iRobot Braava Jet M6: A Smart Mopping Robot with Versatile Programming Functions

iRobot Braava Jet M6

The iRobot Braava Jet M6 is a wet cleaning mopping robot. It has a well-designed, customizable helper that can be programmed via a mobile app. It’s equipped with several pads for performing different types of cleaning, and has quite a big coverage area. At the same time, the functionality of this robot is limited to mopping, while many vacuum robots, at the same price range, offer some mopping options as well. Get to know if it’s worth buying the Jet M6 model-read the detailed iRobot Braava Jet M6 review.

The auto mop is 10 inches wide, 10.6 inches long, and 3.5 inches tall. Its front bumper is slightly movable and can be recessed for ½ inches. The dock station is slightly bigger, measuring 10.5 x 11.5 x 7 inches. The Jet M6 robot mop is quite lightweight, weighing just 4.85 lbs.


The sensors built into the iRobot Braava Jet M6 robot mop let it scan the area and map it for future cleaning sessions. The soft bumper technology lets the robot get the least damage when it collides with furniture or a wall. The mobile app lets you also map the zones for the robot. There are two types of supported zones: those where the robot should clean and those where it should not clean. The total area that the robot can memorize and calculate is 1,000 square meters.

The iRobot Braava Jet M6 wet mopping pads include single-use and washable ones. There are also single-use pads for dry cleaning (floor polishing). Each pad has a code that’s scanned by the robot mop, letting it automatically switch to the appropriate mode.

Unlike automated vacuum cleaners, the Jet M6 sprays the cleaning solution in front of itself and then mops the floor. It can run once or twice (forward and backward) on a single spray depending on the cleaning mode chosen (quick, long-lasting, or thorough cleaning). The choice of modes, however, is available only when the wet cleaning is selected.

The maximum working time per one cleaning session for the Braava Jet M6 is about 90 minutes. However, usually, the robot needs to get back to the charging station earlier; it takes about 45 minutes of thorough cleaning to deplete the charge. The iRobot Braava Jet M6 battery has a 1,775 mAh capacity and can be recharged in about 2-3 hours.


The Braava Jet M6 has a square shape with rounded corners. This lets it clean thoroughly along walls and other straight objects. There’s a sensor set on the front, scanning the area and letting the robot avoid hitting objects. There’s also a spray opening that sprays the cleaning solution in front of the robot. The mopping pads on the iRobot Braava Jet M6 are attached from the bottom and include the fine microfiber for dry cleaning and the harder one for damp and wet cleaning. The cleaning fluid is poured into the robot’s tank from the top, after opening the small central lid.

The Jet M6 has three buttons on the top, but all control adjustments are more convenient to make via the mobile app. The robot also supports voice commands via Alexa and Vera systems.


The Braava Jet M6 model by iRobot is an efficient mopping robot with several modes, programming, and smart options. It can work on a considerable area and deals with various stains easily (including the dried ones). The robot also dry cleans and polishes the floors, and it automatically selects the program, considering the installed pad. Its battery isn’t large, so if a thorough cleaning is needed, it will spend more time at a dock station than on the floor. It has low clearance and won’t trespass even the lowest thresholds or carpets. However, the multiple options for remote control, including voice commands, make it a serious competitor to other robot mops in this price range.
