Need help please , love my little Kogan
Bought the R10 a few years ago, online from Kogan great little vacuum has done a great job on my Lino and hard flooring, sadly it now playing up, keeps going forward back around in circle , I’ve cleaned sensors , unplugged battery, checked bumper sensor, tried to control with remote to make it run forward which it seems to be fighting and wanting to go backwards, would love some advice on what could be the problem, otherwise I will need to upgrade sooner than later.
Great for the price
Works best on my wooden floors. It's better than nothing on carpet - still fills up it's bin container with fluff and mess so it's doing something - but on the wooden floors it's excellent.
It takes a long time to charge, and runs out of battery in less than my whole house. But easily does a couple of rooms to a great standard before needing to recharge.
It can get on and off the carpet area rug from/to my hard floors. I have an outdoor coir doormat on the inside of my front door and it can't get up onto that, it gets stuck and needs rescuing.... It fits under all the beds and couches in my house, gets stuck under the edge of the recliner chair. The bin container is tiny, but I expect they generally are in robot vacuums... I've never had one before so I'm not missing any of the fancier options that they come with like invisible barriers and returning home to charging dock etc. This is a very basic model - you plug it in with a plug when it needs to charge. It just stops wherever it dies. But I only paid $89.99 for it so I am more than happy! It comes with a remote that we don't use at all. We just push it on and off on the machine itself and that's all we've needed to do. You can change the mode from a zigzag to 'random'. I wanted it for a quick pick up in between me doing the vacuuming properly, mainly in the kitchen after the kids drop breakfast crumbs everywhere, and in the laundry after the cats spill biscuits all over the floor. For both of these it works perfectly and I'm very happy.

Don't expect it to do a decent job
I only use it on tiles, and only when I have no time to vacuum myself. Doesn't cover half the floor surface, and repeats the same spots over and over.

I wouldn’t bother
I wouldn’t bother unless you have a house where you can close all doors and have completely flat surfaces, you will need to remove everything from your floor that it could get caught on or under. It does suck up the dirt but not very powerful at all, I’m very disappointed! Thumbs down

Great for its value!
The kogan R10 easy clean robot vacuum is very easy to use! Plug it in and let it charge then it's time day for its use! I love mine because it works really well for hard flooring which I have in my home it doesn't do too well on carpet because this particular one isn't suppose to be on carpet!! It works great for me and saves me hell slot of time and my back isn't broken anymore!! It picks up everything but make sure you pick up big bits of rubbish before you let the robot do it's thing! Love it and just amazing! You should try it it's affordable

Works good enough
Using this device on my hardwood floors. It seems to move around ok, finding a path around most of the house.
It doesn't like rugs or floor mats and will bunch them up and get stuck.
It has a 15 to 20 minute run time on a full charge.
I was surprised how much dust it found.
Overall, good for the $59 I paid.
Regretful impulse buy
Saw this was on sale for $100 plus postage. I hate vacuuming, and it had ok reviews, so it seemed like a great idea. I read the instructions, did the first charge, which requires a 6 hour charge minimum, according to the booklet. The remote for the vacuum didn't come with batteries included, so I just had to hit the big button on the machine and go.
I immediately began laughing at how bad it was. The second star is purely for the comedic value. The poor little thing just rolls around, thumping into everything like some wounded blind turtle. ...It doesn't seem to have the common sense to just do a 180, and instead only pivots at weird 45 degree angles, which meant that in my house, it kept gravitating to a corner between my table and buffet. After a minute of helplessly bumping around, stuck in the corner, it just gave up and shut itself down. Can't blame it really. Take 2, I tried the kitchen. Started it off straight out of a corner, it immediately knocked over the plate of dog kibble, picked up 1 or 2 of the bits it had just spilled, and got it's side stuck under the fridge. Ok, so the kitchen was a no-go, but maybe the living room might have luck. Nope. Zoomed straight under the entertainment unit and got stuck on an extension lead, and on the next attempt, got stuck on the <1cm edge of the flat rug. After 4 shutdowns in 10 minutes, I decided to open it up and check the catcher, and discovered that it was smaller than a dryer's lint filter. I was surprised to see that it had picked up a bit of dirt, dust and dog hair, considering the areas it had passed over still had visible signs of dust left behind. All in all, this is the cheapest option for a reason. It might pick up bits of dust here and there, but it doesn't seem to be able to be relied upon to do a consistent job, and it proves to be a giant nuisance having to constantly rescue and reboot it, and if by chance it makes it through 10 minutes without shutting down, emptying the tiny dust catcher. My plan is to return this item, and instead opt for a hand stick vacuum instead.
Convenient, easy and useful.
This small vacuum cleaner is very useful. Tried over a few months, it proved quite reliable. It's suction power is excellent. It's very easy to clean. Can do the floor automatically, going around randomly, or can be guided by the owner. It's rather quiet, and can vacuum tile floors or carpeted floors. Price was very reasonable. I'd recommend this appliance without hesitation.
Questions & Answers
Will it work on a dark gray tile or dark brown carpet? I heard they can't map easily on dark
Hi Becca, thank you for your question.
This particular model has a safety feature which can be triggered by dark coloured carpets, causing it to shut off. While it should be fine on your tiles, dep...ending on how dark your carpets are, it may have an issue with them.
