If you’re looking for robots that can do more than just a few, iRobot’s Roomba i7 + and i9+ devices can cost a fortune. But being an independent sucker with a white background, it makes sense to be expensive. But Wellbots is currently on sale which is knocking i7 + up to $ 599 and i9 + up to $ 899 when using code 200 ADGET out. Yes, those are still the highest prices left for robots, but they are the same discounts we saw last Friday – and we haven’t seen them very low since then.
We reviewed Roomba i7+ when it first came out and gave it a number 87. Its main advantage over other robo-vacs is its clean space, which is attached to the device port where it can be replaced. This means you don’t have to dispose of machine waste every time you use it – you only need to clean it once every 30 jobs. The only downside to this setup is the home bags that you have to add to your shopping list.
Plus, the i7+ does a great job of cleaning the floor as well as the solid. Devindra Hardawar found that it was quieter than other vacuums and was able to easily control itself from the wires and cords that were on the floor. It has the ability to create smart maps so it can track rooms in your home and you can control it either through a mobile app or with the terms of Alexa and Google Assistant.
Roomba i9+ has the same look as i7+ and comes back white. But the biggest difference comes in the design and gravity: the i9+ has a more neutral look, which allows it to reach the hardest of places and has the Power Boost technology, which can help you clean the carpet even more efficiently.
