Do you need to buy a self-emptying vacuum cleaner?

Do you feel inconvenient because you need to empty the trash can of your robot vacuum cleaner? You will find that every time you clean up, your hands will get covered in dust and dirt that has been picked up from all over your home. Then self-emptying robot vacuums will save you from such a predicament.

The automatic emptying system provides a resting place for the robot vacuum cleaner, which can charge the machine itself. It connects the robot to a series of vacuums that remove dirt and debris from the bin and place them in a larger bin.

For example, the current Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra, ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI, iRobot Roomba S9 + and other vacuum cleaners all have self-emptying bases.

Benefits of auto-emptying the base:

With a self-emptying base you can use the vacuum more often because it empties the trash by itself without you needing to do it. Then you won't have to bother cleaning four or five times a week, and your home will still be clean.

No contact with dust. Automatically empties the bag in the base without leaking anything. It is friendly to people with allergies, don't worry about allergies due to being close to the base station. There will be no dust and dirt on your hands after emptying.

There is no need to clean the bin as often, and it can hold dirt for weeks or months.

Disadvantages of auto-emptying the base:

If there are advantages, there will definitely be disadvantages, but the advantages will outweigh the disadvantages.

It's more expensive. Although more and more models now offer this base, the self-emptying base still adds a label to the vacuum cleaner. It also adds a fortune to the price.

It will take up some space. While it will look impressive, its design is also a bit bulky. For example, the base footprint of the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra will be large, at 19.4 inches by 16.5 inches. You need to find a suitable position for it.

There will be some noise. While most vacuums are quiet enough, they still make a lot of noise when they automatically empty the base. But the emptying time is relatively short, so you don't have to worry too much.

Is the self-emptying base worth it?

Definitely worth it. If you have enough space and budget, it is a good choice. Of course, you should also think about whether the automatic emptying of the base will improve the performance of the robot. Is it worth buying it at a high price? Of course, the final decision is still up to you.
