To be sure that we don’t overpay for high-tech devices I’ve tested two models of the robot vacuums – PureClean PUCRC25 vs ILIFE V3s Pro. Both gadgets are low-priced so I haven’t expected too much from them. However, some of their options were a pleasant surprise for me.
The robots’ features match their price. They are equipped with the protection from falling, can clean spots, and edges, but their use is justified for small lightly polluted spaces. ILIFE V3s has a modern and nice design that fits people who want to see something modern and good-looking in their houses. Besides, its height allows cleaning under the low-clearance beds and sofas. ILIFE V3s has much better battery capacity than PureClean PUCRC25 – 2600 mAH versus 850 mAH. Nevertheless, it takes this model too much time for recharging.
So what robot would be the better assistant – ILIFE V3s Pro or PureClean PUCRC25? ILIFE V3s might come in handy if you pay attention to the practical concerns – low noise, good using area (up to 1600 ft), remote control. On the other hand, it can’t clean carpets, unlike PUCRC25 that is able to consume dust from the low-pile coverings. PureClean suits to the allergics because it makes the air clean from the smallest dust drifting around. Various sensors help it escape obstacles but, sometimes it waste too much time for cleaning the certain area.
It analog remote control enables you using one of its 4 cleaning modes and scheduling the cleaning. It can handle the flat mats, but it’s stuck sometimes. It is good in consuming cheerios and even animal hair though it removes only 30% of sawdust.
This robot is operating for 90 minutes and then it recharges for 4 hours. Before using the gadget it would be better to remove all the obstacles. Take into account that it is not very easy for it to transit form medium-pile covering to the smooth floor. The vac isn’t “smart” and cleans in a random pattern. PUCRC25 has got a nice white-color design that differs the device form most that I’ve ever tested.
