the dedicated functionality that the DEEBOT U2 PRO has.
Pet owners will benefit even more from the features of this smart vacuum cleaner, specially designed for vacuuming pet hair and equipped with an anti-tangle brush and an 800ml XL dust pan.
The washing function is very interesting, clearly if you are not faced with stubborn dirt that requires more care and attention. Just fill the 300ml tank, choose the dispensing quantity based on the needs and characteristics of the floor and let the robot work.
Once the robot vacuum cleaner is connected to the smartphone application and, possibly, to your voice assistant such as Alexa or Google Assistant, it will be really easy to start the cleaning operations, program them and make the vacuum cleaner more and more smart.
Systematic cleaning guarantees an excellent level of efficiency and allows you to effectively clean all environments without draining all the available battery. It is also possible to increase its performance by taking advantage of the Max + mode which helps in case of deeper cleaning.
Compared to the previous generation we can see several benefits, starting from the battery that goes from 2600mAh to 3200mAh to get to the doubled suction power. Still, four new features are available:
- Tangle-free brush
- 800ml XL tray
- OZMO washing functionality
- Support for magnetic virtual barriers (to be purchased separately)
The autonomy is about 150 minutes but, from our tests, even the longest cleanings do not completely exhaust it. Using the “eco” mode, consumption decreases further and also helps to save electricity for recharging (ideal for those who schedule cleaning every day).
Obviously, at the end of each cleaning, the DEEBOT U2 PRO will return by itself to its charging base and there will be no need to manually move it between the rooms of the house.
Compatibility: Alexa, Google, iOS and Android
This product can be controlled via Alexa and Google Assistant, as we said before, but the maximum is provided by the official ECOVACS app on iOS and Android. From the app it is possible to customize each setting, program cleaning in the best possible way, check the state of wear of accessories, filter and brushes and set the various cleaning modes as needed.
Nothing really is missing, everything works flawlessly and offers the user two ways of control: a deeper and more detailed one with the app and a faster and easier one with the virtual assistant.
At this price it’s a smart vacuum cleaner that’s impossible to ignore
The list price of this smart vacuum cleaner is € 269.98, really excellent considering what is supplied in the package and considering the technical specifications of the robot. At the time of writing this review is on Amazon offer at € 229.48 with a saving of € 40.50. Really recommended and not to be missed.
It could be better? Yes, there are better performing robots with many more features both at ECOVACS and at other manufacturers in the sector but at this price it is practically impossible to miss it.
Compact and efficient, this ECOVACS U2 PRO is truly a revolution compared to its predecessor. It is a silent, efficient, precise smart vacuum cleaner and offers a series of very useful technologies for those who also want to wash the floors and for those who have pet hair scattered around the house. And finally, it’s iPhone’s best friend with a perfect app full of options for customization.
