ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 Turbo keeps your floors nice and clean without you lifting a finger


Our lives are pretty busy. Some of us have school, some of us have work, and some of us have either of those and a family to look after on top of everything else. This means that you have little time to do things that you care about.

So if you’re looking for a way to free up a little spare time for yourself, how about outsourcing your cleaning to a robot? If the idea of being able to kick your feet up, catch up on your favorite book or TV shows while your house is being cleaned, then perhaps the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 Turbo robot vacuum cleaner and mop could be the perfect answer.

Sleek and stealthy design

Right off the bat, what caught our attention was the design of the X1 Turbo which features a dark gray charging base. We have to say that we’re digging the dark look because it helps blend better into your home surroundings. For example, you could place it in a corner somewhere and it will be out of sight, only coming out to clean when you need it to.

As for the actual robot itself, it features a black bumper used to help it detect objects like table legs and walls, while the rest of the build is white. It’s a nice contrast and for those concerned it might look too bright, when it goes back into its charging base, you’ll only see the black front bumper, helping maintain its stealthy look.

Intelligent cleaning features

Now, what good is a robot vacuum cleaner if it doesn’t actually get the job done or if it does it poorly, right? If that’s the case, you might just be better off cleaning your home yourself. Thankfully, smarts is an area that the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 Turbo does not fall short on.

The X1 Turbo comes with features like Auto-cleaning. This is where the robot can actually clean and maintain itself, such as automatically washing and drying the mop attachment, and refilling the water tank with clean water when it is running low.

This is versus other robot vacuum cleaners that also have mop attachments where users need to remove the mop attachment and clean it themselves, and also fill the tank themselves. The ability to automatically clean itself will make it more efficient, especially if you’re not home.

Speaking of mopping, there is also a built-in Auto-mopping feature that uses the company’s Turbo 2.0 technology. This is where the dual mops attached to the robot will be able to spin at speeds of 180 RPM, and with its pressurized pads, it will be able to scrub your floors clean of hard-to-remove stains and spills.

Smart movement

One of the main reasons anyone would get a robot vacuum cleaner is because it can clean your house without any input on your side of things. This makes it great when want to set a cleaning schedule, even if you’re away, but how do you know your robot won’t get stuck somewhere while you’re not around?

With the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 Turbo, it comes with auto mapping features using the company’s TrueMapping 2.0 technology, which according to ECOVACS is the same tech you might find in self-driving cars.

It will allow the robot vacuum to map a home’s layout quickly and accurately by creating not just 2D maps, but 3D maps as well. With the use of 3D maps, users can tap on furniture in the map to let the robot know that there are obstacles or objects in the way that it should clean around.

Combine that with the auto avoidance system, you will end up with a robot vacuum cleaner that actually spends its time cleaning as opposed to bumping its way through your home trying to figure its way around.

The X1 Turbo also comes with support for voice commands via the YIKO digital assistant, allowing users to command the robot and get it to do things without having to pull out their smartphone and control it via an app.

Early bird promotion

If the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 Turbo sounds like a robot vacuum cleaner you think could be immensely helpful in keeping your home clean, there is some good news because according to ECOVACS, if you were to place an order before the 31st of March, customers will be able to claim a $150 discount as part of their early bird promotion, and customers will also get a 1 + 1 year warranty.
