The S5 Max is Roborock’s latest product that has similar specs with the previous S5 model. Both variants have the same power rating at 2,000 Pascals, but the S5 Max has better mopping abilities with its new electronic water tank and upgraded software with the Roborock app.
It gives you the option to adjust how much water flows through and the ability to power down the vacuum motor for tasks that only require mopping.
|App Controlled Mopping
A 290ml electric water tank combined with app control makes it easy to tailor mopping for different floor types.
|Virtual No-Go and No-Mop Zones
Set virtual no-go and no-mop zones around the home, no accessories required.
Precision laser navigation, z-shape cleaning paths, and selective room cleaning ensure every room is thoroughly cleaned on demand.
Intense 2000Pa suction, combined with automatic Carpet Boost, ensures all types of floor are well cleaned.
Setup and usage
The Roborock S5 Max in Dubai comes with all its brushes assembled, so all that’s left for you to do is set up its charging dock. Roborock touts the S5 Max’s “Total Water Shutoff,” which means it shouldn’t drip while it’s docked, so you can keep the mopping module filled and ready for its next job. Nonetheless, it has included a plastic moisture-collecting tray to set the robot on while it’s charging.
The water tank slots easily under the dustbin and, once filled with tap water, can be kept there, requiring you only to attach the cleaning cloth when you want to mop your hard floors. The water tank capacity has been doubled to 280ml, enough to clean a 2,000-square-foot room, according to Roborock.
Once that’s all set up, you have to download the Mi Home app and create or log in to your account. After you add the device, the app prompts you through connecting it to your Wi-Fi network. I had the S5 Max ready to clean in less than 10 minutes.
