SwitchBot has announced the launch of its latest product, the SwitchBot Mini Robot Vacuum K10+ (K10+). The pint-sized vacuum first debuted on the Japanese crowdfunding platform Makuake earlier this year, where it quickly became a top-selling robot vacuum.
A Mini Vacuum with Max Cleaning Power
At half the size of traditional robot vacuums, the K10+ stands out for its compact yet powerful cleaning abilities. Its small stature allows it to easily navigate into hard-to-reach spots like under furniture and in corners. SwitchBot claims the K10+ can cover up to 90% more area compared to standard robot vacuums.
The K10+ comes equipped with advanced navigation technology using SLAM mapping. This allows the vacuum to methodically chart cleaning routes and ensure full coverage of rooms.
SwitchBot designed the K10+ using their proprietary SilenTechTM technology to significantly reduce operational noise. At less than 50dB, the K10+ runs 50% quieter than the average robot vac, making it ideal for peaceful home environments.
Large Dust Bin for Extended Cleaning
The K10+ automatically empties its dust bin into the base station after finishing a cleaning cycle. The large 4L dust bag only needs replacing every 70 days on average.
SwitchBot also developed a smart auto-empty feature that listens for ambient noise. If no one is home, the base station will automatically empty the dust bin during the day to prevent noise disturbances.
Integrated Mopping Function
Along with vacuuming, the K10+ can also mop hard floors using disposable cleaning pads. The mop pads attach to the bottom and can be easily swapped out when dirty. This provides a freshly sanitized mop during every cleaning session.
The K10+ comes fully loaded with high-end features you’d expect from a premium robot vacuum:
- Adjustable suction power with four levels to handle any mess.
- Rubber-bristle combo brush that cleans deep into crevices.
- Cliff detection sensors to avoid falls down stairs.
- Child lock functionality for safety.
- Up to 120 sqm of cleaning per charge.
- Scheduling options and remote start cleaning via app.
- Automatic recharging and resumption of incomplete cleaning cycles.
- Integration with voice assistants like Amazon Alexa.
The SwitchBot K10+ retails for $499 in the US, but the company is offering an exclusive 20% discount for the launch period until November 27th. This brings the price down to $399 for a limited time.
The K10+ is available on SwitchBot’s website and Amazon store in the US, UK, and Europe. Links are provided below:
