PROS
  • 1. It is great for cleaning light to medium stains on your tiles/hardwood floors, as well as dusting
  • 2. It is simple, small and the operation is easy
  • 3. Battery life is great
  • 4. Super quiet in the dry mode, a little more noisy in the Damp mode (due to vibrating cleaning head), and a little more noisy in the Wet Mop mode (still relatively quiet)

  • 6. Cleans well with single use and washable pads
CONS
  • 1. Not able to get rid of deeply embedded stains
  • 2. No charging base for it to return to when the battery is low, so it just gives up and dies
  • 3. No cleaning solution reservoir - water only
  • 4. Tries to climb on thin/low profile rugs and gets stuck as a result
  • 5. There are some flaws in movement algorithm - it does not cover all the regions and the edges

    iRobot Braava Jet 240My latest foray into the robotic floor-mopping sphere is the lowly little Braava Jet 240 which was released back in March. I waited a while to buy this one, mainly because I already had several working Scoobas I’ve bought over the years that still work like a charm, and I thought I had no need for any more robots. More recently, I tested the Braava series 320, with the water reservoir add-on and a few extra reusable pads. My experience with the 320 was somewhat lacking to say the least. Though I really wanted to love it, problems kept popping up much too often on the 320. Navigation issues would lead to frequent coverage issues, and the Northstar cube just refused to connect 3/4 of the time, no matter what I tried. The older scooba 230 is on its second battery and is beginning to die early, and the 390 doesn’t really like the new thresholds and vents at my new house since I moved and has since become a real pain to use with 100% success.Enter the Braava Jet 240. I first saw this robot when it was released and decided this was one I would sit out. To me, it just seemed much too small to have any effect on dirt… just looking at that that tiny pad it uses. What could that possibly do? When I bough this little guy I was really tossing the dice, hoping it would make up for some of the shortfalls of the other floor washing robots I’ve used. And it did not disappoint.The Jet has a few tricks up its sleeves designed to make life a little easier. Like smarter, cube-free navigation, to the best suspension I’ve seen in any iRobot so far. It also has 3 cleaning modes for use in different situations, with a dry sweeping mode and a water squirting feature that is much more effective than the 320’s wet pad and reservoir (which dried up all the time before the reservoir was even empty) All these features made me really wish I had this model over the 320. So I got on Amazon and ordered one.The box it came in is gorgeous. iRobot has really nailed the unboxing experience here, with their sharp, eye-popping colour graphics and perfect placement of everything in the box, you get the feeling that you’re getting quality. From the instruction booklet to the charger, everything has its place, everything wrapped in perfectly-formed cellophane and surrounded by cardboard cutouts to keep everything tight for shipping. Lifting the cardboard away, we find the shiny white plastic-clad ‘bot accompanied by a lithium battery, wall charger, and samples of all 3 types of pads. Picking the robot up for the first time revealed a hefty, solid-feeling product with a very premium feel for the price. I suspect heavy weights are placed inside for balance. The bot itself is beautifully designed. Nothing is left wanting. I was still leery about the puny pad size, but we’ll soon see if they do the job.I wasted no time and got the battery charging right away. I was happy that it only took a couple hours to get the green light so I could get this thing going. I loved that the battery just pops in by pressing it into the robot, no need for alignment or orientation, it just pops in. Some extra batteries would be nice, but I couldn’t find any at this time. The iRobot website claims that replacement batteries are coming, though when is anyone’s guess. It would add so much convenience to keep working longer with pre-charged batteries, which is a huge advantage over the Scooba 230, which took 7 hours to charge and had to charge on-board.Using the Jet 240 is just stupid-simple and hassle-free compared to past Scoobas. They just couldn’t have made it easier. Simply choose a space roughly 200sf that you want cleaned, place the appropriate cleaning pad on the robot, set the robot on the floor in the bottom left of the area chosen and press Clean. Depending on the pad installed, the robot will read it and adjust its operation for that specific cleaning mode. In wet modes, the whole cleaning head actually vibrates, increasing scrubbing effectiveness. Gone are the days of measuring cleaning solution, cleaning half a dozen dirty robot parts and rescuing the robot from those dreaded vents and thresholds. This unit just works and works wonderfully. What they don’t tell you though, is that these floor cleaning robots work best when you start with a thoroughly hand-washed floor, and periodically run your iRobots to maintain the clean. When I tried the Braava Jet on the dirty kitchen floor it left the entire floor cloudy and when I ran the Scooba afterward, the dirty water was filthy. So this robot won’t clean up heavily soiled floors, and it’s necessary to run a Scooba once a week to do the deep cleaning.After the 200sf was finished, you can set it for another 200sf by creating a virtual wall by holding the Clean button, you can prevent the robot from going back to the area it has already cleaned, and in this way you can cover more and more space with each battery charge. There is no need to expect this robot to clean an entire 800sf area at once, as its cleaning performance does suffer at that square footage, leaving streaks. A quick rinse of the pad between runs and streaks are kept to a minimum, if any at all.What I dislike about this unit is the rare occasion it does get stuck, it completely aborts the mission, and you must restart from scratch. Elation quickly turned to frustration as I watched the bot hang up on the corner of the nastiest vent in the house, only to call it quits. There’s a narrow passage beside my bathroom vanity which Braava entered but couldn’t escape. The Scooba 230 navigates this area with ease. I was disappointed with the lack of grout-cleaning performance on the bathroom tiles. Neither the reusable washing pad or the disposable washing pad were able to reach into the grout lines at all.I really liked the tough build and high-quality feel of the bot in my hand, the rubber wheels feel nice and grippy, the suspension is incredibly well-designed, and I liked the reusable blue wet pad, with what feels like bristles embedded in the microfibre for more effective scrubbing.I’ve always recommended the Scooba line of robots over the years but this robot solves a lot of the frustrations involved with using those older models. The absurd simplicity and the sensible price make the Braava Jet 240 easy to recommend for anyone looking for their ticket out of one of the worst chores. If you’re thinking about buying one, don’t hesitate… go for it! It’s a great little helper to have around and won’t break the bank.If you found this review helpful please let me know by clicking “Yes” below! I’ll be happy to answer any questions in the comments!

    I have a small house, 2BR, 1 BA, all hardwood or tile throughout. It’s just me and my 2 indoor dogs (German shepherd mix and a short haired little mix). I purchased this and a roomba to help me keep the house in order bc I work 2 jobs.Essentially it is an automatic swifter and wet jet and it has been the biggest help to my routine. I’m not an overly anal ocd type and if you are you probably won’t like it. I put it in one room and when I come back, the room is clean. If it misses a spot (which happens sometimes) I just pick it up and let it start at that spot.If you’re ocd and you watch the thing do its job you’ll be like “why is he going over there? Will he come back to this and that and…”. Just let it go and let it clean :)It sweeps the dog hair up perfectly, sometimes I’ll let the roomba go first and let the braava go behind it and get left over dirt before mopping.It works about 2 hours then needs recharged. Again my house is smaller…if you have a large house the bigger model might be something you need to look at and compare options for.This one was perfect for me and all the muddy little paws in my house and I couldn’t have been more grateful for this little invention.Enjoy!!!

    Ok, this has been a fun mission, to say the least. I have been on a journey to find the best robot vacuum they make and I think I’m making headway. So far I have tried The Shark 720, Ecovacs N79S, iLife V5, iRobot Jet 240.iRobot Jet 240Noise Level: pretty quiteFunctionality: Cleaned on a mission but does not do what I felt it shouldCleaning Duration: cleaned for 100 minutesEmptying Convenience: the process was fine but it will never outdo a regular mop. Cleans a quarter of the floor and then is empty. Felt like I had to babysit the thing all the time.Mop future is uselessWould not recommend to anyone.OverpricedThe iLife V5-Noise Level: 3rd loudestFunctionality: TERRIBLECleaning Duration: cleaned for almost 100 minutesEmptying Convenience: TERRIBLENot worth it at all, had it for 1 hour and sent it backThe Ecovac N79S-Noise Level: This was a tad bit louder than the shark, but not by muchFunctionality: cleaned well but with no kind of plan, just zigzagged here and there, picked up more than the shark.Cleaning Duration: cleaned for almost 2 hoursEmptying Convenience: easy to empty had a back-end tray that slid out easily.Amazing Value for the cost – may end up with this oneThe iClebo Omega-Noise Level: is the loudest so far, sounds like you are using a regular vacuum cleaner for 80 minutes, that’s because of the amount of pick up power this has.Functionality: Cleaned on a mission and was very strong, great mapping technology, picks up the bigger stuff more than all of the bots so far.Cleaning Duration: cleaned for 80 minutesEmptying Convenience: personally, I do not like the design in this one, tray stores in the top of the robot tray seems a lot small than all of the rest of them.Mop future is uselessOverpriced – Sending back for its little brotherThe Shark 720-Noise Level: This was the quietest so farFunctionality: cleaned well but with no kind of plan, just zigzagged here and there. Did not fin under the couch as good as the Ecovac.Cleaning Duration: cleaned for almost 2 hoursEmptying Convenience: easy to empty had a back-end tray that slid out easily.Great Value

    Es la primera vez que compro un producto iRobot, no sabia muy bien que esperar. pero el precio me pareció muy adecuado así que la adquirí y estoy bastante satisfecho con la compra, estos son los puntos que me gustaría compartir.1- LIMPIEZAQuede sorprendido por lo bien que limpia, en realidad es un sistema sencillo, dado que el robot avienta agua, pasa su paño. regresa y vuelve a pasar sobre el mismo lugar, en realidad es sencillo pero los paños que usa tienen una especie de textura rugosa que ayuda a quitar las manchas del piso y que al finalizar su ciclo que quede bastante bien, se pueden usar 3 tipos distintos de paños, el azul que es el que mas avienta agua y pasa 3 veces sobre el mismo lugar primero hacia la izquierda, regresa luego derecha y por ultimo el centro (creo que este es el ideal y el que mejor limpia), después son los naranjas donde no es tanta agua solo pasa una vez, es un ciclo mas rápido, por ultimo el paño blanco que es en seco se podría decir que es el ideal para pisos laminados donde lo ideal es usar poca agua o no usar agua, es como el equivalente a aspirar, pero si esta muy sucio el piso y al no ser húmedo no retiene tanto la suciedad y termina por solo cambiar la suciedad de un lado a otro.2. SISTEMA INTELIGENTE – MAPEOEsto es lo que mas me sorprendió el como va analizando por donde va pasando de tal manera que no queda ni un solo espacio sin limpiar, ni el mas pequeño. hay un espacio junto a mi televisión que es prácticamente del tamaño del robot y que en la primera pasada no pudo entrar y lo vi normal dije realmente esta difícil que pueda entrar ahí, pero para mi sorpresa en la segunda pasada llegó entro directamente a ese espacio, limpio y salio de ahí, y aquí es donde viene lo interesante, el robot hace una primera pasada torpe prácticamente chocando con todo, pero aprende, hace el mapeo de la superficie y luego regresa a limpiar exactamente esa misma superficie que ya limpio pero esta vez rodeando con gran precisión los lugares por los que no había podido entrar o lugares que eran de difícil acceso como debajo de las sillas del comedor, o lo mejor, DEBAJO DE LA CAMA eso fue una grata sorpresa nunca me doy tiempo para trapear debajo de la cama o debajo del sillón, y este robot lo hace perfecto entra limpia y se va, todo perfecto, en verdad que no deja lugares sin limpiar.3. FUNCIONES SMART – CONEXION CON EL CELULAREl robot Braava Jet tiene conectividad bluetooth pero sus funciones son prácticamente inútiles, no puedes encender el Braava si esta apagada, no puedes iniciar el ciclo de limpieza a distancia, no tiene wifi, no hay manera de automatizar, no hay conexión con IFTTT, lo unico para lo que sirve la aplicación del celular es para ver si no se ha atascado (que no me ha pasado hasta el momento), ver el nivel de batería, ver que tipo de limpieza lleva (dependiendo del tipo de paño insertado automáticamente reconoce que tipo de limpieza tiene que realizar y eso se puede ver desde la aplicación), y por ultimo se puede detener el cliclo, o iniciarlo, pero siempre y cuando hayas encendido manualmente el Braava, cosa que es un poco absurda.4- COSTO DE USO – REFACCIONES Y PAÑOSLos paños son un poco caros, estamos hablando de un costo entre $170.00 y $200.00 por el paquete de 10 paños, es decir casi $20.00 por uso, esto de momento me pareció muy elevado y pensaba en adquirir el paquete con paños lavables, también a la venta aquí en Amazon los cuales usas, los pones en la lavadora y listos para usar, pero aquí viene lo interesante los paños lavables dado que se lavan no tienen ningún detergente, es decir trapeas solo con agua, a diferencia de los desechables que traen ya un detergente impregnado en el paño que ayuda a la limpieza, que es un aroma muy sutil pero agradable.Aun no he probado los que son lavables pero haciendo un calculo rápido y considerando que los desechables tienen detergente, el Braava lo uso 1 vez por semana y si el paquete de desechables trae 10 repuestos, este paquete me dura 2 meses y medio, viéndolo de esta manera creo que no es tanto el gasto con los desechables, claro todo esto depende de cada persona, el tipo de casa. si hay o no hay animales, ya que hay casas que requieren trapear casi hasta 4 veces por semana pero para mi departamento pequeño donde casi no se ensucia y no hay mascotas pues el uso de una vez por semana es adecuado.CONCLUSIONESA FAVOR-Excelente limpieza-Muy buen sistema de mateo y navegación por la casa-facilidad de usoEN CONTRA- Repuestos algo caros- Funciones inteligentes y wifi nulos- Se raya muy fácil al chocar con todoEn general lo recomiendo mucho, no es un producto caro para lo bien que funciona.

     It was great for the first two or three weeks. Ocansionly used two or three times a week. Just used about a month, it starts not to work correctly. Contact customer service over the phone for more than an hour, and they did not solve the problem. They said they would call back the next day, and it’s been five days haven’t got any phone call from iRobot service.
