Although there are others in the market such as the Ilife V5 Pro and the new Ilife A4, which is special for carpets since it has a roller, although I would not buy it if we do not have them since it can be a nuisance to have to clean your brush every some time. Anyway I leave links the final and a discount coupon for the new A4.
This model (V5) does not bring advanced features such as the V7, which we can control with our smartphone and whose battery capacity and autonomy are greater. But it has a good point, its price, from less than €100 in most Chinese stores. As always we recommend totally legit shops at the end of the article and we always look for the best price.
The Chuwi Ilife V5 is a cheap vacuum cleaner robot apparently like any other. We could say that it is more basic than others in the market, although in any case it exceeds all that is expected of it: to clean the floor of the house automatically and without forcing ourselves to make efforts . There are several versions, but we recommend the international one so that you do not have problems with the language. Let’s analyze all its characteristics.
When buying it in other places we should check if you send us the international version , since there is a version for Asian consumers that comes in Chinese, so both the instruction manual and the remote control will come in this language.
As we have said before, the Chuwi Ilife V5 has 15 sensors to try to crash as little as possible with our furniture, walls, doors, etc. 10 of them are in the rubber bumper that surrounds the vacuum cleaner.
When the sensors do not recognize an obstacle, the robot vacuum cleaner will hit it, but thanks to its side bumper that has pressure sensors, it will automatically turn around and route its course to another part.
An infrared sensor helps the vacuum cleaner to reach the charging base. If for some reason, the Chuwi Ilife V5 is stuck, under a sofa or in an enclosed room, you will never find such a base. Anyway, the vacuum cleaner has an on / off button to stop it anywhere in our house. We remind you that the Chuwi Ilife V5 does not work like many Roomba, that they return to the base when they finish the work, this is the opposite when it is running out of battery.
In the lower part we will also find anti-fall sensors (3), so that our robot does not go down the stairs and a couple of them that must be to recognize the terrain.
* It is advisable to wipe the lower sensors with a cloth, since they are the ones that have the most contact with dirt, and can fail if there is a lot of dust accumulation.
The base of load fulfills its function, bring healthy and safe our vacuum cleaner and put the batteries. Of course, we must place it against a wall, because the lower grip is not very safe, and when the Chuwi arrives at it can move or throw it.
