    Unfiltered expert opinion

    "The U2 does what it sets out to do, and it does that well. While it is a basic navigating robot, the actual cleaning performance could embarrass some higher priced robots.

    It’s important to understand that as a “smart random” robot, the U2 doesn’t utilise cameras or LiDAR to create a map. It is still somewhat methodical and will eventually cover an entire home but it does lack the total accuracy of its premium siblings that allow for smart mapping functions in the app. It is the only mopping robovac in it's price range and its performance is excellent, however it will need your help to avoid carpet.

    The U2 is great value and will clean the right home impressively well. I’d personally be happy to use it in my own apartment, but I would only recommend it for other small homes with up to 3 bedrooms."

    Thoughts.

    We really like all of Ecovacs’ 2021 range and the junior member of the family is no exception. As their entry-level robot, the U2 lacks some of the advanced features and incredible mapping you will find on the N8 and T9. At the price point though, it may be the perfect vacuum for many small homes.

    As with any “smart random” navigating robot, it’s important to know what to expect. It does not have no-go (or mop) zones so you will have to do a little more preparation before cleaning to remove risky items from the floor. Nor will it be quite as efficient while cleaning.

    If your expectations are realistic though, the U2 will surpass them. It does its job very well – it will clean your floors better than many traditional vacuums.

    What we loved.

    It successfully cleaned the entire area and returned to base every time. It is also the smartest random robot we have ever tested. It often cleans methodically and it’s hard to understand how it segments the room so logically based purely off gyroscopic measurements and a single infrared sensor.

    The actual vacuuming performance. It excelled in every cleaning test we did, inexplicably out-performing many vacuums with higher suction ratings. Similarly, the mop impressed. The U2 is the only hybrid vacuum/mop robot in this price range (from the major brands).

    It feels solid – something which can’t always be said about entry-level robot vacuums. It appears to share many of the design and physical elements of the premium Ecovacs robots.

    The U2 is likely the easiest robot vacuum to use on the market. It is simple to connect to your smart-phone and as it doesn’t have too many smart features, you can just press play and it will go to work.
    Things to consider.

    It doesn’t save a floor-plan, therefore you can’t add no-go zones, no mop-zones or select specific rooms to be cleaned.

    It will clean everywhere it can reach within the 110 min. battery life before returning to charge. If it doesn’t finish everywhere in that time, it won’t attempt to complete the rest of the house. As a result, if you have more than 3 bedrooms this robot will need extra help.

    The lack of no-mop zones means you need to get a little creative. You can put it in the bathroom or kitchen and close the door and it will mop well. However, if you have a room with a mixture of hard-floors and carpets you will need to use magnetic barriers to stop it from mopping carpet.
    Who should use this robot.

    Despite trying to set realistic expectations, I’m actually a big fan of the U2. As I said earlier, I’d happily use it in my own home and the results would be very similar to a more expensive robot.

    This robot is ideal for people who want a well-made robot vacuum that will clean the floors well. It will excel in homes of up to 3 bedrooms.

    Bonus tip: if you have a multi-level home this robot can be carried to each level. Just check that each level is less than approx. 100m².

    "We are absolutely loving our robo, "Jeeves" as he's better known as. It's just like magic, set him off at night and hey abracadabra first thing in the morning it's clean. Couldn't live without Jeeves!"

    "“Rosie” found her way around our house and we found what I thought was a clean house was a little embarrassing how much she managed to find, so much more dust. Our house is quite big so we bought “Freddie” to join the family."
