Packaging and delivery set

The vacuum cleaner is packed soundly, in 2 shipping boxes. The first one is made of thick rough cardboard. The one under it is made of solid and presentable-looking colored cardboard. This box is quite informative, on it you will see an image of the device and the main technical characteristics.

The kit includes everything you need to work and start the device right out of the box, including batteries for the remote control and a virtual wall.

So, the box contains:

  • robot vacuum cleaner
  • dock station
  • network adapter
  • adapter
  • remote control complete with batteries
  • virtual wall complete with batteries
  • spare filter
  • two spare side brushes
  • brush cleaning tool
  • main and additional microfiber cloths
  • short instruction manual, by the way, and in English
  • warranty card


The vacuum cleaner has a classic round body, which shines because it has a glossy black surface with a shiny edging in the center, this edging is not metal. It highlights the area of ​​the lid, under which the waste container is located. It is made of dark transparent plastic and has a carry handle.

Looking under the cover, you can find a dust collector with two removable filters: a coarse filter and a HEPA filter.

The vacuum cleaner has compact dimensions (diameter 35 cm, height 9 cm) despite the fact that in its body it fits 2 containers, with a total capacity of 480 ml.

On top of the front side of the vacuum cleaner, there is an IR sensor and a touch control unit. It is represented by functional buttons:

  1. PLAN — set work schedule
  2. SPOT — start point mode of operation
  3. “Basket” — indicator of the fullness of the dust container
  4. HOME — installation on the charging station
  5. CLEAN — start button in “Auto” mode

Compared to other models, this robot is somewhat tall — 9 cm, there are models with a height of only 7 cm. But this is due to the possibility of wet cleaning. The increase in the body is due to the presence of a second water tank and attaching a special napkin to the bottom of the vacuum cleaner.

The end of the vacuum cleaner is also plastic, along the entire perimeter and in the bumper there are sensors, on the left and right there are air ducts.

At the front end there is a front movable bumper, at the bottom of which a rubber pad is glued. It is designed to protect the body during accidental strikes against obstacles.

On the bottom there are 4 sets of sensors that detect the difference in height and prevent the device from falling.

On the right, on the front side, there is a charging connector.

On the back of the vacuum cleaner there are side brushes made of synthetic bristles, a nozzle, 3 wheels, a place for installing a container with water, an area for attaching a napkin, a power button and a sticker with some information about the vacuum cleaner.

Between the brushes there is a contact group for docking with the base station and recharging the robot vacuum cleaner.

The vacuum cleaner is very manoeuvrable due to the 3 wheels. 2 of them are large, with a diameter of 5 cm. They have rubber pads with a protector and are well cushioned. Thanks to them, the robot vacuum cleaner copes well with obstacles up to 13 mm high.

The third wheel is located closer to the edge in the bow of the vacuum cleaner. It is designed to determine the distance traveled by the device. The wheel is easy to remove, both separately and with a platform to which it is attached. This is convenient for removing debris.

The container for water, with a volume of 180 ml, is made of combined material. Its upper part is made of black matte plastic, it has a much larger area than the tank itself. Which is made of transparent dark plastic. At first glance, it may seem that the tank is too small, but the volume of water is enough to make a wet light cleaning of a room with an area of ​​50 m2, or even more. The tank has an opening for filling it with water, which is securely closed with a silicone plug.

It is not difficult to fasten a cloth napkin, on the one hand it is put on the holder, on the other hand it is fastened with Velcro. The napkins are easy to care for and can be washed in soapy water.

There are no complaints about the build quality and materials, everything is made soundly, you will not find any irregularities, cracks, creaks, or glue. At first, the glossy surface confuses, but with a dry cloth, the dust that has settled on the case is easily brushed off, and the case shines again.

The docking station is made of plastic. On the footrest there is a contact group, which the robot vacuum cleaner runs over to replenish the battery charge level.

The base of the docking station is equipped with rubber feet, which ensure that the docking station reliably adheres to the floor surface when the robot drives into it. The correct installation of the device is confirmed by a vacuum cleaner, which beeps.

To clean a certain area of ​​the room, manufacturers put in the delivery kit with a vacuum cleaner means that restrict its movement. Some vacuum cleaners are equipped with tape guides. It is more convenient for me to use a portable wall in the form of a free-standing block. Which is the wall enclosed in this kit. This wall follows the design of the charging station. The virtual wall is powered by two LR14 batteries. It restricts the movement of the robot vacuum cleaner, in fact, acting as an obstacle that occurs on the way.

As I said above, the vacuum cleaner can be controlled using the remote control. The remote control contains buttons that control the movement of the robot vacuum cleaner, activate the Turbo mode, buttons that are responsible for choosing one or another cleaning mode and a button for returning to the charging station.

The remote control is powered by two AAA batteries, which are included in the kit.

In general, I would like to say that I was also satisfied with the kit, the manufacturer took care of it, put in spare parts, and, surprisingly for budget equipment, the entire set of batteries required. The vacuum cleaner can start working immediately after unpacking.

Functional features and operation of the device

So, V55 Pro works in 6 modes:

  1. Automatic cleaning
  2. Cleaning along the walls
  3. Spot cleaning
  4. Wet cleaning
  5. Manual way of controlling the robot using the control panel
  6. Scheduled cleaning

There are some of them that can be launched in 2 ways: from the remote control or using touch control from the device body. The only drawback of this device is the lack of software for building a floor plan. But, I’ll tell you, I was still satisfied with the result of the vacuum cleaner, after the program worked out not a single corner of the apartment remained dirty.

Let’s consider each mode in more detail

Automatic cleaning assumes that the robot independently chooses the most optimal operating mode, and you can choose 1 of 2 speeds, i.e. additionally increase or decrease the suction power.

Cleaning along walls or cleaning around the perimeter assumes that the robot is moving along the walls of the room. This mode is especially relevant for pet owners, because more often animal hair is collected along the walls.

You will start spot cleaning when you accidentally scatter cereals on the floor or decide to clean up bread / cookie crumbs after dinner. You should decide on the central point where the most garbage is concentrated, install a vacuum cleaner there, and it will begin to move in a spiral, as if sweeping the garbage under itself, while increasing the radius of action. After a certain moment, it begins to gradually move towards the center to the starting point, decreasing the radius. This mode can be activated both from the remote control and using the button on the case.

To freshen up the floor surface, you can use the Robot Vacuum Cleaner in the Wet Mode , which is compatible with any other mode, just fill the tank with water… This does not mean that the floor will shine perfectly, because no detergents can be used. However, you will notice the difference between dry cleaning and wet cleaning. I recommend using this mode after cleaning the floor with a robot, for example in automatic mode at low power. This saves battery power and is enough to start up the vacuum cleaner again. After emptying the trash can, fill the tank with water and start a new mode. During wet cleaning, the napkin adheres tightly to the floor, and water is supplied to the napkin from the water reservoir. Dust and debris will collect on the napkin. When cleaning the floor, you can interrupt the vacuum cleaner and rinse the napkin. Never leave a wet cloth attached to the vacuum cleaner after cleaning, because it is in contact with the floor surface,

By “manual cleaning” I mean step-by-step control of the vacuum cleaner using the buttons of the same name on the control panel: left / right, forward / backward.

Scheduled cleaning is one of my favorite modes. So you can program the device, and your assistant will do the cleaning before you arrive, without straining your hearing with the sound of a running engine and without limiting your actions (for example, outdoor games with a child) by their presence. Timers can be set using buttons on the device body. You can set a timer that repeats equally at the same time 7 days a week, or you can create a schedule for its work for seven days. Be careful to leave the vacuum cleaner to work on its own, you must make sure that there are no small parts, laces, wires left on the floor, and the vacuum cleaner itself is sufficiently charged at the time of starting.

When the battery charge level reaches a critical minimum, the robot vacuum cleaner will rush to the base station to replenish the charge, and then continue the cleaning cycle from the place where the program was interrupted.

At the end of the cleaning cycle, the vacuum cleaner returns to the place from which it was started, if the start was reproduced in automatic mode, and the vacuum cleaner was at the filling station, the robot will return to the base station to replenish the battery level.

By the way, about the autonomy and charging of the vacuum cleaner

This vacuum cleaner is equipped with a rather powerful battery with a capacity of 2600 mAh. This charge is enough to vacuum an apartment with an area of ​​80 squares alternately in 2 modes, dry and wet cleaning. In other words, the battery lasts for 2 hours, provided that the battery is fully charged when the cleaning cycle starts. In this case, you can safely set the maximum suction power. This is a great result for a cordless vacuum cleaner.

One of the advantages of this model is the ability to charge the device in two ways: Auto-charging or Manual charging. I described the conditions for automatic charging above. For manual charging, the device has a socket for connecting it to the network. The charging time does not depend on the selected mode.


After testing this device, I was once again satisfied with the iLife product. This vacuum cleaner has a sufficient set of functions for high-quality cleaning. Planning the cleaning area and memorizing the coordinates of the room, a variety of operating modes, including point mode and manual control, 2 power modes, all kinds of sensors that protect the device from falls and collisions, warning about the fullness of the dust collector, enhanced protection of the case, long battery life. Maneuverable and compact, it will refresh your flooring with a wet cleaning mode, or clean in hard-to-reach places, under a bed, a chest of drawers, and even can look under a kitchen cabinet. It will easily overcome the threshold, up to 13 mm high. And if you only need to clear a specific area, use a virtual wall. You can program the robot to work when you are away by setting the start time for each of the 7 days a week. By the way, having a low noise level, it will not burden you, even if it works in your presence. The good news is that the trash bin is removable, and the filters can be cleaned and rinsed with water.

I would like to say that iLife products are popular among buyers from the CIS countries. I was convinced at the moment when, taking my vacuum cleaner from the transport company, I almost took someone else’s, the same by mistake. And there are also enough English-language reviews on Aliexpress about them.

That’s all for me. If you have any questions, ask them in the comments below the article.
