Roborock S8 lineup brings next-gen cleaning skills to CES 2023

Roborock is one of the biggest names in the world of robot vacuums. CES 2023 was another big showing for the company, as it revealed the Roborock S8 lineup that consists of three products, one of which offers advanced self-cleaning capabilities while docked.

The S8 Pro Ultra is the most exciting robot vacuum of the bunch, offering suction power that maxes out at 6,000Pa, a new dual rubber roller brush that’s great for tackling troublesome pet hair, and a mopping system that can retract 6mm to prevent cross-contamination when heading back to the dock. There’s also an innovative mopping system (dubbed VibraRise 2.0), which allows for floors to be scrubbed 3,000 times per minute and is robust enough to handle just about anything you throw at it.

Beyond a retractable mop and enhanced roller brush, the S8 Pro Ultra picked up a few new tricks while docked. The robot will automatically clean its mop and empty its dustbin, but its coolest feature is a warm air dryer that ensures no mold or odors have a chance to take root between each cleaning session.

Two other products, the Roborock S8 and Roborock S8+, round out the S8 reveals. The lineup will start at $750 and launches this April.

Roborock also debuted the Dyad Pro cordless wet-dry vacuum, which can churn out suction power that maxes out at a staggering 17,000Pa. And just like the S8 Pro Ultra, it can clean itself while docked. It even boasts a pretty sleek design, despite packing in top-of-the-line suction power. The Dyad Pro launches this month for $450.

Roborock S4 vacuum bot has the ability to free itself when it gets stuck

Robotic vacuum cleaners fulfill one of science fiction's most intriguing ideas for the future: Self-cleaning machines. No one enjoys vacuuming (least of all cats), but a robotic vacuum cleaner can be everyone's best friend. The downside is that so many of the current models have a terrible habit of getting stuck on furniture, under couches, and pretty much anywhere else they can get caught. Roborock has solved this issue with the latest addition to its S series, the Roborock S4 -- a robotic vacuum with the ability to free itself from obstacles, according to the creators.

The Roborock S4 can clean for up to three hours at a time before it needs to return to its dock to charge. It can transition between carpet and hardwood without affecting its ability to clean, and its heavy-duty wheels let it move between surfaces without getting stuck. Roborock has added more sensors to the S4 (for a total of 11) to improve its fall avoidance, height sensitivity, and its ability to avoid entrapment. its navigation lasers scan the room up to 300 times per minute and create a real-time map that is accurate up to2 centimeters.

EcoFlow launches Delta 2 Max solar generator for home emergencies and outdoor adventures
ecoflow's delta max portable power station on a table

EcoFlow, a manufacturer of portable energy solutions, has announced the launch of the Delta 2 Max -- an eco-friendly solar generator that could replace your current gas generator. The device clocks in at 2,048 watts and should deliver enough power to keep your home running for two days as an emergency backup (or many more if you’re using it as an off-grid power source).

The original Delta Max was a popular item for outdoor adventures, as it could connect to the existing lineup of portable EcoFlow solar panels to juice up gadgets while out in the backcountry. That legacy continues with the Delta 2 Max, which features an upgraded lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery for a longer life cycle and faster charging.
