And we’ll take a look at their latest product – Yeedi Vac 2 Pro.
This variant looks similar to the Yeedi Vac Station, and two upgrades enhance its functionality.
I’ve tested this product over the past week, and the results have been (mostly) excellent.
One of the cheapest pillow while avoiding obstructions and vibration
Yeedi Vac 2 Pro Review
The Vac 2 Pro is the latest Yeedi product with two significant improvements – Front laser sensors for obstacle avoidance and vibrating scanning unit They call it the “Oscillating Scan System”. Another improvement is the obstacle avoidance system with front laser sensors, which improves how he evades things. Besides these two upgrades, the Vac 2 Pro is like a Vac station with (slightly) less airflow. Consumers will have two options – bot-only model and bot + auto-blank base station. This bot is compatible with the Vac Statio base station, so it’s another option to consider.
- One of the cheapest with obstacle avoidance and vibration plate
- Low profile design fits low clearance furniture (less than three inches)
- Advanced cleaning performance thanks to high airflow
- Efficient wiping performance with oscillating pad
- Decent for deep carpet cleaning
- Cheaper than Roborock S5 Max (with discount)
- Features of the app are above average
- Do not resist tangling well
- The robot tends to stop on a dirty pillow
- It can only save one map level
Introduction to Yeedi Vac 2 Pro
Before we delve into the features, here’s an overview of the options available.
There are three variations of Yeedi Vac 2.
The first option is Vac 2 (without “Pro”). This variant is similar to the Pro and has front 3D sensors to avoid obstacles, but Minus the wobbling wiping pad.
The next option is the Vac 2 Pro, the model I am reviewing. she has Avoid obstacle and swing board But at a higher cost. And according to Yeedi, it will last longer (220 minutes vs. 110).
Finally is the Vac 2 Pro With self-discharge base. This model is the most expensive because it comes with a base station but it still Cheaper than Roomba I3 +.
When I got this robot, I didn’t know what to expect after testing the Vac Station, which was one of the best value options out there.
These robots look very similar with the top-mounted camera, one-sided brush, and combo brush layout, but there are two upgrades worth noting.
Most obvious are the front laser sensors, which help it avoid obstacles more than any other Yeedi robot vacuum.
Yeedi used similar sensors as the Ecovacs, and both brands share many components.
I’ve tested this feature extensively with mixed results. It was decent with things within the sensor’s line of sight, but there are noticeable blind spots.
The Vac 2 Pro was excellent at avoiding things like shoes, big toys, and even coiled wires. Anything big enough for the sensor to “see” will avoid them.
Unfortunately, the blind spot issue makes me hesitant to recommend this to pet owners due to the high risks of touching pet feces.
Another problematic point for laser sensors is to avoid extended wires.
There have been cases where they have been avoided, but the presence of blind spots increases the risk of wires getting tangled on the brush.
oscillating wiping pad
The least underrated upgrade is the new scanning unit Yeedi calls a “wobbly pad.”
I didn’t notice this feature until I tested it on stains.
Unlike the Roborock S7+ and S7 MaxV Ultra, with only part of the map shaking, the Yeedi version has the entire squeegee moving (or swaying).
It helps the pad remove stains efficiently in one swipe better than any other brand in its price segment.
At first, I wondered why Yeedi would put a placeholder container behind the bot, which doesn’t have any functionality.
This turned out to be a necessity because the new water tank was huge and heavy with the motor for the wobble feature inside.
I tried removing the back panel of the pillow, but I couldn’t because it was a fixed piece.
Unfortunately, this robot does not have a wash pad feature, so you will have to wash it by hand or throw it in the washing machine.
But that’s not bad as most robots in this price range don’t even have an exciting wiping component, let alone a wash-pad feature.
This assembly also doubles as a 180ml water tank – 60ml smaller than the Vac 2 (Non-Pro version).
Android Top Views
The Vac 2 Pro is like a Vac station, with a one-button interface and a top-mounted camera.
All functions can be accessed through the app, so Yeedi didn’t need to put more buttons.
The use of the camera reduces the vertical footprint of the robot, which helps it to fit under furniture with low clearance.
The Yeedi Vac 2 Pro is barely three inches tall, so I’d fit most furniture with a 3.1″ clearance.
It is the most important advantage for Yeedi bots versus LIDAR like Roborock.
Even other camera-based robots like Roomba You don’t have that low-level design.
Underneath it, the Vac 2 Pro is similar to the Vac Station, and has the same design and brushes.
Uses a single-sided brush with bristle heads that require no attachments.
While the side brush is appropriate in directing debris toward the primary roller, it will not be as durable as a full rubber brush.
Another (potential problem) is the nature of the rapid rotation, which leads to debris scattering, as was the case during experiments.
Another similarity with the Vac Station is the combo brush as well as the front panels.
This design was decent with picking up debris, but the soft bristles got in the way of carpet cleaning.
You can see the two slots under the trash can (behind the base brush) of the base station that empties automatically.
This variant retains the same dust box as the Vac station with a wide opening and rear filter.
He. She Capacity 420ml (similar to a Vac station), but this is five times more with the self-discharging base station.
The wide opening makes it easy to empty and clean any excess buildup.
Self-unloading base station [optional]
Yeedi offers the Vac 2 Pro with a self-discharging base station.
It’s similar to that of the Vac station, with the same ramp-style berth and a 2.5-liter bag capacity.
The bagged system makes getting rid of dirt easy and hygienic versus a bagless system like Shark intelligence.
Consumers can purchase this set as a set from Amazon, which I recommend to save cost versus buying them separately.
The Vac 2 Pro is compatible with the Yeedi app, with some interesting features that we are going to enumerate.
Connecting the app and the robot is a little different than the other robot vacuums I’ve reviewed.
Consumers will need to scan the QR code found here next to the trash.
Once you scan it, follow the steps in the app to complete the task.
But don’t worry, it’s a straightforward task that will take less than five minutes.
The most difficult part was getting the bot to read the QR code (above).
It didn’t scan the first time I tried, but after pressing the little gray button next to the QR code, the process was smooth.
Once setup is complete, the app will ask users to create a map.
Yeedi Vac 2 Pro Does not have playback maps Because it does not use LIDAR, so it will be a long process.
Now to the features.
1. Live Map
Yeedi is one of the rare VSLAM robots with a live camera.
Almost all other brands I’ve tested (iRobot and Shark) don’t have this feature, so there’s no way of knowing where the robot is during the cleaning process.
It doesn’t have the lines you see in LIDAR bots like Roborock, but it’s impossible for a camera bot because of how VSLAM works.
2. Save map
Yeedi app has map save feature but can only save one level.
I hope Yeedi improves upon this limitation and considers the multiple map saving feature in future updates.
Users can customize the map by adding virtual boundaries and sections and naming each area, which we’ll look at below.
3. Virtual borders
Every home has no-go zones, and this is where the Virtual Borders feature comes in handy.
It enables consumers to draw restricted areas on the map for the robot.
This feature is similar to restricted areas and is useful, especially for people with pets or young children.
4. Label areas
After creating the map, consumers can name each area on the app using this feature.
They can choose from a list, but the custom label is not available.
The app is smart enough to recognize entrances, at least for homes with actual doors attached.
I recognized it automatically in my house – I didn’t have to add a partition (manually).
5. Clean the assigned (or allotted) area
Another useful feature is custom (or custom) cleaning, where people can select a specific area to clean.
It is similar to spot cleaning in old robot vacuum cleaners, but this feature has better control over the products because you can decide which area to clean.
6. Power and water level settings
The Yeedi Vac 2 Pro has four power settings and three water level settings.
There isn’t much contrast with the three low power settings, and it has a good enough flap to pick up surface debris on hard floors, low-pile carpets, and rugs, so I’ll keep it at either the standard or maximum settings to maximize exposure time.
7. Cleaning sequence
Yeedi also allows people to customize the cleaning sequence – which room (or area) the bot will clean first through the app.
Finally, a scheduling feature that automates the vacuuming task.
This feature is excellent with the self-emptying base station because it automates the entire process as it empties the robot’s trash for you.
Consumers can schedule multiple cycles (as many as they want) and customize further by selecting a specific day of the week, weekdays, weekends, etc.
Yeedi Vac 2 Pro uses VSLAM, mainly relying on the camera sensor for navigation.
Like other VSLAM robots like Roomba, it moves in straight lines.
During the initial map creation run, it goes in the direction of the dock, but it goes the most efficient path after that (after saving the map).
One advantage of Yeedi over brands like iRobot and Shark is that it has a live map so consumers can see their progress in real time during the cleaning cycle.
Another advantage of the Vac 2 Pro is efficient navigation.
I test the efficiency by running a test run inside my small room with Quaker oats spread in strategic areas to see how much they are picking up (and how long it takes).
The Vac 2 Pro finished in under 17 minutes – one of the fastest times compared to other robot vacuums I’ve tested.
Also, I picked up most of the Quaker oats after the first pass.
How much power does the Yeedi Vac 2 Pro have?
Yeedi claims that the Vac 2 Pro It has (up to) 3000Pa of suction. I don’t put a lot of weight on Pascals because it’s not a very accurate measure of performance.
Previous robots I tested that claimed to have high suction performed poorly in specific cleaning tests that required high suction.
The most accurate gauge is the CFM, which measures air flow directly into the cleaning nozzle as debris flows toward the dust box.
Below are the results for the Vac 2 Pro.
- calm: 7.56 cubic feet per minute
- Basic: 10.87 cubic feet per minute
- the above: 13.39 cubic feet per minute
- Max +: 20.52 cubic feet per minute
It wasn’t as loud as the Vac station, but Still penetrating 20 CFMwhich is (still) an excellent number, especially for a robot in this price bracket.
High-flow bots tend to perform better in cleaning tests, and the Vac 2 Pro scores above average.
Next, we’ll look at the results of the cleaning test as I put the robot through its paces on Quaker oats, pet droppings, quinoa, coffee grounds, and sand.
- Inclusive: 92.71%
- Solid ground: 97.75%
- carpet: 98%
- Sand on the hard floor: 99.26%
- deep cleaning: 75.83%
It had good overall averages but not as good as the other premium options.
One culprit is the deep cleaning test scores, which lead to lower overall averages.
Although the airflow is higher, it picked up less than 80% Because it has softer bristles that get in the way of how dirt is stirred up on the carpet.
iRobot Products Good with deep cleaning tests because these products have dirt detection and use fully rubber anti-roll straws (both patented technologies).
Regardless, the Vac 2 Pro is still one of the best non-Roomba products and one of the least expensive alternatives.
- Quaker Oats: 98.6%
- Cafe floors: 98.2%
- Quinoa: 97.2%
- pet litter: 97%
The high airflow of the Yeedi Vac 2 Pro helps it score high on hard floors.
However, one problem is the side brush is fast spinning, scattering debris and damaging the cleaning mediums.
If Yeedi can lower the side brush speed, it will perform better, especially with large piles of debris.
On top of that, I often picked this up while running Maps in my dad’s house on the lowest power setting.
This result was surprising because I wasn’t expecting you to get that much, but it was a pleasant surprise.
It has good enough vibration to prevent dust and debris from accumulating on your floors (even carpets).
In addition to that Self-unloading base station Enhances usability by emptying the trash for you.
The result of sand on the hard floor
Cleaning the sand is one of the most challenging tasks for a robot vacuum, and it’s an excellent measure of performance.
The Vac 2 Pro was excellent, with an average score of 99.26%.
I picked up most of it after the first pass (at the highest setting), which proves the high airflow (20 feet per minute).
hair wrap tests
I tested the Yeedi Vac 2 Pro on five- and seven-inch leads on hard floors, and here are the results.
- 5 inch: 97.3%
- 7 inch: 37%
This robot is excellent, with its 5-inch threads up 97.3%. Here’s a look at how much hair is inside the trash.
The basic brush.
Barely coiled on the brush, but there was some buildup on the axle.
Unfortunately, it didn’t do well with my longer seven-inch hair – most of it wrapped around the brush.
These experiences show that consumers need to brush regularly if they own pets or live with someone with long hair.
It is part of the robot vacuum maintenance to keep it running efficiently.
The Vac 2 Pro’s round frame hindered its pickup on the edges, but it’s got most of the wreckage.
I scattered a lot of debris and got most of it, but it won’t be as effective or as good as Roomba S9 + (with square front).
However, for a robot with a round frame, this is a good result.
Next, we’ll look at how the Yeedi Vac 2 Pro works on carpets – low and medium pile.
I tested it on the same types of debris, and the results were above average.
- Quaker Oats: 99%
- Cafe floors: 95.2%
- Quinoa: 99.8%
- pet litter: 96.4%
The Vac 2 Pro did reasonably well in all four trials and was captured in the mid-90s to the fullest.
I struggled more with pet droppings and coffee grounds but managed to get a high.
However, compared to more expensive brands, the Vac 2 Pro holds its own wreck on this surface.
- Quaker Oats: 99.2%
- Cafe floors: 95.2%
- Quinoa: 100%
- pet litter: 99.2%
Surprisingly, the Vac 2 Pro performed better (at least with percentages) on a medium pile carpet (98.4% vs. 97.6%).
It’s only a slight difference, but it’s further evidence of how higher airflow helps pick up debris from carpeting.
Yeedi should consider a better brush roller to improve debris pickup even more.
Deep cleaning results
The Deep Clean test is the litmus test of any robotic vacuum cleaner (regardless of price). I use 100 grams of sand on a medium pile rug to check how much you pick up.
This experiment tests the excitement and airflow of any robotic vacuum.
The Vac 2 Pro performed well, Captures 75.83% on average In three tests. It’s not at the level of Roomba, but it’s one of the best grades for any option other than Roomba.
How noisy is the Yeedi Vac 2 Pro?
Another experiment I run with robot vacuums is to test the noise with a sound meter from a few meters away.
Here are the results for Yeedi Vac 2 Pro.
- calm: 61.4 dB
- Basic: 63.2 dB
- the above: 63.4 dB
- Max +: 73.3 dB
It’s (relatively) quiet at the bottom three settings, but broke through 70dB at the max+ setting.
Fortunately, these three settings are (more than) sufficient for everyday cleaning tasks, even on low-pile carpeting.
I will only use the max + setting on the medium pile carpet, but that’s all to maximize uptime.
How long does Yeedi Vac 2 Pro run?
Yeedi (large capacity) uses a 5200mAh Li-ion battery with a Claimed runtime 220 minutesThis makes it an excellent choice within larger homes.
Pair its long runtime with recharging and resume, plus its self-discharge feature makes it an attractive option within large spaces due to its autonomy.
Like most robotic vacuum cleaners, the Yeedi Vac 2 Pro requires maintenance to operate efficiently in the long run.
I will list the parts that need to be cleaned or replaced below. These steps are essential to proprietary vacuuming robots to maximize service life and cleaning performance.
- Basic brush: Dirt and hair will build up on the most misused element of your robot vacuum. Check and clean them (at least) once a week to reduce unwanted friction and maintain cleaning efficiency.
- Side brush: Besides the main brush, the side brush is the next most used part. Hair will build up on its base, so remove the side brush (weekly) to remove this buildup.
- Dustbin: Empty the trash after each run to prevent dust mites from breeding. Purchasing a Vac 2 Pro with the base station will automate this process.
- Dustbin filter: Make sure the filter is clean by taking it out (weekly) and tapping it on a hard surface with old newspaper on top to catch debris. It’s a technique I use with robot vacuum filters since most of the buildup is in the folds.
- wiping pad: The oscillating pad will pick up a lot of dirt from the mopping floors. Remove the pad after each hand wash wipe (recommended) to keep it clean.
- fall sensors: Use a cotton swab or a clean, dry microfiber towel to wipe the drop sensors.
- bag [optional]: Throw the bag away as soon as it’s full and replace it with a new one (if you purchased the base station that deflates automatically).
