iRobot scooba 230 and iRobot Roomba 581

The new iRobot Scooba 230, last seen at the Consumer Electronics Show (CEs) 2011 is a hard floor and carpet cleaner (pictured above)  This small, light and easy to use cleaning device is ideal for cleaning the jobs you really don’t want to, like bathrooms and behind the toilet.

The iRobot has a battery life of around 2-3 20min cycles – one thing that could use a improvement as it does take around 8 hours to fully charge again. With two separate containers, one for clean and the other for dirty water, making it easy to refill and empty without fuss.

weighing in at only 3 pounds, just 3.5 inches high and 6.5 inches in diameter it really is a small cute alternative to a mop and bucket but only half as effective.

Many reviews have pros and cons to the new scooba robot, some saying it’s  really for moderate cleaning and not to expect a sparkling surface. bottom line iRobot’s Scooba 230 floor-cleaning robot can handle reasonably dirty floors, and access tight spaces, but it’s easily bested by heavy traffic areas, and it needs a longer-lasting battery.

The new iRobot Roomba 581 (pictured above) is a small vacuum that cleans carpets and hard floors. This robot can clean 4 rooms before needing another charge and also avoids stairs and drops! Roomba comes with a wireless command center you can tell it to vacuum when its most convenient for you. Roomba also comes with two light houses to direct the robot and keep it in one room. Aswell as a home dock which Roomba will automatically go to when finnished or running low on battery!
