ECOVACS Brings Advanced Technology to Entry-Level All-in-One Vacuum-and-Mop Robots with DEEBOT U2 and U2 Pro
SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Smart home robotics company ECOVACS, today launched its DEEBOT U2 series, the most advanced entry-level vacuum and mop in-one-go robots on the market, setting a new standard for function and value in the category. The DEEBOT U2 and U2 Pro systematically vacuum and mop hard floors, unlike most random-pattern entry-level vacuum-only robots on the market, more effectively cleaning homes to free up time for family and fun. The U2 Pro also delivers the first and only pet-specific vacuum-and-mop accessories with the U2, designed to efficiently and effectively tackle pet hair and dander.
Entry-level robot cleaners usually have random patterns, delivering less efficient cleanings, and don’t include any mopping functionality. The DEEBOT U2 series brings a systematic cleaning process, as well as an all-in-one-go vacuum and mop system to deliver greater cleaning and bacteria removal to hard floors. For vacuum only jobs, the U2 features 3 suction powers, including a Max+ for maximum carpet vacuuming. Through the ECOVACS app, users can also schedule cleanings and adjust the water flow level. Magnetic boundary strips, sold separately, will ensure U2s only visits and clean in the areas their user wants them to.
U2 features include:
- Vacuum + Mop in One Go with OZMO mopping system: An advancement pioneered by ECOVACS, DEEBOT robots can vacuum and mop hard floors in-one-go, removing up to 99.26% of bacteria. With a 300 ml water tank, it is on average twice the size of competitors, to cover twice the space.
- Hard Floor Mode: With the mopping plate attached, the U2 moves in a systematic cleaning path to prevent missed or repeated areas, cleaning faster and more efficiently than random pattern robots.
- Up to 2 Hours of Runtime: The 2600mAh lithium ion battery covers up to 2,000 square feet of continuous cleaning on a single charge.
In addition, the U2 Pro, designed specifically for pet families, additionally comes with:
- A silicone, bristle-free brush for tangle-free cleaning.
- An extra-large, 800 ml dustbin with a three-layer, high efficiency filter for minute particles including dust, debris and pet hair / dander.
- A 3200mAh battery for up to 2.5 hours of cleaning time.
