Is it a spy plane? No! Is it a band? No! It’s the latest robovac from Ecovacs, the 2-in-1 Deebot U2.

The newest addition to the Deebot family offers all the vacuuming power that you’d expect, combined with the ability to mop hard surfaces.

Ecovacs have a motto of “A robot for every family”, and with the keenly-priced new U2, available now, everybody has a chance to get an all-in-one robot cleaning solution of their very own at an affordable price. Why spend all that time cleaning when your rotund robot buddy can do the bulk of it for you?

Despite its low price, features abound. The U2 is compatible with Google Assistant and Alexa – “Hey Google, start Deebot” – and has “smart move navigation” to make sure that it cleans wherever it should, rather than just blindly running about bumping into walls. You can even manage everything through a smartphone app, including scheduling regular cleaning times or turning it on from afar.

It’s claimed that the U2 can clean an entire home in one charge – a battery life of up to 110 minutes is promised – before it scuttles back to its charger by itself, ready to clean another day.
