The latest and newest Ecovacs Deebot T10+ packs new features, such as a camera, patrol mode, a built-in voice assistant, and a redesigned compact auto-empty bin. These new features bump up the pricing by quite a bit, as the T10+ (with the Auto Empty Station) officially costs S$1,999, around S$1,200 more than the Ecovacs Deebot T9+. But its actual store price is just S$1,199, which is still about S$400 more than the T9+. I'm not convinced the newer model is worth the premium, though, especially if you don't need the voice assistant or the camera.
- Automatic carpet detection
- Ecovacs app, Yiko voice assistant
- Less than 66dB(A) in sweep mode
- 5,200mAh battery, 6.5hr charging time
Like the T9+, the T10+ also comes with a version without the Auto-Empty Station (T10, S$899). But I'd argue the bin is worth it. It sucks out the dust after every session, while the new design empties the T10+'s bin from the side. It seems a bit better than sucking the dirt from under like in the T9+. I didn't see leftover fur or hair in the bin. The T10+'s Auto-Empty Station bin stores more than the T9+, 3.2L versus 2.5L, and up to 60 days versus 30 days.
One difference between the T9 and the T10 models is the built-in camera. It allows the vacuum cleaner to be used as a remote security cam. You can move it via remote control, or set it to patrol your home. The T10 also easily avoided objects in its way, thanks to an AI-powered camera. It did, however, suck up my chenille bathroom mat, which I had to rescue. The built-in Yiko voice assistant means you can tell your vacuum to clean, make a map, or clean specific rooms. You can also get it to report the battery status or change the vacuuming or mopping speeds. You can also do it all from the app. Honestly, I think the voice assistant feature is pointless, but if you enjoy talking to your vacuum… I won't judge.
The T10 also lets you swap to a mopping module, but the module placement is now at the back (due to the camera). This means you have to move the vacuum out of the charger before you can change from the air freshener to the mop. I do like that the mop now uses a slot design, which makes it easy to align the cloth pad. Cleaning volume isn't very loud, but the vacuum does a good job of sucking up stuff. The mopping mode also cleverly avoids carpets, but the robot may get trapped in a spot if there's insufficient space to get out. If that happens, you can set no-go lines to prevent a repeat.
Retailing at S$1,199 online, the Ecovacs Deebot T10+ sports some shiny new features. But I do feel they distract from the primary purpose of vacuuming, which it does well anyway. The camera is probably useful for checking in remotely on your pets, though. Get it from Shopee or Lazada.
