After testing the Roborock S5 Max for a little over a week and a half, I can find very little NOT to like about it. Its the best robot vacuum yet from Roborock in my opinion, and its one of the best robot vacuum / mop combos out there.

27th January 2020

Treat yourself to crisp, just-mopped floors every day with S5 Max. Engineered for a seamless automated mopping, it has a super-sized water tank, precision water control, virtual no-mop zones, and more. Combined with precision laser mapping, advanced navigation, and intense vacuum suction, it makes spotless floors easier than ever. All you need to do is set it and get on with living.
Mop again and again. Automatically
A huge 280ml water tank. Enough to clean a 65sqm (700sqft) apartment more than 3-times or a 200sqm (2600sqft) home in one go. With a brand-new ultra-precise peristaltic pump, as used in hospital IV drips, tested for over 1500 hours of use. Now all you need to do to mop every day is fill up the tank and set a schedule.
Every drop at your command
From the app, choose the right water flow for any floor type, low-flow on stone, to high-flow for grimy kitchens. When mopping starts, it pumps extra water to wet the mop. If cleaning small areas, it turns off the water where it’s already been. And when it's done, it shuts the water off allowing the mop to start drying as it returns to the dock.
Mop floors, not carpets
No one wants their carpets mopped. Put a stop to that with virtual no-mop zones and barriers. Place them on any carpets and block off carpeted rooms, so you can mop without worry. Take off the mop unit and no-mop barriers disappear, giving S5 Max free rein to vacuum your entire home. Use no-mop zones and barriers with no-go zones and barriers for total control over where your S5 Max goes.
Even cleaning every time
Mopping with the weight of water in a tank means floors don’t get properly cleaned. As water is used, the cloth presses down more weakly. Dirt is left behind. S5 Max’s spring-loaded mop presses down with an even 300g (11oz) from start to finish. So, the last area cleaned is as fresh as the first.
Total cleaning control
S5 Max understands your home’s layout. Its laser rangefinder spins at 300rpm, sending 360° area scans through a custom algorithm in real-time. Using that data, it creates a 98% accurate floorplan map, and it knows where rooms are. With that, you can schedule cleans for one room, many rooms, or your whole home with a few easy taps on your phone.
Faster and better
A powerful 32-bit quad-core processor makes S5 Max capable of an extraordinary level of intelligence. It doesn’t just dumbly map a room. It understands the room’s shape and learns where obstacles are. It uses that knowledge to transform how it navigates, calculating the most efficient route for each room. And the best way around obstacles. Without missing a single bit of floor.
Sensitive to your home
Once S5 Max is off the leash in your home, you can leave it to work. An array of environmental sensors including an accelerometer, odometer, infra-red, compass, as well as a bumper and its hyper-accurate map of your room, mean it just goes about its business safely. It won’t roll off of steps, get trapped, or slam into your walls.
Intense and continuous suction
If your vacuum has weak suction, it leaves behind as much as it collects. Inside S5 Max is a specialized fan spinning at 1500rpm, channeling its airflow through carefully designed pathways. The suction it creates is strong enough to lift even AA batteries. Dust on hard floors is no obstacle; neither is dirt ground into the carpet. Suction even stays strong, even when the dustbin is full.
Make morning messes one less thing to worry about. Sweep crumbs and coffee grounds to the floor and head out the door. Set S5 Max to clean up when you’re gone and it can head straight to the kitchen and start a combined vacuum and mop to leave your floors spotless. Use no-mop zones, and it’ll even navigate around any carpets you’ve got along the way.
Keep your hardwood floors gleaming with zero effort. Fill up the S5 Max water tank and enjoy days of sparkling just-mopped floors before it needs refilling. No-mop zones keep carpets dry and safe, while optimized pathfinding algorithms and corner optimized cleaning finds the fastest route to cover every bit of your floor without missing even a sliver.
Time and lax cleaning dull the color of carpets. Bring yours back to vibrancy with S5 Max. Its 0.8in (2cm) climbing ability gives it the reach to clamber onto most carpets. Once there, it cranks suction up to full to pull dirt from deep in the carpet fibers. Make a bigger impact using zone-cleaning, to send the S5 Max on multiple loops of a single carpet with just a few taps.
