Product Review: bObi Classic Robotic Vacuum Cleaner from bObsweep

Have you met bObi?  That is, bObi the robotic vacuum cleaner. Let me introduce you to my new bObi robotic vacuum cleaner from bObsweep and tell you about this amazing cleaning tool that every house should have. This product is going to save me so much time and energy that I am doing the happy dance.

I had the pleasure of reviewing this amazing little gadget recently. You will see in the short video demonstration below how this product will vacuum your entire house all by itself without you having to lift a finger. It also has the capability to pick up a small liquid spill.

I received for review the “Classic” model. There are two models available for purchase, the bObi Classic and the bObi Pet. You can view more information on both of these models at the bObsweep website, but the basic difference is that the “Pet” model has stronger suction, more forceful brush contact, and increased battery life.

With 5-in-1 cleaning power, bObi hits the floor with everything she’s got. Her heavy-duty vacuum extracts dirt and dust while her trio of brushes reel in larger bits and scraps; attach her mop and bObi finishes with a shine. To go the extra mile, bObi’s UV light kills floor bacteria while her built-in HEPA filter traps harmful airborne particles.


Come home to spotless floors every day, any time; just program bObi’s cleaning schedule on her remote and she self-starts on the day/time you program her to do so.

bObi automatically knows when to go back to her charging station to “juice up” when she’s low on energy.

bObi’s cleaning functions are located on the top of the unit with three touchscreen buttons. The GO button activates advanced movement algorithms to cover the most ground. bObi cruises across rooms, trails along walls and edges, and extends her diameter until all debris is done and dusted. The WAFFLE button targets a small spill area. bObi traces a grid pattern on the spill zone to treat it with special attention. The JUICE button locates the charging station and auto-recharges. bObi finds her charging station and plugs herself in for a drink of battery juice. bObi knows to fuel up when her energy level hits 15%.

bObi travels along the perimeter of your room, flinging pesky dust bunnies out of the baseboards and into her dustbin. Dusty floors, high-traffic areas, and small spills ping bObi’s highly sensitive dirt sensors. With over 80 sensors, bObi detects walls, edges, platforms, and other obstacles in its cleaning path.

bObi slides under beds, couches, and coffee tables with ease.  This is my favorite feature – no more having to take the entire bed apart to get under the box spring and clean.

bObi fully complies with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive: every single one of her parts is absolutely free of hazardous materials that other robotic vacuums may contain, such as lead, mercury, and cadmium.

bObi will run for approximately 60 to 90 minutes on one charge.  It takes approximately 4 to 5 hours to recharge the unit after the initial 12 hour charge when you first take your bObi out of the box.

It is recommended that you empty bObi’s bin after one or two cleaning jobs but this mainly depends on the volume of cleaning that she does. The good news is you can wash bObi’s bin under running water! Simply detach the vacuum motor and the dustbin is ready to wash!

The owner’s manual is very easy to understand. Some of these manuals require a law degree to get through them, but I found this one very easy to read. I have horrible adult ADD and this manual includes lots of photos which make it extremely easy to understand for someone like myself who is a “visual” learner.  Additional instruction information can be found at the bObsweep website.

WARRANTY:  bObi Classic’s 1-year warranty covers damages sustained in the manufacturing process, shipping process, or during bObi’s normal use. This warranty does not cover her consumable parts, such as her brushes, filters, and batteries. It also does not cover damages sustained while using third-party parts or accessories not directly sold by bObsweep. Don’t worry — even after bObi’s warranty is over, bObsweep will continue to share her repair costs with you, regardless of the reason for the damage. For a full 5 years after you have purchased bObi, they will subsidize 25 – 50% of her repair costs.

bObi is available in three color choices (white, red and silver) and can be purchased at Amazon, Walmart and other retail outlets, but I think I have found the best price for you below.

Bottom line? I love the bObi and you will, too. This amazing cleaning tool will save you so much time and keep your home spotless. Treat yourself to a bObi Classic or bObi Pet by bObsweep!

  1. These little battery powered robot vacuum cleaners are so neat! I loved the video, it was nice seeing how it operated. I could sure use a couple of these in my house. Thanks for the review!!

  2. Did you try it on hard wood floors instead of carpet? Just wondering how well it will pick up cat hair on the wood floor.
