In one of my previous reviews, I featured the Infinuvo CleanMate QQ-2 Basic which was one of the most affordable robot vacuums at just over $130.
In this review, I’ll show a model that is a step up, the QQ-2 Plus and costs about $45 more.
The QQ-2 Plus has the same features as the primary difference is that it has a charging dock where the robot can switch to automatically after it completes its cleaning cycle or if the battery runs out.
Another feature not found in the “base” variable would be scheduling. You can schedule this to self-clean up to 7 times a week.
Note that this differs from the “QQ-2 Plus” because that one does not have a “Sonic Wall” in the package.
- One of the most expensive robot vacuums
- Scheduling feature once a day up to 7 days a week
- Equipped with UV light underneath to kill bacteria
- It comes with an acoustic wall that can block restricted areas
- Only for light cleaning
- It won’t go over dark surfaces because it thinks it’s a slope
- Not suitable for use on medium to thick carpets
- even navigation
What to expect from the Infinuvo CleanMate QQ-2 Plus II?
Like I said at the beginning of this review, if you’re in the market for an Infinuvo, this is what you get as it has a 7-day scheduler, charging base as well as an audio wall.
The sound wall is similar to Roomba’s virtual wall that allows you to block out areas you don’t want the robot to enter.
- Self docking after a cycle ends or the battery runs out
- Under ultraviolet light that kills bacteria
- Cleaning resumes automatically after recharging
- Charging time 3.5 hours
- Scheduling is available
- It has a hole at the bottom where you can put the perfume
- It uses a photo sensor to avoid falling off stairs
- Comes with 3 washable filters
Full specifications can be found here.
Unlike Neato or Roomba, the QQ-2 Plus is not smart, what they have done is equip this robot with five pre-programmed cleaning modes. By default, all five devices will run in this order:
Infinuvo claims that with all five modes turned on, you’ll have access to all areas of the room but you can select a specific mode you want if you so choose.
It has a wall sensor that tells the robot when it encounters an object to turn and move around it.
It will return to its docking station or at least try to use the light sensor, when it fails to find it within 30 minutes, it will automatically go to sleep so that the battery does not run out.
In a review by RobotShop, this robot took about 30 minutes to complete the room. But this was because they had to wait for them to complete a course. She was able to go home but had a hard time getting through the maze.
Will he clean the stairs?
You can schedule this robot to clean independently once a day, 7 days a week.
The manual says that the charging time is between 3 to 3.5 hours.
The filters included with the QQ-2 Plus are washable and relatively easy to remove. Just press the “Open Dust Box” button, remove the dust box cover and remove the air filter.
Don’t forget to regularly clean and unclog your vacuum cleaner inlet, motorized brush, and side brushes while you’re at them.
A cleaning brush is included in the package to facilitate cleaning of the motorized brush.
the show length
Based on the user manual and reviews, expect about 80 minutes of uptime.
It comes with a 1 year warranty on the robot and 6 months on the battery.
Executing floor cleaning
This one is only designed for light cleaning because it only has a small hole and the motorized brush design doesn’t remove dirt from floors but pushes it in front of the really small hole (which I already mentioned) where it takes the suction over, the problem is that this robot has a very weak vacuum motor so it can’t pick up much .
You’ll struggle with light but larger debris like paper and pet hair as well as heavier debris like screws and nuts.
Just like what I said in the bare floor cleaning section, it will not work well on carpets due to the poor vacuum motor and lack of pickup power from the motorized brush.
Do not use this on anything but the thinnest of carpets.
Another thing to note is that this will not clean black carpet or rugs.
He won’t be able to climb anything longer than half a centimeter, so if you have a thick mat it’s best to keep it out of the way.
Pet hair removal
This robot has a brush so it is able to clean pet hair from bare floor and low pile carpet/rugs. The biggest problem will be the size of the suction chamber where large clumps of pet hair won’t pass through.
If you have a lot of pets, you may want to consider another robot. I’ve posted an article discussing the best robot vacuums for pet hair – be sure to check out this guide.

Less than 20 people left a comment, but what they said was largely consistent with the results At RobotShop, consumers who liked it said it did well at picking up small, light debris like dust and short pet hair, but it struggled with larger, heavy debris.
One of the things that a lot of consumers liked is the price because it costs half the price of the Neato and almost 3 times less than the iRobot.
There are also issues with the robot brush trying to suck up the carpet’s tassels thus interrupting the cleaning cycle. But to be fair, this is a common problem with all brush robot vacuums right now.
Review from other sites
One of my favorite robotics review sites, they did a comprehensive review of several key aspects of this robot and found it did a decent job on the bare floor picking up light dirt but for more heavy-duty tasks it wasn’t up to par due to poor suction and a small vacuum inlet that tends to Easily clogged.
Navigation was another weakness as it didn’t have any wall sensor allowing it to follow walls like Roomba or Neato.
Where can I buy this?
You can buy this on Amazon but unfortunately we are out of stock.
This product would be great for people who have mostly hard floors in their homes who would like to help with small cleaning tasks such as cleaning dust under furniture.
It lacks the power to clean more than fine pile carpets. And since the suction chamber is small, only small debris will enter through it.
Navigate wisely, it is quite old compared to more advanced robots like Hom Bot, Neato and Roomba, the lack of a navigation system will cause this to bump into things a lot and you will need to take care of it a lot, if the room has a lot of clutter or furniture.
In terms of price, it is one of the cheapest brands in the market but as they say, you get what you pay for so don’t expect much from this.
