Neabot Q11 robot vacuum and mop review

Build & Design

It’s constructed from white ABS plastic, which has a glossy, easy-to-clean finish. It is disc-shaped. At 3.4 inches, it might not fit under some lower furniture. In the center of the top panel, there’s an oblong cutout with an LED light ring. In the middle, you’ll find the vacuum’s only two physical controls. The right soft touch button has a power icon, and starts a new cleaning cycle. The let soft touch button has a power icon, and sends the vacuum back to base. 

Filter

The base has an internal square dust bag with a capacity of 2.5 liters. This is enough for around 30 days of cleaning, depending on how much you vacuum. Not only that, but the base has an internal HEPA filter, so the expelled air is clear and fresh. 

Brushes

The main feature on the bottom of the housing is the large roller brush, which is mounted in the center. This black, wavy brush does the bulk of the work, collecting debris from carpets and floors alike. It’s also removable – when it gets tangled with hair, you can pop it out and detangle it with ease. To the right, there’s a single horizontal brush that sweeps out wide to the side. 

Dustbin & water tank

Aside from vacuuming, the Neabot Q11 can also mop. It has a 2-in-1 dust bin and water tank. The water tank is equipped with an electric pump, hence, you can control the water flow and prevent water leaks. However, since the water tank takes up some of the space in the dust bin, the dust bin has a small capacity. The dust bin only has a capacity of 0.25 L compared to the Roborock S5 Max and the iRobot Roomba 981 that have a 0.5 L capacity. But since the Neabot Q11 has an auto-empty bin, the small dust bin of the robot vacuum is not a big problem.

Auto empty base

The auto-empty base has a capacity of 2.5 liters so can hold a month’s worth of dirt. This is very helpful for those who don’t have enough time to regularly empty the dust bin and those who have dust allergies. However, the suction of the auto-empty base is not strong enough because it struggles to collect heavy debris from the dust bin of the robot vacuum.

Suction

With a max suction of 4000Pa, the Q11 had no problem cleaning my floors of dirt, pet hair, food crumbs, and other debris. Once the robot’s dustbin is full, it returns to its dock which sucks the contents into a 2.5L disposable dust bag. 

Cleaning

The mopping performance is also very good, though this is only suitable for homes with mostly hard flooring as – bizarrely – it has no way to automatically recognize and avoid carpets and rugs. You can set no-go areas, but as our only carpeted area is in the bedroom, it was easier just to close the door.

It tries to intelligently map the home into zones, marked by different colors. In our case, it divided the apartment into two, in a pretty sensible way – effectively the living room and kitchen as one zone (in blue) and the rest as another (in yellow). You can then use the app to tell it to clean a single zone. It also has the usual spot-cleaning option to clear up a spill.

Noise

On the highest power setting, the Q11 produces approximately 65dB of noise. That’s quieter than most vacuums, and it’s not terribly obtrusive while it’s going around the house. 

Battery life & charging

The internal battery takes about six hours to fully charge. When the battery is full, you’ll get about one to two hours of use, depending on conditions. The battery will last longer on solid floors, and run out faster on carpets. Either way, the performance is pretty good – much longer than most robot vacuums.

Setup

Setup is pretty standard for a robot vacuum.

You can start and pause cleanings from a button on top of the robot or pair it with the Neabot app for greater control. The second option, which takes just a few minutes to connect the Q11 to your Wi-Fi, allows you to create and customize maps, control the amount of water used to mop, schedule jobs, and track cleaning data.

The dock needs to be flush against a wall with about a foot of clearance on either side and several feet in front for the robot to maneuver in and out of the dock. Then you insert the robot into the dock’s opening to charge it.

Neabot Q11 robot vacuum and mop Performance review

The Q11’s mopping performance is on par with similar vacuum/mop hybrids. Because it drags a dampened microfiber cloth attached to the bottom of the water tank, it effectively removes surface dirt but lacks the scrubbing motion needed to bring up deeper grime. That makes it best used for maintenance cleaning with your stick mop in reserve for tougher jobs. Importantly, the Q11 does not recognize when it’s on carpet versus hard flooring, so setting no-go boundaries around rugs is critical in open areas.

Overall, the NoMo Q11 is a polished product that offers easy operation and impressive cleaning results. If you’re looking for an affordable entry point into fully automated floor cleaning, put it on your shortlist.

Pros

+Good cleaning performance+Dirty water tank captures dirt and grime+Reusable microfiber brush roll

Cons

-Cumbersome cleaning process after use-Bulky-Too tall to clean under kitchen cabinet

As the best robot mops go, the iLife Shinebot W400 hits the sweet spot between price and performance. Though it just uses plain tap water to clean your floors, we were impressed with how much dirt the mop removed from our floors.

The Shinebot W400 was a well-behaved robot mop as well, never venturing onto even the thinnest rug in our testing. Instead of an app, the W400 is controlled via remote control or the buttons on the bot itself. From here, choose one of four cleaning patterns: Area, path, spot and edge.

Better yet, we could see exactly how much grime was removed thanks to the separate onboard clean and dirty water tanks. The Shinebot W400’s mopping prowess is thanks to the twin power of a reusable microfiber brush roll that scrubs dirt away and a rubber scraper squeegee that helps remove dirty water and other debris.

While this mopping-only bot offers good cleaning performance, it’s a bit tall at 4.6 inches high and might not fit under kitchen cabinets. And, when this robot mop is done cleaning, your cleaning job begins. After each use, iLife recommends cleaning the dirty-water tank, the microfiber brush roll, the scraper and the filter with running water. Then the parts must be left out to air dry. It’s a bit of work, but the Shinebot W400 gets the mopping job done.
