Coredy G850 vs R750 vs L900 what’s the difference between them?

The Coredy R750 is the basic model among these three robots, it cleans in a random way without mapping ability;
the G850 seems be more advanced than the R750, it cleans in a zig-zag pattern and display a map that shows you where it cleaned;
the L900 is the “smartest”, it maps your home and allows you to set barrier in the app instead of using magnetic strip, command it to clean specific areas, and it can also resume cleaning where it left off before recharging.
If you want the self empty model, you can check out the L900X, it comes with the automatic dirt disposal station that can remove dust from the dust bin. So you do not need to empty the bin yourself after each cleaning. The only thing you need to do is replacing the 4L dust bag when it is full. How often to change the bag? It depends. According to Coredy, up to 30 days.

Coredy R300 vs R500+/R550 vs R580 vs R650 vs R750 what’s the difference between them?

The Coredy R300,R500+/R550,R580,R650 and R750 are similar cleaning robots. They all clean in a random pattern, they do not map your home, they do not support setting barrier in smartphone app.
Here are some differences between these robots that you may want to know if you’re deciding between them.

  • The Coredy R650 is the only one that Coredy offers custom robot skin service. They allows you to choose your own image to customize the R650 skin. If you want to buy it as a Christmas gift or birthday gift or present for anything else, you may want to take this one into consideration.
  • Though most of them support mopping and magnetic boundary strip, R750 is the only one that comes with both kits: the mopping kits and magnetic tape.
  • If you want to control the robot via smartphone app instead of using the included remote control, then you can have a look at the R580 and R750.
  • If you want one that support voice control, the R580 and R750 work with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
  • If you have carpets, you may also be interested in the Boost Intellect technology: when carpet is detected, the robot increase the suction power automatically for picking up mess, the cleaning head and two large wheels also lifted to smoothly transition from hard floor to carpets. Once off the carpet, ther suction will back to normal level. The R580, R650 and R750 have this feature.

Coredy L900 vs L900W vs L900X what’s the difference between them?

The difference between the L900 and L900W is the color scheme. The L900 has 2 color options, one is black and one is black gold. Whereas the L900W is white. Both of them can vacuum and mop, however, tbey do NOT come with the mopping kit.
The L900X comes in black or blue, it includes water tank and mopping cloth. And it comes with an Automatic Dirt Disposal Base/Charging Dock instead of a common Charging Dock. The self empty charging base is not only for charging the robot, but also can pick up dust from the robot’s dust bin, send the dust into the disposable dust bag inside the base. According to Coredy, if the robot vacuum every day, the bag can hold dust amount for up to 30 days.
Otherwise, they are similar.

iLife V8s vs A9 vs A9s vs A10s vs A10 what’s the difference?

Some of these iLife cleaning robots are dry vacuum cleaners, such as the A9, whereas some can vacuum and mop, such as the V8s and A10 mop.

iLife A9 vs A10 what’s the difference?

There are some big differences between the iLife A9 and A10 robotic floor cleaners.
The A10 is a much more “smarter” robot. It has several features that the A9 does not have.

  • Mapping
    This is one of the biggest differences.
    Both of them has mapping feature, however, the A9 can only create a real time map that shows you where it have cleaned, it does not save the map, and you cannot use the map to command the robot to do customized cleaning.
    On the other side, the A10 can not only build up a real-time map, but also save the map for further customized use, and it can map up to three floors.
  • Schedule Cleaning
    The A9 can only be scheduled to clean all the rooms per circle, whereas the A10 allows you to schedule it to clean specific rooms or area at different times as you want, such as cleaning room one at 8:00 and room two at 10:00.
  • Boundary
    The A9 comes with an ElectroWall which is a device that creates a virtual barrier whereas the A10 does not use the ElectroWall, it allows you to set up virtual barriers in the App which is more convenient.
    If you have multiple no-go areas, then you will have to buy additional ElectroWalls when using the A9.
    A10, on the other hand, gives you complete control via the App without the need of using the ElectroWall. This saves you money, time and effort.
  • Auto Boost
    The A10 allows you to circle out specific areas which needs deeper cleaning in the App. It will automatically increase suction power in these localized areas.
    Whereas the A9 does not have this feature.
  • Max Suction Power
    The A9 generates up to 1000Pa suction whereas the A10 doubles the max suction to 2000Pa to pick up debris and particles from hard floors to low-medium pile carpets.
  • Navigation
    The A9 uses gyroscope + camera navigation whereas the A10 uses gyroscope + laser navigation which enhances cleaning efficiency.
  • Function
    The A9 is a dry vacuum only, it’s not designed with a water tank. Whereas the A10 can be used with a water tank for mopping. However, the A10 does not include the water tank, if you need the mopping, you will need to buy the water tank and mopping cloth, or buy the A10 mop model.

iLife A9 vs A9s what’s the difference?
The A9s as well as A10s are models sold outside the USA.
The A9s is a bit different from the A9.
The A9s has mopping feature whereas the A9 does not.
The A9s comes with a bristle brush for carpet and a rubber brush for hard floor whereas the A9 comes with a 2-in-1 brush instead.

iLife A10 vs A10s what’s the difference?
The A10s includes the water tank and mopping cloth whereas the A10 does not. If you need the mopping feature, you should buy the A10s.

iLife V8s vs A9 what’s the difference?

  • The V8s has no main roller brush, it’s designed with floors with pet hair in mind. And it has mopping mode.
    Whereas the V9 has a main roller which does a better job on low pile carpets. However, it does not mop.
  • The A9 adds a camera to the navigation system to improve cleaning efficiency, whereas the V8s uses only gyro navigation.
  • The A9 supports WiFi and App control, it will generate a map that shows you the areas it have cleaned whereas the V8s does not.
  • The A9 comes with an ElectroWall that creates an invisible boundary while the V8s has no virtual walls available.
    The A9 can resume where it left off after automatic recharging whereas the V8s does not.

P.S.
The 2-in-1 robots can vacuum / mop, however, they cannot vacuum and mop at the same time. When vacuuming, you have to install the dust bin; when mopping, you have to install the water tank and mopping cloth. And they cannot be used to clean your carpets/rugs.

iLife Shinebot W400 vs W400S vs W450 vs W455 what’s the difference?

When we write this short article, the iLife has 4 floor washing robot models, the Shinebot W400, W400s, W450 and W455. These 4 hard floor cleaning robots can be divided into two groups.
The W400 and W400s are similar to each other whereas the W450 and W455 are similar. There are some big difference between these two groups.

  • Difference Between iLife Shinebot W400 and W400s:
    iLife W400s is an upgrade of iLife W400, its software has been upgraded when compared with W400, and it comes with a bottle of hard floor cleanser which the W400 does not include. Otherwise, they are the same.

    The iLife W455 has a silver top whereas the W450 has a black top. The W450 comes with a bottle of hard floor cleanser while the W455 does not.
    According to customer support, these two machines have similar performance, but the W455 has stronger and more efficient cleaning ability compared to W450.
    Otherwise, these two are almost the same.

Difference Between iLife Shinebot W400/W400s and W450/W455:
The two groups have some big difference. The W450/W455 are upgraded models of the W400/W400s, they are “smarter”.

  • What’s New?
    The W450/W455 are equiped with PanoView Camera that improves navigation accuracy and avoid missing areas needs cleaning.
    The W450/W455 support WiFi which allows users to control the robots via smartphone App.
    The W450/W455 have more cleaning settings to customize to fit different cleaning needs. You can control the amount of water released, the brush roller speed, the moving speed of the robots, how many times (up to 3 times) you want the robots to clean or dry the floor, and you can also draw in the app to have the robots to wash a specific area for more quick and efficient cleaning.
  • Cleaning Modes
    The W400/W400s have 4 modes: Path, Area, Spot, Edge.
    while the W450/W455 have 3 modes: Path, Area, Spot.

Similarities:

  • These robots can only be used on hard floors, such as laminate, tile, and hardwood floors; they cannot mop carpet/rugs; and they do not dry vacuum.
  • Tidalpower Cleaning System
    The robots will moisten and scrub the floor, suction up dirty water, and then scrape residues.
  • Separate Dirty/Clean Water Tank
    All of them have separate clean water tank that holds up to 0.85L and dirty water tank that have capacity of 0.9L.
  • Charging Type
    They are not self charging robots, they will not automatically go back to the charging dock to recharge when the battery is low or when the job done. So, you will have to manually take them to the charging dock for recharging.
  • Anti Collision & Anti Fall
    Just like most of the cleaning robots on the market, these iLife hard floor mopping robots feature Anti Collision sensors to stop them from crashing into obstacles & Anti Fall sensors to prevent them from falling down steps.
  • No Barrier Kits
    All of them do not include nor support magnetic strips or “virtual wall” or similar boundary kits to stop them from entering restricted areas.
