The Auto-Empty Station stopped cleaning the DEEBOT’s dustbin automatically after cleaning each time. I did see something about some Icon for auto empty but I can’t find it. It did auto empty the first few times, I think a setting might have changed but I can’t find it yet.
Does anyone know if this channel has spoken about the upgraded mopping unit for the T8 family of vacuums?
It looks like it has a different pump and vibrates the mop pad for a deeper clean, rather than just moving it over spills.
Have you noticed an improvement at clearing pet hair from the auto empty bin since the latest firmware update. May be a coincidence but volumes of hair that I thought would get stuck (would do pre update) are now clearing.
I love your reviews! Thank you so much! How does this do when it comes to cleaning corners? Is there one you recommend for corner cleaning?
I had this system and love it. And thank you for the videos, they are always super well done and informative. Can you please answer this if you know! How do I know when the bag is full??? I can’t find an app notification or anything?
What’s your cat’s name?
Got one. Sorry, cannot match my old Roboroc S5’s nav. I’m constantly having to rescue the T8 and it often gets lost trying to return for recharge. Also won’t crawl up on the area rugs most of the time (mixed tile/carpet/rugs). Unimpressed. I’d rather empty a solid Roboroc once per clean than help this thing all the time.
My husband and I picked up a T8 on Black Friday at a ridiculously low price. I don’t think I’ve had to rescue it once, and rarely have to empty it during its daily run. It’s really quiet, and even without the auto empty bin, it’s been almost pleasant to use. Almost. Haven’t used the mop function yet. I also don’t chase it screaming like a moron like I do with our Roomba.

Is there any alternatives for those bag filters? Such as plastic bags.
You have issues with mapping changes especially when bedroom doors are closed? That it thinks now there is a wall even when the door is now open.
My auto empty function stopped working. After cleaning it announces that is is auto cleaning and has the notice in the app, but it is not actually auto emptying…Help
@vacuumwars any update?
So how is it now ? Is it better I’m tossing up between i7 plus with the deebot t8 aivi
So when the robot is full while cleaning it doesn’t stop ? It try’s to keep going to complete its run ? Or does it know when it’s full and return home to empty ?
Great videos! 🙂 Are you still using it? Or did you switch to something better?
How do you expect this to compare with the Roborock S7 just launched?
when ti empties the bin do you have also some kind of dusty air comes out of the station?
Hi I bought the T8Aviv that came with the auto bin but after 2mths of usage the bot could not go up the ramp of the disposable bin when the mopping pad was attached but if I undo the pad it has no problem when I contacted the company they told me to manually put it on the charging dock which to me defeats the purpose of having the automatic disposable bin!! Don’t you think they should rectify the problem instead of asking me to manually do it!? Please advise!!
I bought this vacuum after doing a lot of research including watching this video and others. The main problem I have found with this vacuum is the app is terrible. I have a fairly large house with a floorplan that is not on a grid and has 3 levels, one of which is 2 steps down to a sunken living room. The bot only supports 2 levels, so when I need to vacuum the living room, I have to place the bot on that level and let the bot create a whole new map, which is deleted after I finish unless I want to delete one of the other 2 maps and replace that one with the new living room map. Next, the app is extremely difficult to work with to do simple things like divide an area. The map developed for my downstairs didn’t recognize some of the walls as being walls, so they have become a part of a very large area that includes the foyer, the long hallway that goes to the back bedrooms of the house, the dining room, kitchen and our breakfast dining area. The app allowed me to make one divide in the space and now I can’t make any more. I have reported the problems to Ecovacs, but between their English being very poor and their resistance to admit the limitations of their product, I have gotten nowhere. if I could return the robot I would. It is junk without the proper tools available to manage it. Buy something else. I gave it one star on Amazon.
i own this robot. The port to auto-evacute the dust inside the bin is too small. Therefore, be prepared to empty the dustbin yourself EVERY TIME. Other then that, it works good. FAIL FAIL FAIL🤮😡
