What is the iRobot Braava 380t?
iRobot built its brand on the back of its robotic vacuum cleaners, so it was always just a matter of time before it took floor cleaning to the next level. The Braava 380t is the latest in the line-up of iRobot's robotic mops that are capable of sweeping or mopping your home's hard floor surfaces.
What features does the iRobot Braava 380t have?
Like the Roomba 980, iRobot has packed the Braava mop robot with its iAdapt 2.0 navigation technology so it can intelligently map your home to ensure it cleans in the most effective method.
The Braava introduces the NorthStar Navigation Cube, which bounces a signal off your ceiling to help the robot map out the room and its obstacles to help ensure the best possible clean. In order to use the Braava automatically across multiple rooms though, you will need multiple NorthStar cubes in order to map each room.
Powered by a relatively small 2,000mAh battery, the Braava can sweep floors for up to 210 minutes, covering up to 92 square metres of ground. If you pop it into mopping mode, that time drops to 150 minutes on a single charge, with a range of 32 square metres.
Of course, those numbers are for a single charge cycle, and the Braava will return to its base station to charge whenever it needs to. Once charged, it will begin mopping again until it has finished the job.
The Braava 380t uses reusable microfibre cloths in order to sweep and mop, with a triple-pass mopping action to ensure it removes those stubborn marks on your floor.
What other devices does the Braava 380t work with?
The Braava 3380t is a standalone product, designed to clean floors by itself. At this stage, it doesn't sync with iRobot's HOME app to allow for remote control of its cleaning functionality.
That said, iRobot has already committed to introducing support for Amazon Echo voice control for its Roomba vacuum cleaners, so perhaps one day we will see the same functionality worked into the Braava product line-up.
Is the iRobot Braava 380t available in Australia?
The Braava 380t is now available in Australia, and you can purchase one through Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, Betta, Myer, JB Home, Bing Lee or the iRobot Australian Store.
How much does the iRobot Roomba 980 cost?
The RRP for the Braava 380t is $599.
