Milagrow's new robot vacuum cleaners hope to solve the battery life problem once and for all

The IMap Max 24 Ultra Pro and IMap 15 Pro come with EV-grade batteries

Robot vacuum cleaners can do a lot with very little help, but cleaning and driving around uses up a lot of battery power. Smaller homes can get cleaned on a single charge, but large spaces usually need the robot to go back to the charging station at least once, before resuming the cleaning task. That's where Milagrow comes in, packing in what it claims are EV-grade batteries in its latest robot vacuum cleaners, the IMap Max 24 Ultra Pro and IMap 15 Pro, which come with 5800mAh and 5200mAh batteries respectively.

The fully-equipped Milagrow IMap Max 24 Ultra Pro is priced at Rs. 1,39,990, and comes with 7000Pa of suction power to go with its 5800mAh battery. The company claims that it can run for up to five hours and clean up to 4000 square feet on a single charge. Other features include hot water mop washing, an auto-lift system to pick up the mop when the device senses carpets, and a self-cleaning docking system which can empty the dustbin after every clean.

A bit more affordable is the IMap 15 Pro, which is priced at Rs. 39,990. it features 6500Pa of suction power, along with a 5200mAh battery with up to four hours or up to 4000 square feet of cleaning per charge. Both devices have wet mopping, app-based controls and automation, and Lidar navigation. All of this will make the new robots more suitable for large spaces, and you likely won't have to worry about the robot running out of juice before finishing up the cleaning task.
