Ecovacs's Deebot T9 piles on vacuuming, mopping, and an air freshener into one robot sucker

Ecovacs's Deebot T9 piles on vacuuming, mopping, and an air freshener into one robot sucker

Robot vacuums these days don't just suck up dirt anymore. Chinese home appliance company Ecovacs Robotics think so too, which is why they launched the new Ecovacs Deebot T9.

The Deebot T9 is a robot vacuum that not only acts as an autonomous vacuum cleaner - it also provides mopping capabilities. The mopping mechanism is an upgrade from their existing mopping tech, and it requires disposable mopping pads that are made to absorb water and dust.

Perhaps what's unusual about Deebot T9 is its built-in mobile air freshener that activates while it mops or vacuums. The robot releases the fragrances directly onto the floor, while a built-in fan diffuses the scent more evenly across the ground. Ecovacs said that Deebot T9's air freshener requires replaceable capsules, and each pod lasts up to 60 days before requiring a change. There are three types of fragrances available for this little robot helper.

Besides its mopping, vacuuming, and air freshening capabilities, the Deebot T9 is a smart robot vacuum at heart. Its makers packed in nine features to make the vacuum smarter and wiser at avoiding obstacles. Deebot T9 also works with an app where users can toggle the air freshener option and cleaning routines. You can also add a separately-sold Auto Empty Station to make the Deebot T9 clear its contents without doing it yourself too.

If you want a version that comes without an air freshener, Ecovacs also has the Deebot N8 Pro. Though, the N8 Pro uses slightly older mapping technology for obstacle avoidance. The Deebot N8 Pro also offers simultaneous mopping and vacuuming with its built-in water tank. It's also compatible with the Auto Empty Station add-on.
