iRobot Roomba j7+ review

iRobot Roomba j7+ review

The built-in obstacle avoidance technology in the iRobot Roomba j7+ detects and avoids common objects such as pet waste and wires. The robot automatically empties its rubbish into an allergen-sealed bag when it docks after a cleaning run. When the robot runs out of power, it will journey back to its base to recharge and then resume where it left off. Our review discovered a robot vacuum that is suited for homes with accident-prone pets and the humans who love them when paired with a new self-emptying Clean Base.


A navigation sensor is recessed into the very front of the iRobot Roomba j7+ vacuum. This improvement provides the bot the ability to recognize obstacles, and the LED headlight that illuminates the path while it cleans makes it much more obvious. The Clean Base is shorter and squatter than the previous version, measuring only 13.25 inches tall vs 19 inches for the earlier base. Although the bin emptying operation is still extremely loud, it only takes less than 10 seconds.

Setup, app, and mapping:

The iRobot Home app is used to control the iRobot Roomba j7+ (Android and iOS). The software includes a lot of functionality that is presented in a friendly way, however, it lacks granular controls like the Samsung JetBot AI+. A LiDAR sensor is used by other robot vacuums, such as the Roborock S6 MaxV and Eufy X8 Hybrid, to swiftly map the pattern of a floor. When an electrical cord or a tennis ball is detected as a barrier, an app allows you to create Keep Out Zones. After hitting impediments, the Samsung JetBot AI+ provides the same tidying up service, which is useful.

Obstacle Avoidance Test:

The Roomba j7+ robot vacuum from iRobot now detects and avoids wires, headphones, and pet waste. If it fails to pick up solid pet feces, iRobot has issued the Pet Owner Official Promise to clean your home. Using sensors and front-facing cameras, built-in technology informs you when it detects a hazard or obstruction.

Cleaning Speed Test:

While cleaning speed isn’t everything, the Roomba j7+ performed admirably in our tests. It was able to cruise our entire region without difficulty as long as there was sufficient lighting. It never became stuck, dodged obstructions, or failed to return to its charging station.

Vacuuming performance:

In both our hardwood and carpet lab tests, the iRobot Roomba j7+ performs admirably. However, it didn’t perform as well as the finest robot vacuums for pet hair, picking up only 82.5 percent of our dog’s hair. A medium-sized dog toy was not recognized as an impediment, but with software updates, it should learn to recognize shoes and socks in the future. In carpet lab testing, the iRobot Roomba j7+ performed admirably, picking up 99.35 percent of cereal and 94.75 percent of kitty litter on bare floors. However, compared to the Roborock S4 Max and S6 MaxV, it could have done a better job with dog fur, picking up only 72.5 percent of it. The Eufy RoboVac X8 Hybrid and Samsung’s JetBot AI+ did a better job cleaning dog fur.

Noise test:

We used a sound meter app to measure the noise generated by the Roomba j7+ vacuum on a hardwood floor and a high-pile carpet.

Hair test:

The Roomba j7+ robot vacuum is one of the few vacuums on the market that can remove hair without wrapping itself around the brush roll. The twin rubber brushes did an excellent job of catching long strands of hair and preventing them from being tangled in either of the brushes.

Navigation test:

The Roomba j7+ was put to the test at our office and studio during the day and at night to see how effectively it navigated and cleaned. This is a common limitation among several robot vacuum brands.


  • Ensure that your pet does not produce any garbage. 
  • The base that automatically depletes 
  • Suggestions intelligently Zones where no one is allowed to enter 
  • Cleans the region regularly. 
  • Seldom gets stuck. 
  • An easy-to-use companion app


  • Pricey 
  • Battery capacity is poor.


Despite its high price, iRobot’s Roomba j7+ robot vacuum boasts plenty of smarts, including a guarantee against pet waste and a self-emptying base that eliminates the need to lift a finger.
