Thought i'd put through a discussion group for people who own this vacuum. Noticed repeat questions to would be good to centralise everything.
On a personal note I bought this puppy last week and all I can say is i'm VERY IMPRESSED!
Cheapest listed were found at AliExpressfor approx $25 AUD
Can also be found on ShoppingSquare for similar price for those wanting to deal 'locally'
It was noted by Deviner that extra life can be gained out of the filters by simply washing them. I've yet to test but willing to give it a go to try and squeeze some life outta it.
One user noted that you can hack your robot vac to allow use of cheaper accessories but I personally am not game to try. For those interested heres the Link
For those looking for Decals to make your vacs look fully sick, simply have a look here. Ended up investing in a captain america shield!
I have a shaggy rug, will this work on that?
Short answer is yes but depends on the rug. Unfortunately mine is a bit too thick but depends on the rug.
Following on from this JLHC mentions that cliff sensors can have trouble with black rugs. White tape might hold the solution to this.
I have a security system. Will this set it off?
I have a security system at home and it does not set it off. My security system however is heat sensored and not motion. A lot of security systems will have 2 lights on their sensors. One light indicating motion (green or yellow usually) and one indicating heat (usually red). I simply sat on the couch and saw mine turn green when the robot moved but didn't turn red. But if you want to be sure simply set your alarm and robot vac on, go for a walk nearby and suss out whether it will work or not.
How does this go with pet hair?
Would love to hear from others any tips, tricks or traps so I can add to this list
Can I extend the life of the filter using toilet paper?
According to this Amazon review you can. Use 2ply over the inside of the filter makes a world of difference.
