Maintain Gleaming Hard Floors, Every Day
Maintain gleaming hard floors, every day, with help from the Braava 380t Floor Mopping Robot. Smart navigation works like an indoor GPS to help Braava keep track of where it's been and where it needs to go. Choose from dry sweep or damp mop modes for a beautiful clean that suits your unique needs and home. Braava works great on all hard-surface floors, and at just 3.1" tall, is specifically designed to fit under most furniture, beds and kickboards. Easy, effortless and whisper quiet - Braava will clean your floors for you without disrupting your daily activities or sleep.
Braava's NorthStar Navigation system works like an indoor GPS, helping Braava keep track of where its been and where it still needs to go.
Simply attach a cloth, press the button for your desired mode and Braava gets to work. Then, when Braava is done cleaning, it returns to where it started and powers down - so you always know where to find it.
Braava cleans all hard-surface floors including tile, vinyl, hardwood, laminate, and more. Simply choose from two modes - dry sweeping or damp mopping - for the quick surface clean you want.
NorthStar Navigation Cube
The NorthStar Navigation Cube projects a signal that Braava uses to determine its location. As Braava cleans, it uses this signal to build a map of the area, mapping walls, obstacles and drop-offs as it encounters them.
Two Cleaning Modes
In dry sweep mode, Braava moves in straight lines back and forth to pick up dust, dirt and hair.
In damp mop mode, Braava uses a special back-and-forth action to pull deeper dirt and grime off your floors.
Designed to mop floors quickly and efficiently, the new iRobot Braava Floor Mopping Robot systematically covers your entire floor in a single pass. Braava uses disposable or microfiber cleaning cloths to pick up dirt, hair and dust from all your hardsurface floors including tile, vinyl, hardwood and laminate. Just attach a cloth, set Braava down, press a button and off it goes, using advanced robotic technology to track where it's been and where it needs to go. It's whisper-quiet too, so you can go about your daily activities without disruption. The included Turbo Charge Cradle is a convenient, one-stop charging and storage space, charging Braava 380t in as fast as two hours. Braava uses either disposable cleaning cloths, including Swiffer brand, or reusable microfiber cloths to remove dirt, dust and hair from your floors so you don't have to. Braava has two cleaning modes to choose from depending on the job you need done. In sweep mode, Braava dry mops your floors moving in straight lines using dry cleaning cloths. In mop mode, Braava uses a special back-and-forth mopping action and damp cleaning cloths to lift surface dirt and grime off your floors. With the Pro-Clean System included in Braava 380t, a special Reservoir Cleaning Pad dispenses liquid throughout the cleaning cycle to keep the cloth damp. Cleaning cloths are easy to attach and remove with Braava's removable magnetic multi-purpose cleaning pad. The NorthStar Navigation System 2 works like an indoor GPS that helps Braava keep track of where it has been and where it needs to go. The NorthStar Navigation Cube projects a signal that Braava uses to determine its location. Additional NorthStar Navigation Cubes can be purchased for the Braava 380t to expand the robot's dry mopping capabilities for bigger homes. As Braava cleans, it builds a map of the area, mapping walls, obstacles and drop-offs as it encounters them.

I assumed that, because this one is over $110 more than the smaller white mop by iRobot, it would be better. No ma'am!
This mop makes cleaning the floors ten times more tedious and 15 times less effective than just grabbing the Swiffer Wet Jet. Actually, since you can only put water in this, it's nowhere near as good.
While the smaller, cheaper, white version iRobot Braava jet 240 Mopping Robot - Robotic Mop sprays cleaning fluid/water out in front of it and mops it up (like a wet jet), this version does not. It just smears a TINY amount of water out of the leak hole in the water cavity. That holds almost nothing anyway. The only way I can actually get the floors wet enough is to soak the pad itself before I put it on the mop. Then, ten minutes later, its dried out again and I have to stop the robot and take off the pad and wet it again. Meanwhile, the water cavity has 85% of the water still in it.
Streaks galore on my wood floors. Don't get streaks with a Wet Jet.
The small white one works with an app on my smartphone. For $100 more, does this one? NO!
The cheaper white version has a vibrating head to scrub dirt and any stickiness from spills off. For $100 more, this one just smears dust over any any sticky spots and makes them dark!
The white, cheaper version automatically knows whether to do wet mopping, damp mopping, or dry sweeping. For $100 more, this crap version doesn't know what to do unless you tell it.
The cheaper, white version has three cleaning modes: wet, damp, dry. For $100 more, you get the subtracted benefit of only two modes: dry and "dry with a small wet streak down the middle"
The quick overview is that this has two different 'pads'...these pads are to what you attach either a) the sweeper cloth, or b) the mopping cloth/wipe.
The sweep function is basically dusting your floor - this is *not* a vacuum, and there is no dirt container. But it does a great job for what it is. That said, I use the Braava primarily for mopping (I have a Roomba (the iRobot Roomba and an ILIFE V5s Robot Vacuum Cleaner with Water Tank Mopping), so the rest of my review will be about that function.
The pad for the mopping cloth or wipe has a reservoir in the form of two channels running along the long sides of the pad; it also has a little bit of fabric in the center that wicks water from the reservoir onto the mopping cloth or wipe to keep it moist while mopping. It's a pretty ingenious design.
Why do I keep distinguishing between the mopping cloth, and a wipe?
Because this mopbot works with Swiffer wet mop refill wipes! (These: Swiffer Sweeper Wet Mopping Cloth Refills)
The way the guidance system works is that you set the "GPS for your floor" cube somewhere in the room that you are going to have the Braava 'sweep' or mop, making sure that the cube has a clear view of the ceiling (so the Braava can connect with the cube's onboard Northstar Navigation system), and once the Braava is connected to the cube it maps the room, providing guidance for the Braava as to where to go.
First, yes, it works!
Second, it's incredibly quiet. So quiet that it doesn't even bother the dog or cat! Or me, when I'm working on my computer in the same room.
Third, it fits *under the bed* (and I have a low bed!)
Fourth, it works. (Had to say that twice. :-) ).
It's not fast. But then, it's not taking up *your* time. If it takes 30-45 minutes or more to mop the floor, so what? You're still spending 0 minutes mopping your floor. :-)
So, why the removal of 1 star? On the mopping pad there are two velcro strips. The adhesive on the back of these velcro strips pretty much immediately started coming loose - after the very first use. This can be fixed with a judicious application of super glue, but seriously? If I'm paying $250 for a high tech *mopping* device, maybe you can use a slightly better quality of adhesive in an area that you know is going to be subjected to moisture?
Overall, I highly recommend this device, but add this to your order (I chose this one because I like the way it applies the best, and have never run into the issue of the tip drying out): Loctite Ultra Gel Control Super Glue
I don't normally write reviews but figured since it's a new year I'd start. I also appreciate when consumers who actually purchased the item write the review. I did not receive any compensation or free product for writing this review. However, if anybody from iRobot reads this please see my constructive criticism at the bottom. Maybe we could discuss the algorithm used to diagnose robot issues. If Jeff Bezos is reading I will write reviews all day long for only 1000 Amazon stock options a year and quit my day job.
I originally purchased the Braava in September of 2013 after having success with the Roomba. It stopped working after a month and Amazon sent me a replacement. I also purchased an extra Northstar navigation cube and extra microfiber clothes. I use Bona hardwood cleaner solution on wood floors and Swiffer wet sweepers on tile. The robot comes with a reservoir pad and a pad that allows you to attach a Swiffer. The product is a little more difficult to use than the vacuuming robots but it gets the job done. The Northstar cubes need an unobstructed view of the ceiling and you have to pair them before starting. The manual has decent directions.
The robot had stopped working awhile back and I didn't bother to troubleshoot it. After buying a replacement battery for $11.50 it has been working fine. Originally I called iRobot to troubleshoot the robot and they weren't much help diagnosing the problem. When the robot is having issues the red light blinks a certain amount of times. The customer service rep asked how many times the red light was blinking. Once I gave them this information they told me it could be the charging dock, the robot, or the battery. That really narrowed it down. lol. They suggested plugging the AC adapter straight into the bottom of the robot overnight to bypass the charging dock. When that didn't work they suggested that I send it back and pay $150(shipping not included) for a refurbished model without the dock or buy a ridiculously overpriced battery from the iRobot website. I told them that I would start with replacing the battery and see how it worked. It's been working well so far but if it begins to start having issues I might take advantage of the replacement deal.
I have about 1,000 square feet of space in the kitchen and 2,000 in the living room. The Braava can only sufficiently clean one at a time. The robot does a good job covering most of the area. However, I move the cubes around different areas of the house, occasionally replace the cleaning solution or Swiffer, and alternate between the living room and kitchen between charges. I always use the sweeping mode because it seems to cover the greatest amount of area. The manual says to only use water buy I've been using diluted Bona for awhile with no issues. I have had to replace the reservoir pad but it had a crack which was most likely damage inflicted by somebody in my home. The robot is never going to scrub the floors as well as a human but will spend hours cleaning the floors. If you run it everyday for a few weeks that's a lot of cleaning that most of us don't have time for. I would run all your robots as much as you can in the beginning so if anything is defective you can send it back to Amazon and get a replacement. It's easier to deal with Amazon with returns than manufacturers. In the time lapse videos you can't see much difference after cleaning because I have been running the robot often since replacing the battery. I gave the product 4 stars because it has had issues over the years and iRobot was not very helpful with troubleshooting the device.
iRobot - I think your technology is amazing and originally your customer service followed suit. However, when I recently spoke with a customer service representative they seemed to not be very helpful and had little appreciation for loyal customers. I have purchased a total of 3 Braavas and 5 Roombas along with multiple replacement parts over the past several years. Most of the robots I gave to others as gifts. A friend of mine recently admitted that they hadn't used their Braava because it stopped working. My friend didn't want to tell me or attempt to troubleshoot it. They were not aware that iRobot customer service is usually very helpful and troubleshooting the robot is simple. Asking how many lights are blinking on the Braava and then telling me to replace the entire unit before replacing the battery is preposterous. I know times have been great with low interest rates and everybody spending beyond their means, but there may be a correction soon. When that time comes you need to ask yourself if you want to sell to the masses and rely on volume and questionable customer service practices or focus on the demographic that got you to where you are in the first place. Costco is an example of a company that has survived during feast and famine by relying on good quality and customer service. Take a look at the demographic they appeal to and how they've faired with fluctuations in the economy. Just my two cents.
