Roborock has recently unveiled its impressive new robot vacuum mop, the Q Revo, which boasts enhanced build quality and remarkable cleaning capabilities. However, it’s worth noting that the previous S8 model from Roborock still holds its own as a reliable choice.
Well, Roborock Q Revo is better for those with larger homes and who value extended hands-free cleaning. It offers a larger mopping range and a higher dirt capacity, making it suitable for big spaces.
Whereas the Roborock S8 is more compact and efficient, making it a great choice for smaller spaces or quick touch-ups. It excels in mopping technologies and advanced obstacle avoidance.
But the question still remains whether the new Roborock Q Revo truly replaces the beloved Roborock S8 mop or not. Let’s dive deep into this.
|Specification||Roborock Q Revo||Roborock S8|
|Suction Power (Pa)||5500||6000|
|Cleaning Range (meters)||Up to 399||Up to 300|
|Navigation Technology||Reactive Tech||ReactiveAI 2.0 Obstacle Avoidance|
|Dirt Capacity (liters)||2.7||2.5|
|Water Tank Capacity (liters)||5||0.3|
Aesthetically, not too many changes are noticeable between these two robot mops and all the differences can be found internally. Just like the Roborock S8, you will find both black and white color variants for the new Roborock Q Revo as well, and that’s pretty much it.
If we check out the suction power first, the Roborock Q Revo boasts an impressive 5500Pa suction power to ensure effective pick up of dirt and debris from your floors.
On the other hand, the Roborock S8 Mops takes it a notch higher with 6000Pa to provide even stronger suction for a thorough clean. It also features the DuoRoller Brush, which enhances the sweeping performance and enables better pickup of larger particles. Surprisingly, the latest Q Revo comes with less suction power compared to the previous S8 model. So it seems that, even though the new S8 came out much earlier, it still manages to beat the new Q Revo in terms of suction speed.
Q Revo offers an impressive mopping range of up to 399 meters to make it suitable for larger homes. Besides that, it provides up to 7 weeks of hands-free cleaning, reducing the frequency of manual intervention.
The S8 variant on the other hand offers up to 300 meter cleaning range, including a personalized cleaning schedule to suit your specific needs. Also, the off-peak charging allows the robot to charge when energy costs are lower, ensuring a cost-effective and efficient cleaning experience.
If you have a bigger household on your hands and want to go all out, the Q Revo is your go-to. But if you’re looking for something more compact and efficient for smaller spaces, the S8 is ready to lend a helping hand.
Sensor and Navigation
Obstacle Avoidance and Navigation are other important things that need to be considered before buying a robot vacuum mop. In this case, both models excel in this matter, making them reliable and safe cleaning companions. However, there are a few differences here and there.
The Q Revo incorporates Reactive Tech obstacle avoidance with a Sensient sensor array to navigate around furniture, walls, and other potential obstacles to ensure that it can effectively clean hard-to-reach areas.
In comparison, the Roborock S8 Mops, took it a step further with ReactiveAI 2.0 Obstacle Avoidance featuring an infrared sensor, which allows it to quickly react and navigate around objects in real-time, further minimizing the chances of collisions.
As we can see, for some reason, Roborock decided to stay back when it comes to putting the updated navigation technology on the new Roborock Q Revo, which is a bit questionable.
The Q Revo comes equipped with a whopping 2.7 liters of dirt capacity, which is quite impressive! On top of that, It boasts a generous 5-liter water tank, which means it can handle larger areas without needing constant water refills. Thanks to this additional multifunctional docking support, Q Revo is capable of cleaning itself automatically, which goes up to 7 weeks.
The S8 model, on the other hand, has a slightly smaller dirt bag capacity of 2.5 liters. Additionally, it has a 300-milliliter water tank capacity, which is smaller compared to the Q Revo. However, it doesn’t come with a multifunctional dock, just like the Q Revo. So, you might need to change the filter manually quite often. But, It’s perfect for smaller spaces or quick touch-ups, ensuring your floors stay squeaky clean.
As for overall design, both models offer decent functionality but use different technologies. The Roborock Q Revo comes equipped with dual spinning mops that operate at a speed of 200 RPM, which efficiently scrubs your floors. Also, it has auto mop lifting of up to 7 millimeters, which offers seamless transitions between floor types such as tiles or wood.
In contrast, the Roborock S8 Mops utilize the VibraRise 2.0 Mopping System featuring Sonic Mopping technology. It ensures consistent mopping pressure and high-speed scrubbing, which can be lifted up to 5 millimeters. Thanks to this advanced built quality, users will get a more thorough and efficient mopping experience. So when it comes to overall build quality Roborock Q Revo is one step ahead, due to its higher operating speed and higher lifting capability.
In the end, both the Roborock Q Revo and Roborock S8 Mops offer powerful cleaning capabilities and advanced features to enhance your cleaning experience.
While the Roborock Q Revo impresses with its decent suction power, extensive mopping range, and extended hands-free cleaning, the Roborock S8 Mops excels in its impressive mopping technologies, advanced obstacle avoidance, and customizable cleaning routines. However, if you are looking for the best value then the Roborock S8 is definitely the one you should look forward to.
