iRobot's Roomba Combo vacuum-and-mops are as much as $300 off proper now

The iRobot Roomba Combo j7+ is the highest 2-in-1 decide in our information to the best robot vacuums, because it provides a retractable mop for cleansing onerous flooring onto a strong robovac for carpets and different surfaces. It is costly at its common record worth of $1,000, however proper now you will get it for $699 at Wellbots. Simply use the code ENGROOMBA300 at checkout. Whereas that is nonetheless removed from low cost, it does mark the most important low cost we have tracked.

The Roomba Combo j7+ is undoubtedly a luxurious buy, however we discovered its vacuuming and mopping capabilities to principally work as marketed. As a robotic vacuum, it provides sturdy suction energy, correct house mapping and clever impediment avoidance, together with a robust knack for avoiding pet waste. In its “vacuum and mop” mode, it is sensible sufficient to know when it is rolling over onerous flooring as an alternative of carpet, then solely mop the previous. The battery typically lasts between 90 to 180 minutes relying on how usually you mop, and the entire thing works with Alexa and the Google Assistant. This mannequin additionally comes with a (noisy) self-emptying base station, which the vacuum mechanically retreats to when it is finished cleansing.

It isn’t excellent: You will need to refill the water tank pretty usually, there isn’t any mop-only mode and the mopping performance is not as environment friendly as simply utilizing a Swiffer. iRobot’s Residence app stays simple to make use of, however all robovacs require the occasional upkeep and intervention. Nonetheless, a tool like this makes cleansing extra hands-off than it might be in any other case, so the Combo j7+ could possibly be value it if your private home has a mixture of carpet, hardwood, laminate and different surfaces.

These are $300 and $250 reductions, respectively, and each symbolize all-time lows. The Combo j5+ is a newer midrange alternative to the Combo j7+: It has many of the similar options, however it lacks the j7+’s retractable mop arm and talent to mechanically keep away from carpets whereas mopping. As an alternative, you must swap in a vacuum-only bin (or simply transfer your rugs) while you wish to clear a carpeted room. You additionally need to empty its vacuum/mop combo bin manually. The usual j5 is actually the identical gadget however would not include a self-emptying base station.
