The full name of the Viomi is V-RVCLM21B which we find long and confusing, most likely you will not remember it, so that’s why you see the robot named as the Viomi V2.
The robot vacuum cleaners with the LDS laser kind of look-alike. But honestly, the Viomi V2 looks a bit different. It has a fantastic dark-grey finish. Inside the “head” there is the LDS laser that works as a scanner of a cleaning area and helps to make a map of the room. In the middle of the body, there is a logo. One physical button works as a Home and Power button. Under the lid, you will find a dustbin and a cleaning tool, very similar to the way the Roborock S5 build. The dustbin can be switched into a water tank. Underneath, there is a cleaning brush that is a mix of thermoplastic elastomer and durable nylon materials. Two large wheels can climb an obstacle that is up to 20 mm height and one side brush that catches debris along the walls.
The biggest feature of the V2 is probably the enormous water tank with 560 ml capacity, which is far more than any suction robot could achieve so far! In addition, the suction capacity of 2150 Pascal is worth mentioning. How the whole thing will work in practice and whether the Viomi is more of a “wiping robot” than a suction robot will then be shown in the test. Of course, an abyss detection and a collision protection are also built in.
The Viomi V2 is equipped with an LDS laser inside the tower. The laser scans the surrounding of the cleaning area building a map of the interior, so the robot knows where it needs to clean. Mapping helps the robot not to clean the areas it has already cleaned. Mapping makes cleaning and navigation more efficient.
The Viomi can climb an obstacle up to 20 mm tall, so the robot is ideal for thicker carpets. There are 3 cleaning modes for different needs: eco, normal, turbo. The V2 makes about 69-76 dB of noise, the same as the Roborock S5 does. With the strongest suction in the industry and great climbing ability, the V2 performs well on thin and thicker carpets. The cleaning brush works great in terms of picking up pet hair, dust, and debris. It does not get hair clogged as much as other bristled brushes do. Inside the dustbin, there is a washable HEPA filter that lasts longer than non-washable ones. The robot is safe for those who suffer from asthma and allergy.
