Fresh ideas: This is new at Ecovacs
- TrueMapping 2.0: In the “observation tower” on top of the device, there is a further developed laser navigation system that measures the apartment even more precisely, records furniture, door thresholds, etc. even better and does not want to leave anything out when cleaning. But there wasn’t much to complain about with the T8 either. As always, fall sensors are installed so that the vacuum cleaner does not tumble on the stairs to the ground floor.
- TrueDetect 3D 2.0: This technology wants to recognize obstacles even better and thus confidently prevent collisions with floor vases, furniture and the like. In fact, the T9 timidly and patiently worked through every corner or table leg in the test and rarely offended. The T9 did not always recognize smaller objects lying around because it lacks camera-based object recognition. With the “Aivi” version of the T8, she filmed the cleaning trip “with foresight” and saved many a sock or cell phone cord.
- More suction on the go: Ecovacs claims to have doubled the suction power of the T9. Nothing of this was noticeable in everyday life, because the T8 already left hardly any dirt and tickled a lot out of the carpet. The T9 lasts a long time (up to 2.5 hours) until it drives back to the charging station on its own. A six-hour break from cleaning is then required to recharge the empty battery.
- Ozmo Pro 2.0: The highlight of the T8 was the successful wiping mode. A water tank with a water pump and vibrating plate is attached to the rear of the vacuum cleaner. During use, the plate vibrates strongly and swings the attached mopping mat back and forth with jerks. This scrubbing function has been updated on the T9 and now wants to clean even more persistently and at the same time more quietly.
- New app views: Ecovacs has redesigned the smartphone app. It now looks tidier and more modern. The cleaning trips can be tracked, cleaning plans can be set or rooms and restricted areas can be entered in the floor plan. Furniture can now even be placed on a new 3D map – nice gimmick, nothing more. Remote access while out and about or via voice control makes more sense to send the vacuum cleaner off on demand with Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant or Apple’s Siri.
- The rolling room spray: The T9 not only declares war on dirt, but also on musty household smells. There is also an air freshener in the device, which blows subtle scents into the air when it is sucked. A nice idea that won’t revolutionize smart vacuuming. A fragrance capsule for 60 hours of wellbeing is included. It is not yet known what replenishment costs.
