Crazy tech

oldHusker

This thing can CLEAN - specifically on the smaller side of things. I was also able to get spots that haven't been cleaned in a while, and the laser attachment showed me there were a lot of those places. I was pretty horrified by what the display was showing but happy to know it's taken care of now. I was hesitant about battery life, but the machine is 'smart' enough to get a lot done. Also, the battery itself is detachable and able to be charged on its own. Certain attachments swap the 'medium' power mode to an 'auto' mode that will use the proper suction for what is being cleaned, and turn up the power for dirty areas. The 'boost' mode can drain the battery pretty quickly, but 'eco' mode will cover my 5-room townhouse no problem. I prefer the 'auto' modes to save power, but also for peace of mind. It appeared accurate and turned on heavy duty mode for places I had not expected but made sense.
