The new Roborock H7 cordless vacuum follows the company’s more recent release – the Roborock H6 Adapt. While the H6 Adapt is an impressive vacuum cleaner that handles every challenge I throw at it with ease, the H7 is just as impressive and brings several upgrades to the table in addition to a dust bag.
The dust bag allows the Roborock H7 to contain dirt and dust without leaving it in the air. It also makes for neat disposal and easy cleaning of the vacuum. Following are our impressions after spending some time with the Roborock H7 Cordless Vacuum.
Like the Roborock H6 Adapt, the H7 comes with a full range of accessories and cleaning tools to help you get to any nook and cranny of your home. The H7 includes a batten, crevice tool, dusting brush, flex tube, motorized mini-brush, multisurface brush, and a dust bag holder.
Almost all of these devices fit neatly into the dock, which allows for compact, out-of-the-way storage of the vacuum when not in use. The dock charges the H7 while it’s mounted, so you can pick it up and use it whenever you need to. As an added bonus, almost all accessories are magnetized as well. You can dock them as easily as you can to the side of the fridge or washing machine.
Thanks to all of these accessories, the H7 was easy to transition from vacuuming up the flour splatter in the kitchen to cleaning the stairs. The crevice tool allowed me to vacuum up the mess from the bottom corners of the shelves where my robot mop failed to clean.
By itself, the Roborock H7 is a powerful vacuum cleaner, but the inclusion of these accessories makes it easy to use in any context—even cleaning a car.
Like the H6 Adapt, the Roborock H7 has multiple cleaning modes powered by a powerful motor. The 480 watt motor produces a tremendous amount of suction. There are three basic modes: Echo, Standard, or Max. The LED readout on the handle tells you what mode you’re in, as well as how much battery life is left.
Eco mode is the most power-friendly but also the weakest of the three cleaning modes and is ideal for most day-to-day vacuuming jobs.
Standard mode is more powerful, but at the expense of the battery. Max Mode is the most powerful option, but it’s by far the fastest. Its suction is almost enough to pull the paint off the car, but if your carpet is clogged with dirt and dust, Max Mode will flush it out.
You don’t even have to keep the trigger depressed. A small button on the side of the handle will activate Sustain Mode, which means the vacuum will continue to operate without pulling the trigger. This saves your hand a little strain during those long cleaning sessions. To deactivate it simply press the Sustain button once again.
The Roborock H7 delivers about 90 minutes of cleanup on a single charge when in Eco mode. If you still haven’t, don’t worry—it only takes about 2.5 hours to fully recharge, a definite improvement over the four hours required by the H6 Adapt.
Roborock has put a lot of effort into improving air quality with its vacuum design, and the H7 is no exception. A HEPA filter removes particles from the air while you clean and stores them in a leakproof trash can. The filter is designed to capture particles as small as 0.3 microns.
The design of the vacuum means that no particles will escape through the cracks in the vacuum into the air around you. However, if you want to take an extra step to improve your air quality, the Roborock H7 includes easy-to-follow instructions for setting up the dust bag.
My cat sheds a lot, but the Roborock H7 picked up more pet hair than the H6 Adapt.
This bag captures the particles and allows for easy disposal. Simply remove the bag and throw it in the trash. The Roborock H7 includes two disposable dust bags, but replacement bags can be purchased.
After a few cycles, you may notice that dust has settled inside the front and rear filters, inside the cyclone, and in the dustbin. All these parts are removable and washable in standard water. Simply run them under running water until they’re completely clean, and then let them dry completely for 24 hours before reassembling.
The Roborock H7 Stick brings small but necessary improvements to the Roborock lineup of vacuums. While it doesn’t reinvent the wheel, faster charging times, optional dust bag accessories, and better suction make it a solid buy for anyone.
Where the H7 really shines, at least in my experience, was in cleaning up pet hair. My cat sheds a lot, but the Roborock H7 picked up more pet hair than the H6 Adapt. While the price point has risen to $500, the faster charging time reduces the need for an extra battery for extended vacuuming jobs, making it well worth the extra cost.
How long will it last?
With proper care, the Roborock H7 will last for many years. The hard plastic gives it a lighter weight than the competition, but that doesn’t mean it’s vulnerable to damage. Just keep it out of direct sunlight and the vacuum should last for years. Should something go wrong, Roborock offers a one year warranty.
Is there a better option?
The $500 price point can be a bit prohibitive for anyone’s budget. If you want to cut costs,There is a great option that is both a cordless vacuum and a handheld all-in-one. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a top-class vacuum and cost isn’t a deterrent, then There is a great option that will clean your floors thoroughly.
should you buy it?
Yes. Roborock has proven its dedication to continual improvement and quality, and Roborock H7 This is the best cordless vacuum the company has to offer at the moment.
