As handy as robovacs are, they can also be pretty expensive — most cost hundreds of dollars, and some of the more luxe models can even creep into the thousands. However, you don’t have to empty out your savings account to get your hands on a great model — in fact, we found one that’s on sale at Amazon for a jaw-dropping $102.
Don’t let the price fool you either — the SereneLife Robot Automatic Vacuum Cleaner packs a ton of power. It runs for 90 minutes on a speedy four-hour charge, plus bumper sensors ensure it doesn’t take a tumble or crash into a table leg. It’s super easy to operate too: Just press one button, and it’s off to tidy up your home.
It’s a snap to clean (dare we say a joy?), thanks to a bagless design, and because it’s so low profile, it can fit anywhere, like under your bed or behind the couch.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Amazon shoppers are smitten. The biggest praise comes from pet owners, many of whom are forced to sweep and vacuum every day just to keep up with the endless shedding. And Amazon shoppers say it's great for first-time robot vacuum users.
"This is the best starter robovac for the price. I really like the fact it's very simple to use with just one button. Works great on my hardwood flooring," wrote a savvy shopper. "Clearing the dust from the top is great so I don't have to keep flipping the vacuum to get it out. Battery life is great, it goes for hours without any issue..."
"This vacuum works very well for the money. I've had it running almost non-stop the past two days," another shopper noted. "...Startup is easy — all you have to do is attach the brushes. It does come with a set of replacement brushes and filter plus the replacement filters are very cheap to buy. This is a great deal so far. Can't really complain about anything.
In short, it’s an incredible sidekick for tough jobs — especially that it's only $102.
"...After charging it up, I simply turned it on and let it go; it works great," added another five-star reviewer. "Does just what you'd want a robot vacuum to do. It is much less noisy than my regular vacuum and cleans our hardwood floors even better than I would have hoped. It went from the various floors in my kitchen and dining room flawlessly and didn't get hung up as it transitioned from one to the other. It went under the china cabinet, no problem. Pretty impressive little gadget..."
