Infinuvo Cleanmate QQ-2 reviewOverview

It’s normal for any brand to upgrade their models, especially if they actually work in the market. These upgrades will contain a few but significant changes their consumers would like to see. They may also address certain issues. This is how we can explain the different versions of QQ2 today. While some manufacturers would first discontinue their old model in lieu of the new one, the basic QQ2 is still actively produced along with QQ2 LT and QQ2 Plus. The first QQ2 is considered to be one of the cheapest robots. Needless to say, it lacks a couple of features such as an onboard scheduler, which you can already find in the newer QQ2. The LT, meanwhile, is different from the rest because of its LCD display.

Detailed Review
It’s not that fast to buy a Cleanmate QQ2. You have to be very specific. A lot of changes have already been applied on the model there are already basic, QQ2LT, and QQ2 Plus. Nevertheless, despite their differences, they still share commonalities such as their manner of cleaning.

There are 5 pre-programmed cleaning options you can choose from. Your selection will depend on a number of factors, such as the type of floor, space area, and particles that have to be cleaned. Regardless the QQ2 vacuum cleaner follows a methodical cleaning process. First it sweeps the floor, making sure it lifts the dirt. Second, it suctions or absorbs the dust. Then the last step is it sanitizes the floor. It’s able to achieve this through a UV light. All units don’t have filters. Instead, the UV tube will kill off any bacteria that linger in the dust or other forms of allergens. So far, it kills around 98 percent of the common household bacteria.

As with navigation, it doesn’t have any more innovative technologies such as NorthStar (found in Mint). Instead, there are sensors such as sensitive bump and stair detection. Though the latter works perfectly, there’s no guarantee the robot wouldn’t grind itself or bump into legs and other objects along the way. The good thing is the bump softens the impact, thereby protecting the sensitive components.

The basic doesn’t have a number of great features such as the onboard scheduler. This should have come in handy when you don’t have to manually set up the cleaner or you want the robot to clean even if you’re not around. The onboard scheduler is integrated only in QQ2 LT. This one also has the LCD display, which allows you to instantly see and read alerts.

Don’t worry, though, as the basic already introduces the self-charging dock. This means the robot automatically charges itself in between cleaning. It also instantaneously shuts off when not in use.

User Comments

The little guy works well, and he has the germ killer thing which most don’t have. Very good value for the price.

Love this vacuum! I’ve got two of them and a Rumba. I’m going to by my mom one for Christmas! Works great!

Users like that the Infinuvo CleanMate QQ-2 doesn’t take long to charge and cleans for more than an hour on a full charge, as well as the fact that it easily maneuvers around furniture and corners. It has a home base for charging but seems to have a hard time finding it, and some users say it doesn’t transition well between floor types.
