Externally, iLife V5s Pro looks very attractive and modern. The upper part of the body has a golden hue, which gives the robot vacuum cleaner a special sophistication and elegance. And the small dimensions of the device allow it to penetrate under the furniture and clean out the accumulated dirt and dust from there. A review of the front side of the case shows us the touch button for turning on the robot, the iLife branding, as well as the button for opening the dust collector compartment. The dust collector is taken out from above.

In addition, from the infrared remote control, you can schedule cleaning and set a specific time for the iLife V5s Pro to automatically start.

As the test shows, the device copes quite well with its main task – dry cleaning of hard floor coverings such as parquet, tile, linoleum, laminate, etc., but is also able to freely drive on carpets with not too high pile and clean them .

Cleaning under furniture

And thanks to the built-in wet cleaning function, the robot vacuum cleaner is able to wipe the floors and refresh them after dry cleaning. To do this, the robot has a separate reservoir for liquid with a volume of 300 milliliters and two holes on the bottom of the body for liquid to enter a microfiber cloth mounted on a special holder.

The dust collector has two stages of filtration: one is a mesh filter to collect the main, large debris that can be washed with water, and the second is a HEPA filter that traps smaller particles of dirt and dust.

The user manual is included with the robot vacuum cleaner, but it is only written in Chinese and English, so you will have to take care of the translation yourself. The information contained in the manual is standard: here is a description of the design, performance and functions of the robot, explanations for the use and maintenance of the device.

Advantages and disadvantages

Summing up, I would like to consider the pros and cons of this robot vacuum cleaner with a hotel list.

Advantages of Chuwi iLife V5s:

  1. Modern design and small body size.
  2. Maneuverability and good overcoming of obstacles (the vacuum cleaner drives even on the most fleecy carpets).
  3. Powerful battery.
  4. The presence of sensors and sensors against falling and collisions with furniture.
  5. Remote control with batteries included.
  6. Equipped with a soft bumper.
  7. Separate water tank.
  8. Cleaning planning.
  9. Double filtration system.
  10. Increased suction power.

The main disadvantages of a robot vacuum cleaner:

  1. No motion limiter included.
  2. Small suction hole.
  3. There is no automatic water supply to the napkin.
  4. The scheduling function is not fully implemented, planning is carried out only for one day.

Considering that the average price of a model in 2018 is 12,500 rubles, the shortcomings are quite obvious and justified.
