Looking at the Yeedi K600 robotic vacuum, we’re seeing a very good vacuum without a lot of fuss. If you’re looking for an uncomplicated machine for someone who may have difficulty with phone apps and WiFi, the K600 is worth investigating.
It has a smart style and the tempered glass cover doesn’t just look good, it also prevents scratches which is great if you have an adventurous cat or a protective dog.
Let’s get a closer look at where this robot vacuum excels and where it could use a boost so that you can decide if it’s right for you.
Features of the Yeedi K600
Dimensions: 12.75 x 12.75 x 3.07 inches
Yeedi loves to talk about the low profile on the K600. It’s low but not that low.
You’ll need about 3.5 inches of clearance to prevent this robot vacuum from getting stuck.
Dustbin Capacity: 600ml
This is a good sized dustbin. The capacity is large enough that you won’t have to empty the dustbin before the cleaning session is finished under most circumstances.
There are three brushes. The roller brush is a V-shaped brush made of nylon and rubber. There are two edge brushes that use nylon bristles.
Charging: Four to Five Hours
Not much real estate is needed for the charging base to function properly. 1.6 feet on each side and 5 feet in front of the base will do nicely. This is the kind of charging base that you can fit under a side table next to a wall and it really isn’t noticeable.
Since this vacuum doesn’t have a lot of features, it’s nice that it will automatically return to the charging base when the battery runs low.
There’s a significant amount of power in this vacuum. Not as much as you’ll find in some higher priced models, but enough here to pick up a lot of debris and pet fur.
Runtime: 110 Minutes
Nearly two hours is a pretty good time to get most of the cleaning done on one charge.
Cleaning Modes: Two
There are two modes; default mode and Max mode.
Max Mode is activated by double-clicking the power button.
It doesn’t automatically switch power modes when it encounters a different kind of flooring. This means you’ll have to do a little pre-planning to figure out when you’ll be changing cleaning mode.
Sensors: Bumpers/LIDAR (Infrared)
The Yeedi runs on anti-collision technology. That means there’s a lot of bumping going on.
Not only does that mean you need to protect your furniture, you also need to close doors and partition off any other areas that need to be protected. The K600 doesn’t detect boundary strips or anything else, for that matter.
The random cleaning pattern can be started by either pressing the power button located on top of the vacuum or by pressing the power button on the remote control.
Anti-Drop Sensor: Yes
There are cliff sensors on the K600 but not a whole lot else.
Control Interface: Remote Control
The K600 has a very simplified interface. The remote control is very easy to use.
There’s a button for controlling the direction, a Stop/Start button, an edge clean button, a spot cleaning mode button and a button to return the vacuum to the charger.
Warranty: The Yeedi K600 comes with a 12 month warranty.
Feedback on the Yeedi K600 Robot Vacuum
What Consumers Like
Buyers love the price. This is about as affordable as a robotic vacuum gets. It still gets the job done though not as efficiently as some higher-priced models.
The lack of features like automatic height adjustment can be tedious.
This is definitely not a hands off model. You’ll want to keep the remote handy in case you see the vacuum getting into trouble. You may also find it troublesome that without an app, there’s no scheduling available either. You have to run the vacuum while you’re at home.
We’re also concerned that it seems to be difficult to find a support team for this vacuum.
At this price point, consider it a great help if you’re dealing with a lot of pet hair.
Also great for the elderly who refuse to learn how to use an app. Plus, weighing in at only six pounds, it’s light enough for them to manage emptying out the dust bin.
The Yeedi K600 is a surprisingly adept robot vacuum. If you really want a robot vacuum but are strapped for cash, this vacuum won’t disappoint.
The K700 is the next generation to the K600. It has a 300ML Water tank, a 600ML dustbin and boasts 2000Pa.
The Deebot N79S by ecovacs compares nicely if you’re looking for a robotic vacuum in the same price range that also has voice command and app control features.
