This Special Edition Roomba Discovery comes with an Advanced Power Supply (APS) Fast Charger that requires under 3 hours for a full charge, and an APS Battery for 120 minutes of cleaning time.

An Aware™ Intelligence System - sensors that can monitor and adjust the robot's behavior.
A beater brush assembly for optimum cleaning.

Special Features:

  • Self-charging home base
  • Fast charging wall mount
  • 2 Virtual Walls - to bar the robot from certain doorways or areas
  • Remote control

Standard Features:

Dirt Detection Capability
Stair Avoidance System
Surface Transitioning - from floor to carpet
Large Bagless Debris Bin
Will automatically return to home base when done, or battery is low

Cleaning Ability:

The Roomba is designed with a low profile to easily go under furniture for thorough cleaning. It is capable of detecting that a certain area needs further cleaning, as well as ensuring that the whole area is vacuumed, before considering the cleaning cycle ended.

Optional Accessories Worth Considering:

The iRobot Scheduler would certainly optimize cleaning patterns, a spare APS battery could come in very handy for those unexpected cleaning jobs, and a Discovery Replenish kit with bristle and beater brush, and 3 filters would get you off to a good start.

Warranty :

The Roomba Discovery SE comes with a 1 year Manufacturer's Warranty

Other Information:

Of all the vacuum robots on the market, this is the model that I feel is not only affordable, but gives you the most value for your money. When compared to the other Roomba models, (there are six), this unit has the best features and the largest debris receptacle.
