    Our View

    Unfiltered expert opinion

    "The X1 Plus is a sibling of Ecovacs flagship, the X1 Omni. The Omni has proven a popular robot; however the self-wash station is rather large and if you don’t have huge expanses of hard-flooring, it’s not always worth the extra investment.

    The X1 Plus comes with all the same smarts, just with a more compact base and a more palatable price point. The cleaning performance remains the same (very good), it still has the camera and DToF for object object avoidance and Yiko, Ecovacs’ built-in voice assistant."

    Thoughts.

    As I know the X1 Omni well, it was immediately clear what the X1 Plus has to offer. The robot itself is very similar, with the only notable difference being the mopping attachment.

    The key selling point on the Omni is the base itself, as it can wash the mopping pads and refill the water tanks mid-clean. It’s important to note though that neither robot can transit over carpet with the mopping pads attached, so if you have multiple smaller hard-floor areas separated by carpet, that self-cleaning function won’t be fully utilised.

    This is where the X1 Plus comes in. You can get the cleaning performance, a cute base, and the premium X1 design and features, without paying extra for a base you may or may not use.

    What we loved.

    Quick mapping means that the robot simply drives into each room and takes a scan, without attempting to clean the entire house. This is a huge step up on other models, as houses that would normally take hours to map can be completed in ~20 minutes.

    The auto-empty dock means that the robot can empty itself every time it returns to charge. It can hold up to 30 days of debris. The dock is small and excellently designed, so it will hide away in any luxury home.

    We finally we have a robot vacuum that looks minimalist and luxury. Robot vacuum brands are usually guilty of making appliances that look like toys, however the X1 will blend into a designer home. It was designed by Jacob Jensen Design, a Danish firm who specialise in luxury accessories, such as watches.

    At 5,000 pascals, there is potential that the X1 may be the first robot vacuum to clean as well as a cordless vacuum in a single pass. While some cordless vacuums have higher suction ratings, the X1 doesn’t have to suck debris up a long tube and it also has a thick, motor-driven roller brush.

    It features a similar Ozmo Pro module to the T9+. The whole mopping module scrubs in big, fast movement. I personally think that it does every bit as well as the rotational mopping pads on the X1 Omni.

    Yiko, the built-in voice assistant is more useful than I initially thought. It turns out that once you’ve adjusted to talking to your vacuum and telling it where to clean, having to take out your phone and open an app starts to feel like work.

    Some other premium robot vacuums have object detection. This is a secondary system that helps the robot avoid things below the line of sight of the main navigation sensor. In most cases, they either use a laser or camera system, however there are limitations to both methods. The X1 has both. While it still will occasionally get stuck, it is the best we have tested at avoiding socks, cables… and pet messes.
    Things to consider.

    The mops are at a fixed height, so the robot cannot clean or even cross carpet with them attached. Fortunately, they’re simple to clip on but it’s important to understand what this means.

    You will still need to untangle hair from the brush occasionally, particularly if you have pets or long-haired people in your home.

    The battery capacity is the same as the Ecovacs T9+. There are software improvements to make it more efficient, however on maximum suction mode it will need to recharge quite frequently. It’s generally better to use max. mode in busy areas of your home and turn it down in bedrooms. This can be done through the app and schedules.
    Who should use this robot.

    As a premium robot, it’s designed for large homes and because it saves multiple floorplans you can use it on multiple levels. The cleaning performance is exceptional.

    Ecovacs have provided a much more streamlined experience. It’s easy to get connected, create a map, and configure everything just how you want it.

    I think the X1 Plus is best suited for people who want a premium robot but have a mixture of hard-flooring and carpet. If you have predominantly hard flooring, you may still wish to consider the X1 Omni.

    This is an estimate to help you choose which robots to consider. The max cleaning area is more accurate if you know the size of your home.

    Up to approx. 3 to 4 bedrooms

    This is the maximum size home the robot can clean.  This will be affected if you have a lot of furniture or particularly deep-pile carpet.

    Max cleaning area 275 m²

    Self-mapping robots save a floor-plan of your home to allow you to add no-go lines and room-select (if available).  Some robots only support single-level homes (1 floor-plan), while others allow you to save multiple.

    Single & Multi-level homes

    This is the pressure of the suction.  This is a good indication of cleaning performance, however it isn't the whole picture.  Check out our test videos to see real-life cleaning.

    5000 Pa suction

    Some robots can automatically empty themselves into their base.  Most auto-empty stations hold 30 full cleans.

    Auto-empty station: Included

    A vacuum always needs a filter. It does not filter what is picked up, it filters out what escapes back into the room.  It is particularly important for people with allergies or respiratory concerns.

    High-efficiency is typically 99% of allergens down to 10μm, while a HEPA filter is 99.97% of allergens down to 0.3μm.

    High Efficiency Filters

    This is one of the most important specs for any robot as it is the main factor in how smart it is.

    Navigation: Ultra-accurate (LiDAR)

    Watch the navigation test video on this page to see how efficiently it maps a room!

    Methodical and accurate navigation

    Some robots have secondary navigation looking at the floor to help it avoid objects that may jam the vacuum.  These are typically 3D lasers or cameras with object recognition.

    Artificial Intelligence: Object Avoidance

    Note: most robots will run without connecting to a smart-phone, however many require an app to access all the features.

    "Hey Robomate, clean my home!"

    Some robots are smart-home compatible and can be voice controlled. 

    If this is a key purchasing factor for you, we suggest getting in touch prior to purchasing.

    Compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home

    Schedule cleans to suit your schedule.  For example, schedule your robot to start at 8:30 every morning while you're dropping the kids off to school.

    Schedule cleans via the app

    No-go zones are virtual barriers.  They're normally very easy to set-up by drawing lines on the map your robot automatically creates on your smart-phone.  This is very useful if there are any unusually tricky spots in the house.

    No-Go Zones - tell the robot to avoid specific areas

    With room select, the robot will clean the selected area(s) and return home without trying to clean the rest of the house.  Traditionally robots will clean everywhere they can access, however some premium robot vacuums have the ability to schedule specific rooms.

    Room select - specify which rooms to clean

    All our robots will recharge automatically, however some will remember where they left off and resume cleaning if they didn't finish the job.

    Some robots can also do mopping.  In some cases this can affect vacuuming performance so watch our full review if this is important for you.

    Vacuum and Mopping

    Water capacity for mopping.  On most robot mops this will need to be refilled between cleans.

    240 ml water for mopping

    No mop zones let you tell the robot what is carpet and what is hard-floor.  Robot mops without this capability will require quite a lot of set-up to be effective.

    Virtual no mop zones to prevent mopping on carpet

    D-shaped robots can clean a lot more effectively close to walls than circle robots.

    Circle robots can navigate a lot more easily in tight spaces as they can rotate on the spot.
