Inside the box

The Roborock S5 Max vacuum is accompanied by essential accessories for its operation: the charging base, a plastic surface to attach to the base, so as not to damage the floor, if the cloth is wet, a cloth and the water tank. The filter and rotating brush are already installed in the vacuum cleaner.

The Roborock S5 Max Design

The Roborock S5 Max has a design very similar to the most traditional vacuum robots. It is round, with a rotating broom, front shock absorber, laser sensors on the top, garbage dump, anti-shock and anti-fall sensors …

In this particular case, it has a glossy finish on the top and matte on the sensor area. It is available in black and white, thus also adapting to your home decor, since it is an equipment that will be visible in the base division.

As dimensions it has 353 x 350 x 96.5 mm and weighs 3.5 kg. At the top there are laser sensors to map the area and the various control buttons. It also has the lid that gives access to the deposit, the Wi-Fi indicator light and the reset button. In this area there is also an accessory to help clean the vacuum cleaner.

At the front it included a bumper with sensor for the location of the charging base. On the side, in turn, there is a wall sensor and at the bottom the various fall arrest sensors. There is also the water tank, to which the mop is attached.

Below is the main rotating brush, the side rubber broom, the omnidirectional wheel and the main wheels capable of climbing up to two centimeters. It is a characteristic created with the intention of crossing small gaps and carpets.

Sensors and mapping

The mapping of the house is done on the first aspiration, simultaneously. This is a characteristic common to several models, even from other brands, which, in a way, turns out to be more efficient.

Sensors and mapping

As for the mapping is done correctly, however, afterwards in the app, it may be necessary to adjust some divisions that were not well defined. In addition, the user can store up to 4 maps, which is great for those with more than one floor.

Walls and obstacles are recognized correctly, with no unnecessary strikes during cleaning. In addition, the fall arrest sensors also revealed no flaws.

Roborock – the mobile application

The vacuum cleaner is fully controlled by the Roborock mobile application, available for Android and iOS for free. Thus, it allows you to do all the remote control, even outside the home, since the vacuum cleaner is connected to the home Wi-Fi network.

In addition to having vacuuming, stopping, returning to the base, it is possible to define localized suction areas, make appointments and consult information on the cleaning history and also enable other features to be activated.

One of them is the intelligent carpet detection, increasing the suction power. It works really well. However, it should be noted that when using the water tank, you must create limits on the carpets, since the detection does not prevent the robot from climbing it. In some cases, water can damage the carpet.

Another is the map recording mode that allows you to save up to 4 maps. That is, for those who have more than one floor in the house, it is possible to have the vacuum cleaner adapted to each of them.

The use of the cleaning cloth now allows you to control the water dispensed, by room. The suction power of the vacuum cleaner can also be adjusted via the app.

Vacuuming and cleaning

The Roborock S5 Max makes a very efficient suction and the possibility to adjust the suction power is very advantageous. Water cleaning is only superficial, even with water adjustment. Still, for the day-to-day it is more than enough to keep the house clean. At the end of washing the floor with the cloth, simply remove it and wash it in the washing machine.

In addition, both water dispensing and suction power can be adjusted by room. Something that, until then, I hadn't seen in any vacuum cleaner.

The route taken by the vacuum cleaner is classified as more efficient, since it tends to cover the largest space in a straight line, after having already made the entire route around the area to be vacuumed. Most vacuum cleaners do the same cleaning, but in all rooms they follow the same cleaning guidelines.


Autonomy is always an important aspect and, in this case, very positive. This robot allows you to vacuum an area of ​​about 140 m² with a battery cycle, with the maximum suction power. At the medium level, it can reach up to 210 m², which is quite a lot.

Still, if cleaning is not completed, the Roborock S5 Max returns to the base, charges and resumes its work until it is finished.


The Roborock S5 Max appears as a viable option within what are the best vacuum cleaners on the market. In addition to an efficient vacuuming of the floor, rugs and carpets, it also guarantees the cleaning of the floor through your mop.
