Purely visual, the suction robot makes a chic impression. The question is how well it is processed. The chosen colors could look cheap without good processing. The XShuai works with two brush heads (for example, the ILIFE V7S Pro works with only one) and that for a working time of 120 minutes. Funny: In the description stands, the suction robot would need 90 minutes to suck the apartment and 30 minutes (!) to find his charging station again. Let us hope that this is faster in practice. The display on the upper part of the vacuum cleaner makes it possible to see in which suction mode the robot is located. Various numerical combinations shown on the display support the reading of information. For example, error messages can be traced.
After a charging time of just under 5 h , the suction robot is ready for use. The app allows an analysis of the room (via a built-in gyrosensor) in advance , the suction robot should remember and store the events (unlike the Xiaomi vacuum cleaner) can. Whether he can start from the app on the road is not clear from the technical data. Also not whether the current location in the four walls can be represented. This is also more of a gimmick than a feature with special added value. It is more practical to schedule the start time of the sucker using the remote control or the app. So he starts his ministry when you want it. Maybe when you’re out of the house. It detects obstacles and the charging station, which is installed in the front part of the teat, via several IR sensors. It also detects depths and heights and can thus escape the fall from the staircase.
The XShuai can also be controlled remotely. As in the app you can set the start time and select one of the four different modes. Strangely, the controls on the remote control can be counted on one hand. Therefore I dare to question the description, that each of the four modes can be adjusted via the remote control. With Amazons Alexa, the suction robot can also be started, scheduled and stopped again. For this, one must give the suction robot before a name and this Alexa communicate. Most users of a suction robot seem to give their little robotfriends one or other name, as the comments often show. 😉In which languages the sucker listens, experience reports will have to show.
Dealing with obstacles and modes
The Haier XShuai T370 can overcome obstacles up to a height of 1 cm, with gradients dadrüber should have problems. This also applies to most other suction robots. The cleaning area is 120-150 m², which is in the range of the 2600 mAh battery and the corresponding working time of nearly two hours within the range of possible. Especially if the vacuum cleaner already knows the premises and goes according to schedule, the cleaning should be done quickly and efficiently. Despite the high suction power, only a volume of 60 dB is specified, which is a very good value in this context.
For a vacuum robot with these technical data you do not have to dig deep into your pockets. Similar models can be found just below or above the €200 mark. The XShuai T370 is an interesting addition to the high suction power especially the whole package with the many features: App control, wiping function, four different suction modes and control via Alexa can be seen as a battle to the Xiaomi suction robot. Especially analyzing and storing the premises can be a huge plus for the automatic working of the vacuum cleaner. If it works. It is, of course, a matter of course, how the suction cup is in practice. What do you all mean? Shall we test the Haier XShuai T370?
