Description of iRobot Roomba 980

The iRobot Roomba 980 Robot Vacuum Cleaner is one of the more advanced Roomba models, with this unit coming with the AeroForce Cleaning System, Power Boost function, and iRobot HOME App control. The Roomba 980 is designed in a compact package that is small enough to fit under furniture and reach all those out of the way places. Dirt and cliff detection technology is also included.


The iRobot Roomba 980 has an advanced Gen 3 motor which gives the Roomba robot vacuum up to 10 times the air power in Performance Mode. The Roomba 980 robot vacuum cleans continuously for up to 120 minutes, and then returns home to its docking station to recharge and resume until the cleaning is done.


The iRobot Roomba 980 Robot Vacuum Cleaner features a number of innovative technologies that enable a deep clean every time. Along with the Smart Mapping and vSLAM technology, this unit also features Dirt Detect technology and Cliff Detect sensors that keep it from falling down the stairs. The Auto-Adjust Cleaning Head changes its height automatically and the Multi-Surface Brushes keep in close contact with the floor surface. Connectivity is also a big feature of this design, with this vacuum working seamlessly with the iRobot HOME App.


The Roomba 980 weighs just 3.95kg and has product dimensions of 35.31 x 35.31 x 9.14cm. It is available in a black-and-brown design and comes with many extras to ensure perfect operation right out of the box. This unit is just 9cm tall and capable of fitting under any standard bed and most furniture. The Roomba 980 comes with multi-surface brushes and a special edge-sweeping brush.
