O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner Features
O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner is powered via 3.6 volts 1000 mAh Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery, which features slight memory effect:
- when unit arrives, it must be charged 12h before the very first use.
- when the unit stops due to the low battery event, it is recommended to charge the battery for at least 8 hours.
- once a month, discharge the battery fully and then charge it back again.
- when the battery is charged, unplug the charger from the unit.
O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner should be charged only with the battery charger supplied with the unit. Also, this battery charger should be used only for charging the battery of the O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner, not for some other device.
Also, unit is rather lightweight and it weighs ~470g (~1.04 pounds).
Note: O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner is extremely simple to use and maintain floor duster. Again, it is a floor duster, not vacuum. However, when it arrives, be sure to read the manual thoroughly, just in case.
O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner features two cleaning modes, differing only in cleaning time - 30 minutes and 120 minutes.
Shorter, 30 minutes mode is on average enough for 320 sq. ft. (~30 m2) area and the longer, 120 minutes mode can clean up to ~1250-1300 sq. ft. (~120 m2).
O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner is very simple to use floor duster:
- attach the clean disposable cleaning cloth to the soft unit's base,
- select a desired program (30 minutes, 120 minutes),
- after the unit stops, if the cloth is really dirty, simply throw it into the trashcan.
And that is all.
Note: disposable electrostatic cleaning cloth is not washable, but in order to prolong the cloth's operating time, some users vacuum them gently after each cleaning.
Disposable electrostatic cleaning cloth are available in rather cheap 20-cloth refill packages, so when the cloth gets dirty, dispose of them and put on a new, clean one.
Note: like many robot vacuums, this robot floor duster is sensitive to obstacles in the form of wires, carpet edges, toys and similar.
To help the O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner doing its tasks, be sure to remove any floor obstacle where the unit may get stuck. Also, it doesn't feature cliff sensors used for detecting the stairs - if you have stairs at your home, be sure to physically limit unit's access to such areas - or it might fall down the stairs and get damaged.
O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner Maintenance
O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner is simple to both use and to maintain.
The most important tasks include keeping the battery charged, replacing the dirty cloth with the clean one, and cleaning the wheels from the tangled hair, lint and other similar dirt.
O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner comes with 1-year limited warranty.
For short: O-Cedar O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner is floor robot duster and NOT robot vacuum. It is relatively cheap and reliable unit that cleans well wide, flat, bare areas with no obstacles where it can get stuck. And it easily gets stuck when there are loose wires, small toys and similar items.
Its disposable electrostatic cleaning cloths are cheap and they do the job well - they are not washable and when they get dirty, throw them away and replace with the clean ones.
If you need help in keeping your bare floors clean (for example, have kids and pets, no spare time), consider this unit, especially if found on the sale - it helps to keep the floors clean, but the main cleaning tasks must be performed using bare floor vacuums.
Those people that have mixed floor types should consider getting a proper robot vacuum cleaner that is able to traverse from bare floors to carpets and back and clean them combining brushrolls and vacuum suction.
