iRobot says the i3 + can capture 99% of pollen, mold, dust mites and allergens for cats and cats. Apparently, it has ten times the suction power of the Roomba 600 series and has the ability to figure out where dirt builds up, so you can focus on those areas.
Like its predecessors, the Roomba i7 + and the s9 +, the i3 + includes a cleaning dock called the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal, where the machine automatically empties the waste it collects and also serves as a charging station. The clean base includes the debris in a bag with four layers of allergen-blocking materials and is large enough to hold dirt and dust for months. It’s a lot cheaper than the $ 1,000 i7 + and the $ 1,400 s9 +, though that said, you can get the new Roomba without the clean base at an even cheaper price.
The Roomba i3 + with a clean base will give you back US $ 599, while the i3 without a base is priced at US $ 399. Both models are already available in the U.S. and Canada on the iRobot website and will go on sale at several retailers later this month. The Roomba i3 + will also be available in other countries during the first quarter of 2021.
