Viomi V3 Max Robot Vacuum: everything you need at a very attractive price


Back in the day when the first robot vacuum cleaner hit the market, it was amazing. The idea that a robot could vacuum your home for you while your feet are up on the table sounded like a dream come true, but the problem was that the tech was a bit meh back then, not to mention it was incredibly expensive and largely untested.

Fast forward to today and you’ve got your pick of robot vacuum cleaners to choose from, many of which are equipped with various new technologies that make them more efficient and smarter when it comes to avoiding obstacles and mapping out your home, and the best part is that prices have gotten a lot better where you don’t need to sell off a kidney to own one.

In fact, if you’re in the market for a new robot vacuum cleaner, perhaps Viomi’s V3 Max Robot Vacuum could be of interest to you, especially with its early bird special pricing where instead of paying $499.99, you only have to pay $359.99. Sounds good, doesn’t it? So here’s what you can look forward to for that price.


  • Suction: 2700 Pa
  • Battery Capacity – 5200mAh
  • Runtime (300 minutes (Quiet Mode)
  • Rated Power – 35W
  • Weight – 4.5kg
  • Dimensions – Ø355*105mm

3-in-1 cleaning

At the start, most robot vacuum cleaners would do one thing and one thing only – vacuum. We suppose that’s fair since that was their intended use, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be better.

With the V3 Max Robot Vacuum, Viomi has introduced a 3-in-1 cleaning solution where the robot can not only vacuum, but it can mop as well. Users will be able to choose between sweeping only, mopping only, or a combination of sweeping and mopping to get you the cleanest floors possible.

Viomi is boasting that with its algorithm, the mopping function on the V3 Max Robot Vacuum can mimic manual mopping methods with 97.5% cleaning coverage, plus it can also help to get rid of stubborn stains thanks to the soft and hard fibered mop strips. It is also smart enough to release just enough water to mop your floors but not so wet that you will slip on it afterward.

It also features strong suction power of up to 2,700Pa where it can not only get rid of dust, but pet hair and will also work on carpets. This makes it more powerful compared to other competing robot vacuum cleaners in the same price range.

Laser navigation

Now, even though robot vacuum cleaners take out most of the work when it comes to sweeping your home, they can be slower than humans which means that even though you don’t have to lift a finger, the constant whirring can get annoying.

Viomi has equipped the V3 Max Robot Vacuum with a laser/LiDAR navigation system which improves on the robot’s efficiency. Instead of taking 60-90 minutes to clean your typical 1200-1400sqft home, which is how long most robot vacuum cleaners will take, using a laser navigation system makes it smarter at routing and making its way through your home, resulting in a cleaned home in as little as 30 to 45 minutes.

It also makes it smarter at figuring out how to move, so instead of ping-ponging and zig-zagging around your home, which is why some cleaners take forever, it will move more intelligently. Laser navigation also means that cleaning your home at night is possible since it will not require visual navigation.

The V3 Max Robot Vacuum is also packing an A35 quad-core chipset under the hood with Viomi’s SLAM algorithm that allows it to adjust its path in real time and stop itself from getting stuck.

Quick and easy dust removal, quiet operation

Traditional vacuum cleaners come with large dust bags, something that most robot vacuum cleaners don’t simply due to size constraints. If you’re worried that this means you’ll have to empty it out all the time, don’t.

The V3 Max Robot Vacuum comes with a 400ml dust bin that is good enough to last you 3-5 days without having to empty it, although this will depend on how dirty your home is. Even if you need to empty it out, it features a one-click dustbin emptying design so that you never have to get your hands dirty.

Like we mentioned earlier, robot vacuum cleaners can get pretty loud which might be annoying especially if you’re trying to get some sleep, but the V3 Max Robot Vacuum can operate as quietly at 57dB while in quiet mode, which the company claims is no louder than an operating microwave.

Smartphone control and long-lasting battery

As expected of most modern-day smart gadgets, the Viomi V3 Max Robot Vacuum can be controlled via a smartphone. All you need to do is download the Xiaomi Mi Home app and you’re all set. It even features digital assistant integration so if you want to use your voice to command it, it will play nicely with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

As for battery life, the robot comes with a 5,200mAh battery. In quiet mode, Viomi claims that this is good for about 5 hours of usage and can clean homes up to 280㎡ in a single charge. It is also smart enough to know when it’s running low on juice and will automatically go back to its docking station to recharge, and once it’s ready, it will pick up where it left off.


The Viomi V3 Max Robot Vacuum sounds like a winner. While other robot vacuum cleaners might come with other high-end and fancier features, we have to say that at $359.99 it is really quite a steal. It does everything you might want and need from a vacuum cleaner at a very attractive price point, so what else could you really ask for?
