Ecovacs launches the new Deebot U2 robot vacuum for less than $400


Ecovacs Robotics has launched a new robot vacuum – the Deebot U2 – which offers powerful suction for carpets as well as mopping for your hard floors and all for less than $400.

Available from February 4, the Deebot U2 is an affordable new entry-level option which joins the advanced Ecovacs range.

“We are continuously striving to help Australian families free up time from cumbersome chores so that they can focus on more enjoyable things during their rare downtime,” says Karen Powell, Head of Australia and New Zealand for Ecovacs Robotics.

“Having a reliable, cost effective robotic vacuum solution such as the Deebot U2 is an important way to both make our technology as accessible as possible, as well as hopefully encouraging some Australian consumers to move to a robotic vacuum cleaner for the first time.”

The Deebot U2 features the Ecovacs leading dual mopping and vacuuming technology and combines a 400ml dustbin with a 300ml water reservoir so it can vacuum and mop an entire home in a single sweep.

It’s easy to switch between vacuuming and mopping with the installation of a cleaning cloth plate.

The electronically controlled water pump consistently draws water from the reservoir to offer a superior and safe mopping performance.

The Deebot U2 has standard mode for regular cleaning and Max+ mode for intense deep cleaning that boosts suction power 2.5 times to take care of the toughest cleaning challenges.

The Deebot U2 user Smart Move navigation technology to find the most efficient cleaning path in your home.

It has anti-collision sensors and soft cushion bumpers to protect your furniture and skirting boards.

The Ecovacs app gives users complete control to set cleaning modes and also check on the progress of the clean from anywhere.

The Deebot U2 also has a run time of 110 minutes before it automatically goes back to the dock to recharge.

The Deebot U2 is available from February 4 and will be priced at $399 at Bunnings and JB Hi-Fi at launch with Godfreys and The Good Guys to follow.
