How Long Does A Robotic vacuum cleaner Battery Last

Robotic vacuum cleaner, as a newly emerging household appliance, is gaining popularity in modern homes for their proficiency and efficiency in house cleaning. DEEBOT series of products from ECOVACS are popular and reliable examples of cleaning robots Australia homes welcome.

However, a frequently neglected fact is that cleaning robots, as smart devices powered by electricity, depend a large part on their battery life for health operation and cleaning performance.

Today, we will offer you some basic information on the factors that decides the battery life of your cleaning robots. We will also provide some exclusive guidance for you to extend the working life of your robotic friend.

Factors Affecting Robotic vacuum cleaner Battery Life

The battery life of robotic cleaners depends on various factors such as their battery capacity, their working environments, and their usage pattern. Understanding the factors affecting the health of the battery helps you know how to extend its life span and improve its working efficiency in performing cleaning tasks.

Battery Capacity and Technology

The battery capacity and technology used in robotic vacuum cleaners play a crucial role in determining the cleaning performance and runtime of the device. The battery capacity may vary between different models and brands of robotic vacuums.

DEEBOT series from ECOVACS use lithium-ion batteries, which are known for their high energy density, long cycle life, and quick charging capabilities, which can be cost-effective in the long run.

The specification of battery capacity also varies among types, as is required by their working environments. DEEBOT X1 OMNI has a battery capacity of 5200 mA and work life of 140 minutes(sweep and mop on the hard floor with standard mode). DEEBOT T10 PLUS has a capacity of 5200 mA and a working time of up to 180 minutes (sweep and mop on the hard floor with standard mode) , allowing it to work continuously on large areas. DEEBOT N8+ features a battery capacity of 3200 mA and a working time of 110 continuous minutes, more suitable for small rooms.

Usage Patterns and Cleaning Modes

The battery capacity is the basis for the life span while the usage pattern truly decides how long a robotic vacuum cleaner can work. The battery health can be influenced by the frequency of use and workload of your robots. Working on a daily basis may shorten the battery life.

The cleaning mode you choose can impact battery life as well. Using a higher suction power mode or a deep cleaning mode that involves more intense cleaning actions may consume more battery power, leading to a shorter runtime.

Users of ECOVACS DEEBOT products can choose among several cleaning modes that are developed for different flooring materials and cleaning effects at the ECOVACS Home App.

Extending Robotic vacuum cleaner and Mop Battery Life

Proper use and regular maintenance help achieve longer battery life and better overall performance of your robotic vacuum and mop. This task may seem challenging as it involves technical requirements. As a matter of fact, this can be easily achieved in daily use and the secret is to develop a healthy habit.

Proper Charging And Storage Practices

Proper charging and storage practices are crucial for prolonging the battery life and improving performance.
  • Avoid Overcharging After the robotic cleaner is fully charged, it's crucial to avoid leaving it plugged in and charging for a lengthy amount of time. Overcharging could eventually result in a decline in battery performance.
  • Create an Optimal Working Environment The battery used in robotic vacuum cleaners is sensitive to heat and moisture. Therefore, you had better store your robot cleaner in a cool and dry place. Besides, try to keep it away from exposure to direct sunlight as it may accelerate the aging process of your battery.

Routine Maintenance

Dust and debris inside the device can affect battery life. In this case, regular maintenance, such as cleaning brushes and filters helps to ensure optimal battery performance in robotic vacuum cleaners.
  • Cleaning the Brushes The brushes underneath the main body can easily tangle with hair, debris, and dust. You can check and clean the brushes, including the main brush and side brushes, which can prevent clogs and maintain efficient cleaning performance.
  • Cleaning the Filters Filters in cleaning robots can capture fine particles and keep the air clean. They can also easily catch dust and debris. You can replace them with new ones to promise an optimal cleaning effect.
  • Check out Any Worn Parts Keep in mind to check for any loose hardware, clean the sensors and charging contacts, and remove any obstructions from the vacuum's airway.

When to Replace the Battery in Your Robotic vacuum cleaner

Reduced runtime, failure to hold a charge, and decline in suction power are signs that indicate a robotic vacuum cleaner battery needs replacement. Once you have noticed such malfunctions in your cleaning robot, you should replace new batteries before the condition of your robot turns worse.

Choosing a suitable battery requires patience and care. ECOVACS DEEBOT products each have their original battery design. You need to consider the type of your battery and its compatibility with specific types of robotic vacuums. Therefore, it is advised to find one from the manufacturers. Besides, do check the manufacturer's instructions when replacing a new one. Luckily, the ECOVACS Home App will send you notifications to replace and maintain the accessories.


Robotic vacuum cleaners need proper maintenance and usage practices. So do their batteries. If you want to extend the life span of your cleaning robot, you just need to spare a little more attention to its battery health.
