Designed to mop and sweep hard floors like tiles and marble, the iRobot Braava Jet is a compact mopping robot equipped with a water spray and a vibrating head that fits disposable proprietary cleaning pads. The device only works with Braava Jet Cleaning Pads which come bundled with the box and are also sold separately. There are different types of disposable and reusable pads available for various cleaning jobs like mopping, damp sweeping or simple dusting. The wet mopping and damp sweeping pads, contain a water-activated cleaning agent. The three types of pads are listed below:
- Single-Use Wet Mopping Pad – triple-pass cleaning for dirt and stains2 well-sealed floors such as hardwood, tile, and stone
- Single-Use Damp Sweeping Pad – single-pass cleaning for everyday dust and dirt on sealed wood floors, and can also be used on tile and stone
- Single-Use Dry Sweeping Pad – single-pass cleaning traps and locks dust, dirt and pet hair on all hard floors, including hardwood, tile, and stone
The Braava Jet can navigate on its own and create a 'Virtual Wall' to stop itself from entering restricted areas, like adjacent rooms, carpets, etc. It also features cliff sensors similar to the Roomba, so it can auto-detect stair or other such obstacles and avoid them. The device pairs with the iRobot HOME App (available for Android and iOS) over Bluetooth. The app allows users to easily start a cleaning process or stop one. The app can control multiple Braava Jets simultaneously and it includes a 'Spot Clean' mode for quick-cleaning a small stained area. You also get direct access to customer support for product related issues.
The robot mop is powered by a rechargeable 1950mAh lithium-ion battery and in the box, you get the removable-battery charger along with two of each type of the cleaning pads.
