Continuing its quest to produce (and perfect) every conceivable battery-operated product, Anker now sells a freaking robotic vacuum, and you can score one for just $200 (down from $260) for a limited time as part of a Mother’s Day promotion.

Unfortunately, the RoboVac doesn’t have a ton of reviews yet, but early feedback is very positive, even though it only costs a fraction of the price of an equivalent Roomba. Shane’s had a chance to try it out and notes that it’s significantly quieter and smarter than other Roomba competitors he’s tried, navigating and edging with ease. He also called out the superior battery life and far more durable brushes.


Like a Roomba, the RoboVac can maneuver around obstacles, run automatically on a schedule, and even dock itself on a charger once it’s finished cleaning. The main difference is that it doesn’t include a virtual wall system, but that shouldn’t be a huge deal for most buyers.

I got a Roomba a few months ago, and haven’t had to manually vacuum my floors ever since. If that’s not worth a few hundred bucks, I don’t know what is.
