The Chinese company Alfawise offers a wide range of different products, including smart robotic vacuum cleaners. Today I will talk about the updated model of the robot vacuum cleaner, which was called Alfawise V8S Max.
Note : The Price Now For This Product On Gearbest Is
The past generation of the Alfawise V8S Pro vacuum cleaner has gained quite good popularity due to its low cost and good performance.
The new Alfawise V8S Max model received although minor improvements, but the price remained the most important factor. Now you can order a robot vacuum cleaner V8S Maxat a low cost up to $180. Currently, the V8S Max modelwill cost you a little cheaper – $165.
The main features of the new smart robot vacuum cleaner I can attribute are 1800 Pa suction, 2600 mAh battery capacity, the presence of both dry and wet cleaning.
It is also worth noting that the device was equipped with ultraviolet light, which during cleaning will destroy the structure of DNA and RNA in bacteria. Therefore, any virus or microorganism cannot survive. Actual function, which is especially associated with the coronavirus recently.
Before starting the cleaning tests, I want to look at the equipment and check the build quality of the robot cleaner itself.

|Water Tank Capacity:||350ml|
|Noise:||less than 55dB|
|Charging time:||3 hours|
|Operating time:||about 2.5 hours|
|Dimensions:||330 x 330 x 76 mm|
The smart vacuum cleaner comes in a rather large box and has a huge number of interesting components.
Inside the box I found – this is a robot vacuum cleaner itself, a charging dock, a power adapter, four rotational brushes, where two of them are optional. There is also a remote control, a rag for wet cleaning, a brush for cleaning debris.
As for a budget smart robot vacuum cleaner, the equipment is quite large and a big bonus is the presence of a control panel. Many vacuum cleaners use one control method – this is thanks to the smartphone, but the Alfawise V8S Max model is also controlled by the remote control.
The traditional appearance of the Alfawise V8S Max is almost no different from modern smart robotic vacuum cleaners. This is a typical round shape, but now the device is made in matte black plastic.
If you recall the previous generation V8S Pro, it was made in white.
In addition, I can note the absence of laser control, but the new robot vacuum cleaner received navigation with a gyroscope and voice control. One of the main reasons why the new Alfawise robot vacuum cleaner is inexpensive is the lack of a tower at the top of the case with laser navigation.
There are two control buttons on top – this is the power and back to the charging dock. There is also a lid under which there is a container for garbage and dust. The capacity of the main container is 600 ml, and for a container with wet cleaning – 350 ml.
If we talk about size and weight, then the device received dimensions – 330 x 330 x 76 mm, and the weight was 2.7 kg. In general, these are typical sizes and weights for most smart robotic vacuum cleaners.
There are various sensors to the entire body of the device, for example, there are several infrared sensors, collision avoidance, smart fall protection, the low overcoming of obstacles.
The lower part of the Alfawise V8S Max received the usual two driving wheels and one steering wheel. There are also contacts for charging to the docking station, the main orange rotary brush, and two auxiliaries for garbage collection.
In addition, the manufacturer installed an ultraviolet sensor with a disinfectant at the bottom of the robot cleaner. A very interesting solution, but how it will prove to be in practice, I will tell a little later.
I would also like to talk about the control panel, which is made like a robot in black. It received a small number of control buttons so that older people can control a smart robot with a vacuum cleaner without any problems.
I have no complaints about the build quality and materials used. The device is made well and does not have strong flaws.
The new generation of smart robot vacuum cleaner Alfawise V8S Max received a similar suction power of 1800 Pa, like last year’s model.
For me, this indicator is not a record, since I had devices with better performance up to 2200 Pa on the test. But again, do not forget about the price tag on Alfawise, in comparison with the flagship robotic vacuum cleaners, it has a price more than 3 times less.
If we talk about battery life, then the new generation V8S Max got a little more battery capacity – 2600mAh, and the previous one had 2500 mAh. Of course, the capacity value has not changed significantly, but as the practice has shown for a small apartment – this battery capacity will be quite enough.
For example, a full charge will be enough for cleaning up to 150 square meters. An interesting and important point is when the charge level is 20%, the device automatically goes to the charging dock. After recharging, it starts cleaning from the same place where it finished. Convenient and practical function, so you do not need to monitor the battery level.
As I already mentioned, the new V8S Max robot vacuum cleaner received not only dry cleaning but also wet cleaning. The system works thanks to a three-level water supply and due to this, the device does not leave large wet puddles.
The noise during wet cleaning is almost inaudible and is about 30 dB, but during dry cleaning, the maximum noise is about 55 dB.
The robot vacuum cleaner received three modes of operation – it is the minimum, medium, and maximum. If you do not have carpets, but only laminate, linoleum, or tile, then the average level of work will be sufficient for the daily cleaning of your home.
Management received three different operating modes. This is through an application on a mobile smartphone, a remote control, or voice control.
Controls are performed both in manual and in automatic operation mode. In the application on the smartphone, you can set the timer for the start of cleaning, for example, when you are not at home. You can also put a barrier in the application where the device should not be removed. The rest of the application is pretty standard and has similar features as other robotic vacuum cleaners.
Now I wanted to tell a little about my impression of the quality of cleaning. Of course, the robot vacuum cleaner does not work perfectly, as with the laser control system, but I had no strong problems.
I planned for the Alfawise V8S Max to do dry cleaning once, and then still wet. The result was quite positive. For example, I did not find dust, except for the corners, but this is a big problem for many robotic vacuum cleaners.
As for the UV ultraviolet sensor, I could not check it, because I do not have a device that detected the presence of microbes before and after cleaning. But I will hope that it works the best way.
I also conducted a series of tests, I scattered various seeds and cereals on the floor, then the V8S Max robot did its job well. Cleaning on a small carpet also did not cause problems. But if you have animals, then the hair will not be removed as well as regular dust.
Alfawise V8S Max – received a modern black design with a large number of sensors, including an ultraviolet sensor.
In terms of quality of cleaning, I have no particular complaints, given the low cost. Of course, if you have a budget of more than $350, then it is better to choose a model with a laser navigation system.
If you have long planned to buy a smart robot vacuum cleaner, but you have a limited budget, then the V8S Max model will be a good choice.
