Stone T6 sweeping robot is a good example of good flow

Although the main products nowadays basically do not have the aura of Xiaomi, in the current sweeping robot market, Stone Technology has undoubtedly stood firm. Their latest flagship machine, the T6, still chooses the same sweeping and sliding direction as last year’s S5, and has made targeted improvements in terms of noise control, regional planning, and consumable design. If it is calculated in the mobile phone industry, Stone T6 sweeping robot will be more in line with our definition of the “s” upgrade. Is it worth the price of $2,799 (before the discount)? You may wish to listen to the author’s experience after using it for a while.

First of all, in appearance, it can be seen that T6 and S5 are homologous. However, the overall shape of the new machine is more rounded, and the chamfered surface of the top of the machine is more like the style of the Mijia robot. It is not as obvious as the S5. In the eyes of the individual, this kind of appearance will be more convenient to integrate into the home environment, and the visual presentation will be relatively weaker. In terms of body size, the T6’s measurements are exactly the same as the previous generation, and the size on the plane is 353 x 350mm. The height of the top laser ranging sensor is 96.5mm, so the passing ability in the horizontal and vertical directions is exactly the same as that of the S5.

Many people hope that the last place can be improved, and the manufacturers are basically doing it now.

The top of the device is divided into two sections by a line, one side is a top cover that can be turned up, and the control button is placed on the other side. This time, the stone still provides three buttons on the top surface of the machine. The corresponding functions are partial cleaning, switch/full cleaning, and return charges. Among them, the switch key also has the indicator function, which can display the status of battery level, charging, fault, etc. by different colors. However, unlike the design of the three buttons on the S5, the three buttons of the Stone T6 sweeping robot are in the form of a strip of transparent plastic. In addition, in terms of overall color matching, this machine will provide silver (white body with silver lines), rose gold (white body with pink lines) and pure black, which should be able to meet the difference between deep and light color decoration. need.

In addition to the fuselage lines, the T6 also has a returning design, which is the same as the original Mijia robot, which can open the back cover to hide the charging of the excess wires. I used to say that when I experienced S5, it was a pity that the stone removed the charging cable storage function. Now that the new machine can add this feature back, it is a wish of many OCD users. However, the charging contact of the T6 is still at the bottom of the device like the S5. The robot has to climb a little to charge the base. It is also worth mentioning that the stability of the new version of the charging stand is stronger than in the past, and the base placed on the ground will not be easily smashed by the passing robot.

After turning over the T6, it seems that there is not much difference with the S5 at first glance, but in fact, the stone has some very practical modifications. Let’s talk about the middle dust brush, and the bristle material is replaced with a more durable special nylon. Moreover, in order to facilitate the cleaning of the hair wrapped around the shaft, the factory also adjusted the structure of the left and right ends of the roller. The new design is able to remove the fixings on both sides, which makes the dust brushing easier. However, the overall shape and size of the brush are exactly the same as that used by the S5 and Mijia robots. That is to say, if you are an old user of the stone and have more old dust brush accessories, you can continue to use it on the T6, but it will not be as convenient as the new version. At the same time, if there are two products mentioned above in your home, you need to change the dust brush in the future, just buy a new version.

At the same time, the “downward support” is also the mapping module, and the Stone T6 sweeping robot can be used to fit on the S5. However, because the new product has a function of detecting the position of the carriage, the old module of the S5 cannot be used on the T6. As for the new version, there are two main improvements in function. One is to allow the user to adjust the two-stage water output to meet different cleaning needs. The other is to provide a disposable rag option in addition to the washable rag, which will undoubtedly become a lazy person. Gospel. The one-piece disposable mop can meet the “45 to 60-minute wet drag” at a cost of 60 pieces and 15$.

However, the compatibility of the module means that the T6 relies on gravity to let the rag pass over the ground when mopping the ground. Therefore, the main function is to take away the dust, and at most, to erase some traces of lightness. Stubborn stains still have to be solved by human intervention, but to put it this way, this mopping floor module can be used to maintain daily cleaning in conjunction with the robot’s pre-cleaning operations. In addition, the T6’s 0.48L dust box (and its filter) and side brush are also the same as the S5, the new product’s overall inheritance and versatility are kept relatively good.

2,000Pa suction, 2cm obstacle, 74.88Wh battery (14.4V, 5,200mAh) These specifications, T6 remain the same as S5, so the two are basically consistent in dust removal, action, and endurance. After switching to the new 30.5mm motor and improving the filling of the muffler and the noise-reducing air screen, the noise control of the T6 became one of the biggest selling points. In the actual test, the noise it emits is basically 4 to 6 decibels lower than S5 in each mode (the T6 is about 56 decibels when it is most noisy in Max mode), and the difference in the sense of hearing is still clearly perceived.

In terms of map planning, the new algorithm used by T6 will set the route based on the principle of long-edge priority, and the cleaning efficiency will be higher when cleaning the rectangular area. Another very useful new feature is partition management. After the map saves option is turned on, the device records and automatically partitions the cleaned area. However, because it is still a new function in the public beta, the accuracy of the T6 automatic division still has no small room for improvement. But fortunately, manual fine-tuning is not difficult, and in general, just one adjustment is enough. After the map of the partition is completed as needed, the robot can go to the specified range for regional cleaning next time.

For users with a large housing area, this improvement combined with scheduled cleaning can greatly improve the efficiency of the robot. For example, during the test, the author will let the Stone T6 sweeping robot clean the room far away from the bedroom when the person is not awake in the morning. After getting out of bed, let it enter the bedroom so that people are relatively undisturbed, and between cleaning and cleaning, the robot can also get a chance to rest back to the charging stand to supplement the power. At the same time, for some locations that need to be taken care of, you can also set up multiple cleanings in one day. At present, there are other robots in the market that have the partition function, but I have not experienced it, so I can’t evaluate it. However, the individual’s plan for the stone is quite satisfactory. After the use, the cleaning plan at home is much more flexible than in the past.

Looking back, the one-time mop, quick-release roller brush, and storage cradle have many high-profile characteristics in the existing customer base. Stones are all satisfied once on the Stone T6 sweeping robot machine. At the same time, the new noise reduction design and partitioning function have really come in handy, coupled with the good versatility of the accessories, the author believes that it is an S5 qualified upgrade should not be too much. Can have such performance, but also make people have higher expectations for the future of stone technology. After the reinforcement of the “s”, the next time should be the real innovation continued?
