Shark -AI -Self-Empty- XL RV2502AE- Review

Shark AI Self-Empty XL RV2502AE Review

The first self-emptying robot vacuum from Shark received great praise for its superior cleaning abilities and hassle-free bagless design. The model that replaces it includes a bigger dustbin, more battery lasts, and a new UltraClean Mode for rugs and pet hair. Additionally, it receives AI-driven laser tracking capabilities, albeit our testing showed that it didn’t always successfully avoid obstacles.

Setup up and self-Emptying XL:

The Shark AI is easy to set up, but for the best results, your home must be prepared. You may control it with your voice using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, as well as the SharkClean app (available for Android and iOS). Scheduler, area cleanup, virtual no-go zones, and cleanup record reports are examples of clever capabilities.

The first time you use the Shark AI robot vacuum, it draws a map of your house. You can alter the map by adding labels to certain rooms and designating no-go and high-traffic areas. A function called “evacuate and resume” is designed for pet-friendly houses so your animals can tidy up while you’re away. Three power settings are available for the robot: Eco, Normal (the usual setting), and Max, which rapidly depletes the battery.

 Room, Zone, and Spot cleaning choices are available in the app if you don’t want the robot vacuuming your entire home. In UltraClean mode, the robot boosts its cleaning power and twice crosshatches the chosen room or area with its vacuum. Asking Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa to start cleaning with a command like “Alexa, tell Shark to start cleaning” works perfectly.

Cleaning Performance and Battery Life:

The Shark AI robot vacuum does not bounce back and forth between walls; it cleans in parallel lines. The Shark AI gathered up more material from my off-white moderate wall-to-wall rug than most other robot vacuums because of its new UltraClean mode.

 I favor the Roomba j7+ for households with lots of debris or pets who are prone to accidents. The Deebot Ozmo T8 AIVI had the greatest testing lifespan of any robot vacuum we’ve evaluated at 170 minutes. Over hard surfaces, the Shark AI runs at about 60 dB, and over the carpet, at about 55 dB. The volume of an average conversation or air – conditioning is what it sounds like in Standard mode.

Shark AI vs. Shark IQ:

Shark AI Self-Empty XL (RV2502AE),  debuted in late 2021. The Shark IQ, the firm’s 1st robot vacuum with autonomous trash clearing, debuted in 2020. The iRobot Roomba i3+ is another self-emptying model that falls within Shark AI’s pricing range.

The majority of competing products move the contents of their bins into an allergen-sealed bag, in contrast to Shark’s self-emptying robot vacuums, which use a bagless approach. According to HEPA standards, the ground station cylinder captures 99.97% of dirt and pollen as small as 0.3 microns. This model avoids things four inches or taller by using Superintelligent (AI) Laser Guidance technology.

 Due to its elevated LiDAR sensor, the Shark AI is one of the highest robot vacuums we’ve evaluated. It is marginally larger than the Shark IQ, measuring 13.7 inches in diameter and 4.1 inches in height. The Eufy RoboVac G30 is a shortened robot vacuum that can fit under reduced decor if you’re looking for one.


  • outstanding cleaning results
  • Large bases only require occasional, roughly bimonthly, emptying.
  • New UltraClean setting for carpets and pet hair
  • The battery capacity of two hours


  • sometimes got trapped Loud

Conclusion: Although its AI Laser Navigation technology isn’t perfect, the Shark AI Self-Empty XL RV2502AE is an excellent robot vacuum with twice the dustbin volume and greater battery life than its exceptional model.
